Default I feel silly for asking but...

I'm trying to learn all of these new methods for growing out my hair, but I lack a few skills..
I don't know how to Braid and Twist my Hair /:
Braid as in a "Fishbone" and/or "Scalp Braid".
Same with the Twists- on the Scalp or lose.
I wanted to try a Braid out with my hair tonight, but again I'm a little handicapped! Lol
So I ask you, how do I Braid my Hair?!!

It's not a silly question. Have you ever braided anyone's hair before.

Don't fret, you can also go to your nearest beauty college and see if they can braid it for you. They only charge about $6-$9 cause they're in school.

Its not stupid. I'm learning how to flat twist my hair via youtube. Go on youtube. That's what I'm doing.

Don't feel silly!!! I didn't learn how to braid my hair till I was 16 and I STILL can't get the hang of French braiding. Just like pretty much everything, we're not born knowing this stuff. This is why Youtube was invented!!
2a, fine-med. text, normal porosity (I think)

mod-CG since December '10

I have Celiac's Disease so no gluten please!

My hair is basically my hobby!!

no its not silly braiding does take awhile to get the hang of. i thought myself how to french braid i just watched videos on youtube and did it everyday that would be ya best bet

my hair: 3c, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
my hair loves conditioner only styling!
my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.

I also blog about my hair journey, please feel free to read and comment/ask questions http://www.naturallycurly.com/blogs/...air-blogs/2494

Amen to that lol youtube taught me how to do almost everything I know how to do pertaining to styling my hair. I had been trying to do the two strand flat twist for a while now, so I finally sat down and studied a few videos and got the hang of it
