Details of the Style
1.Shampooed and deep conditioned hair.
2. Stretched the hair using a combination of air drying and a little heat once the hair was mostly dry. See how to stretch natural hair here.
3. Moisturized and sealed each section before twisting

Additional Style Ideas
1. Once all twisted, roll ends on perming rods to ensure curl definition for a possible twist-out.  See my INSTAGRAM
2. Using bobby pins, you can gather all of the hair into a side bun. See my INSTAGRAM

Hi youre right i come here all the time and dont say anything! do you have any suggestions or tips on twisting the back of your hair. I’m decent in the front but any style in the back can on be single two strand twist! help i want to do more but im about to get a perm.

Hi Dwan, HALT! Chemically relaxing your hair is a drastic choice when frustrated with your natural hair. Understand that I am pretty verse with styling my hair because I have been doing it for almost 15 years. Learning to how maneuver the back of your hair will take some time. Back in the day I would often consider just cutting my hair completely off when I became frustrated. During these times I opted for single braids with extensions. That always gave me time to cool off. Consider putting your hair away and give yourself and your hair a break.

Yes! Right night now I have a Kelis weave in for a break from this bush!!! I cant do hair to save my life. The only natural style I can seem to pull off successfully is your signature style and thats it. When I trying anything else I just get mad LOL

I am going to take a break for about 2 months, then I will get back on my natural hair styling grind. However, I am at mid back length and would love to hit waist length so I am contemplating keeping in my weave for a while. I dont know
