I washed, conditioned and moisturized my hair. I two strand twisted my hair and allowed it to air dry while I was deciding what to do. I went to the beauty store and bought four bags of the 99 cents braiding hair. I think the stuffed twist look better with the cheap hair.
To do this style you want to start by placing a small pony tail in the back of your hair, this will serve as your base and is where you will start to pin your bun. Part and gel a section of your hair. Separate the weave and use a cigarette lighter to burn the hair right in the bend of the weave. Pressed the burned piece to form a point. Use the burned piece at the start of your twist and then twist your hair over the weave.
There you have it, a simple stuffed twist. Twist the weave all the way to the end and it will coil, pin the end into the base pony tail and start with a new section.

Pre-pooing should be practiced at least once a week before shampooing. You can buy a pre-shampoo hair treatment or simply mix your own by raiding your kitchen cabinet for a few key ingredients. You will need a combination of oil and conditioner or moisturizer.
Simply mix and apply to your hair and scalp to leave for 30 minutes with or without heat. Rinse, shampoo, condition and style.
There’s an unlimited combination of items that can be used as a pre-poo. I’ll list both oils and conditioners or moisturizers that can be mixed for a pre-poo.
Oils - Avocado, Coconut, Castor, Olive
Moisturizers or Conditioners – Honey, Molasses, Shae Butter, Conditioner
Have fun mixing and let me know how it turns out or if you have a pre-poo recipe that you would like to share with me.
Happy Hair Growth
