I've always wanted to do different protective styles using Marley and Kanekelon hair, and that's what I've been doing lately. The half halo braids took about a pack and a half of hair. The twists below took about 5 or 6 packs of hair. I used about 5 sections of Marley hair for each twist.
Washing the hair can save you money. Each pack of hair is about $5.00. It might not be a lot, but why spend the money if it's not necessary?
Don't be afraid to experiment with the hair. There's times where I style my hair and take it out because I don't like it. That was the case with the style below. I had the braids pinned up in a different way in the beginning. That's why the hair is a little frizzy.
