NOt me but you get the idea- even though I saw these vid I was swayed by the fingercomer hype and spen more money than I should have just trying to save someone so $$$$ I guess every Marley hair is not the same but there are a few out there That will work for the exact same Look

I want to try these.  A couple of youtubers have tutorials.  I'm trying to see the difference between using the havanna hair versus using marley hair.  I do not appreciate their shipping prices, lol. It's $13 a pack and then about $11 in shipping.  I want them long as well.
No contest, you will not get the same look if you use the Marley braid hair. That being said, if you choose to still use it, brush the marley braid hair out before using it, other wise your twists will have crinkles in them. You want your twist to be smooth. Brushing the hair out will help you achieve this look, but there is much better hair to use than the marley braid, hair.
Public Service : this look can be done with Marley hair just got done with this style I did my self I spent about $48 at fingercomber and I just compared some Marley Hair I had lying around and its the sameConfusedOuch I guess it depends on what brand you use: Freetress equal is a good marley braid hair for this style *wish I would have know could have save myself a few BUCKs!
I said it could be done, you can twist with whatever hair you want. Now your finished product will depend on the type of twist hair you use. I like a smooth, soft looking twist, the marley hair looks rough and it feels rough.

again i think it depends on what brand of marley hair you use I have in the FC hair now and it feels like regular synthitic marley hair.... the bran i use is called rasta.... something I also heard the free tress marley hair is good to use IMO i dont think th FC hair is worth the money its not a dramtic diffrence

Im workng on some marley twists now..problem is my hair is only about 2 inches long and my motor skills are subpar, so the invisible method is hard as fack. Im using 2 pieces of hair for each individual as I want them to be long, thick and kinda dredish instead of small and neat. I used the cheapest Marley hair I could find at the BSS..$4.99/pack, I bought 4 (#2) but will probably only use 3. I'll post pics when I get off work

I did mine with Marley hair and I love them.
I watched a YouTube video and they did it with Marley hair.

I didn't want to spend the extra money and I'm glad I didn't
