I made my own and the steps are on page 23 above.  Here is the link - I hope it works.

Moisturizing is key, we must, must keep our natural hair in good condition.  YOU never want to be in the position where you can NEVER wear your natural hair out.  Here is a video where she is going to show how to do the LCOC method which is liquid, conditioner, oil and conditioner. 
 
I have done different versions of this method and I try my best to keep my natural hair in a condition where I can at least do a ponytail as needed.  Now will this method make your natural hair grow down to the bottom of your back...NO...genetics do play a role, all I can do is take care of my hair the best I can and hope for healthy hair which will grow.
 
In the video below if you need to speed up the method and application it starts at 3:18

I just found this sister today, her you tube channel focuses on natural hair care and protective styles.  I love this style, I do not have enough length in the front for the twist BUT...I can do the bun in the back. SO the purpose is to see these videos and learn from them and understand that YOU might have to TWEAK the style for your hair length.  But this is beautiful.

hey ladies.... I found a video today that is discussing the basics of cutting the lace off wigs, it is focusing on the hard lace wigs which is mostly what we find in the BSS.  This man has great video and I think we can all learn a lot from him.

Today I found a video I'd like to share with you.   First off, he is showing if you are attaching a lace wig and don't want to use tape what you can do.   yes, he is showing hair pins but the point is he has no hair on his head.  SO he can't do the "normal" way of pinning the wig to your natural hair.
 
This tip is good for ladies who do a COMPLETE bald big chop.   Also the method is also good for anyone to secure their wigs who may want to NOT Pin into their edges.
 
Also, he is using an OLD wig, so don't miss the message focusing on the wig, how it looks on his head or anything else.

Here is a quick video showing how to pin your wig up.  We have all seen this before in pictures and with scarves.  But this video will show you step by step.  Once again, he is using an old wig, so don't miss the message focusing on the color of the wig.

Ladies - This is a perfect WORK WIG for me, I saw this today and it is a FREETRESS L part wig.  Now for those who might not know.
 
L part wigs are wigs with a LONG part, which you WILL NEED to put concealer on to make it look real.  Also, this type of wig allows you to CUT the part and pull out your OWN hair, which I NEVER do because my hair would not match the texture.
 
See that is the point, if you cut it open then you have to match the color and texture.
 
Also, this wig is good for BEGINNERS starting out with wigs cause it is not too LONG or attention getting.  Now with freetress, please understand...
 
1) It will be shiny, so you will need to either do the deodorant trick to take the shine down, some people use baby powder, but YOU MUST DO SOMETHING BECAUSE THE HAIR IS GOING TO LOOK SUPER SHINY.
 
2) Freetress wigs are DARK. so a 1 is so so black it looks crazy, I never order a 1 or 1B in Freetress.  Their color 2 looks like a 1.  So I always order a color 2 if I want a black shade.
 
3) You might need to tweak, no wig is perfect, you might need to cut out a track or two at the bottom if it is too full for you.  Or make a tweak by cutting the bang to frame the face.
 
Well I hope this helps....
