I wil continue the exact same regimen posted here in my folki:
 
I will be using Freetrees Bohemian Bulk 20". I haven't decided yet if I am going to cut it in half yet cause 20" is pretty long for me. But you will see when i post pics what i decided to do.
 
I will be doing my own installs, i will post pics of my braiding pattern and installs later today or tomorrow morning when I finish.
 
Happy growing ladies

Hey ladies i finished my 1st crochet braids and I am vey pleased. I made a few mistakes but I will correct that next time: mainly in my braiding pattern. It took a little getting use to using the needle and tieng the knots but once i fiigure that out I was done in 1 hour. So it doesn't take long at all. Over all it took 2 1/2 hours, I prob can cut it to 1 1/2 hour next time. I cut it into a short bob style (kids would pull it), I used Freetress bohemian 20" cut it in half so it was 10 inches long.

It took 2 packs cut in half (so it was like using 4 packs), but I used way to much hair and had to thin it out alot. So next time I will try to use only 1 pack cut in half. so it would be like using 2 packs of hair.
Here's a check out my folki to see them all:

Looks like this is your natural hair. Can you ventilate as wanted?

Yes you can ventilate, I just thin it out, but next time Imma use a specific method for each braid and break the bulk hair apart more.
Thank you
