So I really wanted some yarn braids. I watched Blackonyx77 on youtube and decided to have my friend do them. I hate them!!
It's the color, I don't know why I got brown yarn knowing my hair is not that color brown. But yarn is different than braiding hair, it doesn't come in a thousand different colors. So, who gets yarn braids, and what kind of yarn do you use? I need something with more color options. I used the same kind Onyx did it had a big red heart on it. Got them yesterday, plan on cutting them out tomorrow.
Thanks

I use Lion brand yarn "Homespun". I usually use black. I think they have a few different colors

Thank you for responding. I'll go find some of this. I'm so upset I sat for all those hours for nothing!
I also need to find more pics online of these braids.
Thanks again!

I do Honesty's version of yarn braids. They're more like twists than braids though. But I think they are alot easier to maintain than braiding all the way down:  http://public.fotki.com/Honesty/mi-vida/yarn-twist-how-to/yarn-twist-how-to/

Yup, will definately be getting this type of yarn. It's thicker than what I used. I see she only needed one strand per braid/twist. I was using 3 strands, when folded over it ended up being 6. Will try this method as well. I noticed she said she didn't moisturize the yarn before hand. That's the one thing that I will carry over from Blackonyx77.

Thank you sooo much

You're welcome!

Also, CincygirlD, I forgot to mention that the only thing I don't follow in Honesty's instructions is sealing the braids with a braid sealer. I have one, and tried to use it but it didn't melt the yarn well. It did leave me with some nice rastafarian-esque ends though Thumbs%20Up. To seal the braids, I just slip knot the ends and leave a bit out.

The homespun looks really good.

ALSO, (wow, I'm out of it today) I combined Honesty's tutorial with Delishous': http://public.fotki.com/Delushious/how_tos/how-to-put-an-end-t/
I used two yarn strands instead of 1 and removed the thread in the yarn pieces so that they would blend better. I like my method better than using a single strand because it helps me braid all the way past my real hair so that the ends are less likely to protrude. It also keeps me from creating braids that are way too small.
