I put in some Yarn Braids they look like Locks or Dreads. (in the south those two words are interchangable). Anywho, the process took me a day in a half. I started on Monday at 3pm and was done by late Tuesday at 11pm. But I had a short cut by braiding half way down then later going back to complete the braid.
So far I like them. They are not irritating like synthetic hair nor are they tight or heavy. You must tie a knot at the ends of your hair and burn because they do unravel easily. And use caution when burning the Acrylic, because it does get hot!!
The Yarn I purchased at Joanne's Fabric for $7.99.
IF the store you choose does not carry a pound then pick up at least 3 small packages of yarn.
Braiding the hair this was ...
Long and Slow
I love it!
