Well, I took down the finger coils on the sides....it was still wet so they came out with a single pass of the brush...then I braided my hair into a wondering path. A wandering path starts "anywhere", continues until you run out of "real estate" then you switch directions...even if it means that direction is over or under other braids....which is part of the fun of them. Then you tuck the ending braid into another one hiding the start and finish. It NEVER comes out the same way twice...ever. anytime I do a wandering path, I always make sure to take pics....so enjoy.
