Excellent Technique: Crochet Braid Video

This is the Youtube video of which my attempt would not have been possible without.
It's the technique she used that made my attempt so much easier....It still took me forever because I did it in stages, starting with braiding the hair on day 1.

4 Days & Countless Hours later....Crochet Braids Done

I managed to crochet braid my hair. It was a daunting task to say the least. But I'm reaping the rewards. It came out really nice. Virtually undetectable except to the trained eye of black women. They may not know what I did but they know it ain't my hair its just a matter of narrowing it it a wig? a weave? a wiga-weave? So long as I keep 'em guessing then its a job well done.

I will post the youtube video of which my attempt would not have been possible without. Thank the Lord I stumbled upon it before I started or else I'd have given up at the first try. This is a picture of the hair I used. I didn't use the hair the already manufactured way, I split it into two and used half with each insertion.
