I had to do them again! I haven't had my Marley twist since June of last year, it was time!! I used 6 packs of hair to get them nice and thick. Two of my packs were actually color. I'm not sure how long I'll be keeping them in, but they are defiantly coming in handy as my protective style and i can do so much with them! It feels nice to give my hair a break and still keep it in a natural style choice.
