So I've seen this idea a lot and decided to give it a go
1st I started with straight hair
Then braided it into 6 little sections... If you have thicker hair i would make more sections
I decided to use bobby pins to hold the braid instead of rubber bands because they are easier to take out... i was being lazy ;]
Twist the braid. Make sure the straightener is ready to go
I held it in place for a few seconds then when continued down (that would be my new baby in the background :D )
This is what it should look like after you go over it with the straightener.
I wait for them to completely cool off before taking them out!
This is what I came out with...a mix between crimped and curly :]
