    I could not, for the life of me, get this to work in my hair. I have mid back length hair, but I can’t seem to get steps 2 & 3 to work. I can’t get the tail end to not go through the knot. Maybe my hair is too slick?? Maybe not long enough? All I know is that I really want this to work and it isn’t! Can somebody point me to a video of this so I can watch somebody do it?
