    Default How to use hair fork

    I am very new here and I love to read all of your comments and the like. I now use hair sticks most of the time because I have a little problem with using hair forks. Can anyone please show me how to use hair forks on slippery waist-length coarse hair like me? Thanks so much, ladies.

    I am not sure how a fork (in putting it on) differs from a stick? I use mine the same way...

    Stick it down as if to pierce your head, turn grabbing scalp hair and weave it out the other side of the bun/updo.

    Just twist up a section or make your bun and stick it in. It's really pretty easy after a few tries to figure it out. Special Kitty sent me a few forks (THANKS, I LOVE THEM). I had never used them before but it was easier than I thought.

    This will also work for your length I think

    In other buns I use a fork the same way as a stick, weave, or go in outward, flip it (and catch scalphair with that) and push inward. (same as using amish pins)

    I put my hair up in a similar way like this with a stick and it works wonder for me. I want to learn braiding but it's tooooo hard for me. I will try again as eresh braid is so beautiful.
