My Faux-Hawk With Braiding Hair

I did my hair last night, took me all of 1/2 hr. Bought 2 packs of $2 braiding hair, one 1B and one 1. Kanekalon, but the grade is called Afrelle which is apparently softer. It really is soft. I washed and blow dried my hair and did two ponytails, top and bottom. I then separated my hair in two and did two two-strand twists. I put a Goody ouchless elastic in place of the rubber band that's already on the braiding hair. I then two-strand twisted each side of the elastic and attached it around my ponytail with the Goody, nice and tight then I pretty much spiraled the hair and pinned as I went along. A hand mirror is a necessity. I used bobby pins to fasten the braiding hair to my own and hair pins within the braiding hair to keep its shape. My sides, I used the Cream of Nature Argan Edge control then some Eco Styler and tied it down for the night. Woke up this morning and put some hairspray in it to control the fly aways. No sheen because I don't want it to look unnatural. 

I did a similar style back in August, but it wasn't a mohawk style, it was sort of an updo look and I used the Marley braiding hair which is more coarse. The back is just my own hair pulled up. I'm not sure if I have pics of it.
