Default Big Patra-like braids on natural hair

Hey ladies,
Has anyone done big braids with extensions on natural hair? I'm considering doing big braids or senegalese twists on my hair. I miss the length of my hair too much but don't want to straighten my hair, I'm gonna really give the natural hair thing a real go-maybe even 5 years of hair, just to see how long I can grow it.

Any clues on how to do this? How much hair do you use? What type of hair? I'm really wanting something like those long braids Solange had but maybe bigger. Any online tutorials or youtube suggestions? If you've had big braids or long senegalese twists in how do they feel? How long did you leave them in? Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks

I'm assuming you're talkin about "Poetic Justice" braids that are comin back in style. My cousin just got those done, they look wonderful. She said she used Kanekalon (sp?) hair. I want to get Senegalese twists, and I know Kanekalon is used too.

Poetic Justice braids look like this:



ETA: Sorry for the size.

@Sonye93 Woo, that's what I'm talkin about! Beautiful pix! Do you know how long this style takes to do? I'm even loving the headwrap!

I just got twists done (pic to come soon) I think it depends on your hair density and the braider/twister. I love the style. I bought Bobbi Boss Jumbo Braid Kanekalon hair. I blow dried my hair priort to getting them done (for managability). I used 6 packs but i have dense hair. It took the girl who did my hair 11 hours for me but 6 for my neice who is 14.

@nomadpixi, I can't quite recall how long my cousin said it took, I don't remember if it was 6 or 8 hours. She has a relaxer in her hair that's bone straight, so it's not as dense as it would be it were natural.
