How To: Easy Faux Front Bun

Hey Sistas! In this video, I show you how to achieve this really easy and cute faux front bun using the DIY Okra Gel I shared with you a few months ago. I did make some changes to the recipe and process, so please follow the directions in this video for the new and improved gel. Again, this is a vegan holding gel that can also be used to style natural hair in many different ways including Wash and Go’s and Roller Sets. It also does a great job at slicking down those edges! Be sure to store any remaining gel in the refrigerator. Enjoy!

Products Used:

  • 6 pieces of Okra
  • 1 tablespoon of Jojoba Oil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons of Marshmallow Root
  • Few drops of Peppermint Oil
  • 1 cup of Water
  • Cheesecloth
  • Small pot
  • Small bowl with a lid
  • Squeeze bottle
  • Bobby pins & Hair pins
  • Satin Scarf
  • 1 pack of Caribbean Afro Twist Braiding Hair
  • Ponytail holder

The Process:

Please watch the video for detailed instructions on how to make this vegan hair gel and achieve this style.
