My Hair: Faux Bun

A woman's hair, is her crowning glory; A gift from God, to be kept pure and true

I totally believe that I have been given a lot of hair by God because He knew that I could take care of it.
It is a shame that it has taken me this long to realise this but now that I have, I intend to keep it that way.

After over 20 years of having relaxed hair, I decided in February 2012 to go natural. After 10 months, I must say that this has been an adventure.

After loosing my 4th braids (I have the 5th one on now), I decided to chop off all traces of relaxed hair and try out a faux bun.
This is how it turned out.

my no makeup face on. How do I look?
People always wonder how I manage my hair when it is not in a protective style, especially as I am still relatively new in the natural hair game; well, I 'stumbled' on this product and it has changed my life.
It makes my hair soft, manageable, easy to comb and also provides moisture to it.
The only down-side is that I am unable to do any weave or twist-out styles as the hair becomes too soft to curl back on itself.

My natural hair sisters, what do you use to keep your hair soft and manageable but still healthy looking? 
I would also love some tips and tricks on how to do twist-outs as my arms always hurt every time I try.
