I started teaching myself by trying it at night after a bath with slightly damp hair. It didn't matter what it came out like as no-one would see it anyway. I found the hair being slightly damp helps as it isn't so fly away. I have since found that a light spray of volumising dry hair shampoo works in the same manner. Your arms will ache at first!
No a fishtail plait is started with parting the length I need two. Then taking a small section from the outer side of one part crossing it over to the outer side of the other part and continue. Quite time consuming though!
