I'm taking my braids down. Know any transition hairstyles?

I've been wearing braids for about 6 months so far and today marks the day were I take out my last set of braids. Braids are too expensive right now ( and I just simply can't wait any longer to wear my hair down and feel my lovely new growth again) so I'm looking for a new transition hairstyle.

Do any of you any good ideas? Preferably, do any of you know of any good tutorial videos on Youtube? I'm reeeeaaaalllllyyy inexperienced when it comes to hairstyles so I need to learn step by step.

    Thank you :)

    It took me like 3 hours to take my braids down :angry3:

    I co-washed it in sections using Suave Professionals Almond and Shea Butter (yes, I know it has -cones in it... I figured that out right after I bought it :( ) and deep conditioned with Eden's Bodyworks Jojoba Monoi DC. I twisted it up and I'm going to keep both the conditioner and DC on it overnight. When I wake up, I'll take it down, rinse it with cool water and apply some of my SM Curl Enhancing Smoothie and Cantu Shea Butter Leave-In Conditioner, and retwist it again until I figure out what to do with it.

    So far, the best quickest style seems to be NaturalCandii's new video titled "big a** bun", haha. Maybe I'll try that. This should be fun :)
