First, you simply center one of the long sides on your head, and toss the rest back. You may have lots of extra left, but don't worry about it. This will be what actually holds the hair in.
Then you gather your hair inside the long ends of the scarf, and twist the scarf around it. Do not twist your hair. This would cause the same kind of tension as if you were pulling it into a tight bun or ponytail. Use the scarf to wrap your hair.
Then feel to find where your hair ends, and start twisting tightly after that. Twist almost to the very ends of the scarf.
Bring this twisted end under and up to the back of your head.
Wrap this around to form a sort of enclosed ponytail. Remember not to do this too tightly.
Then tuck the ends into the underside or if you have a long end left, wrap it twice and tuck or pin it.
