Sounds funny right? A few summers ago I'd gone and let my friend braid my hair. She made hundreds of tiny tiny braids and I loved it. Unfortunately I left it in too long! They were beginning to "lock". I'll never forget how long it took three people to unbraid my waist length hair. They salvaged 90% but I had to have 3 inches removed due to breakage. It looked wonderful and they didn't charge me extra! I was totally pleased!
