    Peace and Blessings Family,

    I have had my hair braided for about 2 or 3 months, and it's now time to take these braids out ... :eeek:

    The Sister that put them in, said she'd help me, but i was like ... ohhh no Sister, that's okay, i can do this ... but uhhhh raaaa ... HELPPPPPPP !!! :SuN024:

    Surely there's an easy way to do this?!

    I wonder if it's easier to take down, if i wet it ... or pray over it ... or sump'n ... :lol:

    Ohhhhhh God ... Thank You For Giving Me a Mind to Love My Own Natural Hair ... no matter how challenging it may be! :D

    Any advice Family?

    :heart:

    Make four sections, start with one, and take your time. :lol:
    I promise you this, if you start today, get braided again tommorrow, you won't have to worry about it for another three months.:wink:

    My two most dreaded times are sitting down getting it braided, and sitting to take it out. If you find a easier way besides cutting it all out, be sure to look out for a Sister.:qqb008:

    lol Sister Purple @ if i find an easier way ... :love: ... i will surely tell you!

    Oh no ... i'm not getting it braided again for a while ... i really miss feeling a comb on my scalp ... i was tired of these braids after the first couple of weeks, but so much time was invested doing them ... and it really is NO MAINTENANCE hair do ... so easy, cool, and it's been so hot down here ... i've loved that part ... but no ... i won't be getting it braided again any time soon ... and i got a feeling it's going to take me more than a day, to take these down! :cry:

    Love You Sister Purple! :kiss:

    :heart:

    Awww, my Sister!

    More than a day? Yeah, I guess so. It has to be a practiced art. I've haven't had mines braided like that in a long while now. Right now, I just got the big five conrows going back. Not very stylish for a women, but if tooken out and teased a little...can be quite beautiful. But Sister, I do know what you mean, and i feel for ya right now!:luvv:

    :heart:

    If its wet it can make it easier..best bet is to just section your hair off with a scrunchie and take it on bit by bit..since you think it going to take more then a day you might want to do the top half or the bottom half just in case you have to go somewhere..if you get a kink in it hold your hair from the roots to ease the pulling..maybe you should get some trusted assistance..lol..and be sure to not get braids until your head is ready..GOOD LUCK AND HAVE FUN :D
