It begins.

It's Saturday evening. I have deep conditioned Viva's hair and I am about to start the detangling process. From there I hope to section off her hair and do box braids.

I'm thinking I will get about half-done tonight and finish off tomorrow morning. Pray for us.

How long does it take you to box braid her hair? I've been thinking about it for LG - but just the thought exhausts me!

Nerd Girl: this was the first time I had done it. It took about half an hour to detangle and part her hair into four equal sections, then a half-hour for each section that first night. I finished the back half of her head and called it a night. I put the two top sections in two large braids and then pinned everything on top of her head with a satin bonnet on overnight.

The next day, it took a little longer per section (maybe because her hair was mostly dry by that point?), probably about 40 minutes per. Then I used a ceramic curling iron on the ends. I think it turned out nice for my first time. I will have to post pics!

So all in all: a little over three hours? I didn't put any extra hair in, I just used her own hair. Lord knows she has enough of it! LOL
