: : I've seen 2 kinds of braiding helpers over the years. The first is just a simple piece of divided plastic that is just like using the spaces between your fingers but may complicate things. The second is more helpful but I'm not sure if it would pull or break your hair as you put your hair in this handheld tool with batteries and push a button and it twists your hair into a braid. Link below.

: I would be very hesitant to use either of these.
: Look at this way: it takes you years to grow your hair long,
: with one of these contraptions it would only take seconds to
: get your hair tangled up in one. Personally i'd stick with the old fashioned doing it by hand thing.
I agree with you. I bought one of each type years ago but never used them partly because of your reasoning that it takes a longtime to get your hair long enough for a braid and partly because my hair never got past the top of my shoulders so a full braid wouldn't look so good. I went with a ponytail that got smaller and smaller over the years and was damaging my hair along with a hairdryer. Now I'm leaving my hair down and doesn't look so damaged.
Maybe a braid would be as damaging on my hair as a ponytail was? They look cool, though!
