: Thanks Marty,
: I braided it myself(lots of practice)and generally rebraided every day so I could brush my top hair. My hair is very fine so I braided to keep it from turning into one big knot.
: I did cut my hair back to about mid-back(between the lower shoulder blades) about 6 months ago so I don't feel the need to braid anymore, just a simple ponytail. My neices wedding is coming up next month so I'll braid for that occasion.
: : You have a very nice braid there! Do you keep it braided for a week or so and how long does it take you each time or does somebody else do it for you?
: : Marty
: : : Hi Marty, I can imagine all that would get in the way.with practice,bare fingers work just fine.

: : : : 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.
: : : : Has anybody tried either of these with more success than just using the space between your fingers?

You look like a teacher! That's a good thing.
Taking out the braid everyday seems like best way to get hair moisturized. I've seen braid moisturizers but that's getting your hair wet and letting it dry in the braid and for me that's probably when my hair snapped in a ponytail (my hair was damaged, though but those damaged hairs will be on my head for years even though they get moisturized now).
