I began my braidloc journey January 15-16, 2009. It took me about 11 hrs to install little tiny braids on my head. Honestly, I thought it was going to take longer. I parted them in sections w/rubberbands & ponytail holders. Then, I just worked each section at my own pace. I am quite pleased with the results. There are a few, especially around the crown of my head, that are very, very tiny. I did this because my hair is fairly short & it's easier to do tiny braids as opposed to medium-large sized ones. I will join those later. But for now, the journey has begun!!
