I am in so much pain, I can't even frown because these braids are pulling on every muscle in my face! I can't believe the abuse I go through to look good and hide my hair for a few weeks! So I found some Cameroon woman and her sister to do my braids for my mom's wedding, and of course I brought my own comb and everything and it still didn't stop them from their madness! When they started trimming the loose hairs around the braids with scissors I stopped them--- and this hoe started up again too and I was like WTF!? She told me some lie that she was cutting the fake hair not mine, but how the eff was she supposed to tell the difference! then they had the nerve to try to run a lighter up and down my hair like that was better, so I had to stop her then, and she copped an attitude when I told her no to that. Then this heffer started getting rough with my hair! And when I complained at her to loosen up on parting my hair she told me it was thick, like I was supposed to apologize! Why is it that when these jealous hoes see a woman with thick hair that isn't balding from weaves or missing edges or some other problem they have the idea that its time to start tearing our hair out? Why do people have to be jealous? I didn't feel myself losing hair, but she was so freaking rough you never know, it could be at its breaking point. But my hair is strong, I did some protein and everything before I came so it would stand up to anything... so Im not worried about that. But this is the problem: Even though I told her to loosen up, my braids are TOO TIGHT. And by too tight, I mean My forehead is red and I can see each individual hair clinging to my scalp for dear life on my edges, and a few braids behind that. The back row is fine, but for some reason this woman decided to TEAR my edges up! I don't want to end up like the ladies who are trying to grow their edges back, Ive been proud of having all those naps now and don't want to lose them because of this. The reason I kept them in is because my mo is getting married tomorrow and I need them for that. She's freaking out as it is and I don't want to be the one who causes her to have a melt down because I was late to the wedding cause I had to take down my hair and start over. Bottom line, sorry this is so long.. Im just frustrated: Is there a way I can loosen my braids without actually unbraiding them?
