About 10 months ago I hit a string of bad luck.  I lost my job of 7 years and 2 weeks after that I was involved in a car crash.  A drunk driver hit me and crushed me.  I broke several ribs, my right leg and both arms were broken amoung other things.  I am thankful that I am able to walk however slow. The crash could have been worse.  What does this have to do with hair? Well about 2 weeks before all of this happened, I got box braids put in my hair and they are still in  10 months later.

Because of the crash and my fragile state I could not get my braids taken down.  I was in the hospital for amost 2 months and it has been a long long recovery for me. My hair was the last thing on my mind at that point. Well now due to the length of time that my braids have been in, I am experiencing severe matting, locking and build up.  I have tried taking down some of my braids but every time I try I get discouraged and give up after crying.  I really need some suggestions on products and methods i can use to save my hair.  Products that can help with the dirt and matting & locking, also ways to take them down.  I don't want to have to cut my hair but this is my last resort :(  I have watched so many youtube videos, but none of them truly address the issue that I am going through right now.

Can anyone help me please? Thank you...

H Hi Vizionary; So sorry to hear about you have been going through.

I don't know about de-matting Locs. Just removing tangles with lots of Conditioner and Oils.
I realize it must be very frustrating, but I have heard all the Pros say detangling requires a lot of patience,
Try doing small sections at a time even if it takes a day to do so.
Or you may run the risk of losing your hair.

All the best.   

I hope you find something that works

I'm very sorry about what happen to you and is happy that you're alive. The best thing for you to do is get professional help. Go to a hairdresser and have them removed the extensions for you also, It would be easier and less painful if you let someone's else do that job especially that you're still recovering from an accident. Gud luck xoxo
