My braids make me look awful and make me feel bad. I prefer how I look with weave. My mum is very strict and won't let me get a weave installed until January. So I've got two months of living every second feeling like crap. How to convince her?

Oh and my mum is the only person who takes out my braids. I don't know how to. She pays for me getting a weave done also.

instead of taking your braids out,you can style them.....back in the days i use to make a few big braids and dip them in boiling water,and i got some wavy braids...i received a lot of compliments...you should try it

They are wavy. Don't worry about it. I realised it is all about the face and not the hair. I always focus on the hair but it doesn't solve anything. No one else answer please x

I think you are too young to be on BHM . Please talk to a adult regarding your self esteem .

I think I look funny in braids and I haven't had them in since high school which was 4 years ago lol
I'd say keep them in till December or something save up money to get your own weave done that way you mom might be swayed

If you want them out that badly, I honestly suggest to do some research on how to take them out. Youtube is a VAST place with TONS of videos of howto's and tutorials, so i'd start there if I were you.

Then after they're out, just deep condition your hair, blow dry and flat iron it. There's no way your mom is going to listen to strangers on the internet about how and what to do about her own daughters hair. 

You might as well use this an an opportunity and let this inspire and drive you to know how to care and style your own hair.
Good luck dear <3

^^ well in her previous posts she said she was 16. I don't know what to believe anymore. I don't know how to post links but just click on "find members' posts" and you'll see them all.
Reneex if you're 16, I'll tell you what I said in one of your posts. Talk to your mum. If she still insists on keeping the braids then find a way to make them work. And be thankful for what you do have. You have a hair dilemma at 16, a lot of other 16 year olds have issues you can't even imagine.
And if you're older but you're making these posts just to mess with people then you need prayers.

Try to style them differently and if you still don't like them be honest with her and tell her what you told us "...that you don't like them and they make you feel bad." I'm sure your mum wants you to feel good about yourself.

16 still seem to be too to be told how to style your hair...ynless she paid for it then she has some say. Go on yyoutube & get creative. Braids are not for everyone
