Is it just me or do some braiders not know how to comb hair that has massive newgrowth? The last 2chicks that braided my hair was combing all wrong...which caused me in the past to cut my hair due to unevenness and ramdom breakage.
 
It sucks but now i feel i have to apply heat of some sort just to make my hair straight to get it braided without the breakage.
 
Is there anyone else with this issue? Give me all the solutions aside from smacking the chick lol

Thats why i dont go anymore----I couldnt think of anything either, I tried going with it alittle wet, and then they have to blowdry it all rough, they always use alittle bitty comb and start from the roots to the bottom.

 
And also why do they have to cut the braids when they get done ( the hair that is not in the braids that you can barely even see?) 
 
I guess straightening it would be a good option, so the comb would just glide through

You could comb your hair before you go. Or fake like your tenderheaded so that they let you comb through your own hair.
 
ETA: Instead of using heat to straighten your hair before go you could rollerset it or do a wet wrap

When they mess your hair up like that, it defeats the purpose of getting braids in the first place.Angry  I would also say straighten it somehow so they won't feel some need to do it themselves.

I do fake like I'm tenderheaded! lol...if you look in my fotki there were several times that i had to actually trim my hair due to someone else's neglect. Technically i would need a spanking for it too since i allowed them to do it.

I usually just blow dry it myself before going and then tie my head to keep it that way. I only blow dry it enough to straighten it somewhat and then tie it up to air dry the rest of the way.

This reminds me of the time that I went to a braid shop for micros. They seemed angry that my hair wasn't straight. They then proceeded to slap a TON of grease into my hair. It was so much that I could smell it. I was mad as hell. Lol.

Straightening the hair sounds like a good idea to me. I will try this the next time I get braids.

I usually straighten my hair before getting braids...because I can't deal with the new growth otherwise.
