Leala took over 6 hours to microbraid all of Mia's hair. It looks great and Mia loves it. She has plastic clips in and enjoys shaking her head to make them make noise. I tried to do one braid but had no luck because my fingers are waaaay too big.
We decided to let Joey's hair grow longer because we had been told it had never been allowed to grow. When we brought him home, he had what appeared to be receding hairlines and a bald patch on the back of his head. Fine fine fine hair is growing in the bald patch as well as along the front edges of his hair that had appeared to be receded.
