thank you- it did give me an idea! i am going to try the micro braid as mentioned on your thread. is it just a plain hanging braid or one of those pretty braids kind of attached to the head like this-Google Image Result for http://blstb.msn.com/i/A8/3C828A61E4E1CA70D0F51B6874F9CE.jpg

i always wanted to learn how to do a braid like that- but i have no clue! lol
