    $2.00 each, $1.00 for regular braids.

    Can anyone give me an estimate of how many braids my 11 DD would need? She has pretty thin long blond hair, just below her shoulders.

    Thanks,
    Sandy

    We just returned from the 1/24 eastern and DD12 had her hair braided on CC. Most of the girls that age were doing what is called a "crown" braiding. They braid the top front half of the head. My DD's hair is longer and they charge .50 more per braid for longer hair. ANyway, with the upcharge, she had 18 braids and it cost $45 plus tip. Her friend had hair just below the shoulder and her cost was $38 (19 braids) plus tip. Just a note, the girls said it really hurt to have it braided. My DD has a tough head (lots of dance competition hair !) but we did see some girls holding a towel to their eyes so others could not see their tears! I read somewhere to give them Tylenol before you go if you think pain might be an issue.

    And don't forgot to use sunscreen. For the most part, no pun intended.....the scalp don't see much sun and will burn easy!

    How easy do they come out??? Had an adult friend that did this once and her head itched constantly & some of her hair fell out when she took this out (she probably left them in for around 4 days.)

    My 8 year old had her hair braided on Castaway Cay and it cost about $50 with the tip. And yes, it hurt her pretty bad, and she was actually crying during some of it. :( It also took a while to take out and that hurt too as the braids are so small. Though she did have some tears it sure was fun to have and she left it in for a month!

    The women who did the braiding on CC suggested coating the braids in conditioner when you are ready to take them out. DD had it done last Friday and hers still look great! By the way, they do hairbraiding on the ship by the pool area on Deck 9 but the appointments fill up fast. If you prefer to have it done earlier in the week on the ship, they start taking appointments the first day you are on board. On the 1/24 eastern, they took apppointments on Saturday from 5:30 - 6:30 in Preludes, Deck 4. Check your Navigator! If you do it earlier, make sure you have the spray-on sunscreen for the scalp. I think it's called Baby Tender Scalp Spray but any spray-in sunscreen would do.
