I do not have long hair, but I find myself needing to know the best way to braid/plait ultra-long hair (think Rapunzel) to minimise the appearance of length - fishtail? two french plaits? Also, related questions:
  • what kinds of braids would one wear in bed?
  • could one oil it with coconut oil or similar instead of washing it and do the bristle brush 100 strokes routine?
  • what is the most intricate braid one could reasonably - with dexterity and practice, say, if one had been doing plaits since a child - be able to do on one's own hair?

I'm thinking here of straight Northern European blonde hair - Nordic descent. Any grokettes with bum-skimming hair out there want to enlighten a curious (short-dark haired) sister? THANK YOU.
