Nope, the seven stranded braid did not hold up well after sleeping on it.
I guess the amount of surface to hair volume, plus a restless night of sleep (Hot and humid) just really destroyed it. Or maybe it was the leave in-conditioner? Some of them provide noticeably less hold than other.
Also, and this is my laziness speaking: I really don't think you can tell the difference between a five stranded and a seven stranded braid? So the extra time it takes to braid the seven stranded braid seems like a bad time investment.
