You will be fine with braids. Nothing will happen to them. Although I wouldn't go in a sauna with wet n' wavy human hair. If you want to sauna with that, you should wrap your hair in a towel first, or better yet, braid the ends of your hair. Afterwards when you take out the braids, your waves will look better. Now if you have a curly weave...I wouldn't recommend that you use the sauna at all. You will come out looking like you were abducted by aliens.

I have a three person sauna in the basement of my house. I use it two times a week. I use it mainly so I can get some time alone, although the dog is always waiting outside of it and won't move. I brush my skin before I get in and I love the way my skin feels after I shower from using it. It helps me to get a good night's sleep. I also drinks a ton of water everyday :). I think the water has improved my skin not so much as the sauna.
Also, I haven't figure out if there is any added benefits to losing weight by using the sauna. After I get out of it after 30 minutes of use I might be a pound lighter, but soon as I drink water I get the pound back.
My brother seems to think if you use it everyday with one of them sauna suits on that you will lose weight. I'm not willing to test his theory for fear that I might get overheated and someone will come in my house and find my secret drawer (okay TMI).
PS. When my hair is braided it don't slip out, just be super wet..
