    Bismillah hir-Rahman nir-Rahim !

    (Fatwa: 1010/804/D=09/1436) It is mandatory to wash all the hair and take water to their roots while performing fardh ghusl. However, if the hair are entwined then one is exempted from washing the hair there is no need to untie the braid, it is fardh only to take water to the roots. There should be left no root dry. And in case it is not possible to take water to the roots without untying them then it shall be necessary to untie the braid and wash the hair. Now you should check whether the water reaches in the roots in case you do ghusl while your hair are tied or not.
