    Default Protective Styling..

    I'm starting to get a little lazy with waking up having to spend time fluffing and pulling on my hair for it to only look a mess thanks to the humidity in my area. So I'm about to just twist my hair on up..

    How long to you ladies keep your styles in? I planned on just leaving it in for a week or two, doing a good wash and twisting back on up. I'm trying to retain length but not sure if that's long enough time..

    I leave mine in for about 3-5 days, its hard for me to keep them in for a week or more, because my hair loosens up the twists quickly and it gets fuzzy. plus I like wearing my hair out...so it gets tempting to take them down..after a day or so

    A week as the min. Two weeks tops.
    I'd like to be able to do a style that would last a little longer

    Yea see I heard of ppl keeping theirs in longer, I can if my hair is braided but I kind of fear for my hairline getting jacked up so that's not an option.. A week or two I can do if my hair doesn't unravel or if I get sweaty.. and that's hard..

    I've had them before with extensions but not on my hair, I have kind of thin hair and I hate that scalpy look. I was going to do some flat twists on the side and throw in some chunky two strands for the half mohawk look.. I like fuller hairstyles cause my head is humongous lol..

    Default braids

    Everyone is different. I leave my braids in for two weeks than take them down wash. My hair and braid them right back up...my hair gets fuzzy really quick also, so I like wearing wigs to cover up the do underneath....I like wearing my braida for a month also, I get a lot of new growth...love it....but now that I'm all natural my braids are lot fuzzier quicker..it also depends on the braids, cornrows-two weeks, microbraids-thirty dayz.

    I leave my twists in for 3 weeks or so. I no poo while twists are in. When my hair is fuzzy after I wash I roll my hair up in rollers to give it a curler look and it looks fine. I love it. Right now I'm a little lazy with my hair. I have it in Bantu knots until I twist it up again.
