Questions about my TWA

Hi! Im currently rocking a TWA ( 3in) I was wondering if I needed to do much to it as far as styling goes. I know protective styling is the way to go, but then some say my hair is short enough to just leave it as is. Minimal manipulation, just moisturize and detangle. Should I be concerned about protective styling at this stage?

    Actually a twa is a protective style. It's already low maintenance so don't have to handle it as much. Protective styles are all about protecting the ends of your hair from manipulation and exposure. You don't have to really worry about ps until u hit shoulder length cuz that's when your ends begin to rub against your clothing.

    I would just stick to cleansing, moisturizing and low manipulation. PSing seems to be more useful once you retain more length.
