How Offten &How Long Should I Wear a Protective Hair Sytle ?
Hi ! I have been natural for almost a year now & it is not working out so well for me. A year into it& I'm just finding a great product to use for my twist outs. The natural hair styles are very time consuming for me. Which I wouldn't mind if I didn't have to do it every night I hear that some people can do a twist out and wear that same twist out for 2 days for me it does not wrk like that I've tried regular twist out , flat braid twist out, braid out and they just don't last I've tried hot comb but if it rains or and hudmity of any kind I can forget it. So protective styles are my last resort. Can I wear a protective style (sew-in, braids, quick weaves) with in close time frame? EX: this past August for my birthday I had a sew in w/closure I wore that about 2-3weeks I usually wear sew-in for 2-3months but this was my 1st full sew in and I felt like I was gonna lose my edges it was extremely tight for the whole 1 & half of the 2nd week. I want godess braids but I'm afraid to get them I feel like I haven't waited long enough in between styles I'm really afraid of losing my edges because of getting these hair styles. How long should I wait to get another protective hair style after I took one down? Which protective hair styles are best? How long should I keep them up? I know this is a loooooonnnnnnggggg question thank so much for feedback!
