How to make your twist outs/braid outs last 4 days+??

Hello, As a natural, I've always struggled with making my hairstyles last longer than 1 to 2 days! :( It's frustrating because I don't want to continuously retwist my hair to make it last longer!(it defeats the purpose of protective styling because I have to do my hair over and over again throughout the week!) So, what can I do??

About my hair:

Length: Short(about chin length when stretched)
Type: 4??(I've been told 4a?)
Products I use/have used:
1. Cantu Argon Oil Leave in conditioner
2. Kinky curly knot today leave in conditioner
3. Kinky curly curling custard
4. Shea Moisture Curl Souffle(only on my wash n go, didn't try for my twist out)
5. Shea Moisture Curl Enchancing Smoothie
6. Eco Styler Gel (argon and olive oil)

I've seen some people use wrapping foams instead of gel, should I try that instead??

Please tell me how to make my style last longer. Preferably for 3-4 days long. My style only lasts around 1-2 days, and then I have to retwist it, rebraid it.

EDIT: Also, my night time routine is to tie with a scarf because I can't pineapple my hair yet. When I do tie it though, it smashes my hair down?
