    When I had kinky twists in for about a month and a half while I transitioned I only washed them maybe 3 times. (I mean completely drenched and rinsed with a light shampoo.) They took so long to dry I didn't do it often.

    I kept them moisturized with sprays and oils. I would spread them over the scalp in between the twists and massage my head.

    At night I'd just tie a satin scarf over my head and leave it at that. The twists are going to feel pretty tight and sore for a while but once the roots start to grow in a little, they'll be more flexible, especially at the scalp.

    Thanks, i guess keeping it simple is the right thing to do

    their not tight though cuz i made sure to emphasize the fact that i was "tenderheaded" and that i didnt want them to pull at my scalp so my braids are pretty lose..i dont think they will last that long ive only had them in for 5 days and they feel like ive grown half an inch lol:confused1:

    i have a feeling they will only last about 5 or 6 weeks at the most.
