I upped my moisture, trim monthly and use hard protein. I baggy my twist at least three nights a week for moisture.
Recently bantu knotted my twist, and really liked the results so I am doing that.
A week before I take my twist out I add oils and baggy often, my shed hairs mostly fall out when I soak my hair in water. A few tangles but I am ok with it. Oh and I search and destroy my ends in twist often.
Hope you find what works for you soon.
