that's a good question, i've been trying to work on wearing more protective styling.
I too love to change my hairstyle often. i know it's not the best thing for my hair to have my hands in it everyday. I wish i was one of those girls who wouldn't touch her hair so much, like my little sisters.
I can't keep braids or kinky twists for over a week. I don't like wearing weave because it makes my scalp itch. I wear afro puffs, a bun, or a scarf when i do choose to wear protective styling which is only on those days i am too lazy to do anything to it.
The last time i had braids i kept them 3 weeks, and my hair grew so much. So this summer i plan to alternate weeks...wear twist and curl one week, then protective styling the next. I'll see at the end of the summer if it works for me.
Everyday i am on the internet looking up stuff for my hair, and i've noticed the girls who rarely touch their hair, and wear the protective styles for weeks at a time, seem to be the girls with the hair to their waist.
Sorry if i may have gotten off subject in this post.
