I'm mostly interested in ways that you all are conditioning or cleansing your hair and scalps with braids, weaves or twists. I always thought to rinse or wash these, especially braids and twists, would cause the hair to 'poof' again and come undone. I just don't want to pay for and take the time to get braids and then destroy them trying to keep everything clean. The diluted conditioner idea sounds good. Thanks
