Hi guys I have a question about traditional twist. I just want to know if I am doing the protective style right. I have had my hair in medium twist for a little over a month. I wash it every week with the twist in deep condition it and every other week I protein condition it. My twist do come undone during the washing process. so I retwist my hair. I donít comb it I finger comb the twist before I retwist it. I have not had a problem with locking at all. I just wanted to know if this is still considered a protective hair style. My hair does so much better with moisture when I deep condition every week.
I would say so, since a protective style is not manipulating your hair for a period of time, but also taking care of it for health reasons. Just make sure you give your hair a break from the twists. I read an article (unfortunately I can't find it), but it stated that leaving twists, or other protective styles like that, for more than 6 weeks can cause strain to the hair follicles since they are pulled more than naturally. Don't quote me on the actual weeks.
I am considering doing a twist out for myself too.
I found this article. It isn't the one that I was referring about in the above comment, but this one aims at myths and non-myths of protective styles.
