Maintaining length with a protectivestyle

I have twist in my hair right now. I oil and condition my hair every couple days, but at the end of the 3 or so weeks I leave the twist in, it seems my hair sheds a lot more than when I put the twist in. Help!? Why does it shed do much? Could the fake hair be causing this, or my excessive conditioning and oiling ??
1) If I remember correctly we shed on average of 50-100 hairs a day. If you were your hair in twists for a few weeks then all those shed hairs seem to come out at once and it appears to be a lot of hair loss.

2) Not having a proper take-down method can cause breakage and that could be what your seeing when you take your twists out.

3) Your hair does not "like" the excessive manipulation of installing and uninstalling twists so that is causing shedding and breakage.

4) The fake hair is probably sapping the moisture from your real tresses.

I hear braids last longer than twists but I assume the mechanical damage will be about the same if they are not installed, taken down, and cared for properly.
Using fake hair was worse for me caz now im trying my hair by it self & have better results.

I do twists not braids with my natural hair. I dont have the time to do braids esp so small but maybe when my hair gets longer.
