@ alice_42 and dearheart15: By out styles I mean twistouts/braidouts. I cannot do wash and gos without my hair matting something terrible. I'll moisturize and seal and then braid/twist, then in the morning I'll take them out but its always crispy by the time I come home from school which would be around 3.

So the maximum my hair can stay moisturized is around 8 hours. I'll definately try deep conditioning more often. Maybe even every week. Hopefully this will get my moisture balance in check. Also the only reason why I henna once a month was that I thought henna acted like a protein treatment and since my hair is constantly breaking, I was thinking I needed the protein. I'll try every 2 months.
