I'm wearing mini twists now (almost a month). I think it has been a great way to get through this humid summer in NC. I wore it down primarily but have tried different updos for the last two weeks. The key to maintaining twists to me seems to depend on how you keep your hair moisturized and how you wrap it at night. I use my Juice and Berries oyin handmade spray right before wrapping my twists like a doobie with booby pins.
