Ms Tanish1 does the same thing for her 4C hair and in the below video she moisturizes her twists from week to week and kept them in for five weeks, check it out below:
Some things to remember
Some women opt to stretch their hair using heat before installing the twists, know that you can decide to do that since you are probably not going to touch your hair again for a few weeks, but also realize that heat is not required for this to work.
We always encourage you to get your cleanse game on point when wearing long term protective styles and you do not plan to wash your hair for the time that you are doing the style. When you actually get to cleanse your scalp ensure that you focus on it and remove any build up that may have happened while wearing the style long term.
Always deep condition your hair to help with moisture retention so that while you are wearing the style long term you don’t have to dunk your head in a bucket of water every second to feel as if your twists are somewhat moisturized.
By all means do what works for you but make sure you are being smart about how your hair behaves and have patience with your strands, you will get to your goals soon enough if you are consistent.
I know this post is video heavy but we have just one more from Cipriana, as she talks about length retention for her 4C natural hair and we encourage you to listen very carefully:
Well that’s it, patience ya’ll!
