5 Weeks Little to No Breakage Styling:
WEEKS 1 through 3 1/2: TWO STRAND TWISTS
WEEKS 3 1/2 through 4 1/2: TWIST OUT
WEEKS 4 1/2 through 5: SPRAY N GO
Not one of these hair textures called for styling that required combing, brushing, teasing, heat, or any other form of manipulation. I did some light styling that used a few bobby pins, maybe a scrunchy, also a banana clip, but basically my ends were secured and always moisturized.
Speaking of moisturized, I had to moisturize way less when I had the two strand twists in, than I did when I had the twist out. The spray and go required a spritz daily to awaken the coils.
THE BENEFITS OF NOT WETTING MY TWO STRAND TWISTS:
1) Minimized knotting and tangles (wet hair seems to maniacally twist up on itself)
2) Last much longer, less frizz, wear and tear
3) Much easier to take down
4) Less Breakage when taking down (due to less tangles)
5) Easier to take out the shed hair when taking down
6) Twist out is almost guaranteed to look better
7) No hair shrinkage
THE PROBLEMS I HAD WHILE NOT WETTING MY TWO STRAND TWISTS:
1) Itchy Scalp (That was fixed by rubbing tea tree oil all over scalp)
2) Dry Scalp (that remained a fact)
3) I personally missed water (we're pretty close friends)
My twists were done on dry hair, that was previously stretched. I used Jane Carter Nourish & Shine to twist. From time to time I would allow steam from my shower to give a little "mid week moisture". I rubbed Tea Tree Oil on my scalp every other day (or as needed). This got rid of itchy scalp, and it smelled good to (not everyone likes the smell of tea tree oil). A little goes a long way!
NIGHT TIME MAINTAIN: I didn't use a scarf, I just tied back my hair, and slept on a satin pillowcase.
