    Posted: Dec 04 2013 at 11:26pm
So my hair has been breaking like crazy lately mainly due to the fact that I haven't been taking good care of it.  I've been busy with school so I would wash and deep condition my hair every two weeks. I moisturized and sealed everyday but it wasn't cutting it, my hair still kept breaking and it's prone to getting dry. i recently tried a new stylist and she suggests that i do a deep condition and/ or a protein treatment every week and that I stay away from bunning and doing a ponytail all the time (my breakage was in the crown so she believes that the ponytails/buns were causing breakage) the things is I dont know what to do with my hair outside of ponytails/buns esp. while at school. The stylist suggests that I do wet wraps but I'm going on vacation soon and I want to get senegalese twists put in, I'll keep them for maybe about 2 weeks or so, but with my hair being so weak right now would it be a good idea to get them? And what are some suggestions for other low manipulation styles I can try?
s/n im about 8-10 wks post, i cant remember off the top of my head

I've been natural for 4 years now but when I transitioned, I wore a lot of roller sets and kinky twist extentions.  Your hair should be ok if you plan on removing your twists after a few weeks.

thank you! =) I think I may just do the twists after an intense deep conditioning and perhaps a mild protein treatment.  Roller sets would probably also be good if I knew how to do them myself lol and my hair is just super thin right now so wearing it down doesn't look good but I'll have to try and make it work somehow

You should be ok if your hair is mosturized and sealed before you get the twists. And make sure your scalp doesn't get overly dry while the twists are in. But you should be fine.

I would say if you have relaxed ends. A year is a good point. At 7 months you only have about 3-4 inches of growth. The straight ends make it hard for the natural hair to do it's thing in my opinion

6. Don't use hot water on your hair try to use cool or lukewarm water even warm water is better than hot. A cold rinse is said to be beneficial for your hair smoothing down the cuticles and making your hair easier to comb. You need only rinse long enough for your entire head of hair to be penetrated with the water to get the effect. Experiment and see if the cold rinse helps or not.
