hi, ladies!  in a high bun of small twists today. i am thinking of just keeping my hair in twists without undoing them all at the same time for a few months...like just redo each twist - make it smaller or bigger and keep rotating like that..and finger detangling until July...i would wash/dc/steam weekly, but then there would be no detangling session and i would instead just untwist and retwist.

thoughts?

@HR, 
sounds like a good idea to me.
I never washed in twists though because my hair tangles, but if your hair is fine then I say go for it!Thumbs Up

thanks, amber.  that's just it though.  normally, i have zero tangles...but with swimming...i have to put the shampoo on my twists themselves and that definitely increases tangles.  but i guess it wouldn't matter though b/c i have to wash my hair with these twists in - i work out a lot and i can't give up wearing my twists.....i also refuse to have to do my hair multiple times a week if i do bigger twists or do updos.

just wanted to see if anyone had bad experiences doing this...or had heard of any.  good to see you have not! :-)

UPDATE:
*lightly spritzed and set my twists in bantu knotz yesterday
*massaged my scalp today, which loosened the knotz a bit, but I don't mind

...my phone screen is broken and I don't have a digital camera, so Im not able to take as many pics as I'd like. I don't know if that's good or bad yet Ermm

I used to do my own twist extensions all the time in high school, and once when I first went natural. @savanna you're making me want to do them again, but it's just so time consuming Thumbs Down

Just started taking out some of my cornrows. I'll be doing a good wash and DC treatment. My hair is still very moist. And supple, so glad about that.

I've had my crochet braids fully installed for a week now. I blow dried the hair yesterday and clipped the ends a second time. This is a picture from last thursday.
 
 
 
Hope everyone is holding strong to their regimen. I've been having trouble keeping up because its been 5 and 3 degrees so I've skipped my morning spritz twice this week.

Hi Ladies,
 
i have been sick as well...not sure if the swimming is attributing to me getting sick...I make sure to cover my head really tightly before leaving the swimming pool but it is freezing where I live.....I have been dealing with the flu....
 
Still in cornrows under my wig and spritzing with my aloe, wtaer and oil mixture everyday... I have been washing weekly due to the swimming...do you think weekly washings is too frequent?
