Please help, asap.

Is it okay to leave single strand twists in your hair for a month? I don't want my hair to break, it's dealt with enough breakage. Please someone help. It's very frizzy but I'm okay with that. I just mean is it good? My hair will start to dread after a while, and I also scratch my scalp- so I see the few pulled hairs at the beginning of the twists in some spots.

Please help.

And HOW do I undo these? What is a good method? Do I put product in there as I loosen them? What to do after, condition?

Please, help.

Yes, it's okay.
I have done it before, but I did not make it to one month.
It looked too bad to go the full 4 weeks.
Just don't wash them if your hair will tangle badly--it's what my hair did when I tried washing in twists
Tangle City. Lol.LOL
And, that's not fun trying to detangle and separate.

And just undo these as you would do for a twist-out.
Product will help give a slippery feel so the hair will not catch together so easily, but oil might be best to use.

I typed  a detailed reply 3 times but received an error message & lost everythingShift+R improves the quality of this image. Shift+A improves the quality of all images on this page.

IA with Amber, the answers depend upon a few things:
  • moisture - example  how often, what you use, spritzing vs wetting twists
  • maintainence - ex- nighttime care, after exercise care , oiling scalp- etc
  • shampoo- will you or won't you & how often
  • techniques -ex- unravel from bottom to top, braiding roots, using extension hair, 

For lots of helpful hints- check out: http://forum.blackhairmedia.com/twist-challenge-ii-august-september-closed_topic317960_page1.html.   


The  protective style challenge in growth will have ladies sharing good tips too.
