I don't even know. I measure my hair exactly one week ago and it was 9 inches. This week6 with like stands at 7. Idk how this happened. A fist full of hair came out. They are suggesting that I cut 3 inches butter um my hair is only 6 inches. No way I'm rocking 3 inches.
I think the breakage resulted from clarifying my hair then using bentonite clay. I did a protein treatment then a deep conditioner. Maybe the protein treatment went bad.

Also, I used to think that Suave didn't work for me but I've found that ONLY the Suave Tropical Coconut condish works for me and I use it to cowash, as a leave-in and in my moisturizing spray mix.  V05 Moisture Milks don't work for my hair hair but I like the Tea Therapy.
 
Glycerine is not welcomed in my hair.  I've tried the Scurl and homemade glycerine mixes and neither gave me good results.
 
I think that since you like twists, you should try to work with them.
Moisturize and seal daily or even twice a day.
Full head baggy at night (if you need extra moisture)
Consistently DC with a moisturizing DC
Add in a light protein to help with strength and retention
Keep those ends sealed and tucked away -- find cute styles to pin your hair into or cover with satin and rock a tam/beret, wig or headwrap.
 
If it gets really cold where you live, I would suggest covering your hair during the colder months.
Sounds good to me

i have only been on week 1 of this method and it is working out well so far.  granted, i am in mini twists so that fact may be affecting things. i have no idea how this method would work on my loose, very kinky hair.  we will see, but so far so good.  i have been using renpure and v05 (surprisingly) as the conditioner to leave in.  today, i try purabodynaturals dc as the conditioner to leave in.

I have to give you an answer when I take down my twists on the 10th or the 17th.  I just did the Tightly Curly method, so it feels better. Before it did feel bitter.  It would just snap constantly.
