I got kinky twists about 2 1/2 weeks ago and I already have a good amount of new growth. I was just wondering how long do people usually keep these in before taking them down?

Ive never had kinky twists, only braids, but with any type of extension, I think 6-8 weeks is the maximum.

I do my own hair too.....I think we're spoiled lol I get bored after the 4th week but dare myself to wait 6. Honestly you can have them in for about 2 1/2 months b/c the hair is lighter and won't drag your actual hair out like regular braids w/ kanekalon do. I've never had kinky twists but Im planning to in the new year. I just touched up my mom who has had them in for 2 months already and now could go about another month easily.

I will say though, that I wouldn't recommend leaving braids in for this long b/c the weight pulls your hair out. Hope it helped.
