Hey ladies,

It has been a while since I've posted on here...any-who. I've been trying to do this protective style thing on and off for about 2 years now and I've noticed that every time I go back to wearing my hair "out" I have to trim off a significant amount of damaged hair. This doesn't happen to me when I wear it out. I follow all of the "rules". Keeping my hair moisturized etc. Has anyone else experienced this? Lots of natural hair gurus swear by protective styling for hair growth - could it be that it's not for everyone? Discuss!


Thanks!

I pretty much retained all my length with twist outs. I started protective styling a couple months ago....don't know if it's making a diff though.

Maybe its your method of protective styling that's causing the problem.  Consider an alternative for you. What may work for one may not work for another.

I've never thought of those as protective styles.. perhaps you should try putting your hair in an updo from a twist out.. Your hair is not protected if you're wearing it in a twist out or wash n go..

I don't think she is saying the twist-out is her protective style, but that she gets less breakage from a twist-out than when she protective style.

Im feeling the same way the protective style just kill my ends
but its my own fault cuz i over-moisturized my ends by using shea butter but now im using proteins and grapeseed-oil to seal with so thats helping alot.

I will agree with this.  It took me a while to figure out what works for me I've always use wigs for PS, my first year I braided my hair I noticed that winter my hair didn't grow that much but in the summer it would sprout ok so for the following year I decided to twist and leave under wig same thing happended the following year no growth in winter a little in the summer I probably did the twist for maybe 2 yrs.  Last year I changed it up again this time I decided to bantu knot my hair and wear under wig......BEST MOVE I MADE now I see progress even my one little patch in the front is finally growing and Im retaining length.....at first my wig used to look real highLOL but my wigs have adjusted themselves......when you think about it Bantu knots are lil mini buns.  just try different methods of Ps
