  1. How long are you supposed to keep protective styles of this nature in? I am on a journey to get my natural hair back to healthy and I’ve just started making some big changes a few days ago. I’ve read a lot of articles on this site so far.. anyway back to the question – I did put my hair in some sort of style like this last night so do I leave it up for a week until it’s time to wash/condition my hair again?

    • I style my stretched hair daily into a high bun. Leaving it up too long could cause breakage. At night I tie it up very loosely with a satin scarf. In the morning the steam from the shower adds moisture. I then apply a leave in conditioner and coconut oil. Being sure to really focus on my ends. It all gets pulled into a high bun. I’m sure not to pull it to tight as this could also damage edges.
