To retain length I...
Detangle gently (always) with my hair moist & conditioner in it.
Detangle once a week to rid of shed hair & minimize tangles.
Moisturize & seal daily.
DC every week.
Trim when necessary.
Minimal heat. (So far I've used it 3 times in 2012, compared to years before when I used heat daily)
Overnight DC/pre-poo once a week.
Undo my twists with a little hair oil on my fingers. (Usually EVOO or coconut oil)
So far this is all working for me. My main style is twistouts and then I braid my hair at night & twist the ends. My hair is getting longer (currently SL) so I want to try protective styles that will keep my hair off my shoulders & minimize tangles. I love wearing my hair out but I think it's tangling more than if it would if I didn't wear it like that every day. Doing more PS's will be a newly added method I use to help retain length.
We have the same regi I love it! Simple and easy yup yup
