LOL. This thread answered a question I didn't even realize I had! I always thought that all the ladies on here with beautiful twist or braid outs just did it once a week or so on wash day and were 'lucky' to have hair that lasted or maybe didn't exercise regularly. I would try to tie up my hair and rock it the next day but it always looked like crap on day 2, especially if I went to the gym. I htought i could only do braid outs the day after a wash. Now I see that its normal to wet/dampen your head and rebraid every night. I don't know if I want to put in the time but it's good to know.
