I’m currently wearing a protective style- twists with extensions. This is my first time, and as the time draws closer for me to remove them, I find myself wondering if there is a method I should follow to minimize damage to my hair. I realize that there will be a lot of strands falling due to it being up for so long. But I want to avoid breakage if possible. Also I’m not sure on what I should do first after taking them down… do I deep condition, and then cleanse? Or should I just go about my regular routine with an added deep treatment? Any suggestions?

Have you ever worn weaves, wigs, or extensions as a protective style?

For those of you that do, what tips and suggestions on maintenance, styling, and care, do you have for the curious?
