Dear CN community,

I have a 3-4 inch twa, and I’ve found my night time routine for my hair to be very tedious. Unless i rock funky two strand twists under a beanie for a week, I’m two strand twisting my hair EVERY night and, subsequently, have to take those twists out in the morning to fluff. This feels like it is too much manipulation for my hair. It’s almost like I can feel my ends shredding between my finger tips (since i have to grip my short hair relatively tight to twist–this is also because alot of my hair won’t stay twisted). I make sure my hair is moisturized and sealed. I also make sure that my hands are lubricated with oil before handling my hair.

I just want to know if there is an alternative to putting 15+ twists in my hair every night, which is very time consuming for me. I can’t just leave my hair loose under a bonnet because, no matter how much I moisturize and seal, it will become really tangled. Maybe I’m worrying over nothing, but I need some input.

Help her out!
