    I'm APL length/somewhat past that stretched. I pretty much do them twice a month though. To be honest, I don't know why I don't do them more often. Like all my other styles, I do my WNGs over night. I use my conditioner, gel, then sealer. When I go to bed I put my hair in a couple of pigtails (2-4), then go to sleep. Once I wake up, it is dry.I can get them to last for 5-8 days. Every 2-3 days I respirtz with water in order to refresh. So, I actually consider my tecnhnique somewhat of a "wash n set"?

    Not retaining length is a sign you are having breakage. Our hair grows, Our hair breaks. You write you are using Hair Milk, that is a sealer, What is your moisturizer?

    Establishing a Regiment: I run every morning and sweat in my head

    Because of my length, WnGs are more of a "luxury" style for me. Not something I can do daily and in certain types of weather. I may rock one once every few weeks, but the knots, tangles, SSKs and rubbing on my clothing is just too much. I condition, use a leave-in, seal, etc, but its sill not a sustainable style for my hair if I want to gain serious length.

    I workout often, cowash and shampoo my scalp 2-3x a week.


    I workout often too! I run every morning and sweat in my head. I'm constantly learning about my hair and trying to figure out a regiment that works with my active lifestyle. For the past year, I've stuck to wearing corn rows, alternating b/t my own hair only and adding extensions. I wash about 1-2 times a month and let my hair breath for about 4 days or so before rebraiding. I've yet to establish a regiment that keeps my scalp from drying, itching and flaking. Do you have any suggestions?

    I have a serious love/hate relationship w/ my wash and gos. It all depends on the products that you use as well. (I currently use kinky curly, shea moisture dc, and seal with a oil). I always start off with a wash and go and then end up in a pony tail or an updo of some sort. I typically only wash out 70% of the conditioner and I get best results when I use my denman brush (after I detangle w/ a wide tooth comb of course)

    I'll be 2 years natural next month n' had some breakage on my edges from wearing hair bands to tight. Maybe doing more WNG's will help me grow back that length in those spots. Maybe it'll help my growth overall. I'm going to try it out.

    How does that work for you? And about what ratio of each?

    Pineappling is when you put your hair in a loose pony to protect your ends and stretch a style like a TO or BO for example. When you have longer hair this can be achieved with less ponytails but when it shorter you can have several all over your head, but it does help to stretch a style for longer than a few days. Since I've been pineappling my styles I can get my TO's and BO's to last a whole week now!!

    I agree, I love the definition I get now but the overall look is not as cute as it was when it was shorter. I've been natural 14 months.
