Okay, okay. I confess. I do not know how to care for my hair while it's in protective styles, namely kinky twists. Usually I just leave it alone - no washing, no nothing. But there's got to be a more effective way right? Sure, I've heard about wetting the hair, washing hair..not so much about deep conditioning. It just seems like unnecessary work. BUT all of my semi-long-term protective styles have been in the summer or fall...not really the winter. I want to do more than just hope my hair doesn't dry out over these next couple weeks - I want to be PROACTIVE. But *ahhh* where to start??
