I wore the twists for a day or two, under my silk scarves and hats, and decided to take them out yesterday (though I had nothing to do).
This was my first time doing a twist out on hair that had been pincurled, and I have to say i really love how much a lot of the ends held the curls from the pincurls, even after being twisted. My hair in the front is a lot looser than the rest of my hair, so its no surprise to me that the ends came out a little straighter in the front, so I think I will have to be changing up my pattern a little bit when doing twist outs on rollerset hair, so the texture in the front will also have the curly waves of the hair every where else.
Since I couldn't wear the set out because my ends were too straight in the front and just didn't look right, I decided to brush out the curls and experiment with some quick & easy, messy up-do's.
I've been trying to practice more with french braids going in different directions, and working on ways to tweak my goal, go-to style for my length now, the high messy bun.

(Three ponytail/buns turned into one big messy bun! Definitely will be doing a tutorial vid on this hairstyle soon!)
I usually wash my hair anywhere between once to twice a week, but I'm going to see if I can stretch it to two weeks wearing buns and protective style up-do's on my stretched hair, then it'll be right back to a roller set with eco styler gel. Keeping my hair as stretched as possible is really helping to keep tangles at bay which helps prevent breakage which I thoroughly need right now!!!
Protective styling seems to be going a little bit more my way... What has been working for you when it comes to protective styling?
