I wore this style for 5 full days and zero frizz at the end of the week and super moist hair especially on my ends. I equate this to have used the Curling Souffle on wet hair and pinning up the ends protecting them from rubbing on anything and outdoor temperatures. It almost looks as if my hair hasn't grown it stayed so neat. It grew plenty...
Too keep my hair looking neat, used the scarf below. I have several different types of satin scarves and I choose the one I'm going to use based on the hairstyle. I often use DuRags to maintain my mini twists as I wrap them just like wrapping flat ironed hair at night. A DuRag would have caused my bun in the back to smash so I used the one below, which kept my braids flat and frizz free without smashing my bun.
During the 5 days of wearing this style, I didn't need to add any additional product nor water to my hair. I took it down and wore the styles shown below. I could have worn it a few additional days but decided to follow my weekly regimen and start all over for the upcoming week.
Front loosely pinned back with bobby pins on both sides.

No matter how well the hair is tied down, choosing the right styling product is a huge factor in getting prolonged wear from your protective style. With the right product to keep your hair moist enough not to have to touch or manipulate it and a satin scarf, you can extend the wear of your style.
