My only worry is that my hair might get matted up and start to loc - it usually does that when I leave my natural hair in a protective twist style.
For maintenance, I just use my spray bottle or put leave-in conditioner directly on my hair. I also like that it's very easy to oil my scalp when needed. At night, I just put it in a bun or pineapple and tie my hair down with a scarf.
Have you ever done loose twists? If not, would you like to try them some day?
