Is twisting/braiding the hair nightly counter-productive for length retention?

ELLE SAYS:

Based on my experience, I agree that braiding or twisting hair nightly is too much manipulation and can hinder length retention, regardless of hair type. When I twist or braid my hair, I notice more hair shedding, and my hair may break if I’m not gentle enough, especially when dealing with wet hair. Remember, hair is more fragile when it’s wet. There are other ways to keep your hair from matting or tangling at night, including pineappling, bunning, or even keeping your hair in place with a hood or soc. Also, sleeping on a satin pillowcase reduces friction since it’s a smoother surface, which helps minimize matting.
