Get some scarves and bonnets you can count on.

If you want your braids to go the distance, you have to cover your hair at night with scarves or bonnets that won’t be sitting next to you when you wake up in the morning. So if your bonnet has lost some elasticity, or your scarf tends to slip off, hit the beauty supply ASAP. I’m a personal fan of durags. It is important to note though, that certain styles that incorporate loose hair can get tangled up and get/look matted if left to roll around in huge bonnets.
