Despite the name, braided to the scalp styles aren’t actually attached to the head. This means you can continue braiding it just like a regular braid. After a few days, your protective style will probably look a little less smooth, and it may be time to wash it. A good tip is to apply Aloe Vera gel to the scalp before starting the braiding process. Repeat the process as many times as you like, in equal sections, until the entire length of that is covered.
To get a more permanent look, try using a braided to the scalp style. The braids can last for up to six weeks, but they are not completely secure to the head, and they can develop flyaways and other issues. You can make your braids last longer by regularly applying a leave-in conditioner and oil to the scalp. To avoid damage to that, braid that in sections, and alternate the types of styles to prevent tangles.
