D.I.M. (Did It Myself) Styling Series: Senegalese Twists

Hello, lovely people! I learned from experience that letting others do my hair is not always the best idea. Some people can work with my hair and it is great and some people touch my hair and disturb my balance and my hair goes crazy! I’ve gone back to caring for it myself for the most part! I have been crazy over this deep purple braiding hair for a while now! I have don’t braids with it but not twists so I decided to go for Senegalese twists this time. I wanted to do them really small but it didn’t have enough time so I did what I could!

It took me 3 sessions along a period of 2 days to complete. All together. It probably took my about 8 to 10 hours. My routine is usually the same. I do the front section 1st, then the very back 2nd and the middle last! It makes the twists wearable even if I haven’t finished them yet! I wore them out on my birthday and no one could tell I wasn’t finished yet! Ha ha!

My face is all puffy b/c it was almost 4am when I finished!

This style should last me 6 to 8 weeks but I plan on removing them in 4 to 6 weeks to give my hair a break since I’ve been wearing a lot of restrained styles this year. I shampoo the twists weekly and apply a light oil to my scalp and the length of the twists to protect my ends!

Thanks for stopping by!
