One concern I had when I decided to install Senegalese twists was how versatile the style would be. As you all know by now, I enjoy changing up my look and the idea of being restricted to one look for several weeks was not ideal, no matter how great a protective style it may be. However, after a couple of weeks, my hair loosened up a bit to allow me to move the twists freely and I have rocked a few different looks. Even with the large size of my Senegalese twists, they have quite a bit of versatility and these are only four looks you can create with this style (which would also look great on box braids as well).
First before I style my hair, every morning I moisturize my hair by spraying with Jane Carter Solution Moisture Mist. I start from the scalp and spray about halfway down the length of the twists (making sure to reach all my real hair). If my hair looks dull or frizzy, I follow with Jane Carter Seal & Shine and roll between my fingers. Check out the tutorial below as I show how to create each of these four styles with my Senegalese twists.
Of the four looks, I wear the half crown hairstyle the most. I have a few more looks coming, one of which I tried out for an upcoming wedding I’ll be attending. So if you are looking for inspiration for a dressier style for your Senegalese twists, stay tuned and I have one coming. I have received a few requests to demonstrate how I wash and condition my twists so I will record my process and share that with you soon also. If you have any other questions, please just let me know. Also I’m curious, which Senegalese twist style is your favorite?
