Mastering Senegalese Twists: Everything You Need to Know

What are Senegalese Twists?

Senegalese twists are a popular hairstyle that involves the twisting of extensions into your natural hair. They are both beautiful and protective, making them perfect for hair of all types. When it comes to Senegalese twists, the right prep is crucial for the longest-lasting, most natural look. Senegalese twists require low maintenance and will keep your hair looking gorgeous for weeks.

Step-by-Step Prep for Lasting Senegalese Twists

1.Start with a clean scalp by using a clarifying shampoo. A clean scalp tends to lead to the longest-lasting results. This provides a fresh base for the Senegalese Twists to begin.
2.Condition your hair thoroughly to allow it to be healthy and hydrated before installing the twists. Don’t forget to focus on conditioning the ends of your hair and any dry areas you may have.
3.Applying a scalp treatment before twisting is beneficial in preventing any dry, itchy, or irritated skin that may otherwise occur after applying the twists.
4.From here, the sectioning begins. You will start by dividing up your hair into sections to allow for even and uniform twists.
5.You can moisturize your hair once more now that it is sectioned off.
6.Try a protective style like cornrows or flat twists before getting the Senegalese twists done to minimize any tension on your scalp.
7.Once prepped, it is time for a consultation. If you are in the Houston area, be sure to contact us at Feminine Attractions to get your Senegalese twists started and discuss your hair goals and preferences.

Senegalese Twist: At-Home Care

To keep your Senegalese twists looking healthy, be sure to keep these at-home tips and tricks in mind.

.Sleep in a silk or satin scarf or bonnet to protect your twists. To avoid the frizzy look that can happen when you wake up, try sleeping on silk or satin to prevent your hair from rubbing against the pillowcase, which causes dryness to occur.
.Don’t forget to continue to wash your hair. Washing your hair and deep conditioning it about once a week will keep your scalp clean, moisturized, and healthy.
.Fill a spray bottle with water, a leave-in conditioner, and Wonder Hair Growth Oil, and use this mixture to spray and seal your roots while wearing your Senegalese twists.

When styling, be sure not to tug at or pull your Senegalese twists too hard, which will also shorten their lifespan.

When to Remove Your Senegalese Twists

The timing of when to remove your twists is different for everyone, often involving your personal preference and your overall lifestyle. If you are ready for a change or a new hairstyle, you can remove the twists to try something different. If you are someone who is looking to keep them for as long as possible, try leaving them in anywhere from 6-8 weeks.

Keep in mind that it is crucial to utilize a professional stylist to minimize any damage to your natural hair. If you want to remove your Senegalese twists, reach out to Feminine Attractions, and we can begin the removal process and walk you through your future hair health. Typically, we recommend giving your hair some time to recover and reset before installing a new set of Senegalese twists, but of course, each situation is different.

If you desire to keep your twists in for as long as possible, be sure to watch for the following signs of wear and tear:

.When you begin to see new hair growing at the roots of your twists, this is a sign that it is time for a salon appointment.
.The unraveling and fraying of the Senegalese twists indicate that you need to replace your twists. When your Senegalese twists begin to fray at the ends, this can lead to the breakage of your natural hair.
.Frizz can begin towards the end of your Senegalese twist’s life. You can avoid frizz by utilizing a silk scarf at night, but eventually, it will develop, indicating it is time to change your twists.
.Over time, you will also see your Senegalese twists begin to lose shape, and the healthy shine they originally had may diminish, which is another sign it is time for a new style.

It is important to keep an eye on your Senegalese twists and receive expert guidance on the twists' removal process to allow your hair to stay strong and healthy post-installation.
