Protective Style Series Vol 2.4 | Hair Styles For Senegalese Twists

Hair Styles For Senegalese Twists


This is definitely the fun part of Senegalese twists....you get to style them! It is pretty fun to style your box braids, twists, locs, etc. but it is very important to remember these tips for healthy hair care:



Don't pull too tight when styling

It is so easy to get into the mood of styling your braids and for every 'braid' to be in the place you want it to be in. But remember to not style your buns, updos, and ponytails too tight. That can wreak havoc on your edges and you surely don't want that. Just make sure your hair is snug to keep the style in place.

Be mindful of the products you use

Use that moisturizer at least 3xs a week. Watch your use any kind of gels, foams, oils, and butters which could create unwanted product buildup over time. But when you constantly use them, this can create lots of product buildup and could be unnecessarily tough to get that product out without damaging some hair.

Use elastic head bands and not ponytail holders

Use elastic headbands to style your hair. This will keep your styles snug, not tight. You will also be able to do your hair in a healthy, stress-free way and not in a way that would cause your vein to show in your forehead. Not cute!

Play around with hair accessories

Who said all you can do is keep your hair down and only do ponytails?! Make sure you get a few fun scarves and flowers to pin to add FUN-NESS to your hair! Don't forget to stock up on cute hats and colorful clips.

And here are some braids/twists ideas!

I did take a few styles from other Senegalese twist sets I had in the past. Try a few of these styles out for yourself. Enjoy your long-term style!

Natural hair says: have fun with your long-term protective style. Don't just wear your hair in a down style or in a boring ponytail. Take the time to style your hair in a cute hair doo and you will surely get a few "oos" and "ahhhs!" Enjoy your long-term style
