Product Review: Senegalese Twists Using Janet Collection Noir Tantalizing Twist Braid

Janet Collection Noir Tantalizing Twist Braid
This has definitely been an awesome journey with the Senegalese Twists Using Janet Collection Noir Tantalizing Twist Braid. I honestly had the best time with this hair with hardly any issues and lots of #selfies. Here are my weekly pictures:

Week 1: I mostly wore my hair loose with a Ninja Bun the first week. I twisted my hair pretty snug and didn't need the extra stress of styling. This was an easy style to really care for.

Week 2: I started trying out different styles with my twists. I did tuck and rolls, flat braids, and more buns to have a bit more creativity in my styles. When I had my tuck and roll style with my hair to the side, my husband called me a "hip-hop star." Now time to drop my album!
I also decided to dress up as Tin (Wo) Man for Halloween! I did a Ninja Bun on top and made sure to have one strand out as my "spout." I also added jewels (loc jewelry) to my hair to create more of a tin-can-nature to my style. Oh! And this took about 59.5 bobby pins, lot of hair ties, and prayer to keep the style up LOL

Week 3: I do more French braid styles for something different, instead of Avant Garde ones. French braids are actually nice and help keep my hands from messing with my new growth. I also massage my scalp with my coffee oil, because my scalp is starting to get that itch. That tends to help a bit. The twists are still looking very nice!

Week 4: New growth is definitely coming in and I have already scheduled to take out my hair sometime in the next week. This style was so easy to care for and not a big hassle for me at all! 

Pros of Janet Collection Noir Tantalizing Twist Braid

Very simple to install

There is no separating, brushing, curling, nor hassle. You literally do the crochet braiding process and that's it.

Very convenient for on-the-go
Just wake up and go!

Easy to care for and low maintenance 
I literally moisturize and massage my scalp with oil 3xs a week and sleep with a satin scarf.

Put hair away for long-term
This style stayed in for 4 weeks!

Easy to find the hair online or at local beauty supply 
This hair is literally everywhere (internet and local beauty supplies) and the price is not bad either. Depending on where you buy the hair, is can be $4.99 to $9.99 a pack. Pretty cheap!

Can reuse the hair for another style

Since these are twists, there is no need to cut the hair out of your braids. Just pull and release the twists, cleanse in ACV, then pack up for next use.

The ends do not unravel or get too frizzy
Although, you can still seal the ends in boiling water, it is not necessary to do so. The manufacturer did an excellent job creating the twists to not unravel. You may find tiny bits of lint at the ends, but it's not too bad nor irritating.

The hair has a natural look and feel
Unlike the Freetress Braid Senegalese Twists Small, the twist are thicker and have a natural feel to them. They also look natural as well, instead of shiny like Senegalese twists using kanekalon hair.

Cons of Janet Collection Noir Tantalizing Twist Braid

Very bulky
...but my, oh my! This hair can get bulky in a second if you don't space the twists out. Remember, with every twist you are crocheting, there are actually two twists coming out of that stitch. So be sure to space them out evenly
