Senegalese twists for Kinky Hair??

  • 2 Post By liyahjay

Summertime is coming up and this is the time of year that I normally get my hair twisted up. I use kanekalon hair and I get Senegalese twists. Last year, the majority of my hair was relaxed, but now my hair is 100% natural. I have found out that my hair type is either 4b or 4c, and I'm scared that my hair won't turn out like it did before. Desperately need some advice!!!
I've never had Senegalese twists but a friend of mine did. Shes a type 4 and her hair looked fine.
I just took Senegalese Twists out of my hair after six weeks. My hair was fine and I could have worn in for like a week longer.
I ended up getting the marley twists. It took 3 1/2 more packs of hair than the Senegalese twists but it also took 6 hours less. And I added little silver clasps and they look so pretty



SimplyT and Nee93 like this.

Hair type: 4b/4c
Last perm: February 2011
Big Chop: October 2011
Reason for Transition: 1. perm chemicals are my hair's arch nemesis 2. desire to restore health and growth
Those are really cute! Thanks for sharing.
last relaxer 08/08/09
all natural since 7/30/10


Shrinkage happens.

My advice is the bigger you get them the more your hair will start proofing out at the top. I've never done micros, buttry to stay in the individual's to medium range.

Hello I am new to the forum. Did you have the senegalese twist. I have 4c hair and the braider told me my hair will become frizzy if I do senegalese twist with my hair type
