So I self installed Senegalese twists about a week and a half ago, they were large or jumbo twists and I loved them! However I was having trouble keeping them in, they would weigh down on my head and slip from the ends, but it wasn’t something I couldn’t maintain with some work. Then I made the super smart decision to go to Water World. ( I am from Colorado and It is a large water park here). I french braided my twists and was ready to go! But those big twists just couldn’t handle that weight and by the end of the day my hair was a hot mess.
But I am determined to make this style work, so it was back to the drawing bored, Well the drawing bored of YouTube that is. I did some more research on how to make long lasting twists, and found that the smaller the twists the longer they seem to last, So I dove in, taking apart my twists and creating smaller ones, another 2 to 3 hours later and i have new smaller twists.
Hopefully these will put less pressure on the roots and will hold up better! I will let you know how the progress goes, no more water parks for me this summer!
Love your Do, and grow that Fro!
