I've always had naturally curly hair and a love for natural beauty. From time to time I'll post pictures of my own hair but, for the most part, I'll blog inspirational hairstyles of others. (Yes, that is me pictured in the sidebar)
Feel free to leave a message in my ask box and check out my FAQs!

PS, I can’t follow back on this blog because it’s a “vlog” attached to my personal one, but I am always open to follow new natural hair blogs on my regular tumblr: young-disposition.tumblr.com.

My saving grace when it comes to sleeping with these twists. I look crazy at night, but I sure look good the next day

Two-in-One Review/Tutorial: How I Prepared For My Senegalese Twists

I just got my Senegalese twists installed yesterday, and I am in love with them! This is my first time with extensions of any sort and braids that my mother hasn’t done for me, so I’m still not quite used to the tightness and weight off all this hair, but nonetheless I am enjoying these long strands.

Knowing that I planned to get Senegalese twists done this summer, I stocked up on a few new products to strengthen my hair and apply as much moisture as possible before I locked them in twists for the next month or so. I wanted a good protein treatment to strengthen my locks for the weighted of added hair, so I purchased H’Suan Wen Hua from Lush in Union Square to use as a pre-poo treatment the week before and two weeks before I got my hair twisted. You guys know that I LOVE Lush products because they are completely natural and full of lovely good stuff for your hair. I’ve never really been one for protein treatments since they leave my hair fairly stiff, but I did quite enjoy this one and it’s pretty lingering scent. My hair felt stronger after using it (I left it in for 40 minutes as opposed to the suggested 20) and even though it is quite pricey, I used a third of the pot during each use.

I followed up with my As I Am coconut co-wash (see my review here) and a typical conditioner to aid in detangling then continued with my normal drying and post-wash moisturizing routine.

I washed my hair the day before I got my twists installed and this time, instead of focusing on protein, my main intention was clarifying and moisturizing. I used my Ouidad Ultra Nourishing Oil shampoo (see my review here) and really focused on clearing my scalp. I followed up with a typical conditioner for slip and detangling, then used my As I Am Hydration Elation deep conditioner to add extra moisture to my hair. I left the deep conditioner on for 20 minutes.

Post-wash, I used a t-shirt to dry my hair until it was about 80% dry then moisturized my hair in layers using Shea Moisture’s Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk, Shea Moisture’s Shea Leave-In Conditioner, and Jojoba Oil. I twisted my hair in 6 sections and went off to dream land.

The next morning, aka the morning of my appointment, I blew out each twists section a bit to stretch out my hair for my twist installation (the stylist ended up blowing it out a bit more since my mini-blowout didn’t do much) then added more Curl & Style Milk to my hair shaft and ends. I then rubbed Jojoba Oil on my scalp for moisture, but I plan to use castor oil and tea tree oil to dab on my part lines every few days now. After my hair felt completely moisturized, but not so much to the point that it felt drenched, I put my hair in two french braids and went on my merry way to my 9 AM hair appointment.

Unfortunately my stylist was 20 minutes late and when she arrived she still had to pull three bags of hair so we didn’t end up starting until about 10 AM. My twists were long and none of the assistants were available so the styling ended taking much longer than usual and I stiffly emerged from my chair at 5PM badly needing a glutes and full lower body massage. All in all, the long styling, stiff neck, and slight headache were worth it because I look fly (if I do say so myself)!

In my next post (possibly a week or so from today), I’ll update you on how I upkeep my twists and wash them. Thanks for reading!
