How I learned to Senegalese Twist.

15 Apr

When I did my bog chop, I was living overseas in South Korea. I had NOOOO idea what I was going to do with my hair. Looking back, I wish I had more products and knew the info I now know bc I could have rocked my TWA (teeny weeny afro) and really did the dang thang. BUT, for me, resources were few in Busan Korea. Thankfully, I met a Nigerian woman who was braiding hair outside a military base in Daegu and for 7 months she kept my hair in Senegalse Twist.

When I returned to the U.S., I wanted to keep getting my twist but the prices over here were so high compared to what I’d gotten used to paying so I had to either learn to do it myself or “bite the bullet.” I chose to learn…I watched this video for about an hour and got down to business. The first time it took me two and a half days (on and off). The second time, just 6 hours.

      Thank you so much. Some people start with a braid just at the root, that may be a little easier.
