Senagalese Twist Hair Style # 1

I love to change my hair up and when I am having fun there is nothing better than to do my braids in an updo that is effortless and chic. Check out my favorite hairstyle the Sengalese twist bun.

This hairstyle only takes 5 minutes and requires two Goody Hairbands.

How To:
** Make sure that your hair is older than a week**

Bend your body over and drop your braids to the ground. Take (1) of the Goody Ouchless Hair Elastics and tie all of the braids into a ponytail at the center of your temple. Open the ponytail into a 360 degree of hair and start to wrap hair under in a twisting motion at the base of the ponytail. Once completely wrapped and a full twisted bun has appeared, take another Goody Ouchless Hair Elastic and seal the bun into place by wrapping the elastic to the base of the ponytail. Voila!! It should look like the above.

If you feel like your bun might not be able to sustain itself due to heaviness, you can add 2 bobby pins to the either side of the bun.


To Braid? or Not to Braid?

As a naturalista, I know how hard it is to wake up every morning and style your hair. I am a naturalista that loves to keep my hair pressed straight and on some occasions, I do not mind alleviating my hair of press stress. Many times, I start to grit my teeth when I hear the weather man say that the weather will be humid!!

My hair in its perfect natural state.

Freshly pressed hair to thinness.. right off the flat iron.


Humid Hair... Fun times... So much shrinkage

There is no discussion that when the weather tends to fall towards a  humid state, I would just go and get my hair braided. I know that many of us women work and prospectively may go on interviews, but having a braiding style that is career sustainable is very important as well. When I know that I want to reach out to a style that is considered career sustainable.... I get the senagalese twist box braids straight.

It is easy to manage and can be styled in many ways that can allow for a plethora of haute ready for work hairstyles...

So follow me day by day and I will show you how to maintain your newly braided phase, maintenance phase, and take-out phase hair.
