Curly Senegalese twists Style

Next, I used my fingers and wide-tooth comb to gently comb out my twist-out into a ‘fro.

To do the twists, I began parting my hair section by section, starting at the nape:

Once you finish and let go of the twist, it will naturally spring back and might feel a bit loose. Don’t worry! This is because the twist itself is thick – it willstay put!

Now, as I’ve said before – if I can do these twists, anyone can. I am definitely not the most coordinated person, and while it took my hands a few tries to match what my brain wanted it to do, I eventually got it – AND I did a better job than last time! It took me about 3 hours to do my entire head, so my routine will be to leave them in for 2-3 weeks, remove, deep condition, then retwist. It feels great to have a nice protective style that I can do at home while I watch a movie! Also, it’s very cost-effective, as I was able to use the same twists over again for this second set of Marley twists. I do have to perfect the “anchoring” part (what I call starting off the twist), because some parts of my head are easier than others. I also have to perfect the front and try to get the twists closer to my hairline. But other than that, I’m loving my Marley twist work!

If you need a video to see the twists in action, here are 2 great ones that I watched before I embarked on my own journey:

Got ready for work in the morning, and rocked a cute ponytail – no muss, no fuss! Yay for Marley twists!

Hopefully when I get better at the twists and can do them smoothly without succumbing to stage fright, I’ll try to create my own video tutorial, because I know pictures don’t always do it justice. If you have any questions or need help, let me know and I’ll do my best!
