Senegalese Twist braids styles
Here goes my December post.. :)
I’ve been MIA all month-long since I haven’t had anything to post about and I’ve also been busy and focused on other things. Anyhow, this December post is happening right now, in the last hour of the last day of this month. Which means that in less than 60 minutes, it will be January 1st, 2014!!!
Currently, I am working on my January protective style: Crochet Micro Senegalese Twists. I know, I know…that’s a mouthful to say. I don’t even know if that is an official styles, but that’s the best way to describe what I’ve got going on here.
Below is my braid pattern:
I haven’t decided whether to sew the end (in the middle) down or not. Also, I would suggest doing the braids in the middle smaller and in an s-pattern rather than chunky braids. Also, to reduce even more tension, you can add synthetic hair to your braid pattern just as you would do a sew in. The only negative thing about that is the bulk it would add to the front when doing these twists. If you used marley hair or a thick/curly hair, it wouldn’t be as noticeable.
I used three packs of Xpressions hair (so far), and I cut them in half. I MIGHT have to purchase a fourth pack (tomorrow I ‘ll know for sure). I also used a bobby pin instead of a crochet needle. I’ve tried using the crochet needle (with closing-latch hook) this past April and it did not work out for me. I started off fine but with snagging my hair often in the needle. It was frustrating to use the crochet needle and I didn’t have the patience so I took out what I started and did some micro braids with the hair. After that, I told myself I wouldn’t try crochet braids again. So this is my first successful attempt at crochet braids, using a bobby pin and my tool of choice instead. It’s just easier for me.
