Senegalese twist

     Senegalese twist, is a form of twist that is used with synthetic hair. This type of hair is also used for box braids and corn rows. All one needs to do to find synthetic hair is to go to their neighborhood beauty supply and ask for it. As a hair dresser I do not like doing this style because it is usually requested to be braided long. Many have rocked this style and continue to but it can be very time-consuming. When it is requested I usually prefer to have someone helping me. With someone helping it can be done in eight hours.

      1. Is there a way to stop the ends from unraveling other than using glue? I know about the dipping method I’ve tried it and it unraveled while I was dipping. But maybe its because I didn’t use black gel. Could youl help pricilla?
