Wash Day Senegalease Twists Install

  This summer has been really tough in my personal life. So to give myself a break in the hair arena, I installed my own twists. I washed my hair using Organix Awapuhi Ginger Shampoo and deep conditioned using Aussie's 3 Minute Miracle under my new steamer.
After allowing my hair to air dry and blow drying I was ready to begin twisting my hair. I started my hair after work on Sunday and finished Monday morning. I watched a few youtube tutorials to learn the technique, and after a while it felt really natural. Overall it took about 6-7 hours and I plan to keep them in for 3 weeks total.
I consider this style apart of my wig challenge since it is a long term protective style. I've decided to experiment with different hair textures and twists sizes over the entire time of my stretch. Even though I have been pretty inconsistent with updating my blog, my hair journey is steady going.
I'm half way through my stretch and mentally preparing myself for self relaxing at the end of this lol.

    1. Lol thanks Mel it was easy,! Sure I'll come do yours lol. But I used Xpressions hair which is about 82 inches long, so I cut it in half and it still touches my butt. I used about 2.5 packs.
