mzdaniels asked: Hello I found your blog last night regarding the Senegalese twists, your hair is so pretty. I got the number for Nana and I did give her a call for an appointment, waiting for her to call me back... My question is did the Senegalese twist grow your hair and did Nana put that bun in your hair?
Hi! Glad you were able to find my post and give Nana a call. She’s great. To answer your questions:
1. I think it’s important to remember that your hair going to grow, regardless of what you do. So, the question is really of length retention. Yes, my hair did grow while I had the Senegalese Twists in, but did the twists make my hair grow? No… My hair would have grown regardless. The twists did give me a break from daily styling and manipulation so the length retention during that time was better.
2. Nana can throw your hair up in a bun when you live if you’d like, but I did my buns on my own. It’s SUPER easy to do, but remember to not always pull your hair up/back because you need to be mindful of your edges.
“You are doing a very good job of testifying in the Trayvon Martin murder trial. Taking the witness stand to talk about the death of your friend, reliving the last time you heard his voice by answering endless, probing questions in front of strangers, must be unimaginably hard. But you’ve presented yourself with grace and dignity. This is no small feat when the defense attorney is attempting to tarnish your character and the character of your friend who was killed.
Your task has been made even harder because the court reporter keeps interrupting you with “I can’t hear you” “What was the last part?” and “Say it again.” That kind of disruption to your testimony can make you less confident about the clarity of your expression. And you are only nineteen years old. Please don’t let the defense attorney or court reporter rattle you. I am proud of how you are conducting yourself and I want to offer these words of encouragement..”
How I tame the beast lol. I use Elasta QP Olive Oil & Mango butter, tangle teaser, water and patience. The left pic is of the twists. The right is the “before”. The key to detangling this hair is working in smaller sections and doing larger twists. #naturalhair #summerweave
