Bye Bye Senegalese Twists? Already?!

This is the last and final article about my Senegalese twists because... well... I kinda sorta took them out. I made it about 16 days and then I just woke up one day and uninstalled them. Here are the 5 reasons I got rid of them so soon:

  1. They are high maintenance! I thought I would have been getting a break from doing so much with my hair, boy was I wrong!
  2. They got too messy too quick. I was literally neatening up the front row approximately every 3-4 days. Uh-uhh!!
  3. Because I workout 5 days a week, I have to "rinse" my hair a lot, and washing and drying the braids were much more of a chore than my own hair.

  4. I don't like hair falling down my shoulders and back all the time (especially when laying down), but the hair was a bit heavy when pulled up (lose - lose situation).
  5. I prefer my own hair to the braids lol. Yeah, umm I really do. Bye boo!!
Since I did it myself, I only paid for the hair so I didn't really lose much by taking them out so quickly. So all's well.
What style is up next? Any suggestions?



  1. Tell me about it. I put in braids last month and wore them for 14 days. Having to wash them just made them unwearable.

  2. 3 weeks in with mines and i havent "washed" it yet. I clense my scalp by spritzing with diluted ACV gently wiping with baby wipes.

    1. oh I c. I sweat heavily when I work out, so not only do I need to cleanse the scalp but the length of the hair as well.

  3. it's been a while since i've been on your blog and i feel like i missed so much, haha.
    looooove these braids.
    i've been toying with the idea of braiding my hair recently and you may have swayed me...


    1. haha they're nice to look at and I see how they could work for others


What are your thoughts?
