     Senegalese twists are fairly simple to do if you have an extra set of hands, or are a skilled natural hairstylist.  Many people have asked on the site and the list how to do them, so I've decided to post the directions.  Once you see how they're done, you should start practicing doing them alone and with assistance. 

     You will need to develop a professional level of manual dexterity in order to add extensions to them.

     This is a dangerous style when it comes to braid tension during styling, so don't cheat.

Make sure your hair clip is very secure, or that your assistant is holding on tight when they need to, or you can twist the hair right out of the scalp.

The supplies you will need are:

  • A rat-tailed comb for parting
  • Hair clips or barettes
  • (optional but recommended for frizz reduction) Hair wax based on distilled water or a non hardenning protein gel
  • Rubber bands specifically for hair and/or filligree tubes.
The basic idea of the Senegalese twist is to twist the hair so that it doubles back on itself, like a phone cord would if you held your finger in one place, and then twisted it back.  It's a handy style for people with long hair or mature dreadlocks who want a temporarily shorter and fuller look.  Just remember that for locs the rules are the same as for loose hair.  Mind that tension at the roots during styling!

The first thing to do, as always, is to plan.  Even though individual braids or twists seem like a straightforward task, you have to consider the shape of the head and the varying hair thickness in different areas of the head.

If all of your sections are parted exactly the same size, you will come out with unevenly sized twists.  Measure the best parting pattern and sizes by how much actual hair you will get.

Because of this, most professionals use a sort of dome-grid pattern or diamond shaped parts.
 

Here's an example of a diamond shaped parting pattern.  For more information on the art of parting, see the free tutorial, Caring for African Hair at Cornrows.co.uk.

Illustrated Step by Step Instructions on How to Do Senegalese Twists

Now, take the first section you want to twist and gently stretch it out to its length.  Make sure it has been combed through to prevent any lumps in the twist.
Hold the hair near the root with one hand or with a hair clip that is secured by hair outside of the section, and with the other hand, begin to twist.

Twist until enough tension is created to cause the hair to begin to double back sort of like a phone cord.  It does not have to be extremely tight.  You want just enough tension and not more.

While still holding the root and ends securely, place a finger at the central point of the twist.
Then allow the two sides to naturally coil around one another.  You can turn your finger that is in the resulting loop a couple of times at this point, to make sure it will catch, and to be able to easily unravel it if you've made a mistake.
Remove your finger and let the hair continue to coil.  Arrange it if needed, to look balanced.

Then clip the end near the root, and secure them together with a filligree tube or snap bead.
