Maintenance of Senegalese twists
Washing Schedule: It depends on the hair you get. You may not be able to wash it. Washing can make the braids frizzy and unrecognizable. Consult with your stylist. The easiest way to do this is to pour a small amount of shampoo in a spray bottle and dilute it with water. Spray the mixture onto your scalp, and use the pads of your fingers to remove build up. You must wash your braids once a week. Don’t use creamy conditioners on your braids because they may cause build up and cause knotting at the base of your braids. Light oils (coconut, olive, or peppermint, for instance) are very beneficial to keep your scalp healthy and your hair moisturized; but be sure to use hot oil, to keep your braids looking stunning. Use a small amount of leave-in conditioner to keep your hair moisturized, but not too much so the hair doesn’t become too slippery. Try to sleep with a silk scarf tied around your braids. After you have had them in for a few weeks, you can cut them even shorter for a chic look. let’s move on to styling!
