It has been about three weeks since I got my Senegalese Twists put inand I am enjoying the break it gives me from doing my real hair. Only one braid has slipped out (near the crown of my head where my hair is thinner) but other than that it is holding up well.
My sister and I have been having fun trying out different styles with these things. My favorite is the high bun (just to get it off your back for a day!) and my sister likes to do the half pony tail, braided and unbraided.
We have been hesitant to try some of the more funky cool radical looks just because we ain't that ballsey but I feel like your imagination is limitless with these braids because they are just so easy to mold and manipulate. You have to get some good pins secured though or it can come tumbling down quickly!
