Default Why I dont like my Senegalese twists (Pics included)

I got it done. I got some pictures. But my concern is that after I came in with human hair and telling her that I wanted it to look like this...

She told me that it'll work best with synthetic. So that's what she used. But the part that, pardon my french, ****ed me up, is when she pulled out her lighter, lit up and passed it all along the twists and she did that for each one. She even lit up parts where I KNOW my hair would be. Crap cost $140. Why? Because she's greedy lol but her reasoning was because I had alot of hair and because I wanted the twists all the way down. 9 hour job this was. Booty still sore as I just came in a little over an hour ago. But I knew I had to rush here and tell my story.

And another thing, it feels hard. Not hard as in gelled up but...hard in a weird way. This will be the longest 2 months of my life I bet.

More pics here..

I'm sorry you had a bad experience, but I have to agree, your hair does look very nice. I really like it.

ooooo honeychile! 9 hours!! But they are very pretty!!!

I think they look GREAT!!


But the part that, pardon my french, ****ed me up, is when she pulled out her lighter, lit up and passed it all along the twists and she did that for each one. She even lit up parts where I KNOW my hair would be.

see....this is one of the reasons why I've only had braids TWICE in my life!! (braids using synthetic hair---not regular ole braids/cornrows with my own hair)

The chic that did my hair did that lighter thing also----to make sure she's burning the ends so they wouldn't unravel---but I wasn't feeling that mess, because just like you---I KNEW she was burning some of my hair!!

Reading that made me feel a whole lot better. Thought when I'd be taking them out, all my hair would be falling out in dramatic clumps.

I think it looks nice (I can't wait to get my hair braided ). The only difference I see is that she braided the synthetic hair into your hair first and then twisted, instead of just twisting it in. But braiding it in first is much better for saving your strands.

Yea, your twists do look nice even though the lady ran a lighter through your whole head? I'd have a heart attack right then and there and storm out of the place!! lol

Sorry your head hurts but it sure does look purty!!!
I agree with the other ladies; she did a good job (in spite of the fact she used the lighter)

The lighter technique would have freaked me out too.

But your twists look very pretty!

I think they're beautiful. Just tell them 'no lighters.' I do so much to keep heat off my hair; open flame just freaks me out.

ETA: I rarely like my hair the first few days after I get it done. It'll grow on you.

They are very pretty and $140 was hella good compared to the prices here in Florida. The africans here charge no less than $150 for braids unless it is plain cornrows. SL is long to them and they will charge you extra. Sorry for rambling.

Anyway...they look VERY PRETTY. As far as the lighter that's a no no in my book. I learned my lesson and if it is braided neatly then you won't have that much hair sticking out and the lighter can be eliminated. My braider knows not to use the lighter on me!!!

I have to agree with you my friend. I don't like the twist that much either. But hey look at the bright side, it is a great way to protect those ends.

They look nice. I thought they always used synthetic hair for senegalese twists? I've never seen them any other way. $140 is not that bad. I paid $200 for mines and that's the standard price here. I wouldn't let them use that lighter or cut the stray hairs though.

I can't believe she ran that lighter thru your whole head but heck folks used to trim the hair in braids to make them look clean and uniform. Your hair looks really nice though.
