Q/A Sessions – Question of the Year
- How to maintain Senegalese hairstyle?
Maintaining Senegalese hairstyle requires some steps. You need to follow these properly if you want your Senegalese hairstyle to look perfect, remain healthy, and catch a lot of attention. So, what you have to do is, you have to wash your hair with shampoo at least four days a week.
You might have noticed that African women do not wash their hair regularly. They do this because regular usage of water damages the twists. You should apply an appropriate amount of edge control cream and moisturizer in the middle of your scalp till the back end of your natural hair.
Too much appliance of edge control cream and moisturizer is restricted because it damages the hair. After the Senegalese Twist is complete, be careful not to tie your hair too tight. Tying your hair too tight will create pressure and extra tension on your hair.
This tension will cause you spinal cord and back neck pain. This is very harmful. Also, too much tightness in the hair tie causes hair fall rapidly.
