Senegalese Braids or Twists

The Senegalese Twist is a very popular technique for extension styling. The Senegales Twist technique uses two sections of hair that are tightly twisted giving the effect of beautiful rope like twist that are free-flowing and last at least three months. The Flat Twist technique is also a beautiful twist style that rest closly to the scalp to create up-do styles. The Atifah Braids are accent braids that can also be used to create complete hairstyles. They are small to medium spiral braids.

Thanks Ms Drea,

My hair will stay twisted without extensions, though maybe not for three months. Just unit I put some water on it:D

What is the difference between Senegalese braids and kinky twists?

There's not much different no more then what i think.

I think that the difference between senegalese and kinky twists is the type of hair, kinky twists the hair is braided an inch before it's twisted and senegalese is started by twisting.
Also kinky twist can become tangle or nap up .

I saw my cousin put kinky twists in her hair. It was a big ball of nappy hair she bought. I like my own hair, When I twist it or plait the end curls up by itself so I don't have to do anything to make it stay.

Good news; NRA filed for bankruptcy.
Bad news; Police often kill mentally and handicapped people.
I despise these racist killing NYPD. I'm glad Attorney General Letitia James filed a law suit against NYPD for using "excessive, brutal and unlawful force" against Black Lives Matter protesters! The law suit also targets the Mayor, police commissioner Dermot Shea and Chief of Department, Terry Monahan! Several NYPD cops have been suspended, along with many other racist violent killer cops across this nation.
Will the 3 white GOPs in Congress, Gosar, Biggs and Brooks, be charged with sedition and felony murder for inciting and helping Ali Alexander plan the insurrection? Ali Alexander, black trump supporter who started Stop The Steal and organized the insurrection, threw these 3 white terrorists under the bus. All of them should get long prison sentences. Alexander, a convicted felony, will likely be charged first.
2 things to share;
a. 33 more days to go before I hit 200 straight days of exercise.
b. Pls visit orangeseahorse . com. Not selling anything! It's a free site to post true short stories, poems, etc. Also free to read. We have 500,000 views and some writers have been published. These true short stories are poignant and life changing. Thanks,
Why aren't the white domestic terrorists charged w/felony murder and terrorism? YES, I answered my own question with the phrase 'white domestic terrorist'. But let's see if black traitor "Ali Alexander" will be charged w/felony murder for helping organize the deadly insurrection. His white comrades will blame him for influencing them to commit violence. His butt will be tattered after they throw him under the bus.
