Natural Hair: Protective Styling With Marley/Senegalese Twists (DETAILS)

I decided to put twists back in my hair until my two-year natural hair anniversary, but this time instead of doing Senegalese twists, I decided to try Marley twists.

Marley twists are basically bigger Senegalese twists (to resemble dreadlocks) and you use Marley Braiding Hair instead of the silkier Kanekalon hair. To achieve this look, I used about 4 1/2 packs of the hair ($4.99 each) and it took me about 6 hours. I took several breaks and retwisted a few of the twists several times.

I do prefer this hair over the 100% Kanekalon hair simply because my hair is concealed very well and this hair isn’t so heavy. Also, the ends have not been unraveling and the roots aren’t slipping. I’ll keep these in for about two weeks and then I’m sure I’ll try something different with my hair again. I get bored easily LOL.
