Check out the BBCs take on the natural hair movement. Is it becoming a global trend…


I’ve had my fair share of ‘bun ups’ from the hot comb lol, way back when the hot comb was actually heated on the stove! Just thinking about it now makes me quiver; I remember hearing my hair sizzle before it fell to the ground. Luckily enough, my hair has now fully recovered and is larger than life 😉

Senegalese Twist Tutorial: Part 1

Senegalese twists tutorial NaturalPride

Following the success of the Mini Twists tutorial the Senegalese ‘how-to’ has been requested. This is a protective hairstyle, very good if you want to give your hair a break. The combination of the extensions twisted in with your hair reduces noticeable frizz caused by weekly washes. These twists can usually last between 4 – 8 weeks when looked after right. If you want to add a bit of length or colour to you hair without any permanent changes go ahead and get twisting 😉

Products Used

Eco Styler Styling Gel from Cosmetic Solutions

(Similar extensions to the pack used in the video) Xpression from Your Hair and Beauty

Tutorial Video

Caution ❗ If like many of us particular parts of your hair are weak or your hair-line, try your best not to twist those areas to tight. The extra weight from the extensions can cause hair to break from the root if done too tight.
