Senegalese twists can prettify your do for several months at a time, but all good things must come to an end. When you're ready to trade in your twists for another style, you can remove them yourself without paying a costly hairdresser. Senegalese twists are similar to traditional kinky twists but are installed using straight, synthetic hair, which is burned at the ends. Use a little TLC when removing the twists to keep from breaking and damaging your natural hair.
Use scissors to cut the synthetic hair twists 1 inch below where you natural hair begins to make the removal process easier. Start at the end of the twist if you aren't sure where your natural hair ends to avoid cutting your tresses.
Divide the twists into sections so that they are simpler to manage. Hold the twist groupings back with a clip if you desire.
Spray the first section of twists with a leave-in conditioner to make the hair softer and more manageable. Work the conditioner into your hair with your fingers.
Use your fingers to undo each twist, working from the bottom up. Continue with the next section and repeat the process until all of your hair is untwisted.
