Jenell’s Puffy Twists

If you were around earlier this week, then you were updated on my new journey. I’ve been inspired to wear my hair in protective styles for a full year!  As much as I am going to miss my hair I am doing this in hopes of seeing some good growth.

People are always talking about how important protective styles are and while I am a proponent of protective styles, I’ve never been big on protective styles with extensions. I prefer the roll, tuck, & pin with my own natural hair. This new journey will be very unique for me because most of my styles will be with extensions.

My first protective style install for this year of protective styling were Puffy Twists.


In this video I share with you the hair that was used, how much it costs for the hair, who did it and how much they charged me. I also show you how I blow dry my hair before getting my hair done. The lady that did my hair is Rosy, she is located in Brooklyn NY, her number is 718-346-4717. Tell her Princess sent you.

Jenell's Puffy Twist ExtensionsMy hair is in Puffy Twists. Puffy Twists are Senegalese Twists that are big.
The hair used was Marley Hair by the brand Model Modal. I used 8 packs. My color is 1B

When I blow dried my hair I used an old Hot Tools blow dryer that I’ve had for over 10 years. I used the CHI Iron 44 Heat Protectant, that I got a local beauty supply store. I used a Denman Blow Dry Brush to get my hair as straight as possible.

Stay tuned for videos on how I moisturize my twists, how I set my twists for bed, how I got this style and the basic details on what hair was used to do my hair along with more tidbits.

    I love your hair. I don’t know if I could ever go a full year of protective styles! I’m newly natural. I don’t think it’s been a full 2 months yet but I can’t keep my hands out of my hair! It probably needs to be protected from me.

    Lol. Well, I guess when my braider gave me extra large senegalese twists she was giving me puffy twists without my permission. My concern is potential breakage due to the extra weight on my sections. My hair is very fine and now I have these thick twists on each section. How do you make sure too much hair is not used?

  • Chloe Simone

    Jenell, please how many pieces/packets of hair did you use?

  • Alissa

    If you don’t mind answering, how much did it cost you to do this exact style. I’m planning to come to your city to get my hair done right the first time

  • Shanda

    I love your twists! I am going to join you this journey as well as the castor oil challenge this fall. Will post photos soon as my style is in. :)
