Passion Twists 101

Passion Twists 101

Happy spring ladies! Sorry fellas, yes this is another post for the ladies. Unless you’re interested in passion twists? lol. Let me just start by saying that I’m so glad the cold weather is GONE. The warm weather always puts me in a good mood and makes me want to try new hairstyles!

Last summer I did my own Marley Twists and this spring I experimented with the latest trend, Passion Twists. After hearing about these twists, I decided to check them out and immediately fell in love. Below I’m sharing the tea on products used and everything I learned when doing my Passion Twists.

What you’ll need:
-Blow dryer
-Edge control
-Shampoo & conditioner
-Heat protectant
-Hair moisturizer
-Water bottle
-Oil
-Freetress Water Wave Bulk Hair (I used 5, 12” packs)

The Process:
1. I washed/conditioned my hair and let it air dry an hour before blow drying. This is so that less heat was required (be sure to use a heat protectant).

2. Next I prepped the braiding hair by splitting each piece into two. I started by prepping one pack of hair and opening the other packs as needed. Check out Youbtube to see how to properly prep the braiding hair.

3. I used a little water, oil, and moisturizer on my hair before I started to twist, this was to ensure that my hair was a little moisturized when twisting. I also used edge control when starting the twists for a sleek look.

4. I then sectioned my hair and started from the back to work my way up.

5. You can start your twists with an actual twist or by braiding. I started all of my twists with braids because I had a very hard time starting with a twist.

I have about 40 braids and it took me 6 hours to complete!

My review of passion twists:
I’ll say that I think they’re very stylish and flattering, but compared to my Marley Twists they don’t last long at all. Also, because the braiding hair is so soft and wavy they unravel very easily. They’re practically slipping out of my head lol, but keep in mind that I’m not a professional stylist. They’ve lasted me about 2 weeks and I plan to take them out this weekend. I do really like them, so I may try them again, but I wouldn’t expect them to last for a long period of time.

Have you tried Passion Twists? I’d love to hear your thoughts below!

Love,

Ash
