Passion Twists offer an inexpensive, relaxed, easy-to-maintain and at-home version of what people in the past have paid the big bucks for in salons. Given that they are applied through sectioning off hair, some people are concerned that Passion Twists are bad and have the potential to damage natural hair.
Passion Twists are not bad for your hair if applied correctly. In fact, Passion Twists are particularly beneficial for hair and are a protective style that facilitates hair growth.
Here are the reasons why Passion Twists are distinctly good, rather than bad for your hair.
Unlike tight braids or cornrows, Passion Twists are distinctly more relaxed – aesthetically, that is. They’re far more boho than other styles – which is fitting, seeing as they were invented by hairstylist Kailyn Rogers, who is known as The Boho Babe. Passion Twists really encapsulate a laid-back hairstyle, which is why not only can you do them yourself but it also doesn’t matter if they’re not done very precisely, or tightly – the whole relaxed look is central to their being! Consequently, this is good for your hair as it means the hair at the roots is less likely to break from stress or damage.
They Facilitate Growth
Products promoting accelerated hair growth are plentiful – Passion Twists aren’t one of those, as they don’t speed up your natural growth process or anything of the sort. Instead, they protect the hair follicles, and give your hair the time it needs to grow naturally (without it having to negatively impact your look).
Avoid Elastic Bands Where Possible
Part of the Passion Twist process involves tying the hair into place, keeping the hair at the roots sectioned off (so that it can grow, and so that it is not in the way of the Passion Twist style). This is the primary part where concern for hair damage arises. If you can avoid using elastics here, the likelihood of breakage and damage is slim. That said, this is not an exceedingly tight process, so that likelihood is still quite slim regardless.
If this low-effort, high-results hairstyle appeals to you, then there are two key things to know: how to install them, which are the best ones to buy, and which products are needing to maintain them. Rather than list the techniques and application methodology here, why not learn from The Boho Babe herself? She is, afterall, the mastermind behind the curtain:
Of course, you can’t go about installing them until you have all the equipment. Here is what you’ll need, with recommendations for each:
