This innovative twist on a classic look has become a sensation among women of all ages and backgrounds. So if you’re a lover of good things as I am,  let’s delve into the world of passion twists and why it’s now among the must-wear hairdos of the 2020s.

What’s Alluring About Passion Twists?

This hairstyle involves creating beautiful curly twists using synthetic hair extensions. The technique first started with the popular Senegalese Twists but with its own twist— hence the name. 

What sets it apart is the use of wavy or curly hair extensions that give the twists a more textured and voluminous appearance.

Getting this gorgeous style usually begins with sectioning your hair and adding extensions. Your hairstylist will then intertwine the extensions with your natural hair to create the desired twist pattern which varies in length and thickness depending on your preference.

How did Passion Twists Become Popular?

Miami hairstylist, Kailyn Rogers, also known as The Boho Babe, first created this hairstyle. In an interview with Zoe Report, Kailyn said:

“I’ve always been about styles that are deeply rooted in Black culture, and I wanted something that kind of resembled goddess locs, but also looked like our own hair twisted. In January of 2018, I was thinking and meditating on how I could create a style like this, and one day God just brought it to me and I immediately got up and went to the hair store. I got the hair that I thought I could use to create the style and did it on myself. I didn’t know how it was going to turn out or anything, I just did it, and it worked on the first try.”

How to Care for Your Passion Twist?

While the hairstyle gives off this natural look, it needs proper care and maintenance to keep your twists intact. 

The best way to do this is to oil your twist and scalp often. Also, apply a non-alcohol or silicone-based moose throughout the twist down to the ends.  And don’t forget to cover your head with a silk or satin bonnet before you sleep.

What’s the Best Way to Prep Your Hair for Passion Twists?

It’s advisable you install this hair when your scalp is clean. To prep your hair for this look, shampoo and condition them. For shampooing, use a sulfate-free shampoo to ensure your hair is free from any kind of buildup. And for the conditioner, deep conditioning is best to fully hydrate your hair.

Once you are done, blow-dry your hair till it’s 90 percent dry before you install your passion twists.
