What are passion twists?
Created by the Miami-based stylist Kailyn Rogers, passion twists are an effortless take on your standard Senegalese twists and Marley twists. Kailyn specialises in natural/bohemian looking protective styles, and this is heavily embodied by the passion twist style. Passion twists are traditionally created using water wave/passion twist braiding hair, and then installing them using the 2 strand twist method.
How long do passion twists last?
If you Google this question you will find the general answer is that this style can last up to 2 months, citing using mousse and sleeping with a satin scarf as ways to extend the longevity of the style. While it is true that these things can help, you will find that many people complain about how passion twists are prone to frizziness and therefore haven't been able to wear the style for as long as they would have liked. This is due to the fact that the hair is curly, and the twists are often loose - unlike braids or locs, there is much more opportunity for tangles and matting because of these factors.
What hair should I use for passion twists?
Many women attempting passion twists opt for using water wave, or any loose/wavy braiding hair to get the style.
