They are also very lightweight and give a healthier appearance to protective hairstyles. So, if you are looking to switch up your hairstyle in a major way, then take a look at these cool passion twists hairstyles given below. Read on!

What Are Passion Twists?

Passion twists are pre-twisted extensions that can be clipped to your natural hair to add fullness and volume. Their texture mimics the natural texture of curly hair, making it easy to incorporate them into one’s hair. They are available in varied styles, textures, lengths, and colors. Sometimes, they come with additional accessories like beads, rings, feathers, and other embellishments.

Now that you know what passion twists are, here is how you can style them:

  • Prep Your Hair

Begin by detangling your hair with a wide-tooth comb and dividing it into small sections. Secure them with the help of clips or rubber bands.

  • Add Extensions

Put one section of your natural hair in the pre-looped end of the passion twist extension and secure it well. Repeat this step for the remaining sections of your hair.

  • Twisting

Now take each section of your natural hair and begin twisting it with the extensions. Make sure the twists look even in size and tightness.

  • Ends

Once you reach the ends of the hair, secure them with hair ties. You can also dip the edges in hot water to seal them and prevent them from unraveling.

  • Set It

Finish off with a gel or a leave-in conditioner for a glossy and polished look.

Passion twists are versatile and can be styled in various ways. Find out what they are in the next section.
