I left my passion twists in for 5 weeks and now it’s time to take them down. I figured I would share with you guys my experience of having passion twists.
Taking down my passion twists on my 4c hair | Passion Twists review
Here’s how I did my passion twists and how they looked when I first had them in my hair versus how my actual hair looks after taking the twists out.
Things I did to maintain my passion twists
I used oil on my scalp every 3-4 days.
This helped with keeping my dandruff at bay and it kept my scalp moisturized.
I kept my hair in a bonnet most of the time.
Since we’re in a pandemic and I pretty much stay at home most days, I barely took my bonnet off which meant that my hair wasn’t constantly going through everyday wear. My twists looked pretty neat for the most part.
Week 1-2: My hair looked pretty neat for the most part.
Week 3: I started noticing my hair growing in and it started losing definition at the parts of my scalp.
Week 4-5: A decent amount of my was starting to unravel about an inch down the base. The braids I put in my hair were starting to look more defined where you could tell the difference between my hair and the passion twist hair. I definitely plan on twisting the hair with my hair next time.
How much growth did I have by the end of the 5 weeks?
My hair grew about 3/4ths of an inch long. I think it probably would have grown more if I had sprayed some sort of spray moisturizer on my hair at least twice a week.
How long did it take to take down my passion twists?
I had 41 twists and it took about 3 and a half hours for me to take the twists down and unbraid my hair. I expected my hair to lock up pretty badly, but it didn’t lock up too much.
I also noticed that my hair felt extremely soft. I assume it’s because I used a leave in conditioner when I braided my hair so it didn’t feel dry when I took the twists down.
Would I put passion twists in my hair again?
I definitely would. I loved that I didn’t have to do anything to my hair. This is a great protective style to have that doesn’t require any effort once you have it done. I’d highly recommend it for anyone with 4c hair.
