Passion Twists: The Must-Try Bohemian Hair Trend of 2024

I. Introduction

The natural hair world is being taken over by a fresh, bohemian-inspired trend in 2024 - passion twists. This faux loc style exudes effortless cool with its gloriously messy, free-flowing texture. Since debuting in 2018, passion twists have rapidly risen as a must-try protective style for women everywhere.

II. What Are Passion Twists?

Passion twists are two-strand twists created using synthetic Water Wave crochet hair extensions seamlessly blended with your natural hair. The extensions are made from a special crimped, kinky fiber that mimics the frizzy, coiled pattern of real textured hair. This unique texture is the defining feature of passion twists - it gives the style an intentionally imperfect, unraveled look with glorious frizz and lots of voluminous dimensions.

Unlike thin, manicured Senegalese twists or uniform, neat faux locs, passion twists fully embrace an undone, wildly textured aesthetic. The twists have an organic, free-flowing quality with kinky bends and coils throughout, resembling the twisted, tangled shape of passion fruit plant vines growing naturally in the wild. This raw, bohemian feel is part of what makes the passion twist style so alluring and versatile. The controlled chaos creates a romantic, whimsical vibe while still looking chic and stylized when installed properly by a skilled braider. The kinky Water Wave texture gives passion twists hairstyles unparalleled volume, movement and character that perfectly complements the overall ethereal, carefree look.

III. The Installation Process

While the finished look is carefree, the installation process for passion twists is quite meticulous. It begins with stretching, moisturizing, and sectioning off the natural hair. Then for each individual two-strand twist:

  1. Take a small section of natural hair and divide it into two parts.
  2. Make an "X" part with the Water Wave extension hair.
  3. Apply gel or edge control at the roots to lock in the extension.
  4. Twist the extension hair together with the two natural sections.
  5. Continue twisting down, allowing the twist to coil and tangle organically.

Smaller, thinner twists create a fuller, more textured look while larger chunkier twists have more dramatic shape and movement. Most styles use 7-10 packs of Water Wave hair depending on the desired density and length.

V. Low-Maintenance Luxury

Beyond their showstopping looks, passion twists are also prized for their low-maintenance luxury. Since your natural hair is tucked away within the extensions, there's minimal daily styling required once installed. With proper care, these twists can last an impressive 6-8 weeks.

To keep passion twists fresh, experts recommend:

  • Spritzing with a lightweight leave-in conditioner 1-2 times per week to prevent dryness
  • Gently retwisting any stray pieces every 2 weeks
  • Cleansing your scalp weekly with a dry or creamy scalp treatment
  • Sleeping with a satin bonnet or pillow to reduce frizz
  • Avoiding overexposure to water which can cause premature unraveling

"Passion twists are a great protective style choice," notes Stephen. "The low-tension install and curly texture makes them gentle on your strands while you get all the glamour."
