Spilling The Tea On The Popular Spring Twists Protective Style
Hair styled by @BraidsByAja in Houston, TX

When it comes to styling our natural hair, it’s so fun to experience the versatility of our kinks. We literally have the option to mold and style our hair anyway we please. But with that versatility comes a lot of time and effort put into creating those styles. Sometimes it’s nice to install a “protective style” of some sort, and just let our hair be.  Today, I’ll be spilling the tea on the popular spring twists protective style and why I love it!

Spring Twists

There are some popular hair protective styles that you can wear in the summer. But nowadays, there’s one particular protective style that is all the rave. It goes by many different names including, but not limited to: spring twists, mini twists, fluffy twists, natural twists, bomb twists, etc. I KNOW you’ve had to notice these beautiful twists floating around Instagram and Pinterest, with women rocking them in all lengths and colors. I know I’ve noticed! And I couldn’t wait to try them out for myself.

How Much Does it Cost?

Unfortunately, I was not willing to go to a stylist and pay $300-$500 to get it installed. I’m more of a DIY type and love experimenting with new styles on my own. So I finally tracked down the type of hair that stylists use (even though for some reason a lot of them like to keep it a secret)….and I got to work!

Is it Heavy?

This hair is unlike any extension style I’ve ever tried. It’s easy to put in, comes in a variety of colors, is versatile and most importantly, is extremely LIGHTWEIGHT! I used these twists as my protective style towards the end of my pregnancy and those first few weeks with a newborn, and I loved it! No extra tension on my scalp, no itchiness, and no headaches. Not to mention it did not cost a couple hundred dollars. It really is a dream style for me.

How To Maintain It?

One of the best things about this style is that it’s low maintenance.  At night you put on a bonnet, maybe tie a satin scarf around your edges and go to sleep!  If your scalp is itchy you can use an oil, like the VoiceOfHair PureFix Hair Elixir and rub it through your scalp. That oil tingles and helps stop the itching, while promoting growth and nourishing your scalp.

What’s My honest opinion of this style?  Where Can I Purchase the Hair?

I created a review/demo video about the pros and cons of the hair —though I was not able to pinpoint any negative aspects, I seriously just love this hair.
I would encourage you to watch the video to learn about why this should be your next protective style. And if you’re already sold on it and just want to move forward with purchasing, then you can get it on Amazon right here. And in 2 days, they will ship it to you if you’re a prime member. Talk about a win!
I thoroughly enjoyed rocking these spring twists and I know you will too. If you do end up installing it, make sure you tag @voiceofhair and @simplyjade_101 to show us your beautiful work.

    I enjoyed the video. I got my hair in crochet twists . Because my hair is natural. Crochet twists are the best protected style. Very light weight I agree. I love it . I will be wearing my twists for a long time. I will take it down , and wash my hair oil my hair . Next day crochet it again . I will be wearing these in the spring , and summer too. My real hair is neck length. My goal is to grow my hair pass my shoulder.

    HI!! I appreciate your article and I am ready to move forward in trying this style for myself! Quick question, would you provide the brand of hair you used?

  • Carol Mccree-Green says:

    Hi love your style and demonstration. I have one question. Can you do the sections larger or do they have to be very small sections. I live the style but that’s a lot of twists. I even do big box braids and cornrows. I don’t do a lit of small twists. I will do more for this style but do they need to be as many as you have. Just asking. Thank you, Carol G.

    • Brandelyn Green says:

      Glad you like it! You can definitely do bigger sections- just know that the bigger the sections, the shorter amount of time the style may actually last (generally smaller braids/twists don’t get frizzy as fast) but definitely experiment!

  • Christina says:

    Thank you I think I’m going to try this method

  • Danielle says:

    Hey thanks for doing this tutorial you answered a lot of my questions. I do have another one though…I workout and sweat like crazy, does this hair frizz up easily? I would love for it to last a least 2 months

  • Michael Alexander says:

    I have natural dreads so this hairstyle would not work for me. Do you have different styles for dreadlocks?

    • Hi Michael! You can actually do this style on top of locks (by wrapping the twists around the locs). However, we are definitely working on finding more style inspiration for our loc’d sisters and brothers! Thanks so much for the feedback.
