Whats Perfect Style for Long-lasting Spring Twist?

The truth is you can rock almost all styles and all length but because of its core springing feature that doesn’t last on some styles you just have to pick; crotched short updo, bob, chin-length or bob with bangs. Anything longer than that has a story to tell or maybe a secret still not disclosed.

Some people actually can rock longer styles for a longer time than those short ones- everyone’s a little bit different. The point is to go for what works perfectly and fine for you. While I was researching about spring twist, I read everything readable, reviews, tutorials maintenance routine, experience and so far so good in terms of duration no matter the length or quality of extension used, the average durability on hair is 3 weeks at least.

Newbie? Take Note

Everyone knows this, but I just think I should emphasizing it over again. You must make sure that your hair is washed, moisturized and stretched. This prep makes hair manageable, making it easier to style and most importantly saves time.

If actually, you want spring twists that can last for at least 4 weeks, then steer clear from cheap hair pack, quality differs likewise the price. Cheap twists always end up tangling. No matter your maintenance skill and products, wrong hair or product can never turn original.

Don’t make your first impression a horrible one. I noticed most ladies complaining they ended up installing rope twists instead of spring. Yes! Because they are twisting it tightly. Braiding and twisting are never the same. For sure you are always free to DIY, but I always recommend you allow hairstylists to do their job.
