What are twists?
Twists are a form of protective hairstyle that remains popular amongst people with Afro-textured hair. They can exist in many different forms some examples including regular twists, flat twists, jumbo twists, mini twists, two strand twists, passion twists, Marley twists and Senegalese twists. Additionally, you can do twists with your hair only or with added extensions to increase the thickness, length, and longevity of the style.

There are quite a few pros to doing twists as a protective style.
- Shorter time to install compared to plaits and braids
- Easier take-down process compared to plaits and braids
- Looks beautiful
- Low manipulation of your hair
- Hair looks plump and juicy. In other words, easier to get more volume with twists.

With that being said, there are also a few cons to choosing this type of hairstyle.
- Hairstyle lasts for a shorter amount of time compared to plaits and braids

As you can see, the pros and cons to having twists tend to be relative to other hairstyles often chosen such as plaits and braids. Nonetheless, any pros and cons mentioned are a generalisation. What one person may like, the other may dislike. Therefore, it is down to you as the individual whether this hairstyle is for you or not. With that being said twists alone are a great protective hairstyle to choose as your ends are tucked away in a beautiful style that does not require too much manipulation.
