This Tension-Free Protective Style Is The Focus For Spring & Summer 2023

If you are on naturalhairtok, then you know for spring and summer 2023, mini twists are the focus. Not only for the aesthetics and versatility of the twists but for this protective style's ability to aid in length retention.

When done correctly, mini twists are the perfect hairstyle to help you reach your length goals and learn what works best for your hair type because the style simplifies your routine.


What are mini twists?

Mini twists are tension-free, relieving tension on the hair strands helps to prevent breakage. These twists keep your hair and scalp accessible while still being protective. In this style, you still have the ability to clean your scalp properly as well as remoisturize as needed.

Mini twists help you learn your hair, you install them in sections feeling your hair from root to tip. This puts you in tune with areas that are drier and experiencing damage or are in need of a trim.

What you need to know about mini twists: 

  • Mini twists can be worn for up to 4 weeks. Keep your wash day routine in place for longer-term protective styling.
  • Install mini twists with a mousse, cream, or botanical gel, and test your product combinations beforehand. Nothing is worse than spending two hours installing the mini twists only to have your products flake. Less is more and applying one product and water is enough.
  • Be gentle and patient with the takedown. Use water and a product with slip for taking your twists out. Removing them can take time and you don't want to cause damage when taking them out.

The styling options for mini twists once installed are truly endless, these are the top ways I like to style them!
