What do twist braids ideas mean?
Twist braids ideas are the different hairstyles of twisted braids that are done to complement an overall look. The technique involves beginning with natural hair, which is twisted then the braid extensions are added to create this outstanding twisted rope braid.

How long do twisted braids last?
Twisted braids are versatile and low-maintenance, especially in the summer when they are so convenient. This means they can last up to 10 weeks, but if you want this protective style to look gorgeous throughout, wear them for up to six weeks to prevent your hair from breakage and lacking much-needed moisture. This is a protective style, after all.
What is the difference between box braids and twist braids?
The major difference between these two is the technique used to create them. The box braids are created by the intertwining process of three hir strands, while the twists are installed by intertwining only two strands around each other. The twists are lighter and easier on the scalp compared to braids. However, they need more maintenance because their unraveling process is quicker.
Another good thing about the twisted braids is that they look more graceful than the box braids, thanks to their roots blending in perfectly with the twists when growing out. They might be fluffier than box braids but still serve the same purpose of a protective and fabulous hairstyle.
Twist braids remain very popular because of their unique look, how easy they are to install, and how easy they are to unravel. They give many options for styling, which many find convenient. Also, with many braids colors, it becomes easy for everyone to choose what suits their fashion style. With the above twist braid ideas, you will find inspiration to try out your own unique style.
