Char's DC Treatment AND Mini Twists (AGAIN!?!?!) Again...

Pin It
Hey all,

So, before I get started with the meat of the potato on this post, I have to say... I thought I'd NEVER do Mini Twists on my hair again... Why?!?!? Well, I left them in for a month last time, and they were trying to loc up on me... What I didn't do was rinse it each week (as I said I would...SMH) and give myself a nice co-wash mid month (again... not following my own advice)... So, this time, I'll actually do that, and log my results... HERE ON MY BLOG! :)

Moving on...

So, I gave myself a DC... This time, I did it with my hair in twists.  During my last DC treatment, I did it with my hair loose, and It took a VERY long time to get through my hair!! I was surprised how long it had grown, and how long it took to get through it... So, I decided to switch it up and see how it worked out!!

Products I used:

Proclaim Cholesterol Conditioner With Aloe Enhancer
Extra Virgin Olive Oil (Store Brand From Ralph's Grocery Store)
Proclaim Natural 7 Oil
Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil Oil Sheen 

I rinsed my hair first:


Rinsed Twists:

Look at all that good, healthy hair! :) 
All that good growth!!! :~D


I then applied my mixture: (I put the mixture of oils in an old bottle and I poured it in my hand and rubbed it in my hair...

What a great concoction this is!! WOOOOOOHOOOOOOOO!!!


My DC TREATMENT is all good and in there!! LENGTH CHECK!!!

My specialty DC bag!! :) 
Then, I actually took a nap!! I covered my head with my satin bonnet and a satin pillowcase so that I could sleep peacefully and w/out incident...(Didn't want all that DC goodness on my bed sheets and pillows):

Shout out to BB for waiting for me do doze off to take this!! :) Don't laugh at me y'all!
I slept for about two hours (*yawn*) and got back to business!

I rinsed out the DC treatment:



Look at all that new growth in one month!! :) Thank ya!!

Then, I got to retwisting them SMALLER!! I took them out in sections and did them in nice SMALL twists... Whew... Took about 2 1/2 hours!! :)

Convo:

CC: Mommy, I remember you saying you didn't want mini twists anymore, because they were too small and took forever to take out... And here you are, doing them again... 

Products I used:

Water
Proclaim Emerald Bergamot Hair & Scalp Conditioner
Prostyle Gel

Pictures:

I <3 how it brings out my natural curls!

All that good white filmy goodness!! HAHA!



The film is slowly melting off...  Mmmm... Texture!!!



Halfway Done!!

Yaaaaaay! :)

And the finished product:

Shrinkage... Look at that that good shrinkage!! :) 




And done!!

I really enjoy my twists!!! And, I'm going to do better with these mini twists this time... I'm in month FOUR of my twist challenge and I have EIGHT more months to go!! Let's go!! :)

Hey Chocas Twin!!! Your hair came out wonderful! I can't wash my hair with my twist in...they won't be twist anymore..lol

Beautiful! I love the twists on you. I love mini twists too and shyed away from them the whole summer due to the same problem you said you had with them. I also did mini twists on my 2 yr old for the first time. I think I will continue to do that as well. I feel like your post is a confirmation of what I have been thinking..lol
Thanks for sharing!

Charlotte's Avenue said...

Coilybella * Thank you so much Beautiful Queen!! I appreciate that!! AND YES!!! The 'locing' experience is not something I look forward to!! So, I'm hoping my method will keep it from doing that! We shall see, huh??? Yaaaaaaaay for giving them to your 2 year old!! I'm a HUGE fan of them on the little ones. It's such an easy style, and it keeps their hair from being over manipulated and helps it to grow... All you gotta do is keep it moisturized and it's all good!! :) CONFIRMATION!!! LOVE IT!! You're comment is confirmation to me as well!! Choca and I are going to enjoy this Mini Twist Challenge we are on, and ride it until the wheels fall off! :)

Thank you for commenting,

Char~

Your hair is sooooo long Char. I cracked up laughing at your sleeping picture but I get the point. Hair Care (morning, noon & night) is very important. Thanks for sharing Sis. ;-)
