Choca: Twisted Sista!!

Pin It
Hey all,

So, yesterday I decided to go back to Choca's mini twist style.

The reasons:

(1) The Goldi-Faux style we did was awesome... and looked fantastic... However, she started complaining about the cornrows on either side of her head.  Now, I have a HUGE fear of getting bumps around our hairline from things being too tight... When the bumps come, hair is about to COME OUT... So, I took the braids out and flat twisted them on the sides and put a twisted bang in the back:

Revamped w/the flat twists and loose twisted bang in the back... :)  

(2) Choca kept pulling at it and messing with it.  She popped two rubber bands because she kept trying to pull her hair out of the pony twists (We RARELY do pony tails or pony twists OR pony puffs on her hair for that reason):

The results of her messing with it... LOL & SMH!
So, we went back to basics... TWISTS!!! (My favorite)

The products used:

Water
Miss Jessie's Curly Pudding (2oz. FREE Sample)

Alright!!! So, what I did was slowly take the other hairstyle down as I put the twists in... Works so much easier for me like that... and goes QUICKER for both of us... less stress, less fuss! :) AND, I decided to give her a bang this time as well... I usually part it in the front on the side or in the center, but this time, I wanted it to be free to do whatever style we choose!!!

During the process pictures:
Length check!! :) 

Look at those bangs!! HAHA!! I'm glad her hair has that good old 'deceiving' shinkage!!

So nice...
The top of her head!!! 
It took about 1 1/2 hours to complete, but it turned out great!  It was my first time using Miss Jessie's products on our hair over here, but it worked really well on these twists.  I dig the consistency of it.  It's not too thick, but it is thick enough to do what you need it to on Choca's hair texture. Also, the smell was delightful and not overpowering. AND... like every other product I use on our hair, there is a white film that will go away as the product dries... Takes about 5-10 minutes to melt away.

Finished product:

Digging these mini twists on her!

Whew... I love the bang! AND... The film is gone! :) 

She loves her hair as well!

My Choca!
She was so pleased with it, she did a video shaking her hair!! HAHA!! Only Choca!!


This style will last a GOOD three weeks!! I will be rinsing it weekly and moisturizing it daily! :)

Aww Look at my Choca Baby, she is always so pretty but those bangs are soooo cute. I am with GDL about being jealous of a three week style. We can never get that out of Des' hair.

Charlotte's Avenue said...

Michelle G * Thank you Sis!!! :) I am loving the bangs... SO IS SHE, girl!! The only downfall is that her hair is pretty long and she likes to pull on them and it gets in her eyes... She doesn't like that at all...However, if she leaves her hair alone... She'll be good!! :)

No jealousy!! <3 I'm excited to get where you two are!! :)
