Inspiration Blvd: Goldi-Faux -- (with a DC treatment to boot!)

Pin It
Hey all,

So... I saw this abSOULutely amazing FAUX HAWK style over at Goldilocks*n*Me, and I had to try it out on Choca... Before I go on, PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE check out the above linked blog and follow her... She's a BEAST with her hands and gives her beautiful little girl the most amazing hairstyles!! Her blog is amazing!! :) 

Moving on... 

In order for me to do this style, I had to remove the Twisted Marilyn Monroe Faux Hawk, and give her a really good deep conditioning treatment.  Once I took down this hairstyle, I got to DC'ing!!

What I used:

Proclaim Cholesterol Conditioner (Aloe Enhanced)
Proclaim Natural 7 Oil

I sprayed her hair down with water (before I took down the previous style and after) and I then began to slather all of the Cholesterol goodness on her head... After getting it all on there, I finger combed through her hair to make sure it was detangled.  I then put on about FOUR QUARTER SIZED AMOUNTS of Natural 7 Oil on her hair and rubbed it in... 

Picture Break:

Thumbs UP!! :) 
I then covered her hair up in my FAMOUS plastic head wrap, and let it sit for 25 minutes:

After the treatment was complete, Daddy and I rinsed her hair really nice and gave her a nice t-shirt patting to get out a lot of the excess water.

Alright... Now it's time for the Goldi-Faux!!! :)

Products I used:

African Pride Magical Gro
African Pride Olive Miracle Anti-Breakage Formula
Proclaim Tea Tree Leave In Conditioner
Black Rubber Bands

I parted her hair in the back at the bottom, applied the Magical Gro, Olive Miracle and TTLIC, finger combed it through, and put it in a rubber band.  I then twisted it into three twists:

Lookin' right!!
Now, this is where it gets crazy... Choca did NOT want to get her hair done.  She wanted to go to the mirror and look at her fro.  She then wanted to do more homeschooling. After that she got to crying and saying, "Mommy, I don't want hair done.  I don't want hair done." -- Daddy came to her aid (of course... Such a good Daddy), and sung to her, hugged her, kissed her and soothed her to sleep so I could do my business!! :)  

Now, I did change it up a bit, because Choca's hair is not as long as the inspired style, and I didn't want it to be an exact replica (I'll be doing that for BB!! hehe) 

Sadly, because of the events I spoke of, there are no pictures of the actual PROCESS of her getting it done.

Finished style:

It turned out really well.  After she took her little cat nap, she woke up and said, "Mommy, I wanna get dressed. Pictures!!" -- So, we picked out a cute vintage dress (it's now a shirt on her... She's had it for about a year...), some cute tights that my sister got her and VOILA... Instant MODEL STATUS!!!

I love this style on her... You all KNOW I'm a Faux Hawk Queen!! SO, when I saw the style that Goldilocks*n*Me posted up, she gave me so much inspiration and I had to attempt it!!! (Thank you for being my inspiration for this style, doll!!) 

This is a really easy style folks, and so very cute!! I hope you all try it out!! :)

Comments: Leave them here, folkidokes!!

Please spread the word about my blog as well folks!!! I'd appreciate it greatly!! <3

Keep Watching,

Yes, yes, yes Char! The style GDL posted was on my "to attempt" list! I love this variation, Baby O's hair is shorter so when I do her hair it will be a variation of your inspiration! Love it and love the style GDL did, too!

Michelle G said...

Awww My Choca Baby is sooo pretty and then with all the styles you do on her. GDL style looks good on her. Lil Sleeping Beauty to Model in 2.5 seconds flat...she is definitely preparing herself, not that she needs it.

I swear by the African Pride Miracle Gro when Des was lil that was one of our staples. She doesn't like it now. Kids and their opinions...ugh!

Charlotte's Avenue said...

Michelle G * Why, thank you Sis!! :) -- I appreciate that!!! She's a great hair model for me, and all my crazy styles... Even if she's not up for it!! HAHA!! :) And yes... She went from knocked to posed up really quick!! :) --

Girl, African Pride is great!!! And yes... Children love to speak their mind once they get old enough to do so and tell you what they like and dislike!! HAHA! :)


Goldilocks*n*Me said...

Oh my goodness, you better not ever bring this child into my vicinity, I promise you will pull back a NUB, lol! And everybody giving me all the love and warm fuzzies is so great, thank you ladies for swelling my head up today :) I <3 you all!!

Charlotte's Avenue said...

Goldilocks*n*Me * Hehe! Well, thank you so much!!! And yes, the hands on the hip picture is something else!! Choca is A PIECE OF WORK!! :) -- HAHAHAHA @ pulling back a nub! :O) I'll keep that in mind!! HAHA! :) <3 And all of the love is deserving!! You are amazing and your hands are crazy great!! You are an awesome Queen!! :)

<3 you much,

Whew-wee that child has a lot of hair! If nothing else testifies to how well you're taking care of it, that length and thickness surely does! And the faux-hawk was super cute on her! :)

Charlotte's Avenue said...
