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!! :)
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...
|Thumbs UP!! :)|
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:
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.
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!! :)
