Twists...With A Twist for Choca!! :) (And, A Vintage Look)

Pin It
Hey all,

So, today, I decided to take out Choca's beads (She asked me YESTERDAY to change her hairstyle... LOL).  I always remember WHY I don't do beads much on her when it's time to take them out... IT IS SOOOOOOOO TIME CONSUMING!!! And, for a two year old... It takes even longer... With the whining and crying from boredom... WHEW!! However, we got it in anyway!!!

To remove the braids/beads, I used:

Water
Proclaim Tea Tree Leave In Conditioner

Using these products made it a LOT easier to remove the braids and the beads.  They made her hair really soft and loosened up the braid with made it very easy to get through it.  I then did a bit of hair play, and got it ready for the twists...

Top row of braids/beads out... She's rockin' rough and stuff w/this 1/3 afro!! HA!! Rock on, Choca!

Hair sectioned off for the twists... She actually thought her hair was done in this picture... OOPS!
So... We took a break (about 45-60 minutes) for her to have a snack, and then we got back to it!!

To do the twists, I used:

Water
Proclaim Tea Tree Leave In Conditioner
Proclaim Emerald Bergamont Hair & Scalp Conditioner
Eco Styler Gel

I mixed the Proclaim Emerald Bergamont & Tea Tree Leave In together in a container before I put it on her hair, so that it would shorten the process! :)

Now, everyone KNOWS I love her in twists!! It's my FAVORITE hairstyle for her... But, this time, I wanted to do something a little different.

I have a friend on FB named T'Masha who has a beautiful baby girl.  Her little girl wears twists as well, and she showed me a style she gave her that had her hair flat twisted or braided back on one side.  I thought it was TOO cute, so I decided to try it on Choca. 

You know what?? It's gorgeous!! I put SIX flat twists on the left side of her head, and she's gorgeous!!!

Choca's outfit: A Vintage dress that I spent less than $3.00 for (I can't remember the exact price...) SO cute, right?!?!?

Pictures:


See those flat twists??? LOVE!
She's happy!!!!!

Isn't that the CUTEST dress?!?!?!

Mommy's happy little Choca!

I made her laugh and snapped the shot!

Miss Choca!

I <3 this picture!!
She said, "Mommy, hair is pretty!!! I like it!" -- I'm pleased as punch at that, because she was NOT happy when she was getting it done!! :)

It's amazing how the natural hair genre has really taken shape. We have moved from the common afros and locs to sophisticaed, stylish, professional, fun and whacky styles. I love flat twists, I just can't do them. LOL

Charlotte said...

Nicole * Indeed. Folks aren't afraid to have hairplay and be natural as well. That's a beautiful thing to witness! Thank you!!! I love doing flat twists... Wish I could do them on myself!! LOL
