Choca's Twists & Length Check!!

Pin It
Hey all,

So, it was FAR time for me to re-do Choca's twists.  She's been wearing the SAME twists since October 10th, so it was about that time!!

Three Week Old Twists!! :) HAHA! 
With her twists these past three weeks, I continued to keep it moisturized each morning (with water, and leave in conditioner) and greased every few days to seal in that moisture, while also letting her hair breathe.  They kept really nicely! Taking them out today was actually NOT a task, and her hair was not too tangled or hard to get through. I have been TRYING to find a way to keep her hair as detangled as possible, while keeping her style as long as possible, and I've found it!! :)

Alright.. So, I retwisted her up today.

Products Used:

African Pride Magical Gro

I basically did the SAME style she had before again.  I love it, it works and it lasts!! WIN/WIN!!

She wasn't the HAPPIEST HAIR GETTING DONER, but, you know... 




All done!!! Yep... She has the bangs again! :) 

Her, "I'm not happy, but Imma smile anyway!" smile... HAHA!! :-/ 

Yep... Going for THREE MORE WEEKS with this style!! :)


Length Check Time! So, I was checking out Tracey's blog over at BabyBellaHair (please check it out!! She has the cutest little Natural Queens to be, and she's a beautiful Natural Queen herself. She gives them the cutest hairstyles and her hands are AMAZING with accessories), and I saw two blogs of hers (Length Check I & Length Check II) where she speaks about a length checking technique that was given to her by Tiffany over at Diva Locks (Another Natural Queen with amazing hands.  She makes the cutest things and does her little Queen to be's hair in the cutest styles.  Check her out!).

You ready for it??!?!? Do a length check with a tape measure/ruler!! HA... Who'd of thunk it!?!??! -- So, I got to measuring!!

First, I did it with her hair IN twists:

Back: 5"
Right: 6"
Left: 6 1/2"
Front: 7"
Middle: 7"

Then, I did it with her hair free:

Back: 5 1/2"
Right: 6 1/8"
Left: 7"
Front: 7 1/4"
Middle: 7 1/4"

What a difference, huh?? I'll be giving her this length check every month to see the progress (however big or small). It'll also show us what different hair products do with her hair!!! I'm so excited and so thankful to the two T's above me for this newfound love of mine!! HAHAHA!! :) I'll even be doing this on myself every 3-4 months or so!! :)

I hope you all enjoyed this blog post!! I know I enjoyed doing it for you!!!
