Friday Flair: -- Choca: Retwisted!! :)

Pin It
Hey all!!

So, Choca has been rocking the same twists for about a month now... AND... They still looked nice and right:


But, I wanted to change it up a bit... They had NOT loc'd up on me (yaaay)!! I did want her to have some thicker ones though... Just for a change... I LOVE LOVE LOVE Choca in twists of all types, so to go back thicker was exciting to me!!! (Didn't take long to do either).

I used:

Proclaim Tea Tree Leave In Conditioner
African Pride Dream Kids Olive Miracle Detangling Moisturizing Conditioner
my 'special' lanolin mixture (for the cold weather... her scalp tends to dry out)
Little Penguins Organic Mango Illipe Pom
Little Penguins Fresh Cream 

So, I did her hair in sections.  Since I was going to do them bigger, I grabbed sections of the smaller twists and re-did them in that fashion.

With each section, I:
- sprayed it down with the Proclaim Tea Tree Leave In Conditioner
- put about a nickle sized amount of the Dream Kids on her hair and massaged it in.
- undid the smaller twists
- put on my special lanolin mixture (about a pea sized amount on each 'new twist' section)
- put on the Little Penguins Organic Mango Illipe Pom (about a 1/2 pea sized amount on each 'new twist' section)

After all of her thicker twists were in, I used the Little Penguins Fresh Cream to coat her hair.

The Results:





Random Length Check!!! Look at that!!! WOOT WOOT!
I then styled it a bit, because her hair constantly gets in her eyes now. With the products I used to achieve this style, there is a LOT of shrinkage, but it STILL falls in her eyes. So, I pulled it back with some clips:





How cute are these thick twists!?!?!? I'm loving them, and so is SHE!! Sooooooo... It's a win/win!!

The entire style took about 1 1/2 hours to do!
