Here's a quick update on Bunny's minis/twist hairstyle.
For those of you who missed it, I talking about how I turned her curls into mini two strand twists.
You can check out that post right here.
Anyway, her hair twists have been in for ten days, and they're still going strong!
A little fuzz here and there but nothing serious. Yet. She's pretty hard on her hair so it's only a matter of time before this 'do has to come down!
Now, on to that hairstyle!
Each day I spritz her hair with a mixture of two parts water, one part aloe vera gel, and then a apply a water-based moisturizer on top of that.
Lately I've been using a lot of Mixed Chicks products in her hair, but only time will tell if I stick with those products.
My true love for the longest time has been Queen Helene Royal Curl products so Mixed Chicks has a lot to live up to lol!
I plan on taking her minis down soon so I can do a cute little Easter hairstyle!
Stay turned for that!

For those of you who don’t follow our Natural-hair-care-info.com website, I recently put Bunny’s hair into mini two strand twists!
She has gotten SOOOO complements on them!
They didn’t take that long, they’re aging beautifully, and they really seem to fit her personality!
And for the record, my fingers were tingling for about two days!
Worth it, of course =)
Also, I got quite a few emails (you can contact us on our Facebook Page or through our email address: naturalhaircareinfo at gmail dot com) about the whole process, so I wanna answer those here so everyone who'd like to learn, can learn!
Did you blow dry her hair?
No, I put it into twelve Ghana Plaits three days prior to the actual twisting process began.
Did you straighten it?
Nope, see above.
What products did you use?
Washed: Mixed Chicks Sulfte Free Shampoo
DC'ed: Mixed Chicks Deep Conditioner for Hair
Conditioned: Mixed Chicks Leave In Conditioner
Moisturized: Beija Flor Naturals Cream Brulee
Will you trim her twists?
Yes, I trimmed her hair twists the day after I finished. I took about an inch off of the bottom =)
How long will they last?
I will *make* them last at least a month!
How long did they take?
I twisted her hair over the course of three days, devoting two hours a day to her hair for a total of about six hours, give or take.
How long has she been natural?
Since the day she was born =)
Is that all of her hair or did you add yarn/extensions/weave/etc?
Yes! Every single strand is hers!
How will you maintain them?
This is about day 4 and I haven't done much with them. Those Mixed Chicks products are the bomb! Her hair still feels soft and moisturized. I did, however, pull of her twists up into a hair bun for her gym class but that was it!
Each day I took down four braids (one braid at a time, of course) and changed it into several dozen mini twists
The process was very simple! We will definitely be doing these minis in the near future! Also, I will post different hair styles that we do on them as well as updates! Thanks for reading!
