Sylvia Rocking the Curls...


My sister Syl writes;


(a la Kanye): Who taught you to put down the flatiron every once in a while?...Nikki taught me.

My routine was pretty simple, and taken straight from your book. lol I shampooed, then detangled using Aussie Moist conditioner. I rinsed that out and used the Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine Leave-in. Finally, I put my hair into 10 sections, if you can consider what I do "sectioning." I kind of just grab and go. Why 10? Because that's how many flexi-rods come in a pack and I only bought 1 pack. They're too expensive. Anyhow, I made it work. Twisted my hair with Herbal Essence Totally Twisted gel. Curled the ends on flexirods, and went to sleep. Woke up the next day, took it down, and ran my fingers through it with the Totally Twisted. I pinned it back, and there you have it.

Nikki taught me well. Nikki taught me well. ;-)

I saw the pic first and was thinking "that girl looks like Nikki... I wonder if she noticed the resemblance too..."

Then I actually read the article and realized "DUH! That is her sister!" LOL!

This looks really great and it seems as if there's no heat damage. Keep up the good job! Please let us in on your secret to preventing heat damage.

keisha said...

It's gorgeous! You can do it...no heat..no heat!
Nik, I understand you're reaction as ppl say the same about me and my sister but like you we don't see it! LOL! You're both beautiful!

Sorry Nikk but you couldn't deny her as your sister (IF YOU WANTED TO) LOL you two look a lot alike.
Syl, your hair is gorgeous and apparently it runs in the family cuz I saw your mom's hair and it was pretty as well. This looks great on you. Good job and yes, your sibling with the gorgeous hair taught you well. (SMILE)

Too cute Syl! And y'all do look alike :-) cute Kanye reference by the way!

Coily84 said...

Love the Kanye West reference....was jus listening to that song today cracking up.... gorgeous hair!! :-)

Syl said...

Thanks for all of the compliments. And yes, I do think that I will be putting down the flat iron more often. I have no intentions of completely turning my back on it, but it's great to have other styling options. :)

Syl said...

And sorry ladies, but I'm with Nik. We honestly don't look that much alike. lol :-)

skillsgill said...

Nik and Syl ... sorry, butcha do! LOL!! You're not identical, but there is a STRONG sisterly resemblance=). But, I completely understand your response as my sister and I used to get confused for twins, for each other and still get told we look so much alike. And, just as you did, we deny it and look each other like, "What are they looking at??!?!" LOL.

Beautiful hair Syl! It's definitely great to have the versatility to style straight or curly, especially if you are able to prevent heat damage and can go weeks without putting the flat or curling iron in your hair! I wish! LOL!! Nik, when was the last time you straightened your hair? Is it just something that you have no interest in ever doing again due to your "past life" with the flat iron;-)? I think many of us are tempted if not convinced to straighten just because we want to see the difference and length=).

Syl - your hair looks great.

Cute.

P.S. Flexirods @ Sally's about $9.99
Flexirods @ the neighborhood BBS about $2.99

I brought one pack at Sally's myself, saw the ones at the BSS for cheaper, and stocked up.

Been trying to figure out who you ladies look like--it's your dad (Nik's wedding pictures)

Pamela said...

Niki, Syl, you two are so funny. My daughters don't think they look alike either. My youngest gets mad when people tell her she looks just like her older sister, LOL. But, they DO look alike. Guess they just don't see it themselves.

That was actually really funny!
