Of all the verbiage in the article, this statement is the one that put me on my feet........" co-authoring a natural hair care guide for Harper Collins to be published next spring". Nik, you have been very, very busy! I can hardly wait to get my hands on the guide (autographed copy, please).

Congrats again - 2012 will be a great year and I am proud to be a part of the journey!

Congratulations Nikki! You are awesome.

This has nothing to do with the awesomeness of Nikki but...to be kind of negative... "More black women "comb out" chemicals" --wtf? A little more research please.

Congratulations on your recognition! I am so glad that natural hair is being embraced more and more each day! When I first started on this journey there were so few naturals, but now we are growing in numbers and I feel this is how it should be! Thanks to pioneers like you, more naturals are better informed and reaping the benefits of growing acceptance of their natural locks! I am thrilled beyond words!

Venita said...

I'm so happy I found you and your website Nikki. I'm not sure what my hair would look like if I hadn't stumbled upon this website. I probably would have just given up and gone back to relaxers because I thought it was easier.

Thank you and congratulations!

I noticed several people saying that natural hair is great because you can wear it curly or straight, sometimes in the same day. I will probably never straighten my hair again. I got is flat ironed to get a trim and there is a big section that won't curl back up anymore.

Kiki said...

So proud. I went natural in 2004 and haven't looked back. The only problem I have run into is, being a military spouse and moving often, if finding hair care professionals in the small, backwards places we end up, lol.

I always share this site with friends and family and even strangers.

Congratulations Nikki!!! I am soo happy for you!!!
I am a current transitioner and I have gone 4 months without a relaxer and I will continue to grow out my natural hair, until I reached my length goal to big chop. I love your site!!! Thanks for all the inspirational photos of natural hair women as well as your own photos/videos and all the information that you provide to help me stay up to date on the best products to use and daily up keep for my hair.

Congrats Nikki! Thanks to you for all your hard work. I know without this site I never would've been able to go natural. You and everyone I've met on CN helped so much and made things much easier for me.

It makes me proud to see the recognition of such a wonderful community. CN's going big time! I'm so happy to be part of the growing group of people who are putting away the chemicals and letting our natural hair shine.

I'm excited to see you've got a book coming. I'll definitely be buying it.

Not surprised! Congratulations!!!! You've come a long way! I was actually shocked and surprised to see you and naturallycurly.com mentioned in my E-Commerce book!
