and the winner is...... 

Erica S! Email me (nikki@curlynikki.com) ASAP w/ your address!

 
There's monkeys in the trees! Like, lots of 'em. And they're really friggin', ridiculously super cute! #IWantOne

smoothing and twirling wet frizzy curls (7 a.m.)
the same wash and go later that day (1 p.m.)
I've missed the glorious, highly textured results of my wash & go, but the single strand knots and difficulty achieving anything but dry, flattened out, tangled ass curls by day 3? Boo. Bye. I ain't got time for that!

But really, the look rocks and I plan to pull it out for special occasions and in high humidity conditions.  In the meantime, I'll be twisting it up!

However, yesterday I co-washed, followed with Leave-In, Shea butter, and oil and twisted, twisted twisted.Untwisted today and The results were fantastic!!!

I've rocked twists under a turban for the past two days. Haven't decided if I'm going to realease the twists or do another day of protective styling. Either way, I will be rocking a pair of the fiercest earrings and my new favorite summer lipstick. Hope you all have a great day!

I'm rocking a wash-n-go today. I used to call it a wash-n-no because I didn't like the way it looked. Thanks!

wordartistinc said...

This is the last day of a wash n go (like day 7) that has morphed into sort of a puff. Tonight I'll wash n go again for another week.

Taja C. said...

I rocked a side ponytail (that was a result of a three day old twist out) under a fedora..it was super cute because instead of doing the traditional one ponytail I did two ponytails, one atop the other, to give the illusion of one big fluffy, voluminous ponytail #winning

Anonymous said...

Just Now waking up and I'm seeing it's suppose to be in the 90s today which means its going to be a wash and go day with my homemade leave-in and nothing else for my favorite Uncle's cookout. My fam likes how my hair shrinks into TWA anyway.

Carla R. said...

I kept it simple this Memorial Day Holiday since it's kind of warm in the DC area and today marks the 7th month of my transition, so I try not to manipulate my hair too much! I'm obsessed with the high bun look (so simple, so elegant and so cool in the summer), but my a hair is literally cut in a bob right below my hairs PLUS I'm transitioning so I have shrinkage. I added some gel to dry hair and created a high bun with kinky type hair that I had left over from a photo shoot. It turned out perfect with the dresses that I wore this weekend...the textures look natural and I received tons of compliments. I'm now on day four of my high bun style and plan to wear it until wash day sometime this week :)

Ive been complemented on it all weekend! I LOVE the look and its perfect for the summer:)

I wore mini-twists to my church's picnic. They're literally in my hair all the time, because they're not fussy. And for a college student, that is ideal.

No BBQ, in Louisiana it's the crawfish boil! My hair is in twists because the juice can get real...it'll be just right for a twist out when it's time to board the plane back to Atlanta.

BETH said...

I have my hair in a set. It is getting hot here in Detroit, so I don't want any weave hitting my neck. Saturday night, I washed and conditioned my hair with an egg and she's conditioner. Anywho, I braided my hair, rolled the braids with perm rods, and let it air dry. My hair is really one day curly. Since it's longer in the front it is falling to the left side, really cute.

I rocked a BAA (Big @$$ Afro)! We spent the weekend at a friends & I blew out my mane expecting her to braid it up for me, by the time I got through braiding her hair, I was too hot & tired for her to do mine, so I just decided to be FREE. My husband is always begging me to wear it out, he finally got his wish.

I rocked a 4 day old braid-out and it was as big as the summer day is long!

aroundthewaycurl said...

Well, you inspired me to try my first wash and go. I ended up looking like Doughboy from Boyz in the Hood, so braided it up and rocked my braids under a hat. When I got home I took my damp braids out and tried my curlformers for the first time. I'm in love and I have found my summer look. I have my curlformed (made that up) hair in a 'nikki bun'. Thanks, Nikki!

Decided on a last minute Wash and Go for the DC memorial day parade. It grew and by the end of the day I ended up pulling it up to a puff.

I am an "army brat" stationed with my parents in the Washington DC Area where it was steaming hot(97 degree heat index!!!) for Memorial Day. I decided to forget about how hot it was going to be at the local parade my family attended and undo my two strand flat twists to rock a wavy shoulder length style a la the style Shanti from Around The Way Curls wore her hair to their CurlDaze event. Yes I was HOT, and yes my curls began to lose some wave in the heat, but overall it was a good wavy look and I will be able to maintain it for about two more days if I take care at night. I had an outstanding Memorial Day where the work of those who serve our country was reflected upon and celebrated. I am very proud to be a member of a US Army family!

I wore my hair in a headwrap because my blowdryer wouldn't work yesterday. My BBQ was a burger and fries at Five Guys cause I don't know how to grill.

I changed it up and surprisingly, I got a lot of compliments :)....After wearing my hear in a bun for about the last 6 months, I did two strand twists a few days ago. My front pattern is really loose so the roots don't look twisted anymore. I decided to use this to my advantage. I tied my edges down 1 hour before I had to leave. On my way out the door I pulled my hair back in a clip, half-up half-down and put a leopard print scarf on and slightly pushed it back. Apparently it looked better than my usual style :)

I'm a newbie w/ handling my transitioning hair is a bit difficult. These days I'm rocking a bun, and today I rocked a high bun with a fancy headband!

Charnelle said...

I'm still transitioning..so went with my trusty braid out with a glitter headband :)

My hair was in an awesome braided fro hawk style that I've been rocking for the past two weeks. It was on it's last legs, so I jazzed it up by putting a pompador in the front !

Well Nikki my hubby is a vet and today was his day but unfortunately we did not get to BBQ because Im working a full 16 hour day today however my mom did come up (on my request) to watch our 21 month old son and to cook my hubby a good old fashion country cooked meal of Collard Greens, Fried pork chops, Corn bread, Fried green tomatoes, and his all time fav Pecan pie. So my hair was really the least of my worries but I did happen to rock a much loved afro I took down my two week old mohawk sprayed it with some leave in conditioner and water and put a rolled up head band around it and rocked it nappy yet happy

Hello Nikki, enjoyed a family outing at Chima Brazilian Steakhouse. I'm wearing a twist-n-curl. My hubbie can't keep his hands out of my hair today.

Hey Nikki. I rocked my very hot Memorial Day with my hair in twists with one side flat twisted back. You take great pics. Do have an instagram or have you considered getting one?
