Hola chicas! 

It's that time again! The images below are of CN readers at their work, on the town, and with the fam. Showing us all that natural hair is not a fad, it's a way of extension of our beauty!

Finally I decided to go natural! At first when I cut all my relaxed hair I didn't accept very well because I never saw my hair so short, now... I am LOVING it! <3 #curlyhair #proud #natural @safodastyle

How to Retain Length Without Protective Styling

I rarely protective style. I’ve talked about it and said that I needed to in fear that I would stop retaining length as my hair has gotten longer, but eh…I just never got around to it.

by GG Renee of AllTheManyLayers

"Do not be roar, to be traditional, to be vulnerable, to be predictable or unpredictable or to be any of the things we are and are not supposed to be. Do not be afraid to change your mind, clothes, opinion, or hair and the next day change it all again. Do not be afraid, that is the only thing you must not be."

*Describe your a-ha moment.
