CurlyNikki Forums Relaunch ($1,125 in prizes!)


Hola Chicas!

Thank you, thank you, thank you for bearing with me through that hella bumpy Obamacare CurlyNikkiForums roll-out.

Natural Hair Big Sisters


2 years ago, when I first launched the forums, NylaCoils came up with an excellent idea!


*re-post from 12/14/2009

I have a suggestion based on a situation that I recently experienced. My mom knows that I am a natural hair fanatic! One day while she was at work, she noticed that a fellow natural could use some tips. She phoned me to ask if I would be willing to share some knowledge, and if she could give her my phone number. I gave her the okay. As a result, T, is now my natural little sister. We call each other to swap tips, where we found henna, and other styling tips and tools.

The natural journey gets lonely and I suppose, that is why your blog and the forum is so successful. We get to connect with you and so many others on the same road. I was wondering if we could do A Natural Big Sister Thread, on the forum?

Meaning, a transitioner could post that they are looking for a big sister to offer support when they get their BC. Or a TWA'er could post that they want a sister who has been natural for over a year. This sister would offer support and even show pics of their BC.
I think it would be another success for the Curly Nikki Empire!!

Regards,
Nyla Coils

Are you a natural vet that wants to be a Big Sister? Or perhaps you're a newbie that needs some guidance... either way, head over to the forums!

TerraD's Favorite CN Forum Topics


As someone who has not had a relaxer since 2003, I transitioned from chronic flat-ironing to natural. I felt like a fish out of water without my ceramic blow dryer and flat iron. I needed to figure out everything from how to enhance my curl pattern to how to keep my curly ends healthy. Here are a few of the Curlynikkiforums.com threads that have helped me:

Skin Care (Most new naturals experience breakouts. These ladies have great suggestions to improve your skin regimen)

Dear Nikki:

First of all, Congratulations on all of your success! The Blog! The Forum! and the Tyra Show!
I have a suggestion based on a situation that I recently experienced. My mom knows that I am a natural hair fanatic! One day while she was at work, my mom noticed that a fellow natural could use some tips. My mom phoned me to ask if I would provide her co-worker with some tips. My mom asked, if she could provide the lady with my number? I gave her the ok. As a result, T, is now my natural little sister. We call each other to swap tips, where we found henna and other styling tips and tools.

Even More Henna Results...


Today, we witnessed the wondrous specimen that is FrizzCurls' hair...an excellent example of the benefits of regular henna treatments. Serita, a long time CN.com reader and curly friend submitted her most recent hair pics as well. She also hennas regularly:

Hey Nik,
I was on your website today and saw the "Henna" postings so I decided to submit some of my recent henna pics. I have been hennaing with Punjabi Prime for over a year now. I henna every two weeks. Henna has definitely made my hair shiny, strong, and healthy. See for yourself!

Share your experience with henna...are you liking the color? Have you reaped the de-frizzing and shiny hair benefits?
