The other day, I received an email from Tiffany, a CurlyNikki.com subscriber. She has a wonderful idea for a Valentine’s Day Giveaway, check it out:

Hey Ms. Nikki,

I would love to thank you first on your advice on the clear henna I might give it a whirl & the website you directed me to will stay bookmarked.

I have been reading on several sites and you-tube channels and come across a few posts about natural beauties and their wedding days. Your story stuck out to me because it was similar to mine. My husband is the one who encouraged me to go natural about a week and a half before our big day, and we wed with me having about a half an inch of curly sprouts!
The reason I would love to see a wedding post on your site is because you are so open to giving other women ( and a few men!) a platform to share what worked for them on their journey. I love hearing about the products, treatments and techniques, but most of all, I like that the women share their frustrations and problems and how they got through it. I have days where I want to either slap on some perm or go to the kitchen scissors and start over. This site has helped me get through those days.

So Ms. Nikki, can you please consider a post for those natural beauties out there that are getting close to their big day looking for ideas for natural styles? I know one natural beauty

Fleurzty of textureplayground.com has a post about her engagement photos and they are beautiful but I haven’t really come across more. So again please, please please, please and thank you!

P.S. I’ve included a pic of my day at the Oakland courthouse of me, my husband, my best friend & my TWA complete with IC Fantasia. And yes I am tatted up, hood chicks can be natural beauties too!


Here’s the link to my Hair Story.
