1. I’m currently rocking a head full of Bantu Knots…ouch. For the life of me, I couldn’t figure out how to loosen them up without compromising the knot completely. Oh well. This is my second attempt- I’ll get it eventually. It only took me 40 minutes this time, so I’m happy.

I’m not the kind of person that wears rollers, twists or knots out of the house, but I’ve gotta be fresh for the Hair Show, so alas, I’m rolling out just like this 🙂 We’re hitting the road in a few hours, and meeting my Aunt in ATL tonight. I’ll probably take them down once I get settled in at the hotel. But in the meantime, I’m searching my house for a scarf to hide my head! Vain? Probably. But don’t act like I’m the only one!!

2. I’ll only be attending the show on Saturday. I’ll be there from 10am-7pm, and of course you’ll be able to find me at the After Party, and the After After Party 🙂 Can’t wait to meet ya! If you’ll be purchasing tickets at the door, ask for Bob, and tell him you’re a CurlyNikki.com reader. For those of you that can’t make it, I’ll be documenting the event to the best of my ability…pics, interviews, and commentary.

3. Thanks for the feedback on the new diggs! It started off as an ‘add a few navigational tabs’ project, and turned into what you see now. Thanks for the positive feedback and suggestions!!
The search box is back…your wish is my command 🙂

4. Nuclear green henna powder just ain’t right. Please avoid it all costs. I attempted to mix up a batch of Al-Aroosa henna (the other cheapie brand I purchased) on Wednesday night, only to discover what I believe was dyed powder. Some manufacturers actually dye the powder green in order to make it appear fresh. Gross! I dumped that mess right out…I’ve never seen such a thing! Shocked and appalled.

So, for the record, as far as cheapie hennas go, Al-Aroosa is crap, and Dulhan, even with the sticks and stems, is decent. But that fine sift, silver box Jamila….this ish right here…this here… Amazing! I henna’ed with it after a short hiatus, and remembered why I fell in love in the first place. Great stain, easy application, and it rinsed out like conditioner.

haha, I guess that was 4.

Later Gators,

p.s. a bit or randomness- is it wrong for me to like ‘Knock You Down’ as much as I do?
