I want to thank you bunches for sharing your hair tips and the love you have for the natural hair God gave you. Your blog has helped and inspired me to continue with my hair goals. I just wanted to share my results of your bunning technique. Since I have gotten serious about the health of my hair, I’ve tried different variations of the bun, I’ve tried the twist outs, braid outs, wash n gos but I haven’t had much success. My hair is F-I-N-E. And after attempting different styles I became very frustrated because they just come out limp and scrawny looking. I tried your TnC back in October or November of 2008 but I didn’t have much success at that either (so I thought at that time). I think in part it was due to my hair being shorter than I had liked and in part I was expecting my hair to come out looking just like yours…LOL! My thoughts were “I have fine hair and CurlyNikki has fine hair” and “CurlyNikki’s and my hair are real similar in texture so surely my results should come out just like hers”. When they didn’t…talk about a let down! But the more I read the stories of other ladies’ different hair journeys and learned that no two heads are alike and don’t expect your hair to turn out like the picture you saw and love your hair for what your hair is, then I really started to fall in love with my hair. I’ve always liked my hair to some degree. I now truly love my hair!
I have been bunning for 4 – 5 weeks now and I will probably continue with it consistently through the summer months. I just love the way my hair looks. It has volume, moisture and shine. My hair is so soft. Thank you…thank you…thank you. :-).
The first pic is the very first bun I did. The second and third pics were done over this weekend. Now, I didn’t use DevaOne Condition but instead used Pantene Pro-V R&N as my leave in. I used my homemade Shea butter mix consisting of Shea butter, Jojoba oil, Emu oil, Biotin, and Vitamin E. I love…love…love my Shea mix! I also used Silk Elements Revive and Restore Anti Breakage Creme. I love this stuff too!
Thanks again CN!

This is just reinforcement for me that I need to stop trying any and every style! Simple really is best for your hair.
I've been experiencing breakage that brings me almost to tears. I'm doing everything right but this one thing..I manipulate my hair waaaaaaay too much. So back to bunning. Thanks for sharing the story. Beautiful hair, Simple yet elegant.
beautiful hair, do you henna?
BEAUTIFUL HEALTHY HAIR! My texture is REALLY similar. Not quite as long. I wish you would post and let us "fine haired" girls know what products you use and your vitamin regimen. Gorgeous!
Pwettty. Your hair forces me to talk like a baby 🙂
to anonymous with "coarse" hair:
girl, don't hate on your hair. It IS beautiful. Know it and believe it!
you can add some more stories they prove to be beneficial and entertaining same time.
I wish i had that kind of hair! my hair is on the coarse side.
simple and elegant. love your style! you look gorgerous! my hair is exactly the same (can anyone say f.i.n.e.?) so i will do the bun too and see what will happen…
Does she have a fotki?
Nik could you try to find people doing buns on shorter hair? I think my hair would might be long enough to bun, but I only see it on long-haired naturals.
This looks really good.
i just can not get past how B-E-A-U-T-I-F-U-L our hair is, no matter the curl size, pattern, or surface texture!!!! i wish every woman was open to discovering this fact!!! it never fails to amaze and inspire when i see healthy beatiful hair on a woman of color!!! your hair is amazing
Your hair is so freakin hawt! Can you tell me where you got that accessory?
daaawwling look @ that shine! Oh so Faboo! YES!! (~_~)
I have tried the T&C and it did not look like CN's but I loved it. I am a little skeptical about the bun, but now I am motivated to try it!
I am going to agree with the other ladies…your hair is so fabulous. Great Job!
My hair is also fine and I haven't tried the T&C yet for fear of what you said. Your bun is absolutely gorgeous!
What more can I say? Simple is oh so beautiful!
