Show and Tell– The Christmas Edition

By January 27th, 202115 Comments

Hola Chicas,

Did y’all miss me?! I sure missed you! I was without internet access for 2 days… it felt like a friggin’ eternity. Although it’s no longer Friday, I thought I’d share the Fierce Christmas pics that I’ve received over the past few days. I hope each of you had a blessed and delightful Christmas. I went to midnight Mass, cooked with granny and my sister on Christmas morn, opened gifts, ate lots, slept, and ate some more! It was awesome.

Anyway, show your fellow CN.comers some love!

Happy Holidays! I decided to do a simple wash n go puff for christmas. That’s it!

Courtney from Miami here! This is my Christmas look!

Show and Tell-- The Christmas EditionMary:
I just turned 20 on the 20th and wanted to have my last kiddy Christmas, so I did pigtails and curls! I got this style from the post titled ” Baby Girl’s Natural Hair and Flexi Rods” from They came out great and everyone adored me. Pulled them off with the hat the next day as well.

Show and Tell-- The Christmas EditionBrittn44:
This is my Christmas Eve look. The style was a few days old (*lol*). I did two flat twists on each side, and pinned the rest of the hair in the top. In the back, I did a Twist-N-Curl with foam rollers on straightened hair, but I prepped it with my olive oil-water mixture and Garnier Fructis Sleek-N-Shine Leave In Conditioner Creme. For Christmas Day, I just tied it back in a ponytail. (btw, I’m transitioning and about to BC.)

Show and Tell-- The Christmas EditionCurlyErnie:
I hope this holiday has brought you lots of love, blessings and of course a few gifts! Here’s my hair today, a bantu knot out on a 4 day old roller set (a la MahoganyCurls). Thanks for all of your support on my journey to reclaim my curl pattern. I’ve been natural for almost 7 years, but excessive heat use and curl abuse has robbed me of a consistent curl pattern.

This picture was taken @ my birthday party. I had a fabulous time! I refreshed my twist out the night before with GF Sleek and Shine leave in conditioner, retwisted, sealed with Shea Butter and rolled for a dry twist out. I also co-washed last with Trader Joe’s Nourish Spa conditioner, I like it.

Show and Tell-- The Christmas EditionStephanie:

I have been natural for about six years now. I’ve been wearing my hair flat ironed on a regular basis. I finally decided to try something new and keep the heat away from my hair. All I have to say is….LOVING IT. This was my first twist out. We were on our way to church and we stopped at the gas station when I snagged this pic (this explains my husband in the background making a funny face at our two year old). I have gotten so many compliments and I feel “healthier” with my hair like this!

Show and Tell-- The Christmas EditionShow and Tell-- The Christmas EditionI took my two day old twists out and pinned the top in a criss cross fashion. Got lots of compliments and it kept my hair out of my face!

Date Night!!!!! We were both done with school for the semester and my attending gave me a gift certificate to a local Indian restaurant… So I asked him out on a date (check yes or no) and we ended up getting dolled up for the evening. This is a 3 day old twist out- lots of frizz and very little definition of my curls at the ends but nonetheless… gotta make it work (and my hubby gave me many compliments… or is that mandatory on date night?).

This is a picture of my first Faux/Fro Hawk and the first style I’ve EVER loved with my natural hair. My total attitude changed when I left my stylist’s shop! I was on my way to church in this pic and HAD to get some documented proof of how fly my natural hair can be! Love your site and thanks for giving all of us curlies, coilys, twisties and nappies some shine!

Here is a pic of me and the husband from my holiday party. Due to concern about my ends, I have been wearing two strand twists for weeks. I rolled the ends this time(per your example) and untwisted. I pulled the side back and secured with IC gel and bobby pins! Wal-la!

    Loving Courtney's and Mary's style

  • Stephanie says:

    Thank you Ladies for the compliments!

    For the first picture (sitting in car) I washed and conditioned my hair with the Herbal Essence Totally Twisted products. I didn't keep the conditioner in. I twisted my hair (about 20 twists) with glycerin/water mix and coconut oil.

    The second and third pics I co-washed my hair with the same conditioner and left a lot of the conditioner in my hair. I put the same amount of twists in and also used the coconut oil, but I sealed the ends with 100% shea butter. The conditioner and the shea butter is what really helped there to be more curl definition. Hope this helps!

    All the styles looked great. I especially liked the “wash n go" puff and the "Fro Hawk". Happy Holidays!
