I just love reading your blog. I have never emailed before, I’m usually just a lurker, but I liked my curl pattern today after washing it last night and just using a mixture of coconut oil/lemongrass shea butter & B2 Broaer Curl Miracle.

It is very soft and I’m happy to show and tell today!

For the new decade I am flaunting my natural curls. I achieved my first stretched bantu knot-out. I did very small knots to achieve a roller set look.

I was being lazy, so I did a wash n go and slapped a few braids on the side.

I did these twists on blow-dried hair. It took 4 hours to complete and I am in love with the end result. I explain FULLY how I did this here: I plan to leave these in for 2-3 weeks, if I can!! 🙂

This is me at my department’s holiday party. I have my hair in a twist out and I lifted my hair in a claw clip. I received many compliments that day 😀 Natural hair rocks!!!

Queen’s Braid-n-Curl!

Here I am at my uncle’s Christmas party. On dry hair I sprayed my mix of VO5 and mostly water braided about six plaits. I applied Shea butter to my ends and put curl formers in. I sat under the dryer for about a hour. This was one of my BEST braid outs.

    Its so nice to see that so many of us are proud to wear our natural hair. i have been natural since September 2007. being natural in Belize is rough( hot weather 365, and lack of variety of proper haircare products) its been work. about 2 wks ago i was desperate for info on how to care for my hair, so i began searching the web, an like a ray of sunshine(seriously… it was a awwwhhh moment!!!)i found this site and after seeing and reading everything, i was saved. so armed with the new found love for my hair and a few choiced hair products proceeded to twist my hair. the results have been amazing!! its like evryone can sense that i put love into my hair. Thanks to all of you on curlynikki.

    Annonymous 7:10, I've had the same thing happen. I'm so used to looking at natural hair that old pics of me with straight hair seem strange. I look at people with weaves and relaxers and think about how much prettier they'd look with their natural unique texture.

    Gorgeous hair ladies! It is getting so hard for me to look at flat, straight hair on a background of rich toned skin and not have it seem odd on my mind. I have inundated my brain with images of natural haired curlies over the past several months, so I think this has something to do with it. Anyone else having or had this experience? It is really strange and what it confirms to me is that images are SO important to mental imprinting. Regardless of age, it is possible to change your reference by looking at the right thing.:) Just gotta KEEP LOOKING over and over amd over . . .
