It’s that time again! The images below are of CN readers at their flyyest…at work, on the town, and with the fam. Showing us all that natural hair is not a fad, it’s a way of life…an extension of our beauty! Click on the images to enlarge them:
My name is Janelle and I am currently residing in Chapel Hill, NC. I am new to your forum and I am glad for a community such as this. In this picture, I just did a quick touch up before I went back out to beat faces at the MAC counter! I had a 2 strand twist/Bantu knot out! I am still experimenting with styles while I am transitioning. I visit this forum everyday to keep me motivated.
Here’s a picture of me at my law school graduation last weekend. I did a braidout on dry hair using Shea Moisture hair milk and coconut oil, then curled the ends with straws. Even though it rained on and off throughout the day, my hair made it through just fine.
I was on my way to see Dr Maya Angelou speak at Fairley Dickenson University in Hackensack NJ! So you know my hair had to be tight! This look was the result of my all time favorite twist out! I used Koils By Nature Citrus Bliss Nourishing Hair & Body Butter and Herbal Hair gel in Lavendar and Eucalyptus. My twist were in for 4 days and then I did the twist out. My twists were small so I only had to take the twists apart and fluff! I was so very happy with the results. I couldn’t keep up with compliments and questions! I love my Sasha (my hair).
I was actually in the car, in between running errands in this pic.
This twist-out is the result of yet another set of mini-twists. I left the twists in for about a week and took them out for this look.
When I did my twists (which I did on wet/damp hair this time) I used my mix of shea butter and coconut oil for each twist. I actually wore them pinned up the whole week. As I took them down, I separated each one into another 1 or 2 sections. This is the result.
The Friday before Mother’s Day, I did a Twist-n-Curl for our first family photo. I washed with Aussie Moist Moisturizing Shampoo and followed up with an Aphogee 2-Minute Reconstructor Treatment. Next I deep treated with Aussie 3-Minute Miracle Deep Conditioner. I then applied Garnier Fructis Sleek n Shine Conditioner to wet hair before I got out of the shower. I twisted using a cocoshea mix on the ends. I did 3-strand twists for a little added body and set the ends on McDonald’s drinking straws.
Wilona the fro is back! I was headed out on the town with friends with a simple bantu knot out. Congrats on a baby curlie btw!! **clapping my hands and jumping up and down**
This is my version of the Braid ‘N Curl, since twists don’t hold well
on my transitioning hair. And I jazzed it up with a flower headband. I
was at my cousin’s birthday party.

My Curly Fro!

This is my little curly guy and I at a very good friend’s wedding reception. He was ready to play, but I had to snatch him up so I could get 1 good picture for the night. This hairstyle is the “cinna-bun” tutorial that was shown on CN a few weeks ago! I stretched hair using banding with KCKT and jojoba oil. I then used the KMS stick and a little IC styling gel to smooth edges, and Miss Jessies Curly Buttercreme to give the ‘bun’ a smooth finish. It turned out perfectly…I got so many complements! And, I did it while I was getting a pedicure! Little guys hair is a day old wash n’go finished with Giovanni Direct Leave-in. The next day I sprayed him with my glycerin/water mix and added a little MJCB to give it a little sheen.
**If you don’t see yourself today, rest assured that you’ll be up in the coming weeks! I post in the order I receive them!**
