Hi Nikki,
I am an author, blogger, hiv/aids advocate, speaker from chicago, Illinois. I am a huge fan of your site. I have been natural for 5 years and I still learn so much about natural hair care from your blog everyday. This is a pic that I took with my blackberry on the day of a photo shoot. I wanted a cornrowed mohawk, but my head is to big to compliment that style…lol so, I put a few corn rows on one side and blow dried my hair straight, then added some flexi rods to give me some curls….I hope you like it…

I am nine months into my transition to natural. In this picture I am getting ready for work. My style is a twist out on wet hair. Products used were Design Essentials leave-in Conditioner, sealed with unrefined shea butter/coconut oil mix (small amount) and Miss Jessie’s BabyButterCream. The twists were set with small perm rods.Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!

This picture was taken on May 13th at the Grand Canyon, while on vacation in Las Vegas. My hair is in a braid out. I co-washed using Darcy’s Botanicals Pumpkin Seed Moisturizer and steamed for 40 minutes with Jessicurl Weekly Deep Conditioning Treatment. I used Darcy’s New Daily Leave-in Conditioner and air dried for 40 minutes. I applied Darcy’s Coconut Lemongrass Transitioning Creme and Darcy’s Madagascar Vanilla Styling Creme, and made 10 braids. I then applied Darcy’s Juicy Peach Kernel Nectar Oil to my ends, air dried overnight and unbraided the next morning.
