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:
This picture is me (on the left) and my sister (right) at our little brother’s birthday party. This is my twist out after 2 weeks of wearing small, curled two strand twists. My sister has dreads. This was the first time my family saw my natural hair out of box braids (that I had been wearing for years), and they all loved it!
This picture is from my second twist/bantu knot out- – I had just taken my twists out and fluffed my hair. I’m still learning and I am having fun in the process.
This is me at home getting ready to meet a few friends for dinner. This is my wash n go- – I applied Darcys Botanicals daily leave in and Darcy’s Coiling Jelly on top, then I shook for added fluff. I am 6 months post BC in this pic.
This is me chaperoning the Prom. I achieved this flat twist-out by co-washing with HE Hello Hydration, and deep conditioning with Aubrey Organic Honey Suckle Rose. I used Kinky Curly Knot Today as my leave-in and I also used Kinky Curly Curling Custard to help achieve these results.
Hi Nikki, I have been following your blog for about 3-4 months now as I transition. This picture is of me visiting Los Angeles and hanging out with my 6 month old son (as I do most Fridays….but I’m still FIERCE)!! This picture is a day old Twist n Curl, cowashed with HE Hello Hydration and I used Cantu Shea Butter and Miss Jessie’s Curly Merengue to style.
I attempted my first perm rod set on my natural hair which ended up being an epic failure, lol. However, I managed to salvage the style and make lemonade out of lemons. In this picture I was at work on my lunch break having a photoshoot in the car. I have knots in the front and a defined puff in the back with some enhanced curls left over from the rod set.
This picture is my hair two days after my Big Chop. It was a simple wash and go with just a little product. I was on my way to a family gathering, rather nervous about everyone’s reactions, but I got great feedback! I used Aubrey Organics Jojoba conditioner(GREAT!) with almond oil. I really love my TWA, my dad was totally against this at first but now it seems to be growing on him! Thanks for producing this site as a great source for new naturals like me.
Me taking random pics, I had a braid out, pinned to the side. Schools out, nowhere to go! Lol!
This is my first successful braid out. I braided an old twist out using Qhemet’s Cocoa Tree Detangling Ghee. I wore the braids for 3 days. I love the definition. Unfortunately, the style only lasted one day. My gym workout and the humidity puffed it up. LOL!!
Here is a picture of my soRhors and me (in the purple dress) at a DC Greek picnic. We looked around and realized we were all natural and decided for a photo opp. 4 of the ladies have locks, I have finger coils in, and the chica in the yellow w/the yellow rose is rocking a wash and go.
