Hola chicas!

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!

This is me chillin’ at my moms. I did a twist out on wet hair, let it dry overnight and separated and fluffed the next day. I parted it on the right side (during the twisting) to add edge to the style. I recently started a Henna challenge *YAY*. I’m looking forward to sharing the results…:) LOVE THE SITE NIKKI!!!!
I love your site and the wisdom you share concerning our kinky, coily, curly tresses! On this particular picture I was on my way to church! I have been natural for 5 years and this is the best flat twist out I’ve ever done…..I used Afroveda’s products (which I love!!) 😉

It has been one year and three months since I big chopped. This pic was taken on my way to the Erykah Badu and Maxwell concert @ Philips Arena. I did a pompadour in the front, a puff in the back, and a flower from Sarenzo Beads on the side.

I’m natural underneath this weave– I’m just in protective style mode for the summer. What I did was a chunky twist out all over including my hair that is out in the front using some ecostyler and a little oil.

Hairstyle worn to the DMV Curly Nikki Meet-Up. Twisted each side to the middle to create a curly mohawk.

Putting in my photo for Fierce Friday!
Just me at home in front of a new chocolate colored wall that I adore. My fav incense is peaking out in the background. 🙂

I have followed your blog for several months now. Your site has truly been helpful when trying to come up with a regimen for maintaining daily moisture and of course the henna. I have henna’ed my hair twice in the past month. I love the color of my hair as well as the shine.
This is my hair 6 weeks after my BC. I transitioned for 8 months with wigs and braids. In this picture, I am on my way to work. My style is an Afro puff from a braid out 3 days prior. Products used were Vatika Coconut Oil and Miss Jessie’s Baby ButterCream. I wrapped the belt from my sweater around my head to create the afro puff. This is the day that I truly loved my hair.

Hi CN family! Here’s a pic from our law school “pre-graduation” party! Beforehand, I dampened my hair, applied a little shea and castor oil for curl pop and flat twisted the sides.

This is the first time I’ve worn my hair out in a while. I did a flexi rod set , let them dry under the hood dryer for approximately 2 hours, took out the flexi rods and pinned curled before bed. The next morning, I took out my pin curls and separated them curl by curl. It was a lot of work, but definitely worth the beautiful results!


I’ve been a faithful (everyday if not multiple times a day) visitor to your blog for nearly a year. Although I’ve never had a perm I had a lot of issues embracing my natural curls and began killing my hair with a flat iron as soon as I could. A friend directed me to your site and to keep it short I was inspired, encouraged and supported to love my hair. I’m not totally in love but the closest I have ever been.

This is a professional pic of me and my natural locks with just a bit of 100% shea butter. I typically use Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose Conditoner…love it! I hope you enjoy 🙂
