Show and Tell- Fierce Fridays

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!

On my way home from church– Two Strand Flat Twist Updo with a Bantu Knot out made into a side swept bang. Inspired by Tiashauntee and Mahogneyknots. I wore my bangs 3 different ways!

Getting ready for work. Twist out faux hawk done on wet hair using shea butter/olive oil and aloe vera gel. I let the twists air dry overnight then took them down in the A.M. Thanks Nikki for being my hair guru when I was so lost!Show and Tell- Fierce Fridays

This photo was taken right outside of my job…I get great sunlight and I like to see how
my hair shines in the light. This style is the result of taking out Bantu-Knots– my staple
style. I’m only 3 ½ months into my transition, but I hope to achieve great curl definition
like this once I’m completely natural.

I decided to do a spiral set yesterday. I used Jane Carter Wrap and Roll Foam wrap and sat under a hooded dryer. I know I have been MIA on YouTube but I am just taking time off visiting family and friends. I have been overseas for the past 3 years and I am trying to catch up with everyone. I will start making more videos as soon as I get settled in my new place. I would like thank everyone for their support and nice comments. Thank you!Show and Tell- Fierce Fridays

This is a picture of a twist out I did. I was headed to a girls night out on the town. I simply co-washed with my Aussie Moist and used Giovanni’s Leave-In Conditioner. I used Eco-styler gel to style and let it air dry overnight. In the morning I took them down, and put in a flower my grandma had laying around using a bobby pin to hold it in. Great cheap way to accessorize 🙂 Show and Tell- Fierce Fridays

Hi Nikki! I’m wearing mini twists that I did on blow dried hair. I used shea butter on my hair to provide softness and seal in the moisture. In this photo I was on my way to run errands and then meet with friends. Show and Tell- Fierce Fridays

This was my look for my engagement photo shoot! One of my natural friends flat twisted a section of the front of my hair, then 2-strand twisted the rest. The twists were then rolled using super small perm rods. Its my mini version of a twist n curl!!!Show and Tell- Fierce Fridays
I was at a lounge in DC with friends. This was my first time stepping out since I did the Big Chop a month ago and I was SO self conscious and nervous (I’ve always been BSL). Thank you for the plethora of information available on your site that helped me figure out what the heck was going on. God bless you!!Show and Tell- Fierce Fridays

This was a fresh twist out I did using Curls Whipped Cream. I kept it simple with a flower accessory and slicked down my baby hairs. I rocked this look at dinner later on that night to an Italian restaurant, yummy!! 🙂
