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 pic was taken on a Friday morning in May, 2010, Trinidad, before heading to work. I was actually holding my niece who was born a few days from the actual photo date. The hairstyle is flat twist, horizontal and diagonal on one side with shake n go curls. Hair was washed and treated with Miss Jessie’s Curly Pudding and a little styling gel.
Hi, Nikki. Thanks to you, I loved this 2nd day chunky twist out. Instead of using my usual heavy leave in, I tried Yes to Carrots conditioner. I sealed with Burt’s Bees Lemon and Vitamin E Oil. It has just enough wheat germ oil and helps to keep my curls fluffy. 😀
Here’s a pic of my “post-night out” hair while visiting a friend in Atlanta. In preparation for the trip I had the sides braided. Then I did a light blowout on top and about nine twists using Qhemet Biologics Amla & Olive Heavy Cream and a little Jane Carter Nourish & Shine. The next morning I unraveled the twists and did a simple pin-up. These are the best results I’ve had with hair experimentation so far!
My niece and I decided to do a 1920s/1930s photo shoot together. She is 21 and I am 31. I’ve struggled back and forth between being relaxed and natural for about 5 years now, and I must truly say I know for a fact that returning to my natural state was the best decision for me. Plus 30 not looking too shabby either!
I absolutely love your blog! I rollerset my hair to stretch it, then on dry hair did Bantu Knots that I unraveled the next day to get the results below 🙂
In this picture I was at lunch one Saturday with my family. That was my first time doing yarn braids and I was in love with them. I twisted the front and tucked it into a high pony. I felt so confident that day. Thanks for this heaven-sent site and congrats!!!!
Chopped my hair myself 2 weeks ago after taking out my braids. I wore a wig for a couple of days but it’s too hot for that. The other days I wore a hat. Today is the first day I am wearing my fro to work. I’m not sure how corporate America feels about natural hair but I’m embracing it. Thanks for the blog and all the tips.
This is my first braid out since I BC’d in May. It’s a little frizzier than I wanted but overall I LOVED the look. I was headed to work feeling EXTRA fierce with my curly fro!!
I was at work rocking my usual wash n go.
