My daughter and I on our way to our family reunion. I’m wearing a twist-out and my daughter Akilah is wearing twists. Everyone loved our hair! I think that was the best twist-out I’ve had so far!Show and Tell- Fierce FridaysAlign Center

I set my hair in two strand twists, shown here five days later and still defined curls! Thanks to πŸ™‚

Hi CN! Here I am going to the Ladies of Athena Fitness and Nutrition gathering with my twist out. I love hair flowers and headbands, so I’m rarely without them!

My fiancΓ© is an amateur photographer and he snapped this pic of me in my condo. I henna my hair every 4 – 6 weeks and the style is a curly twist out. I spritzed my hair with aloe vera gel and water, applied Qhemet’s Amla Heavy Cream moisturizer and sealed with castor oil. I then twisted my hair rolled it up with flex rods slept on it overnight (on a satin pillowcase) fluffed and separated in the morning.

I was at my Nana’s house getting ready to hit Manhattan. I’m sporting bantu knot outs. I did this on dry hair and applied a little cantu shea butter to my hair and let it air dry. I love my natural hair!

My last perm was in October 2009 and I’ve been transitioning ever since.
This is a picture of me before going out on a date with my boyfriend. He’s been encouraging me to go natural for the full four years we’ve been dating and I’m glad I finally took the plunge. He’s been very supportive.
I did a braid out with a mix of 100% Shea butter, veggie glycerin, water, and lavender essential oil. I added the cute flower because, well, it was a date! This is my signature style as I go through my transition.Show and Tell- Fierce Fridays

I think I’ve finally found a routine that works! I just hennaed yesterday (using your technique, thanks!), DT’ed with Carol’s Daughter Hair Smoothie and conditioner washed with Suave Almond & Shea Butter (LOVE IT). Since I was going to meet the husband and wanted to look cute, I raked in Kinky-Curly Curling Custard. This is actually 2nd day hair…all I did this morning was fluff and go!

I LOOOOOVE being natural, did a big chop at my hubby’s prompting in 1995 and haven’t looked back since. It’s been a journey but I’m enjoying my hair more than I ever did when it was relaxed. The best thing about this is now my 70-year old beautiful Mom is going natural too! πŸ™‚
My hubby took this picture of me in NYC on our way to see Fela on Broadway. Proud to say the bag I’m rocking was designed and made by yours truly.

First let me say that I love your blog, and read it daily! I snapped this photo of myself when I came in from a gig singing with my jazz band. I was pleased at how well my three strand twist out held out after four sets of big band dance music! I used Giovanni Direct Leave-In and Afroveda Shea Amla on my twists…

On my way to church. This is after a twist out. I washed and conditioned/detangled with Pantene for Natural & Relaxed Hair (brown bottles) and used IC leave in conditioner, twisted & let air dry.Show and Tell- Fierce Fridays
