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:
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!
I set my hair in two strand twists, shown here five days later and still defined curls! Thanks to CurlyNikki.com 🙂
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 fiancé 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.
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!
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.
