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!

Curly Nikki- Gia
Stinkmeaner (as hubby affectionately refers to her) is getting browner and curlier by the day! She is so THE BOSS of this house– you know the kind of sleep you manage on an airplane? That’s all we’re getting around these parts… no REM for mamma.

Your blog is such an inspiration to me, this is my 3rd time natural and I’m doing it right thanks to you. This was at a beach party in Jamaica. It’s been 5 months since my BC! I braided the sides to get a kinda “lean to one side” mohawk and wash and go’ed the top and back with some Curl Junkie Assurance Gellie.

This is me on my birthday getting a pedicure. I don’t know how “fierce” this ‘do is, but I had such a great day w/my mom & sister! I had set my hair on Olivia Garden rods but the curls were way too tight (I’ll use larger rods next time). I used a narrow flat iron I got w/my Maxi glide to randomly straighten the roots a bit & slapped on my “go to” headband, lol. I’d used some Noodle Head styling cream & HE mousse to do the set. I’m so clueless–still finding my way!

Just got to work and felt fly.

I know it has been a while since me being featured and wOwZeRs my hair has grown beautifully!!

I just did a twist-out and pinned the back up. It was very hot that day, lol!


I love to wear my hair pinned up in this style because it’s an all purpose ‘do. As you can see here, I can wear it to the beach, get it wet, and it will dry the exact same way. I can spice it up by adding a hair accessory and wear it for a night out! With a style like this one, you get a lot of options and wear (I usually keep it pinned this way for about a week – the older it gets, my curls begin to develop a different look), all with low maintenance!
This was a 2nd day Braid-Out and I had no issues with it at all. I was so pleased with my hair, being that I’m still trying to master the Art of Braid-Outs! The weather was beautiful, with a nice summer breeze, a beautiful day with my family at the park, and a day of truly feeling my hair!!! What else could a girl ask for?!!!

This style was done on 3rd day hair that I wet with HE Hello Hydration, JBCO and
water in a spray bottle. This is a variation of a hairstyle from Ria
(SumKindaWndrful) a YouTube’r. Instead of french braids (I tried… did not
look good!) I flat twisted the front and TNC’d the rest and set it on Perm
rods. I think it came out really cute. I got compliments all day! I was on my
way to a family cookout and I added my own handmade accessory and VIOLA!
On my way to work with my twist-out. Some shea butter and Jane Carter Leave-In conditioner and I am ready to go.

At my cousin’s birthday party at the Butterfly Sushi Lounge in Chicago. My hair is in a chunky twist-out with the front rolled under slightly and pinned to the side in a thick loose twist. Fun night!

I just wanted to tell you THANK YOU! You have opened my eyes to a brand new world (I only wish it were sooner). I have been naturally curly since 1998. Before that I was a slave to the relaxer. My Puerto Rican mother, God rest her soul, who had hair for days, had no idea what to do with my half African American half Puerto Rican hair, but to relax it, starting about when I was four. From that point on I continued the process, until I became pregnant with my son. He was an August baby and it was way too hot and I was way too big to go and get my hair done, so I started to do wet-n-go’s. I liked it! I liked the way my hair looked, I loved the low maintenance, and the extra money (minus the cost of the salon) in my pocket. The thing is from that point on and until now, (when I found Curly Nikki), I never took care of my hair. It never grew past shoulder length and it broke off a lot. But your website has helped me accomplish so much. I have only been a follower since about July 2010, but I have already used so many of your tips and have seen my hair improve greatly! Once again THANK YOU! The pic is of a Bantu Knot-Out. You can see on my ends where Henna has changed my previous chemical color.
