Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!

By January 27th, 202120 Comments

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!
Click on the images to enlarge them:


I was a hostess in one of my girls’s weddings this summer. I wanted to do a twist out, but the humidity wasn’t having it. I opted to simply pin up the back and add a little bump in the front. I added a flower, and WA LA!! Compliments like crazy!!!

Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!
This is a favorite hairstyle of mine when I want to look cute but casual in a short period of time. I used mixed chicks hair products to define my curls as I tossed it to the side to create this look. I was headed out to dinner with my significant other.
Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!

This is my first time trying the styles on your website. I’ve been natural for 4 yrs, and I recently combed out my dreads. This hairstyle is a result of a twist out that is about 5 days old. I am currently at work in the picture. I love your site and the wonderful information on there. Even though I’m still a newbie and experimenting, I love my results. Keep up the good work.
Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!
My labor day weekend, night out hair. I had not been to a club in over a year and was wondering how the brothas would react. To my surprise, I got approached by so many BLACK men asking me if that was “all my hair”, and when I told them it was, every last one told me how beautiful it was and how “natural hair looks good on you”, and several tried to put their sweaty hands in it to cop a feel… I know, I know, that’s a weird compliment to receive, but to me, I think it means that our men are noticing and starting to recognize the beauty of natural hair…. and even better, it was a quick, flyy ‘do that I’m sure took less time than the average chick in the club… fresh twist-out with Vatika Oil, fluffed and finished with Oyin Shine and Define 30 minutes before walking out the door… from rough, past-due twists that I had in my hair all week prior!Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!

This is a frohawk style with a swooped bang, done on an old twistout. I spritzed my hay hair with a mix of Aloe Vera Juice, KC Knot today, and EVOO. Sealed with coconut oil. I was on my way to a picnic.Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!

This is a picture I took while I was visiting AL for the week. I love how my wash and go’s can be funky and fun. I love being natural. Hope you all have had an awesome week…
Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!

Out on the town for a friend’s birthday! I’m rocking a curly fro I created by finger coiling my wet, conditioner-saturated hair with my fingers into corkscrews/ spirals, letting it dry, then gently separating them. I added a pretty flower to tie into my outfit! Love your blog…it’s the 1st site I check everyday! Congrats on babygirl!Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!
This picture was taken right after my big chop 9/4/10. My hair was already short so I just went ahead and cut it off. I was against letting my hair grow out; I hate the in between stage. It feels so wonderful. Loving the natural state of me. Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!

Out celebrating a fellow Leo’s birthday. I rocked two strand twists for two weeks… I was rocking a twist out that night!Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!

I was trying out some of the popular Bee Mine products on a wash n’ go. I wasn’t going anywhere at all…lol. I used the Bee Mine Curly Butter & the Bee Loved Hair & Scalp Moisturizer right after my hair dried a little. For my edges, I used just a little bit of Eco-Styler Gel.Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!

    Hey this is Mallorie, and thanks for all the great compliments 🙂 My mom actually cut my hair and I'm loving it… just a layered look. I also think my hair is just growing out like that, grows slower on top than the bottom.

    At first I got my vatika oil from, probably from the same link as anonymous… but luckilly, I was able to find some at an Indian grocery store. Apparently, it is very popular with Indian women according to the clerk.

    Lastly, in response to the young lady whom I feel took my comment way too far, she totally missed the entire point. That was the most minor comment in there. I swear, we are always digging for the negative. I was not comparing myself to anyone or saying that my hair was better. But like the young lady said after you, there is a misconception that it must take forever to do natural hair… that we must have to yank and pull and take all day to do it. That we just "need to put a perm in it". People assume that our hair is more difficult… my point was that my hair had been in some rusty twists all week. Same day my girl was like Mal we have to go to this party but it starts in 2 hrs…so instead of freaking out… took the twists out and got a lovely creation that looked flyy that night and could wear the rest of the week. Part of the beauty and versatility of natural hair. Seriously, I swore that this was a blog where natural and transitioning or just women who appreciate natural hair could speak freely without disrespect. For your information, I have a lovely wig, my Outre Evony that I could have turned to… I have even worn my hair straight on many occassions… but I'm sure we all can vouch for this: There is nothing like being in the club and not having to worry about "is my wig gonna fall off if I shake it like this"… "is someone going to be dancing too hard and accidently pull out one of my tracks"… "is my hair gonna be sweated out by the end of the night"…"wth am I gonna do with it for church"… since I went natural, and like the night mentioned in my post, I didn't have to worry about any of that. There was a freedom that I did not have when I was relaxed, pressed, weaved or wigged. Yes… all of us should DO US… and do it with confidence. Luckilly for me and all of the natural/transitioning/natural-loving ladies out there, the point of my post overall is that our Black men are coming around and appreciating our hair the way it is. And as far as hair length about my hair being mine… girl, I have been through all the stages… I big chopped, had a forever twa… in between… and still have a ways to go before reaching my goal, but I have been through it all, and patience is the name of the game. I have put in work caring for my hair… so EXCUSE me for voicing the additional validation I received from our men for just being me and rocking what God gave me because I am use to being overlooked for the girl with the long weave etc (who is doing her well). Ladies, continue to DO YOU, and it will be recognized… most importantly

    I love everyone's hair! I am still envious of the creativity I see each week since I'm still wearing a WNG. lol Hoping your photos will provide the necessary inspiration to try something new. Thanks for sharing with us!

    @Sabrina: I am not Mallorie but I bought a 4 pack of Vatika Oil on Amazon:

  • Shawntal says:

    @YaniraNaturally- Niko's cousin…checkin' in! 🙂

  • Sabrina says:

    Wow all the ladies hair are on point and I will definitely try some of those styles. Mallorie where did you buy the Vatika Oil, because I went to 4 different BSS in Savannah and Garden CIty,GA trying to find this stuff. Do you have to order this online only or something? Santana your hair came out gorgeous, and that black is calling me to dye my hair a nice rich jet black. Dreamchazer you look gorgeous from head to toe, I am digging the whole look that you have going on, and the flower attachment really brought out everything.

    Where's Baby Gia this week? She is so adorable!

    Hats off to all the Friday ladies. Their hairstyles (versatility) is inspirational!

    With that said, I am sooo disappointed! It's Friday and while I look forward to seeing the Friday ladies in their fierce natural manes, I also look forward to seeing Baby G! Where is she?

    @ohsheila4u, in other situations, i might be inclined to agree with you, however this doesn't seem like the right post at the right time.

    and really, you are just doing what the texlaxed lady was doing… inserting your own Inference as a truth. Mallorie may have just made that comment to dispell the misconception that natural hair takes too long to look good vs. straight hair styles. nowhere in her blurb did i infer that she was putting other people down or comparing herself to others. she may have just been trying to prompt naturals to not be afraid of wearing curly styles when going out for a special occasion, a fear she may have had to overcome to go out that night. and it paid off; she and all the other ladies look beautiful.

    This is what the girl with the texturizer was talking about, "…it was a quick, flyy 'do that I'm sure took less time than the average chick in the club…". All the dudes were on you yet you’re still thinking about the next "average" chick. (Let me guess the average chick has a relaxer, lace front, or a weave) DO YOU!!!!! Even though they are average you still took the time to write and worry about how long it must have taken them to style their hair.  look how silly that is in black and white. DO YOU!!!! Would it be fair for one to say, Oh guys only talk to the wack chick in the club because she will be willing to converse? And guys don’t approach the fly chick because she will shut’em down. Not cool, agreed?
    My point: we do not need to douse another's fire to let our light shine. When will we big up ourselves without pulling someone else down??
    Our issues are bigger than a big chop and curl pattern: If we aren’t envying the girl with the weave that has all the guys sweating her (and yes he knows it’s fake), we’re envying the girl that has the bigger puff or the thicker, shinier, curly fro, or knocking down the Henna’d girl bc it’s known to loosen the curl.
    Nik, with your psychotherapist background and what you have observed in life thus far, maybe you can explain why we are always set to put the next chick down to feel good (watching Nikki close her laptop and back away slowly…, lol). All jokes aside this is a touchy topic but needs to be addressed.
    And before someone says she must have “creamy crack” or anything ignorant, I too am natural. To the texlaxed poster if you still come here after having your $ handed to you yes, hair snobbery does exist amongst some that contribute; not the site/Nikki. Not trying to rouse a riot folks; I look forward to Fierce Fridays, it’s one of my faves.
    Anyhow, everyone looks FAB, LOVE, LOVE, LOVE your site Nik keep up the good work.
    Stay Blessed.

    CurlyNikki, I want you to know that I hold you and pretty pictures from people like Santana (pictured above) totally accountable for my decision to try BeeMine products. I saw BeeMine in your product list on this site, and people have nothing but good things to say about it. So here I go! I really want a nice emulsified moisturizer, so I'm going to give theirs a try! Thanks!
