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’m trying to rock a messy bun after a week of wearing a Twist Out (however I couldn’t get it as high as yours)… on my way to work. I think it looks pretty cool.
Fresh from the salon on Labor Day weekend! This was my first braided mohawk.
This is me showing off my proud Afro puff on Sept 10th 2010. I am so loving my hair journey again for the second time around! My Big Chop was done in December 2009 (from tex-lax). I co-wash with Paul Mitchell Generic Brand Tea Tree Oil, Lavender Conditioner from Sallys. Then I use my coconut/shea/castor oil leave in, along with Eco Styler gel to define curls, brushed with a soft boars head brush and put into a puff using a Goody’s elastic band.
In this picture, I was off to work. I applied Smooth n Shine Polishing Curl Activator Gel throughout my hair. I thought I was looking kind of fly, so I took a picture. I call myself Mz. PurpleRain in this one!
As you can see, it’s just an afro and the products used are African Pride Hair and Scalp Spray (leave in), Motions Oil Moisturizer (the new one) and my Shea Butter mix.
I LOVE your site. It has helped me so much with my hair.
I took this picture after my interview. I was a little nervous, but I was really happy with my hair. I did a twist-out on dry hair, and I put a bobby pin in the front to create the shape I wanted.
This my twist-out style; I flat twist one side and two strand twist the other. I was so feeling myself with this style and I was on my way out of town to be with friends!
I was rocking a wash and go in this pic. I used Aussie Moist to co-wash and then massaged in a little Cantu Shea Butter leave-in…and I was on my way to work.
I’m new to your site, found it by accident, wasn’t even looking to transition, just tips for holiday hair so I could swim and not have my holiday/eve’s ruined by having to spend over an hour straightening my hair!
Send in your favorite picture with a caption detailing where you were (or where you were headed to), along with a brief description of your hairstyle, to firstname.lastname@example.org. I’ll post several each Friday. Be sure to use ‘Fierce Friday’ as the subject line!
