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:

Daddy’s girl…
Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!

This pic was taken in my office at work after trying a new product (Shea Moisture) for my twist out. I used my fav Eco Styler Gel on the edges and pulled it up with a band! This was one of my best results!!! I received so many compliments that day! Happy Friday everyone!!!

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!Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!

I’m a Senegalese natural and I love your blog! This week (Sept 15), I celebrated my one year nappiversary and I wanted to share my joy with all of my natural sisters!
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.
Be blessed!Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!

This is my pump with a braid-out. I was headed out of town to visit family!Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!

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.Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!

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!Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!

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.Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!

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!

That’s when I came across the braid-out! This pic is me (& my sister) in Ibiza on Sept 3rd 2010 out for a fun night with my girls. Its not hugely clear, but basically, the shadow around my head – that’s my ‘Fro πŸ™‚ The braid-out is 2 days old, it wasn’t that good, it was my 1st attempt, I had all the wrong products, but I salvaged it with a head scarf and big earrings! πŸ™‚ and fluffing up of course!Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!

**If you don’t see yourself today, rest assured that you’ll be up in the coming weeks! I post in the order I receive them!**

**To submit**:

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 I’ll post several each Friday. Be sure to use ‘Fierce Friday’ as the subject line!
We need more for next week!

    Wow these styles give inspiration They're all Lovely! Baby Gia has beautiful curls. @Lacharo- Were those small twists? and how long did you leave them in before unraveling? How long did your twist out bun last?

    @Sharonda your waves are amazing.
    @Cassandra your mohawk is fierce.
    @Junie I'm loving the flat twist with the twist out style.

    Inspiration!! This makes me want to try a new style.
