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 had just taken down some twists I had in for a month and was happy to have my fro back. This was after a deep condition with Giovanni Deep Conditioner, honey, and olive oil. I moisturized with Dessert Essentials Coconut Conditioner and styled with aloe vera gel and castor oil. OMGsh it’s SOOOOO soft, I can’t keep my hands out! As I type this, I’m fluffing and petting it like it’s a house pet, lol.
I wet set my hair on ¾ inch rollers (using B&B moist foam wrap & Tresemmé Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray) and sat under a hooded dryer. Once dry, I pulled each curl apart using Oyin’s Burnt Sugar Pomade. SIMPLE & CHIC!
I’m done transitioning and just LOVE IT! Right now I’m doing twist-outs with Olive Oil Hair Lotion…also doing the no-shampoo thing. It is really strengthening my hair. For my conditioner I use Pantene Relaxed and Natural but I also love to use the Olive Oil conditioner…the two BEST for me.
I was about to go to the bar with my friends & decided to just wear my hair “out”. I created my own ‘stretching technique for the lazy, where I just brushed my hair into a high bun after co-washing & taking the bun down after a few hours. Then I sprayed it with my trusty S-curl spray (it’s amazing). I slid on a skinny headband, fluffed, and headed out the door. Many men were touching my hair last night. I call it the man catcher 😉
On my way to work. Two weeks post BC.
I am on my way to work and feeling pretty hot. This is a coil-out post morning shower. It’s dry in this picture. I really love the shape and the way my hair is catching the light. My lipstick is a mix of lip pencil and a clear red gloss. Fun.

I know you can relate, the humidity was driving me nuts and my hair was fuzz city. Wanting my hair up and off my neck…I did a semi-French braid (because I can really cornrow) pinned the braid under, smoothed with shea butter and rosemary oil, slept overnight be-scrafed, added combs in the morning, and then heigh-ho, heigh-ho, it’s off to work I go!
Webcam photo before a dinner night. Styled my hair with Olive oil & Eco styler gel.
Out on the town with a wash & go and an ouchless headband. I used Mixed Chicks, sat under the dryer for 8 to 10 minutes and diffused the rest to create the volume that I sooo love.
My daughter Ja’Naya was diagnosed with leukemia in January, and by June, she had lost all her hair due to chemo. I submitted a photo for Show & Tell last year when she still had a HUGE head of hair ( http://www.curlynikki.com/
The photo of me is from a photo shoot I did last month. I won the shoot in a blogging contest, and it was my first time wearing makeup in easily 10 years. I’m rocking my go-to style: the twist out. I was really happy with how it turned out that day!
