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:

Taken right before Christmas. Syl’s hair was freshly pressed and Gia’s… let’s just say I let it do what it do.

I’m an Aircraft Mechanic working in Japan. This is a picture of me letting my hair down for a night on the town with some co-workers. I’m rockin’ one of my favorite styles… the braid-out! It’s great for my busy lifestyle. So when I’m pressed for time, I let my cornrows out, and I’m out the door!
BTW love your Blog ๐Ÿ™‚

I was visiting my parents in Brockton, Mass, about to head to my cousin’s 5th birthday party, when I snapped this photo. I was sporting my favorite go-to style – a twist-out with flat twists in the front. Since I have a short-medium ‘fro (I big chopped June ’10), this is a ‘do that most complements me. And you know I had to garnish my tresses with this funky, silver ball headband. ๐Ÿ™‚

This is me with a chunky bantu knot-out and some make up to make myself look fresh. I live in Brelin, Germany.

Hey yall! In this pic I was in my dorm room. I just got back from my school’s homecoming step show at Claflin University. My hair is in a fro-hawk, I just used a little gel and water to slick my hair back and I put in an accessory I got from Target on the side of my hair.

I finally tried pineappleing to stretch my hair and it was AWESOME! I had the prettiest, biggest, curliest ‘fro that I received so many compliments on. I washed with pure aloe shampoo and olive oil, conditioned with Curls coconut sublime conditioner, slathered with kinky curly curling custard and then pulled it into scrunchies with a wrap on the front (to lay down the edges because I thought that I was going to leave it in a puff). Didn’t like how the puff turned out the next morning, but when I pulled off the scrunchie, it was soooo bouncy and curly! the front was still smooth and slicked back perfectly, so I pushed a headband back on my hair (headband is from Forever 21 since everyone has been asking) and rocked out.

Hey there! This braid-out is the work of a miracle – seriously. I got home at 6, braided my hair into 5 big braids, sprayed it with my water+aussiemoist+aloe+olive oil concoction, prayed that it would get at least get a little dry – and was out the door by 9! My hair is extremely thick so I wasn’t expecting it to dry but it turned out pretty good! We were at a lounge over the holidays meeting up with old friends (let me add that I was the only natural).

First off I LOVE your site. It’s given me so much inspiration and encouragement (especially when I was transitioning). This is me out celebrating my birthday. I’m sporting a 2-day old twist- out.

I was trying out a braid-out with side cornrows since I religiously do twist-outs. New pattern, new look! Hope you like! Love the forum, its changed my life!!!
This is my best braid-out, yet. I hope I can repeat! I did about 12 braids and I rolled the ends with red flexi-rods.

Here’s a pic from my 1st fitness competition where I rocked a braidout and my ends rolled with perm rods. Sorry Iโ€™m so orange, LOL, I unfortunately had to wear tanner on stage. Regardless, this was one of the BEST days of my life and in turn, one of the BEST braidouts Iโ€™ve done. This is my signature style and itโ€™s gotten me to where I am now which is 18months into my transition, which is further than Iโ€™ve ever been in my 5 or 5 failed transition attempts LOL! Iโ€™m awaiting a VERY important phone call in the next few days and IF I donโ€™t get it, Iโ€™ll be doing the big chop for the New Year (I think).
