By January 27th, 202124 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:

Gia
“Momma, there’s only one pair of brown hands in my entire book and they’re touching cotton.
C-O-N-spiracy.
But maybe I’m just being overly sensitive.”

Show and Tell- Fierce Fridays!

I tried the Yes to Carrots conditioner, the twist-n-curl method, and made a jacket, I was on my way to volunteer. I attached a photo and here’s a link with more info:

Santana
This was right after I got it chopped. Of course the stylist loaded my hair with all types of horrible products… So I went home and re-washed with my Giovanni Smooth as Silk Shampoo & quickly added the Smooth as Silk Deeper Moisture Condish to my hair for 20 mins. I air-dried for about 25 mins, added some Bee Mine Curly Butter, & some EVCO. I was good to go! Why the cut? I’ve never had short hair before so I chopped it all off!Show and Tell- Fierce Fridays!
Candia
Greetings from Trinidad and Tobago. Love your blog! I decided to go natural after years of relaxers and weaves. My little sister, Chinara, decided to follow my example (especially after I moved away from home and wasn’t there to do her hair!). Here’s a pic of us during my recent visit home for the holidays. I opted for a big chop. My sister decided to transition for a few months and then chop. Here we are rocking a TWA and twistout respectively. We were on our way out to do so some shopping and sister bonding!Show and Tell- Fierce Fridays!
Amelia
Twist-out from twisting my hair every night using my shea butter mix. I was at home.Show and Tell- Fierce Fridays!
Niqui
This is me on Christmas wearing a twist-out. I wore medium sized twists for 10 days that I took down on Christmas morning. To put the twists in I washed and then twisted using only the kimmaytube leavein. Best twist-out to date!!! Got lots of compliments. Love your website Nikki!Show and Tell- Fierce Fridays!

    @ Ruby Danielle…..just to be clear the "sensitivity" that I meant was the author's, illustrator's and publishers' not CN. Which is why I said that they could have used another color of hands. Surely someone in the company would be aware of the history of slavery, but definitely not consider the implications of publishing this picture, (which is where your consultation statement fits in).

    I wanted to suggest that CN write a letter to the publishing company. I am unfamiliar with the book, and would not want to compromise her website by asking her to state the name of it. But if I do come across it in my library / bookstore travels, you betcha a letter will be typed.

    I agree with Baby G's quote, 4 real lol! She's such a cutie!

  • Ruby Danielle says:

    Uh, NO I don't think you are being overly sensitive; the people who manufactured that book DID NOT have a person of color help…or maybe they did and if so that's even MORE INSENSITIVE!!!!

    Gia is so cute! I wouldn't be able to put her down!

    Ladies, looking beautiful!

    Love the looks ladies! Shout out to Candia, I need that sun and temps like now! Lol.

    Picture in baby G's book does seem a little suspect, (although it is a historical fact about who picked cotton on plantations). Still I suppose to be "PC" another color of hands could have been depicted. Thumbs down for sensitivity.
