I’m Bunning for the #KimColesGOC!

I'm Bunning for the #KimColesGOC!
Hola Chicas,

I am officially on the GOC Train!

Last night I dry detangled in sections using my miracle performing Tangle Teezer, twisting large sections as I went. I then washed (with Elucence), and deep conditioned (with Jessicurl WDT) in the twists. Finally, after air drying for 20 minutes, I divided the bigger twists into smaller ones using Jessicurl TooShea. I allowed my hair to air dry over night, and this morning I removed them, finger combed for volume, and pulled my hair up into a high doughnut bun. I love how soft the Jessicurl TooShea left my hair, but it added zero shine, and little hold… which makes sense, because it’s not a leave-in or a styler, lol. But my hair feels ridiculously moisturized. Maybe I’ll reserve the TooShea for my ends? Whatever the case, it’s worth revisiting because my hair hasn’t felt this nice in a long time.

I achieved the bun by stealing one of hubby’s black socks (shhhh!), cutting off the toe, and rolling it into a fat, little doughnut. I loosely secured my hair with a Goody Ouchless band, and pulled my hair through the doughnut. I then fanned my hair in all directions, hiding the doughnut, and secured with another Goody band (pulling it over and around my hair and the doughnut). This is what I ended up with:


I'm Bunning for the #KimColesGOC!I'm Bunning for the #KimColesGOC!
This will be my style for the next several days. I’ll re-moisturize as needed, but pretty much just leave it be. I’ll keep you gals posted! Side note- Aunty bought a Tangle Teezer last weekend and called me nearly in tears! She said it glided through her hair and she lost significantly less hair. She is so excited. I’m still loving it too.

**Wanna see something disturbing?**

My Mother-in-Law shared this pic:

I'm Bunning for the #KimColesGOC! No, that baby ain’t Gia… that’s my husband! LAWD, this pic shut it down. Boogie officially looks like daddy. Womp Womp.

I'm Bunning for the #KimColesGOC!In other news, I’m still going hard with the baby sign language, and now, when I sign and say ‘milk’, she goes BONKERS! I’m still breastfeeding, but tomorrow, she’ll have her first taste of cereal *tear*. Is it wrong that I’m already having issues with her growing up?

    Stay with the baby sign language!! My sister taught my niece how to sign and her favorite one was the sign for breast milk!! She would go bonkers too! It was great to know what she wanted before she could talk.

  • Juanita says:

    Wow, they look soooo much alike on those pics!!!
    Sooo….. I took notes on your bunning technique yesterday and decided to give it a go today. This morning, I stood in front of the mirror, snipped the sock designated for the task, rolled it, secured my hair, slipped the doughnut, then….TOTAL mess. I don’t know if it’s my hair texture or my total lack of technique, but I couldn’t get my hair to go under the sock! For every strand that would end up under it, tons more would just stick out in all kinds of directions. At some point, I just gave up, removed the doughnut, rolled and pinned my hair in all directions to form a bun (sorta). I guess it wasn’t so smart to try a new hairstyle right before being almost late for work!!

  • Breanna says:

    Wow she really does look like your hubby on that picture that you have above. Because on other pictures she looks like you and your father lol..lol…. Those are some strong genes :), so onto baby #2 I bet the little boy will look just like a mini version of his dad.

  • Qurlyqt says:

    I'm usually a lurker but had to comment on this cute comparison pic! Congrats on your adorable bundle, she's such a cutie! Yes, I see both you and your husband in Gia! Not sure if you have one yet but if not, invest in one of those "First Year" picture frames where you can put a small pic for each month all the way up to 1 year. I used to think the frames were corny before I became a mom but now I look at them ALL the time, reminiscing!

    Not sure if this is the case with everyone but MY children changed SO much as babies but the way they looked at 10/11 months is exactly how they look now! My twins are getting ready to turn 4 and my oldest is 5.

  • CURLYNIKKI says:

    @ Jamila, it is! In the past, I've cut up my black satin bonnet to layer over the sock but (1) don't have one, and (2)I'm lazy, lol. This is also the reason why my doughnut used to be made out of several satin scrunchies. If that's a concern, maybe you could visit one of those alternatives! You could also just ride out with the sock, and be sure to remove it at night.

    And yes ladies! Baby G is her daddy's child. But every now and then, she'll smile and I'll see ME 🙂

  • SwirlieCurlies says:

    Gia is def the girl version of her papi!

    Keep it up with the baby sign language too! My little sister and brother are 2 and 1 and they both speak sign language courtesy of my 17 year old sis who speaks it fluently.

  • Jamila Reddy says:

    Nikki,

    Isn't putting a sock directly on your hair the same as using a cotton scarf/knit hat (without having your hair protected with silk or satin?)

    Lemme know!

    -Jamila

  • Shake says:

    Ohemmgee Nikki! You birthed Gene!!!! She'll probably look like you as she get older I sure 🙂

  • Anonymous says:

    Yea, it looks to me like the shape of her face is the same as his, but I think the face is yours. There, she looks like both of you lol

  • jaimitch says:

    Baby Gia is beautiful, (p.s. my son will be 2 in June, he's going to be an amazing catch, I'm all for arranging a marriage, lmao). Anyway she does look just like your husband but she is going to have your high cheek bones, she got the best of both of you, adorable.

  • BlondeByDesire says:

    Wow, that is your hubby's twin (lol) they look just alike …

  • Anonymous says:

    CurlyNikki I have no idea WHY this girl took the pics? She kept Coouing over the pics saying they both looked like twins and that they were so cute! For some reason that I don't understand, this girl started to follow me around??? My friend were laughing at me the hold time..asking who my new little friend was!lol(I was mad as hell) Tried to brush the child off…to no aveil! Anyways she spotted the pics…they were on my keychain…by the way did I say she also took my house keys that were attached to the pics as well…Yeah! HEATED! long story short…i didn't realize this chic didn't give me back my keys until I was back home and hour away… and checked my bag to get in the house!!!! Can anyone say FURIOUS!!!! I could have killed that little Troll!

  • Anonymous says:

    She looks just like him…awwww

  • Anonymous says:

    she looks just like him!!! awwww. Daddy's Girl all the way 🙂

  • Quite says:

    Nikki, better luck with the next one! Gia is all her daddy(except for the hair, maybe) I've heard is common for first borns to resemble the father(some anthropological thing that it helps the man bond with the child better because it favors him..)…who knows who cares? she's adorable…

  • Unknown says:

    Dang it Nikki! Something else I'm going to have to buy now that it's gotten such a good review from my trusted hair guru LOl 🙂

    Those pics are too cute and yes, she looks just like her dad! I'm going through the same thing with my 2 month old….since the day she was born, she's looked like I had nothing whatsoever to do with that creation! I'm keeping hope alive though. You're not alone in your lament: the little one has to start going to daycare when I go back to work in a couple of weeks and I think I'm going to lose my mind! What am I going to do without our regular BF/bonding time during the day (already having withdrawal and it hasn't even happened yet!). How soon did you start signing with Baby G?

  • NinaC says:

    Girl, Ive been trying to get my bun that big for AGES and I could never figure out how you did it! Heehee, I feel like I know a secret!

  • Anonymous says:

    We need to see a pic of you Nikki at the same age to really tell….but I agree with the person who says the upper face favors you while the bottom is EXACTLY like hubby. Congrats on the breastfeeding…I BF'd my son until 14 months and he was extremely healthy….colds and crap kicked in when BF'ing stopped. Enjoy, she is a beaut!!

  • CURLYNIKKI says:

    Moni, glad to hear you're on the TT bandwagon too. Am I the only one that feels like they need to pay us. Damn.

    Thanks Raquell! Gene (hubby) is trying to claim those too. Whatever!

    LOL @ Anon! WHY, WHY did they steal your pictures?! Not cool. I would've raised hell. My mother-in-law wouldn't let me take that pic I posted… I had to take a picture with my cell phone, lol. She was afraid she'd never see it again.

  • Anonymous says:

    I can so see how a baby can look like Dad SPIT her/him OUT! lol Gia baby certainly is no exception! Why does my daughter, in her 3 month old picture look JUST LIKE…and I MEAN JUST LIKE her brother from ANOTHER MOTHER, I couldn't even tell the diffrence and this is my child now! It's so WEIRD how another womens child can look just like yours!!! Mmmmm I would have loved to send the pics in for everyone to see what I'm talking about…Adorable! but why did someone at a party I went to steal the baby pictures! what was that all about???? Anywho…Some thing told me to get my picture's back from that girl! She was holding them too long! Damn!!!

  • Raquell says:

    She is SOO cute!! She does look like dad but 100% has your eyes 🙂

  • Moni says:

    I LOVE the Tangle Teezer! It's so great that I wrote a facebook note telling all of my natural friends about it!

    Gia does look just like her Daddy in that picture but all isn't lost! Everyone said I looked like my Dad when I was a kid, but now I look more like my Mom. In fact, I grow more and more like my Mom every day…

  • CURLYNIKKI says:

    thanks ladies! I agree that she looks like my daddy, but that picture right there, scared the hell out of me, lol!

    @anon, I feel you… she has my forehead, brows, and eyes and his lower face.

    and CurlyBlasian, don't be scurred of the Tangle Teezer! Try it and check back in!

  • Anonymous says:

    Nik! Beautiful hair as usual. But girrrrll, you might as well give it up. lol. Her daddy spit her out…she is all him. PS…the tangle teazer looks scary, but I may have to run out and buy. Thanks.

  • Sharmer says:

    Omg that is creeeepy! You swear they were twins or something! Yeah Nikki it looks like you had nothing to do with that. Lol

  • Anonymous says:

    I'm definitely in love with my tangle teezer and it's not partial to dry hair or wet hair with conditioner. Wish my hair was ready for bunning still need a little more length maybe i'll try two buns. Gia looks like dad keep your head up:)

  • Lj says:

    I absolute LOVE that you're nursing…and teaching you little one signs! Great job 🙂

  • Annie Gracie says:

    Wow…I think I'm gonna jump on the Tangle Teezer bandwagon and get one too! Anything to breeze through detangling!

  • Yblass1 says:

    I LOVE my tangle teezer for both my 5 yr old DD and myself. BTW, when our DD was a baby she looked exactly like her Dad's baby picture. Oh, around 2 or so she started switching to my side. Now, at 5 yrs old every1 that sees us together says she looks exactly like a mini-me. My husband says "well she used to look like me." Keep hope alive – she can still end up looking like you. Tell your hubby to enjoy his time in the spotlight! 🙂 Stay blessed & enjoy the time because before you know it she will be going to kindergarten & you will have to call your best friend to talk you out of the parking lot! and from going back to her classroom to peek in 4 times! Not that I know about it personally…I'm just saying…:-)

  • Anonymous says:

    Absolutely! It is normal to feel that way and you will continue to feel that way regardless of her age. I nursed my 2 1/2 year old daughter for a little over 2 years. I cried for over a week when I started weaning her off of breastmilk. They time goes by too fast so take plenty of vids & pics.

  • MelMelBee says:

    Until I saw that pic, I thought she looked exactly like you…LOL. I LOVE LOVE LOVE my tangle teezer

  • Shoni says:

    Its okay Nikki my son looked JUST LIKE his father til he was about two then he started to resemble both of us. Now that he is five he looks more like me than his father. You still have a chance. LOL!!!! by the way hair looks great!!!!!

  • Anonymous says:

    Wow, she looks like her daddy! Thank you so much for posting this about the bun because I think I may do the same tomorrow.

  • Anonymous says:

  • Thrifty curly says:

  • Miche'al says:

    I just got out of the shower and was completely floored on how quickly I was able to detangle with my Teezer. It is AWESOME!

  • OandZismom says:

    apparently i DID figure out how to post under my profile, LOL……….

  • OandZismom says:

    I can not for the life of me figure out how to post a comment using my real name/profile.
    Anyway, congrats on keeping up with the nursing! You're doing great. Keep it going. We all have problems with our babies growing up! Dont worry. Take pics of her first taste of cereal and make note of how it makes her feel and if it constipates her. Mix up that cereal in some water if you wish, so you wont damage that "liquid gold".
    I, like esh, was an "exclusive" nurser for a LONG time, and didnt give cereal for a while.
    Also, DANG ON! that baby look just like her DADDAY!:-)

  • Esh says:

    Many mommies experience that. But beware of the cereal. I breastfed my son and we were advised to try cereal in the breastmilk to make him fuller…… Lets just say it backed his little system up for a day and he wouldn't drink the tainted milk.lol. So in my case more harm was done than good. Breastmilk is really all they need! I'm facing the mommy journey of sending my little boy to kindergarten this upcoming August… I'm so not ready for this! The years go by fast.. enjoy them!

    Nikki, Baby G totally has YOUR eyes and brows. Upper face is like yours and lower face resembles your husband.

  • Beth says:

    I have two nieces and a nephew, and their parents were all about the baby signing. It was pretty cool to be able to know what they wanted before they were old enough to speak.
