Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!


This is me in Charlotte, NC at CIAA 2011. I’m 8 months post BC and loving it! I washed with Aussie Moist Shampoo and conditioned with Giovanni 50/50 and Paul Mitchell’s The Detangler. I then did some flat twists on the side and a twist out on the other side using Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie. My friends loved it and it was super easy for the weekend 🙂Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!
I was at a Surprise 40th Birthday Party. As I was cleaning the table, the photographer wanted to take my picture. This look is inspired from Ms. Vaughn’s The Jamaican Braiding Updo. By the way, Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque is my best friend!Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!
At work. Super excited because this was my first puff! Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!

After spending an hour trying to manipulate a twist-out into an up-do for a CIAA party, I got frustrated and did a ‘faux blow’ with my tangle teezer and an Afro pic…and got MAJOR compliments all night!Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!
I had just got back from celebrating my sister’s birthday at the club and my hair STILL looked cute so I had to take a pic. This was a twist-out on week old twists that I pinned back into a mohawk. Almost a year since my BC and loving it.Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!

I was at my mom’s 50’th birthday Brunch. This is a Wash and Go, with Caster oil (infusion), Shea Butter, Amla oil and Jasmine Oil. I applied the oils the day before, and in the morning, I just sprayed some water. I went natural (Big Chopped) for the third time in December ’09. Love your blog by the way!!!!!!!Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!

This a cornrow twist updo. The back of my hair is in cornrows and the front is in two strand twists. This is sort of a play on Janelle Monae’s signature style. Hubby and I spent the day shopping and capped the day with dinner. I live in NC and it was a beautiful day to be outside. I will also upload a video showing how I achieved the hairstyle.Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!
Rockin’ a dry twist out which I absolutely LOVED!! I was feeling super sexy and fierce that night heading out to my birthday party…Natural hair is so fly!!!! 😉Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!

At work…did I a Twist and Curl using flexi-rods after doing my first Henna treatment. Loving it!!!!Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!

This is a dry twist-out on an old TnC with SheaMoisture Smoothie and KinkyCurly Curling Custard. I used Shea butter to seal the ends. Love it!Show and Tell- Fierce Friday!
