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:
This pic is of me documenting my growth. I co-wash with HE Hello Hydration, then when my hair’s still wet, run some Wen Leave-in Conditioner through it. I sometimes spritz a little diluted gel depending on the weather.
This is my 1st twist out the actually looked decent… I’m not sure what I did differently, but the results were hot!
This picture was taken on Mothers Day! I have been transitioning for 11 months. I washed my hair with Gionvanni 50 50 shampoo, and deep conditioned with 50 50 conditioner. I then applied Gionvanni Weightless Leave-in (detangles very well). I used Dominique Goosby Harris’ (All Things O’Natural) Homemade Gel and braided my hair in 7 braids. Finally, I sealed the ends with olive oil and rolled with sponge rollers. I allowed my hair to air dry and stay braided for a whole day. The style usually lasts for 5 days.
Just on my way out for the day…I live and work in Spain. This is my favorite style…twist-out done on dry hair! Came out great! I used Shea moisture Curl enhancing Smoothie to moisturize.
Thanks to your forum, I have stepped my glam factor up! To hell with that article that says AA women are unattractive! In my eyes, we are beautiful in all of our shades, hairstyles and types! This is after I coiled my hair using Curls soufflé, love it! Then because my new addiction is makeup (thanks to the makeup thread) I put on my first pair of lashes..all by myself! You couldn’t tell me NOTHIN! lol
I love what this forum does for me! Thanks again Nikki!
This is a picture of a longtime friend/classmate and myself (right) . We had been taking some senior pictures this day. She is an on-and-off (currently off) natural and I have been completely natural since Dec. ’09 (my transition story is hundreds of posts ago somewhere on this site). My hairstyle is a result of a several day old twist-out moisturized with water, shea butter, and Hawaiian Silky leave-in. We graduate from high school on May 27th!

We were attending a christening and brunch!! This was a four day old wet braid-out with Herbal Essences Hello Hydration, morrocan oil, and Cantu Shea Butter Leave-in Conditioner.
My first successful stretched style – a flat twist-out which I rocked to the library…gotta study in style!
This is me in my genie locs heading to my god-sons Pre-K prom. I watched a Youtube video that taught me how to complete the style. It took a long while but I got’er done just fine.
Here’s a picture taken by a friend on a sunny Friday afternoon in the staffroom at the school where I teach. Just ready for the weekend to start, heading home to my hubby! I used Kinky Curly Curling Custard and Knot Today on my hair.
We always need more!
