    Wonderful job! Sn: The last few pics i've seen of you, you're rockin' the neutrals…have you thought about wearing some bold colors? Like blouses, eyeshadows, accessories? You seem to have an simple chic kind of style…but i think a splash of color would really enhance your already beautiful features. Just my 2 cents. Again, great job.

    Go girl! I've been following you since your henna thread on NC.com. I remember your first blog design. CN has come a long way and I'm so proud of you!

    You GO girl!!! Just GO!!!! :0) I visit your site all the time and I love it!! I love your honesty and I never feel like you are just trying to push a product. I don't expect everything you've used to yield the same results for me because, as you know, hair just doesn't work that way, but I so appreciate your advice (me, being the product junkie that I am :0)) and most often I'm satisfied with the products and methods discussed here that I try out on my hair. I don't know you personally (though I live in Raleigh, NC, was here when you were here and I didn't even know about those meet-ups that were going on!!! shame.) but I am just so proud of you. And so proud am I to be a sistah rocking my natural hair all day everyday, even on the "girl wrap that up or put a hat on" days. 'Cause under that hat are some tightly coiled curls that I love, love, love, partly because of the good stuff you splay on this site day after day. Your courage, tenacity and fresh, fierce approach are absolutely inspiring. Again, (in my best Martin Lawrence voice) YOU GO GIRL!!!!!! :0) —pamela t.

    You forgot to mention Gia. Lol!

    Great job and wonderful exposur for the blog as well. It's comforting to know that "future" naturals have great sources of support, unlike myself, who had to stumble around a bit.

  • Pamela says:

    Nikki, you are doing the damn thing! Your site was my first intro to natural hair and you continue to inspire natural curlies world-wide! You are the bomb.com and I love your style, your site, your integrity…you are curly "class" personified! Don't change a thing and keep doing what you're doing. In the words of my 15 year daughter – you are AMAZING! Love you gurl!!!

    AWESOME as usual! Good job and thank you for all your hard work!

  • nellboogie says:

    Yay Nic!!!! *Doing the Cabbage Patch* ๐Ÿ˜€

  • Nichole says:

    That's awesome. Congratulations! I feel like I've been there from the beginning when you decided to start the blog with encouragement from others. What I like most about your site is the positivity. I had been on other hair blogs and there was too much drama for me. There's this understood, unspoken rule to "check your attitude" to enter your blog, and it's refreshing. Kudos to you Nikki for creating an environment where you merged your passion for hair and well-being.

  • Miesha says:

    Yay, I was so excited to see your article and picture! I shared the article with my friends on FB. Great article! Thank you, Nikki!!!! Awesome!

  • Anonymous says:

    You did UH-MAZING! I've always been impressed with your site and the abundance of news you provide for naturalistas everywhere. And now I am even more excited because it seems like the public at large is taking notice! True, your reach has always been broad and extensive with the abundance of readers who follow your site (I confess I'm a stalker….I view your site every morning with my cup of coffee…lol) but now other women who may not be aware of the healthy, natural revolution taking place can tune in. Kudos and keep up the good work. It's also particularly important to me that you not only run a site where you have something to say and valuable info to provide, but you're a highly educated, intelligent, married, black mother…..seriously dude, if you watched TV you'd think black women like you didn't exist ๐Ÿ™‚ Please continue to do what you do! You represent well ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Margaret says:

    Great article!!! Your hair is absolutely beautiful as always. I am also a huge supporter of Curlynikki.com and have to have my blog fix daily. lol
    Nikki, your insight regarding hair from the psychological aspect is what sets your blog apart from others. It is more than just hair. Thank you Nikki and blessings for giving us the encouragement, love and support while on our individual journey's. Also, I want to thank you for being the beautiful person you are inside as well as out.

  • Aishah says:

    Awww shucks Nik!!!! Great interview. And in case we haven't told you recently we appreciate you. (we = me + my curls)

  • Michelle @Radiant Brown Beauty says:

    You did wonderfuL! Sweet and to the point ๐Ÿ™‚

  • Niah says:

    WOW! You did great and of course hit it right on. I'm so proud to refer people to your site all the time. As i said on Essence.com,

    "I am a huge supporter of Curlynikki.com. Nikki Walton has become more like family to us all and i think i can speak for everyone when i say, she has been a key part to helping women along their natural journey because it can be trying at times when family/friends scrutinize your decision to look like the woman God made you to be with your natural tresses.

    I became a little bit of a local celebrity when i was featured on her "On the Couch With…" section of her blog and that alone gave me more courage, support and confidence. I wish many more blessings to Mrs. Nikki Walton!!! I see her going beyond the stars. ๐Ÿ™‚

  • RNatural says:

    You were awesome, Good Job!!

  • ChrLvsBks says:

    Nikki, you did mahrvelous dahrling (said like Zsa Zsa Gabor)!

  • Empreanna says:

    Love, Love, Love IT. The article was awesome and to the point. Your hair looks darker. Did you do an Indigo Henna? The color is looks very nice for the upcoming fall weather. I was thinking about going darker myself. Nikki, your site is so inspirationalโ€ฆ.I am so glad I stumbled across it. God Bless and have a great holiday weekend. Enjoy!!

  • Jessica says:

    This is wonderful Nikki! You are a pioneer of the natural hair movement and because of you more women will have the courage to go natural!
    So proud of you! I've been following your site since I went natural in 2008!

    Great article!

  • SaBrina says:

    That was a good interview very direct and to the point. I love the photo as well, those curls are looking very juicy in those pictures. Clapping for you now doing such a good interview and you will probably have even more naturals coming your way to visit the site that didnt know you existed :).

  • Naturally Nita says:

    You did well as always! It seems like Essence.com is trying to do a better job of featuring more naturally curly individuals in their website. I'm glad to see them diversifying the images that they display on their site and magazine.

  • Jax says:

    Great article, your points were succinctly made. Yay for all the interest in this natural hair re-awakening.

    How did you achieve the style that you are pictured with in the article? I am waiting for my order of curlformers to arrive, because I've been stretching my hair with cornrows and flat twists in a bid to reduce my single strand knots

  • Anonymous says:

    Way to represent Nikk, Great Job girl. Not only did you look FABULOUS but you explained, in a nutshell, what your wonderful site is all about and how it came about. CONGRATULATIONS on a job well done. (Oh and the hair was picture perfect!)
    Smile.
