Congrats divas! Send me your addresses ASAP to nikki@curlynikki.com!
Thanks to everyone for participating and look for the Curlformers giveaway next week!


So I decided to dust off ye olde Curlformers… you know, those irresponsibly expensive hair rollers that somehow keep finding their way to the back of my closet? I’ve been incredibly busy and admittedly neglectful of my curls and decided that a stretched style would be the perfect primer for ‘healthy and productive’ protective styling. That tangled, messy, high bun I’ve been rocking has left me about as dry as the reanimated chicken breasts I subject myself to when I’m back on the wagon. It’s like, once my hair is up- especially when it’s already a hot mess- I develop selective amnesia… out of sight, out of mind. I avoid detangling and re-moisturizing until wash day, which as of late, can sometimes be 2-3 weeks off.

My solution, the tried and true, Southern Tease Bun

It’s a low manipulation protective style that allows me to quickly take it down, moisturize and pin that ish back up and out of the way. Plus, it’s cute and a change from my typical mom bun.

Yesterday, after applying Davines’ Shelter leave-in and a little castor oil to damp hair, I did a chunky Curlformer set (maybe 20?) and allowed it to airdry. This morning, I applied Jane Carter Nourish and Shine to my length and ends and bunned it up. I’m riding out with this for the next 10-14 days, moisturizing and oiling as needed.

Nighttime maintenance- I remove the pins, apply a little Jane Carter Nourish and Shine, create 3 semi flat twists (one at the crown, and one on each side), and don a satin scarf.

**Tell me about your favorite protective style for your chance to win a jar of Original Moxie Hair Bling + Original Moxie Lux Locks!

Friday afternoon three winners will be randomly selected to take home the goods! Good luck divas!**
