Today at 6:30pm one of my best friends, Megan Hodge,
will compete for a gold medal in women’s indoor volleyball!
been teammates for three years on the national team and she is one of
the most humble and hard working people that I know. For that reason,
there is no way she would have submitted anything to Nikki letting her
know about her fabulous hair and accomplishments… that’s why she has me!
This is her first Olympics and she is only 23! Before making it to the
national team and the Olympics, she played 4 years at Penn State where
she was a 4 time All-American and 3 time National Champion. As far as
her beautiful coifs go, she has been natural for almost a year now and
transitioned for 6 months while she was in Poland playing for a
professional club. In Poland, she turned into a huge product junkie, an
addiction we both share, and learned many new styles that worked for
athletes since we sweat everyday.
If you can watch the game tomorrow,
you will see her beautiful twist out pulled back with a headband to
contain the sweat and give some flair. Hope all of you can watch Megan
and the team win the first gold in USA indoor women’s volleyball history!
I saw her during the Olympics and I was like "Yay! She's a natural athlete!" lol It's good to see her represent the natural hair community!
Congrats Megan on winning silver! I noticed your beautiful hair prior to your final match. Glad to see more naturals. CN there is a natural USA olympian who fences. We salute these ladies beauty and bravery. Love your style!
Megan I almost missed the game staring at that fabulous hair! Bravo young lady!
good luck megan! i'll be rooting for you (and your awesome hair)!
Team USA's indoor volleyball team has been amazing this Summer. They beat Brazil and the DR (both really tough matches) and now that they're playing Brazil again it's sure to be a great match. Love Megan's hair!! Good luck!!!
Good luck Megan!!!!
USA! USA! I've been watching a ton of volleyball, thinking "when is Curly Nikki going to interview Megan Hodge?" Bring home the gold!
YOU GO GIRL!!!!!ROCK THAT FROM CAUSE NATURAL GIRLS ROCK…..
I haven't been able to keep up with the Olympics, but I have seen the U.S. women's volleyball team and they are magnificent! I have to force myself to turn off the t.v., since I can get really into the competition. But, while watching the women play, I did notice Megan's hair. I was happy to see a Black female athlete rocking her natural hair! I hope they bring home the gold for Team USA! I wish them all the luck in the world! 🙂
WOW! WE HAVE THE SAME NAME! Megan you rock that game and that twistout! She is natural and I am too! Sweet!
I've been watching the games….let's get GOLD!

I love playing volleyball. Good luck Megan!
Beautiful! Go Megan and USA ! Good luck ladies!
Good luck tomorrow! I saw her and was curious about her, now thanks to this post I know.
Since I went natural (11 months now) i'm starting to notice how many people are natural. I noticed her hair the first game I saw them play and I remember thinking how cute her twist out looked with the headband. She is beautiful! Go Megan & USA!
You go grrrrrlll!
It takes a special person to make it all the way to the Oympics! When you get back – inquiring minds want to know about your healthy regimen!!
Good luck Megan

Though I am on TeamJA, I have to say I wish they would show more volleyball than beach volleyball *sideeye. They are so good! I've seen her. Nice hair.
Destiny Hooker is pretty good .
Go Megan!!! You are doing us all proud! Fab hair and body.
Go, Megan! Love your hair… wishing you the best tomorrow!! http://discoveringnatural.com
Even though I am cheering hard for my home country, Jamaica, I will surely be cheering for my adopted country, USA in the indoor volleyball competition. Go #teamnatural! God be with you, Megan and the rest of the team!
I love that she's wearing her natural hair loud and proud for the Olympics. Wish all those women who use their hair as an excuse not to exercise would take note.
