Corporate Hair a la Trish!!

By Curly Nikki 24 Comments

Hi Nikki, Here are a few pictures of my corporate hair. These are two-stand twists pinned up and to the side. After washing, I used Shea butter as an overall moisturizer, then twisted with Biosilk drops and a very small amount of IC gel. (I liked the combo, but I probably will just use Aloe Vera gel next time. I…

Minor Routine Change

By Curly Nikki 7 Comments

We’re quickly approaching the weekend…can I get an Amen?! I’ve tweaked my routine ever so slightly…from now on (or at least until I change my mind again 😉 ) I’ll only be washing/detangling/styling my hair once a week. I’ll wear it out in a Bantu Knot-Out, or Twist-n-Curl until it becomes ridiculously frizzy and then bun it. I haven’t re-styled…

Our Resident Curly Guy on Bantu Knots

By Curly Nikki 22 Comments

I saw Curlee’s Bantu-Knot out results on NaturallyCurly.com a few weeks ago and just had to get an exclusive. I’m incredibly jealous- his hair is AMAZING! Here’s what he had to say: First, I separated my hair into the separate Bantu knots on dry hair so it would be easier to manage in the shower. I had maybe about 5…

oooop2- Bantu Knot-Out Results

By Curly Nikki 10 Comments

I co-washed my hair w/DevaCurl. Afterward, I used a bit more DevaCurl and Hello Hydration condish as a leave-in. I then applied my shea-aloe mix to my damp hair and did about 15 knots. When I woke up, my twists were still damp. I guess I started the process too late- tried to blowdry some, but it was taking too…

End of the Day Knot-Out Results

By Curly Nikki 40 Comments

Bottom Line– I like the results- adding it to my arsenal of hair styles. Pros: It yields more of a consistent curl pattern from root to tip (compared to the TwistnCurl which yields waves and curls) Relatively easy to sleep on Quick styling time- hopefully I’ll see this benefit after a few more times I look slightly less crazy on…

Jenius J on Bantu Knot-Outs

By Curly Nikki 17 Comments

Jenius J: I used this style to transition without doing the BC. I do double-strand twists, then roll into the knots, and fix with bobby pins. I have a big head so I do AT LEAST 20 knots…I typically twist one day, air dry overnight, then wear for a week. The twists come out really tight, and loosen up and…

Hola Chicas! After looking at the gorgeous hair in this fotki, and seeing Empressri’s short vid, I’ve decided that it’s time to try a Bantu Knot-out! So, I’m commissioning you gorgeous gals for advice: 1. Do you two-strand twist prior to wrapping the hair around itself, or single strand? 2. How many do you do? 3. Product line up? 4….

I’m writing to share with the CurlyNikki.com readers about my formal hair solution for for teeny weeny afro last month. I attended the Zulu Ball this Mardi Gras in New Orleans, a strictly formal event, and spent most of January wigging out about what I would do with my hair. I had a dress all picked out, shoes, purse, and…
