Hi Everyone! I'm Moni and I'm so glad to be here! I'm from the beautiful Bermuda (shout out to Miz Carter!), though I also rep Atlanta, since I went to Emory for college. I'm currently in Ann Arbor, Michigan, about to finish law school. I have no idea what I'm doing with my life after this! I've been natural since February 2008, so almost 20 months. I looooove my hair, even when it gets on my nerves. [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] My favorite products are Giovanni direct leave-in, Trader Joe's nourish spa conditioner, Qhemet Biologics burdock root butter cream, Oyin honey hemp conditioner, unrefined coconut oil, Aubrey organics conditioners (all of them!), Lustrasilk cholesterol with shea butter/mango, and my shealoe mix.

Hello Ladies!!

Post by FemmeNaturale on 10th November 2009, 7:23 pm

HI my name is Sabine and I'm from Connecticut. I'm am an LPN and currently in school working to get my RN. I will be done next year hopefully. I have been natural for about 3 years. In my 3 years of being natural I have been wearing braids and weave for about 98% of the time. Just recently I really thought about my reasons for going natural. I realized that I had expectations of waking up one day and having Tracey Ellis Ross hair. Of course that wasn't going to happen...especially overnight!!! I did my BC in December 2007. I'm thinking about doing another cut but actually keeping up with it this time. I am challenging myself to wear my own hair for the next 3 months. It might now sound like a long time but for someone like myself who is so hooked on getting a weaves, that seems almost impossible. I'm so happy I found this network because I'm sure with all the support I'll be able to make it to 3 months and hopefully longer. I havent set up an online album yet but I will definitely start that process! I'm loking forward to my journey with you ladies. TTYL

Pic of me( Im the one in white) and my sister at my graduation... yes that is a weave!!!

Post by Cygnet on 13th November 2009, 7:55 pm

Hi! I don't have an avatar here, but I've been posting all over the place here. I'm calling myself Cygnet, after my blog, Canticle of the Cygnet.

I was born in Jacksonville, NC, but I've lived most of my life in Raleigh. I didn't start using chemicals until in my teens, when the Jheri Curl came out, and everyone in my family got one. I used a variety of chemical processes (two relaxers that both fell out, more boxed curly perms) until the late 90's when I went natural. Not knowing how not to comb my hair, I tried texturizing in frustration and did it for several years. Then in June (I think) 2007, due to several different factors, I texturized for the last time. Instead of a big chop, I did a series of little snips every few months, with my mom doing the last little snip in March of this year. So I've been fully natural 8 months.

Currently, I'm a job shopper. I'm looking for work, and I hope I find it real soon!

The products I'm currently using are Garnier Fructis Moisture Works Shampoo for deep cleaning pre-henna; conditioners from the Herbal Essence line for co-washing; a 1:1:3 ratio mix of Suave Naturals Tropical Coconut conditioner, either coconut or olive oil or both, and water as a leave-in/detangler; and Sta-Sof-Fro as a finishing spray. Every 4-6 weeks I apply henna for color.

Hi everyone! My name is Melissa & I'm 21. I'm so glad I found CurlyNikki.com!
Funny story (kind of overdramatic, but this is exactly how it happened) - Two weeks ago, I was really frustrated with my hair. I was thinking about getting a relaxer or trying that Brazilian Keratin Treatment, just because I was just clueless on helping my hair look it's best. Somehow, I stumbled upon CN.com & it's been a huge blessing so far!
No picture yet. But, hopefully I'll be able to upload an avatar soon!

Where are you from: Born in DC, lived in various cities in MD.
What you do: Sales Associate at a specialty running store.
How long you've been natural: Ooh let's see. Relaxed for a few years when I was a girl & then I grew that out. Texturized for a few months when I was 16. Then, because the hair at my nape was breaking off at a crazy rate, I grew the texturizer out & have been natural every since.
Fav products: So far, I'm drinking the Kinky Curly kool-aid. I use Come Clean, Knot Today, & the Curling Custard & I love it. I have the Pantene mask as a deep conditioner, but I'm trying to find something else without cones (I'm thinking of the one from Blended Beauty.)
Online Album: None so far.

P.S. - All ya'll have such beautiful hair! Hopefully, by taking care of mine it will look half as nice haha. (:

I'm just a bit excited that I've found this site [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.]. Actually, I've been hooked on hair for almost 2 years now. It all started in Jan.2008. My new years resolution was to have healthy hair (by taking better care of it and stretching relaxers). Then in Aug.08, I decided that I wouldn't use a relaxer again.

Lo and behold, I transitioned for a year and and I've been completely natural since Aug.09. (Kudos to all the natural newbies [You must be registered and logged in to see this image.] ). Take Care!!
