Hi everyone!!!!!!!!!
I'm Rochelle, also called Chelly. I'm from the wonderful islands of the Bahamas!!!!!!!!!!!!! sunny For those of you that don't know it's right below Florida in the US of A. It's not as awesome as you think living in the Bahamas Neutral , but it is awesome. I hardly go to the beach and can't swim Embarassed ...Back to the subject, I am currently a sophmore in college, my major is biochemistry. I've never been natural before...as I child I got a texturizer since I knew myself. BUT, I am now transitioning, I've been transitioning for about seven months. My reason for transitioning to natural hair is because I want to become comfortable in my own skin and my hair has dropped from touching my back to less than neck-length. It is now touching my back again but I am still not satisified with the length. I have no favorite products because I am skeptical about spending 20 dollars on a bottle of shampoo to find out that it doesnt work, remeber I am in college and am a dependent of my parents, hence I don't make my own money...So, any product recommendations that are sold in general stores would be nice, that will make my hair softer, grow, stronger,etc... I currently used the Olive Oil Organic Root Stimulator brands...It's ok but not SPECTACULAR...My hair is always kept up in one and in a folded bun...any suggestions of hairstyles would be nice...BUT I am now having a major problem with dryness I do not know how to keep my hair moisturize, so a little help is seriously needed in that section, and I've never clipped my ends since my transition, but I treat every week is that bad>? Pictures of protective i.e. covered hairstyles would be nice...products, info, w/e!....HAPPY TO BE HERE...AND LOOOKING FORWARD TO REACHING THE FULL NATURAL BRIDGE! Oh and btw...I do not want to b/c I have always had shoulder length hair/ neck-length and idk how I would react to short hair...just thought I'd slip that in there Very Happy Enjoy the rest of your night chicas.

Allow me to reintroduce myself

Post by ColeyB on 19th September 2010, 5:17 pm

Hi Ladies,

My name is Coley and I just registered on CN today!!!!

I am from Florida where the humidity is so fierce it puffs my hair so much!

I am an Operations Manager for a bank.

I did my BC (for the 2nd time) on October 22, 2009. I went to the barbershop and got a fade. I enjoyed it so much I kept getting it cut like that for about 3 months. I have been growing my hair out since January 2010 and so far I am getting better with developing a steady regimen, but that is why I am here to get some HELP.

A few of my favorite products are: unrefined shea butter, coconut oil, Yes to Carrots shampoo and Conditioner, Cantu Leave in conditioner Shea Moisture Coconut Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk and Jane Carters Wrap & Roll.

I look forward to reading and learning more about my 3c/4a hair!

Still Learning

Post by creativecurly on 10th October 2010, 6:19 pm

Hello fellow curlys,
I’m a first time poster, long time reader of curlynikki.com articles, posts and guests. I’ve been natural (again) for 17 months. My first experience with natural hair was a test with my patience and a true indicator of my reluctance to accept my natural hair texture.

I shaved my head in May of 2007, It felt so great to take a shower and feel the water massage my baldhead. As my hair grew back I was happy to have hair again, until November of 2008 when I decided to treat my hair to a texturizer. BIG mistake… I left it on way too long and the result was bone straight hair. I had my hair chopped off into a cute short style and kept it that way until the chemically treated hair was cut. I’ve been growing it out since.

Thanks to all of you I have been able to fall in love with my hair and appreciate the true beauty of being natural. I’m also thankful for the many pictures, tutorials and tips.

Introducing.....me:)

Post by jalicia77 on 12th October 2010, 2:57 pm

Hello ladies (I see no gents currently:)) I just joined today as I stumbled across the site while searching for natural hair salons in the MD/DC/VA area. I'm from georgetown guyana, but have been living in Maryland for the past 17 years.

I graduated from UM College Park and stayed working there in higher ed administration for 10 years and will be starting a new job (thank the lord!) in a few weeks at a local community college.

I started my hair journey last summer. My last perm was august 2009, and I stopped mainly because I got better results with a twice a month blowout, than with any chemical relaxer.

Along the way I became very unhappy with my work and my work life balance and decided that in the spirit of starting anew, I wanted to go natural. So on May 1, I cut it all off in time for the Revlon Walk for Womens' Cancers.

Overall I've been very pleased with my experience, though I did suffer a self imposed setback in late summer. I was called in for a job interview and totally panicked and had a blowout. Of course my hair was uneven and I ended up cutting a few inches off in order to get a decent straight style. Que sera! I learned my lesson and haven't done it since.

Sooo, here I am 5.5 months natural and loving it. As relative newbie, I'm still trying to find the best products for my hair, but I enjoy KCKnot today, shea butter, veggie glycerin, apple cider vinegar and dessert essence coconut shampoo and conditioner.

I'm so glad to have discovered CN!

Hey Ladies!

I'm new to the forum but have been an CN addict for about a year now and thought it was time I introduced myself, so here goes!

Name: Sian (pronounced Sharn)

Hair Type: 3b and mostly 3c with high porosity and a mixture of medium and course strands (really frizzy at the crown)

Hometown: London UK baby! wooohooo

Current Residence: I'm studying in Cambridge, just an hour away from home.

Occupation: Student (only one year to go and then I'm freeeee)

How long you've been natural: I've been naturaly my whole life in that I've never had a relaxer (although I badly wanted one throughout my teens) - between the ages of 13 and 18 I lived in a world of slicked back gelled hair and then straightened with ceramics until I lost my natural texture. Then 2/3years ago I decided to grow out my weird quasi straight hair and only sport straight styles once every now and again (maybe once or twice per year)... since doing so my hair has got its old bounce back and I'm now trying to grow out the effects of dying it with harsh chemicals in a bid to have really natural and most importantly healthy hair.

Fav products: Still figuring that out, altough I'll be trying out the reccomendations that I get from CN as far as my humble budget will allow! A consistent fav has always been tressemme conditioner

Looking forward to getting to know all of you better!

lovings! xx
