ok-JNB! Your name is very unique and I like it.

I also just love, love really love those twists. And since I am your lil sis-you must share with me from start to finish what products you used. I finally was able to do a set of twists that were decent enough for me to wear to work, and I am happy about that. And after seeing your pictures I know I have to keep practicing and per-fecting,

Both of my son's name begin with an X.. I have a thing about names, and I wanted their names to have character. Glad you found you name (can you break it down so we can sound it out) and it suits you!!

First of all, I am so impressed with you, pharma chick (my new name for you, like babylove Laughing ).

THAT NAME IS AWESOME cheers .
It is so fitting for you because I remember when you first BCed and how unsure you were about your look. You didn't own it, like you do now.
NOW, you are come out with these fierce pics, doing youtube videos, and on the front page of the CURLYNIIKI blog.

YOU GO GIRL!!! I AM SO PROUD OF YOU!!! dance

btw, love the new avi!!!

to wear to work, and I am happy about that. And after seeing your

So, I actually did a wash and go the night before. I made large sections and applied Afroveda Curl Define. Then in smaller sections I applied the Pur Whipped Gelly. I didn't really care for the wash and go. There was entirely too much shrinkage. It's definitely not KCCC. So the next day I twisted. Because my hair was heavy with product, I didn't really need to apply any. I sprayed just a bit a water to make the hair more pliable. On sections I felt particularly dry I applied more of the Curl Define to the ends. I like the consistency of the Curl Define much better than the Totally Twisted. I think I may try it alone for my next set of twists.

Thanks Karyn. Speaking of pronunciations. Do you pronounce your name like Karen or Karin?

WOW! That truly made my day. I am so glad that I could inspire someone. This is what it's all about. I feel so much love on CSJ right now.

Hey JNB...your hair's name is great...so fitting! :-)

I have subscribed...will be checking for your videos.

And...I, too, had to learn to accept a compliment with just a simple THANK YOU! No background story, no "this old thing"...just Thank You and a smile. Currently, I think I'm shocked by compliments because I'm just prepared to accept the ridicule. Does that make sense? But, I'm getting used to the compliments my hair receives!

It totally makes sense. I was a bit hesitant too when I first BCed. N I feared how people would react, guys particularly. But for the most part, I've had positive feedback.

Hey Hey JuicesNberries! your hair is wonderful and the name is so fitting. I have to agree with everyone else. Isn't it amazing how we as women feel more self conscious of ourself in front of men. I find myself doing the same thing. A man in the gas station was staring me up and down and then commented on how he like my hair. and i go really are you serious? I dont know why i said that because I like my hair and I think its fly so what I really should have said was Thank you. I know. LOL
