is curly nikki's hair naturally curly?

Post by CRD7 on 17th February 2011, 2:26 am

Curly Nikki's hair looks like west indian type hair. Water and product doesn't make my hair curly. It makes my hair kinky when dried. Will the same products Curly Nikki uses on her hair work on mine? I've tried hair milk, gel, mousse and none of it makes my hair look good as Curly Nikki's. Mine only looks like an afro....I think my hair type is 4b....HELP

EVeryones hair is different. What works for one may not work for another. You have to find what works for you. I think Curlky Nikki is a 3c/4a (Someone can correct me on that). Do you have curls in the first place? If havent seena curl pattern, you could not have one, or it may need time to grow. You can create coils by doing twist outs and other protective styles.

And your hair can only look as good as your hair. When you compare to other people, you are always going to think that its not good. No comparing, and work with what you have to make it the best. HTH

"west indian " type of hair ? mmm i'm west indian and my hair don't look like hers , every natural out there has a different head of hair that's what makes us unique her hair type may be different from yours so the products she uses aren't going to turn your hair into hers but it will still be beneficial to use for your hair if its a good product , when it comes down to natural hair healthy hair should be our main focus not curl pattern because if you do not have any curl pattern at all when your hair is wet no product you use will be able to create what you do not have as your hair grow longer and get healthier many naturals discover their curls begin to hang down looser and so on so stick it out and Happy growing hope that was helpful

CRD7, cosigning what the other ladies stated. Everyone's hair is different and reacts to products differently. I have tried a few of the products that CN uses and it did absolutely nothing for my hair. I have 4a/4b hair and the products she uses are too light for my hair.

I have learned that the technique for achieving the style you want is more important than searching for the "magical product" that will give you instant curls. For example, when I want to rock a twist out, I have to do a (dry)flat twist instead of regular twists or my hair will puff out into an afro when I finish fluffing. With flat twists, I only have to do a minimum amount of fluffing. I use Darcy's Madagascar styling creme for the hold but once again, it's more about finding the right technique for your hair than the product. When you get a moment check out youtuber Hairmania3000....she gives excellent styles and techniques for 4B hair. HTH

actually, i want to say cn's hair is more 4 than a 3 because she did a post a couple years ago with hair brushed out and it very much resembled diana ross' hair. in fact, i think the name of the post has 'diana ross hair' in it or something.

"west indian" hair?? huh??? am west indian and quite honestly you would think my hair is more 'coolie' cuz am west indian. actually, is so far from the truth (my hair is the coarsest of them all); i have seen more naturals who don't have the mix in heritage that i have and they have wayyyyyyyyyyy more natural curl definition than me. and on the other edge of the spectrum, check out A on beadsbreadsandbeyond...she has my hair texture and she is half mexican and aa. the beauty of being a member of the black diaspara: we are all so different cheers

is more about technique to achieve the curly look than is about product. deep conditioning, moisturizing daily and using some ayurvedic herbs help enhance the shine and curl pattern so much so that people will mistake your hair for a 3 type when u do twist outs, braid outs, flexirods, strawllers, perm rods, banding, etc.

Im not sure what your hair looks like or how long you've been natural. from my experience it took me two years to discover to get healthy natural hair. No two hair types are alike. maybe you should just focus on getting healthy hair and you would find what works for your hair.

OP, you might be confusing Nikki's twist out results for her natural hair pattern.

If you check the info she has in her "about me" section she shows you how she styles her hair and what products she uses. You could start there and see if what works for her works for you too.

I'd say it's the beauty of being Black fullstop! As not all Africans have the same hair either. Smile

you have to find what works for your hair and your hair only - I have tried many products that others suggest, just out of curiosity mostly and because I like to buy hair products (lol)

but no two heads are alike ... you may have to tweak some things to your specification

I cosign to pretty much everyone else as well. I too have west indian blood in me....my dad is west indian) but I've learned from trial and error what is best for my hair. And to be honest, I stay away from the hair typing....I think it just makes the natural hair journey more difficult.

Hmm

I’m a natural 4a mixed with 4b and this website [love it by the way] has helped me along my natural hair journey... I’ve learned that every product advertising as curl enhancing and curl this curl that isn’t going to work on my hair or define my curls because they are not loose such as 3b’s or 3c’s ...

I just had to accept the fact that no matter the type... my hair is beautiful naturally defined curls or not afro

Yeah, don't compare you head of hair to Nikki's or anyone else's because you don't have their genes. You have your own type of hair and even product may not do what you want it to do just because it works on someone elses hair. Be happy with what you have and learn ways to make it look hot!! Very Happy Good luck!!

I also want to point out that you can have the same curl pattern as another person and STILL not be able to use the same products. My curl pattern is similar to Curly Nikki's and my hair would die if I used some of the products she uses which includes mineral oils, silicons, and glycerin sometimes.
