Featured Natural: Nikki

Hi, My name is Nikki and I have been natural since Jan 2010. I don’t think I’ll ever go back!  I try to keep my regimen pretty simple.  I shampoo w/ Out of Africa Shea butter soap once every 2 weeks and co wash in between. Acv/honey rinse as needed.  I use Desert Essence Coconut conditioner as my co wash, rinse out and deep conditioner.  Leave in of choice is Kinky Curly Knot today then I seal w/ castor oil or my shea butter mix then twist. I’m still learning and enjoying every bit of it.

Thanks, Nikki for sharing.

Natural Hair on Essence’s 40 Most Beautiful Covers

15 Nov

Essence recently compiled the 40 most beautiful covers in honor of their 40-year anniversary. Several of the covers featured locks, afros, braids, and other natural styles.  Here are some of the covers that were selected:

My favorites are #2 and #12. I love the style of the braids in the second one, and I have always thought Alek Wek (#12) and her short cut were beautiful. I hope there will be plenty more images of women with natural hair on upcoming Essence covers.
