Jenell of Kinky Curly Coily Me

I have been talking to Jenell for awhile on Twitter (she is BlakIzBeautyful ) and she has such an amazing spirit and has a love for natural hair. She is getting married soon and I am so excited to see the pictures of the big day. Here is her story:

My Big Chop (BC) was on March 26, 2010.  It was one of the most exciting days of my life! I just love my natural hair.  I get so excited to style it, condition it, deep condition it and oil it.  I get excited because my hair is just so beautiful.   Right now I’m in the TWA (Teeny Weeny Afro) stage and contrary to popular belief there are many hairstyle options.

I set my hair every night in 2 strand twists and then I untwist them every morning and wear a twistout.  I take the 1-2 hours to set my hair every night because my natural curl pattern is almost non existent.  My hair is fluffy like a cotton ball.  All the gel, conditioner and curl activator in the world can’t make my hair curl.  The twistouts elongate my hair and give it a nice, supple, soft curl pattern.

When I want loose curls, I set my hair in fat twists.  When I want more defined cork screw curls, I set my hair in smaller twists.

I wear my twistouts without accessories on most days, but sometimes I’ll wear my twistout with head bands or a with hair combs.  When I really want to get creative with my hair, I’ll put a flat twist in the front and add a big flower.
