Welcome, to a new series! One where we talk to actual hair stylists and get them to give us insider tips on how to maintain or attain healthy hair. I have teamed up with Nat. Mane of Deep, Brown & Kinks for this. She is the best hair stylist I know and I love her work and how she pays attention to detail. I hope to do a lot more with her as the year goes on but we’ll start here.today we deal with the question of heat and how it can be safely used in your hair. There is also an question covering alternatives to heat! Enjoy!
It’s a sure thing. Come and be merry with The Kink and I, Carib Health and I at the tenth Naturals in The City meet-up! This time, our theme is ‘Making the Most of What You Have’. We’ll be talking about how to get the best out of your hair journey, by focusing on your hair’s features, the resources you have, and your lifestyle. No matter where you are or what you are doing right now, you can have the good, healthy hair you want.
It has been said a million times that the Nigerian diet leans very heavily towards carbohydrates, even as the world moves away and eats less. While I am an advocate for not banning carbohydrates completely from our diets, I do have to agree that we need to #lesshandsmall and reduce the quantity we eat.

I tried to get a series started last year on my favourite new products but guess what? I really don’t buy that many new products so I wasn’t able to keep up with it.
This year, I am still determined to bring you what I can, when I can. No pressure on myself, lol!
In no particular order, these are the products that have found their way to my heart and home recently.
Since announcing the Formula Botanica Skincare class in Nigeria, I have received several mails about the training in March and I would like to take a minute to do a post about it, that way most people can get their answers right off the blog. (more…)
This site has been up and running since 2011. That is like 10years in blog years, lol. In that time, we have brought you a great number of posts on hair and natural living in Nigeria. We have also brought the natural hair community together by co-hosting meet ups in Abuja, Lagos and Calabar.
Last week, my friend sat across from me and said “It doesn’t matter if you give children sodas (a.k.a. minerals or soft drinks), as they sometimes need sugar to boost their energy levels”. I hear that a lot. Or variations of that kind of statement. The most ridiculous one has to be that ice-cream is a “healthy snack” because it at least contains milk.
Folks, the time is here again! Ready to meet up and be all about natural hair and natural living? Save the date!
Details coming up soon.
