Lagos Natural Hair Meet Up – Naturals In the City 7 – In Pictures

The quarterly Natural Hair Meet Up in Lagos, NITC, held on the 30th of November. This was the 7th edition. It was very well attended...as usual and I loved meeting new people, catching up with my usual folks and ogling hair 'dos. I apologize greatly to those who did not find seats (at a point it was full inside where the hair workshop was taking place AND full in the garden where the vendors were set up). From a numbers perspective, we hit an all time high! Thank you!

I took so many many pictures that it has been tough choosing which will make it to the blog as well as annotating them all. I believe I have over 60 pictures here which is a lot! 

Special thanks to Ebele for taking charge of the Product Swap Segment. Tope Jobi of Chez Moi and Hadassah for leading the discussion after the viewing of the Kickin' It with the Kinks documentary. Cynthia and Mundia of KIWTK for trusting us to do a good job of showing their video. Bunmi Roberts of Tunmise Natural Hair Salon for donating 3 lovely (high quality) T-shirts for the giveaway. Nneka E. for facilitating things. Lolo for helping me out when I was getting pulled in a million different directions! Lanre Kosoko for gifting me with a Rich Coffee Body Scrub and Whipped Cocoa Butter.

Lastly, thank you to all those that literally travelled to be there. Yes, there were people there from Iju, Abeokuta and Ife.  I had a fantastic time and I hope you did too!

    mixed feelings about this post…everyone looks sooooo lovely, the natural hair population is seriously growing, babe in orange looks stunning, makes me want to start all over again! so many vendors popping up now especially those that offer proudly nigerian products, I am chuffed. Then again, i missed out on all the fun :(. where can i watch the KIWTK’s video biko?
    Good job as always! cant wait to come back and be a part of this.

      Did you have to mention…”Not like dem brazillian hair wearing ladies”….I am a natural, but I find this so distasteful! Why the reference to ladies who choose to use weaves? How does it affect you? SMH

    Could you please schedule the next event around holiday time (Christmas, easter, summer) so that those of us who live outside Lagos or Nigeria can attend. Thanks. :)

    WOW. When I traveled to Nigeria (which wasn’t to long ago) it seemed as if there were NO naturals…..Alot of my family members were pressuring me to get a relaxer! In fact, I didn’t even know Nigeria had hair care products for naturals…..where is all of this at? Because it seems as if its not in Imo state;(

    Beautiful pictures. I was there too and I enjoyed the people, the atmosphere and the information sharing. I also bought me few products. Looking forward to another edition.

    Thanks for inspiring us to naturalness!
