Healthy Hair Workshop NigeriaWe are really excited to bring you this workshop which is for everyone – Natural and Relaxed. Our goal is to help you on your healthy hair journey. Once you have this sorted, long hair can follow, hairlines may be restored and who knows, you may adopt a much more healthy lifestyle. We see a lot of positive outcomes.

I mustn’t forget to add that we will be creating a private community for all attendees and that for 2 months after the class, you will still have access to the “tutors”. Yep, we are that determined to see that you really benefit from this class. Trust me, this will be money well spent.

Kunle Afolayan grooming daughter hair natural

I came upon this picture on Facebook recently and re-posted it on the Natural Nigerians Facebook group with the question: Does your husband know how to fix his daughter’s hair? Is he involved in any way? I hardly got an answer because the ladies were busy oohing and ahhing about it being Kunle Afolayan in the picture. Lol! I am inclined to try to have this conversation again so here we go: (more…)

Please fill out this fun, short survey to learn more about the workshop and to help us get to know you! Thanks.

A lot of people approach me (via social media, telephone, email, at meet ups and pretty much anywhere they can find me) to ask questions about their hair.

And not just one or two questions but they have LOADS of questions about how to embark or maintain a healthy hair journey. Some of these questions range from the simple – what kind of comb should I use; to the the more complicated – how do I keep my hair truly moisturized.

Green washing

I was at a place in Lagos last week. They had on sale, loads of their branded hair products and all of them had boldly written on them,  “Eucalyptus” or “Castor Oil” or “Aloe Vera” e.t.c. You know, all those buzzwords that people that are pursuing a natural lifestyle feel drawn to. I randomly took one of the products off the shelf and turned the packaging around to read the ingredients. That is my knee jerk reaction when I come across a new product. I can’t remember it all right now but the product with the Castor Oil written boldly in front of it had ingredients listed something like this:

Parafinum Liquidum, Microcrystalline Wax, Petrolatum, Castor Oil, Tea Tree Oil, PEG-75 Lanolin Oil, Parfum.

My Regimen - Shampooing A question oft asked is what my Natural Hair regimen is. I haven’t shared it in totality in the past because

  • I am such believer in Keeping it Simple (K.I.S.S) that my regimen is at best, boring.
  • My regimen has not changed much over the last few years.
  • I make so many of my own products myself that even if I were to mention them it will be of no benefit to anyone that wants to use the same products. There would be more value if they were commercially available.

ALL that said, I have decided that I will share my regimen all the same. Hopefully, someone out there will benefit from it. Since I want to go in-depth, I am going to create a mini-series beginning with shampooing! (more…)
