I have always been pretty reluctant to answer any questions regarding hair growth, hair conditions e.t.c. If you have ever DM’d me or sent me an email, you may have noted either my reluctance or been the recipient of a delicious new option that opened up to me: I refer you to an actual professional whose business is everything hair. Someone who has taken several courses specifically detailing hair and scalp diseases and who has even done an internship with a reputable “senior” in the business. (more…)
If you are wondering why I am talking about something as basic as how to go from relaxed hair to natural hair, kindly let me share a quick story with you. I love watching documentaries and one day, I watched one on the Pound shop. You know, the chain stores in the UK that sell everything under their roof for a quid. The floor salesperson being interviewed was asked what question he gets the most and unbelievably, it was “How much is this?”
One would have thought it was fairly obvious that in a shop that told you upfront that everything was a pound, you wouldn’t have to be asked this question. It made me realize that those that ask me what I sometimes think are obvious questions are not just yanking my chain. They actually don’t know and want to know. And I accept that. (more…)
The 12th edition of NITC has come and gone. I have to say that it was a really good one. Really good. We had the most people attend this meet up than ever before.
While I was unable to bring you details of the meet up prior to it happening, I am here to share the pictures. Yay!
So, this meet up was slightly different because we had certain elements.Continue Reading
A few years ago, a girl with fluffy hair passed me by in ShopRite. I approached her and for the first time outside a meet up, told someone I did not know that I had a blog called Natural Nigerian and that I would like to take her picture to share on my Facebook Page. She obliged.
I still have the photo but for some reason never put it up. Anyway, imagine my pleasant surprise when I ran into her again and she even became a customer and started meet ups (all by herself!).
Anyhoo, long story short, she got married recently and I determined that I was definitely going to do a post on her and her fantastic hair. Enjoy! Warning - there are lots of pictures in this post.Continue Reading
Finally, Enugu here we come!
Nappily Nigerian Girl and I invite you all to the First Natural Hair MeetUp in Enugu tagged "Enugu Naturalistas"
If you have natural hair, relaxed hair, transitioning and are interested in learning how to properly take care of it, then don't miss this great event as we are taking everything from the very top and keeping it simple!
Oils are becoming more and more useful outside the kitchen. In Nigeria, coconut oil has been used as a cosmetic product for a long long time but is now proudly joined by oils like Hemp Seed Oil, Sweet almond e.t.c.
A fairly common problem with oils is that they get spoilt or they go rancid. And we don't want that, so this post is about storing your oils to last.
It is fairly easy to tell when oils have gone rancid - they smell "off"Continue Reading
We 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.

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.
