Meet Up

All the information on November 19th’s meet up

NITC10 (3)

Hello beautifuls!

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.


Natural Hair Meet Up, Lagos, Nigeria NITC9

She was a natural at taking pictures.

The Lagos Hair Natural Meet Up – NITC9 was this past weekend and as usual we put on a good show!

We changed venues for this NITC – for the first time in years. The Social Place in Victoria Island hosted us this time and we loved it! Lush gardens, potted plants dotting the entire venue. That really is my thing – greenery!

We also took on a new co-host: Ekene of Besides looking totally fantastic on the day, she took over handling the talks. We are glad to have her on board! Also, Ebele (Ms_Isioma on twitter) was on hand to help and she, as always, did a fantastic job.

Quick highlights of what went on:

– We set up a hair clinic with a real doctor, taking on hair and scalp issues. This was a big success, yay for us!

– Vendors selling various hair and skin products. We even had OhSo Nutrition there with their amazing smoothies.

– Hair talks for those interested in maintaining their hair with adequate information for every one, even those that have locs.

– Lots of hair admiration, networking and knowledge swapping.

Unfortunately, we forgot all about the product swap but we won’t next time!

I love NITC because it is such a relaxed atmosphere! How many other places can you go where not wearing a scrap of makeup on your face does not make you stand out? The women are so nice to each other! Also, I have made friends at the meet ups that have transitioned to other aspects of my life.

Okay, enough words, here are the pictures!! I took 483 pictures (yes o!) so it took me a while to distill this down to the 50+ pictures you see here.

P.S: We had a few signs and asked people to pick out the ones that best described them. It was such fun!

Thanks to Arit of EbonyLife TV and her crew for being there and for uploading it for those of us that don’t have access to DSTV.

See if you can spot me!! This my anonymous status is going to the dogs sha, lol!

The Naturals in Paradise in Calabar, meet up was this past Saturday. To say that I was immensely pleased with the entire event is an understatement.  Even the one disappointment for me (the Natural Nigerian products did not get to Calabar on time) was not enough to cloud over what a success the meet up was.

Not only did I get to finally eat locally prepared White soup, Afang and Ekpang Nkukwo, I met up with the natural/healthy hair community there – yes, relaxed hair people can also be on a healthy hair journey alongside naturals.

Ekene of The Kink & I  , my fellow organizer, was absolutely amazing. She literally handed out flyers on the road and made all the arrangements for the meet up. The success of the meet up was largely due to her. She also took really good care of me, making sure that I got the food I wanted to eat, saw the sights I wanted to see.

Natural Hair Meet Up Calabar, Nigeria

We began late. It rained quite a bit so people did not arrive early. However, when we did start,  our lovely compere, Lucy (who came all the way from Eket, Akwa Ibom!), got the crowd started by asking them to share their natural hair stories – why they went natural and how they achieved the style they were sporting.
