What is Naturals in The City about?
Established 2011, Naturals in the City is a quarterly meet-up in Lagos dedicated to encouraging you towards living better, embracing a (more) natural lifestyle.
What To Do At Naturals in The City?
When you know better, you do better. Our speakers are experienced, knowledgeable persons and they are always so open and generous with their wisdom at our meet-ups! A full statement of the agenda for NITC 14 will be published next week but for now, just know that the conversation will cover Hair, Fitness, Nutrition, and an extra something something! 😉 So keep your eyes on the blog, watch this space!
Everyone is invited! All genders, ages, natural and relaxed.
I love meeting people at Naturals in The City. Love it. Pretty sure you would too!
Come to make friends, and if you are an industry person (natural hair or beauty writer or blogger, a maker of your own products, or interested in retail), NITC is the perfect place to network, so be prepared!
Really, you should make a quarterly date with us to stock up on all your favourite hair products! At NITC, we always have an array of vendors selling hair products and accessories. Come get your product fix, and discover new brands. Our vendors include, but aren’t limited to natural, organic, proudly Nigerian brands making amazing stuff! Come support the movement! It’s not too late to sign up for a stall at NITC. If you’re interested, simply email firstname.lastname@example.org, or email@example.com. You can also call 0909.213.2141
We’ve also got natural and organic vendors at Naturals in the City! Fresh, natural and organic produce will be on sale, at pretty awesome prices, trust us! You don’t need to struggle with questionable veggies at Shoprite that weekend (or ever), no you don’t.
All that learning, shopping and connecting is sure to make you work up an appetite!
Food by Kitchen Butterfly will be available, and you can also get your coffee or pastry fix because we are at Cafe Neo.
At our last two meet-ups, we have collaborated with two charities, and we are definitely continuing with this as a permanent feature of our meet-ups.
Please come prepared to support our charity of choice (details to be announced with the agenda).
Nothing is too small <3

Have you been looking out for this post?
My apologies…I have been really busy, plus my internet service has really been…eh…challenging.
However, good things come to those who wait so here are the official pictures from the NITC that held on the 7th of March, 2015.
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.
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 theKinkandi.wordpress.com. 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!
As promised, here is more information about the 9th edition of our Lagos Natural Hair meet up! It is the last one of the year so we are going to make it count! Our theme this time is Maintaining Hair Length!
