It has been said a million times that the Nigerian diet leans very heavily towards carbohydrates, even as the world moves away and eats less. While I am an advocate for not banning carbohydrates completely from our diets, I do have to agree that we need to #lesshandsmall and reduce the quantity we eat.

Our Valentine day’s giveaway winner is Ogechi O. Yay!! She was contacted on Valentines day and has since used her N10000 voucher! Congratulations, Ogechi!
I would like to thanks everyone that participated and assure you that there will be more giveaways soon. Please stay tuned!

This site has been up and running since 2011. That is like 10years in blog years, lol. In that time, we have brought you a great number of posts on hair and natural living in Nigeria. We have also brought the natural hair community together by co-hosting meet ups in Abuja, Lagos and Calabar.

I hear that a lot. Or variations of that kind of statement. The most ridiculous one has to be that ice-cream is a “healthy snack” because it at least contains milk.
Folks, the time is here again! Ready to meet up and be all about natural hair and natural living? Save the date!
Details coming up soon.
