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.
Last week, my friend sat across from me and said “It doesn’t matter if you give children sodas (a.k.a. minerals or soft drinks), as they sometimes need sugar to boost their energy levels”. 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.
Valentine’s day is around the corner bringing with it the elections and of course, the celebration of love. We have been feeling the love and would like to show it back in some way. That is why we are giving away a N10000 voucher for one lucky winner to our store! (more…)
As you probably know, I make my own hair and skin products and have done so for years. Quite a number of people have asked me to teach them how to do so and I have never been able to do so. Why? Because I always want things done just so – to the strictest standards. (more…)
A few months ago, I received a mail from a reader asking me for the English names of some items she had come across in a Northern Nigeria market. A few mails back and forth and I decided that I definitely had to interview her so that I could share with you some of her natural lifestyle practices. Easy to incorporate into your daily life and it will make a big impact not only in your life but also in the environment. The first thing you will probably notice is that Katharine is very tall. Lol! Actually, you will notice that she is an Oyinbo so we are making her an “honorary” Natural Nigerian! Make sure you read it all, she shares some really interesting things about how we can live Naturally in Nigeria.
I find that a lot of people seeking a healthier oil alternative are reaching for Canola Oil. It is certainly marketed as healthy oil but as with most things, we must always ask questions. Here is what my small research yielded. (more…)
My daughter now has to stay in school for an extra hour after closing time so that she can participate in extra-curricular activities. For me, that means giving her an even more substantial meal because that extra hour means that she will be spending lunch time in school and will be starving by the time she gets home.
A good choice for a filling meal is Pasta and rather than just regular pasta, whole wheat pasta is sooooo much better.
That is the inspiration for today’s Healthy School Lunch Idea.
