Nigerian Trichologists You Should Know

July 13, 2016

Trichology in a nutshell: The science of hair and scalp and other related problems.  Ideally, a trichologist has been trained and certified to help clients with hair and scalp conditions.

My relaxed hair journey October 2013 to December 2014 {Dr Fomsky}

February 5, 2015

Starting length – Neck length. I cut my hair October 2013 for several reasons: The middle of my hair was now much shorter than the rest of my hair after a bad relaxer experience. I had started texlaxing [intentionally underprocessing] my hair in 2013 and there was now a difference between the old bone straight relaxed hair and the new ‘texlaxed’ hair.

It only feels right to start off with my ongoing natural hair journey which started about a year and 5 months ago. I made up my mind to go natural ‘hair wise’, first of all, not because it is fast…


The TWA: Why I Miss it & Why I Don’t.

Hey guys. I hope you’re all doing splendid! Well, for the 3 weeks or 2 I had my hair out, I found that I got ‘tired’ of it rather quickly. I was always worried about sweating on my scalp which meant I had to wash my hair: I was really busy at the time which meant I literally had no time to wash my hair and when I did, it was later at…
