Natural Hair Crush: Omoni Oboli at The Maybelline find your shade event

May 7, 2014

I follow a number of Nigerian celebrities on Instagram, Omoni, being one of them. Yes I love my relaxed hair but I couldn’t help swooning for her afro. I don’t know if it’s short enough to be called a ‘teeny weeny afro’ but I simply love her coils. Side note: her contacts and eye makeup are giving me life. 💕 Omoni Oboli is an award-winning Nigerian actress and starred in…

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…

As a follow-up to the initial two posts on transitioning relaxed hair blogs and current relaxed hair bloggers, I have decided to do a post on which natural hair blogs I follow. Here goes nothing: 1. Natural Nigerian, known for her flare for natural living, nutrition etc. 2. Deepbrown & Kinks, my travelling Abuja sis, that collaborates with Natural Nigerian to organise hair meet-ups etc. 3. The Afrikan Butterfly, Ekene,…

Relaxed hair bloggers transitioning to natural hair: what do you think?

May 3, 2014

Hi people. I just learnt that Ebony Princess of Longing4length blog is transitioning to ‘unrelaxed’ hair. I wasn’t surprised anyways because I think this has become a trend in the relaxed hair blogosphere. I have also considered going natural but if I were to do it, I’ll do the big chop. I just don’t have the stomach to handle transitioning. However, I’m staying relaxed for now. Other bloggers who I…

Styling Escapades for my natural hair!!

March 31, 2014

Mahalo people. Since I got rid of the yarn wraps I had in for about 6 weeks, I decided to play around a bit with my hair. Precisely 2 Sundays. I fell into a bit of a routine, where I had my hair in chunky little braids/knots (moisturized my ends in them) and tied scarves all through the week and as Sunday came, BAM! My first adventure was bantu knots!…

Being a Natural Has Made Me…

March 30, 2014

Honestly, being a natural has made me more aware, more concerned about my body as a lady. I know many ladies already care about their bodies with their relaxed or texlaxed hair but that became more of a reality to me when I cut my hair and decided to start over. Being a natural has made me bolder. I mean, most of my family literally could not believe my guts…

My Natural Hair Regimen

March 28, 2014

Ah, the research I had to do to get this post together. Somehow, doing a regimen post was a biggie for me. I don’t know why but I had to ask my awesome ‘coil friend’, Ekene of Thekinkandi.wordpress.com to explain what it should look like considering that I’m still a learner. LOL. Biko, this is not the intro she told me to do o. I just like a little suspense…

Detangling hair: Wet versus Dry?

March 4, 2014

Woohoo! Nothing particularly exciting but oh well. I finally took down my yarn wraps last week, making it 6 weeks of protective styling. I genuinely wanted to stretch it to 8 weeks but the build-up at my roots and a new style I’ve been eyeing, hastened my fingers to work. And it took me about 1 week of lazying around till I finally unraveled all the wraps on my head….

My experience with Yarn Wraps as a protective style!!

February 17, 2014

In the bid to break my cycle of kinky twists extensions as my usual go-to style, I decided to do something different: yarn wraps! I did the ‘research’, got pictures online and decided on which stylist could best accomplish the style for me. So I went off to the market, bought the pack of wool, washed and got my hair ready for the styling and then chose a date for my…
