My top 5 natural hair blogs

Hi guys,
     I love blogs. I think they make they make the world a easier place to live with there being blogs about everything under the sun. There are how-to blogs, where-to  blogs, what-to blogs and countless others. My best blogs are natural hair care blogs. I follow quite a lot of them and I am the better for it. Here are 5 of my favourite natural hair blogs :

BLACKGIRLLONGHAIR
Top on my list will be bglh! I absolutely love this blog. They feature naturals with the most amazing heads of hair every day, when I say every day I mean EVERYDAY! If you need natural hair inspiration look no further. They even do features on natural celebrities too. There are several posts each day about hair techniques, styles, maintenance, products and all things natural hair related. There are several contributing posters and there are links to their blogs so your repertoire of hair blogs can keep growing.

CURLYNIKKI
This blog has it all - natural hair maintenance, techniques, research findings et al. The founder of this blog is a natural sister who is also the author of one of the best selling natural hair books ever written-    Better than good hair.

AFRICANATURALISTAS
I love this blog because its African. It has alot of great info on natural hair.I dont think there is any natural hair issue not covered on their blog. The team of writers are mainly Nigerian with one Kenyan and a Ghananian. They feature Nigerian naturals too and I find that so refreshing especially as natural hair isnt quite the norm in Nigeria these days.

THE KINK AND I
I adore AB the blogger behind Thekinkandi. She makes my day with her sweet and witty posts. She makes natural hair so much fun. Her product reviews are always on point in my opinion. Her blog also has a directory which offers a list of shops that  carry natural hair products in Nigeria.

KINKYCURLYCOILYME
Last but not least is this blog. Its packed full of good stuff, like hair tutorials, diy mixtures, product reviews, hairspiration and lots more. As you read through their well researched articles you will discern that they mean business. I love how everything hair is captured in an easy to relate way after all thats why we read blogs right?


There are countless other blogs I follow but these for me are my very best in terms of content, consistency and content. Yes I know I repeated the word :-)
I hope you will come to love them as I do.

PRODUCT REVIEW : SHEA MOISTURE JBCO STRENGTHEN, GROW & RESTORE LEAVE IN CONDITIONER

Hi guys,                                                             It's been ages since I've done a product review right? Sorry about that. I have bought tons of products since the last time but I haven't had time to do a proper review of each one. Its better later than never not so? I'm starting with the SHEA MOISTURE JBCO STRENGTHEN, GROW & RESTORE LEAVE IN CONDITIONER (now that's a mouthful isn't it?) I bought sometime in July.

PRODUCT REVIEW // ORS REPLENISHING CONDITIONER

Hi guys,                                                                                                                                                      I'm here with another review. This time its the ORS REPLENISHING CONDITIONER. Do not let the name fool you, it's actually a deep conditioner and not a wash out conditioner. Here's my honest review:

CHEAP TRICKS // HEAT BASED DEEP CONDITIONING WITHOUT A STEAMER/DRYER

Hi guys,
     I hope you all are doing great. I have been thinking of how to make my blog better and I came up with a few ideas. I am thinking of introducing new series like the one above - cheap tricks which will feature once a month. It will contain tips and tricks I have learned along the way to make your hair journey much more affordable. I hope you will all benefit from it.
   My first trick is: Heat based deep conditioning without a steamer or dryer. As you may know deep conditioning and heat (moist heat) go hand in hand.  Infact I am yet to find any deep conditioner that does not recommend conditioning with heat. For example SHEA MOISTURE'S DEEP TREATMENT MASQUE (which I have reviewed on this blog) recommends using heat for 30 minutes while ORS REPLENISHING CONDITIONER (review coming up soon) recommends 10-15 minutes with heat. Why you may ask. Well the heat opens up your cuticles which makes absorption of nutrients much more effective and also a lot faster. However if you ar…
