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.

The best way to comb your natural hair

Hi there,
  Combing natural hair has always been a problem. There is a lot of pain involved but that's not the only challenge combing presents. Combing your hair is a major cause of hair breakage, remember those balls of hair you remove from your comb each time you comb?  Here are some tips to help you minimize breakage from combing:

Use the right tool
 Never use a fine tooth comb for your hair. It is better to use a wide toothed comb. This will reduce hair breakage. If you must use a fine tooth comb ensure you have thoroughly detangled and combed with a wide tooth comb first. Also make sure the teeth of the comb is seamless to avoid ripping out your hair as you comb.





Comb your hair only when it is damp
 Your hair is weakest when it is dripping wet and so combing it then will cause it to break.On the other hand combing your hair when it is dry will also break it off because your hair is not as flexible as it should be. When your hair is damp it can better withstand the force of…

How to create a a sleek faux bun with short natural hair!!!!

Hi people!
   So its been a while since my last post and I apologize. I have been all kinds of busy but I have got something really cool for you all today. I haven't really done any hairstyle posts on this blog  because in my bid to retain length I just cornrow and throw on a wig. I have been doing that for months with the random Afro-puff thrown in once in awhile but this week I just wasn't  in the mood for any of my wigs. I decided to finally do something I have been dying to do: a faux bun!! Its super easy just follow the steps below and you'll be rocking your faux bun in a couple of minutes :-)

                           Preparing my hair

I stretched my hair with my cornrows first. I took out the braids then moisturised and sealed:

 I sectioned my hair into 2 parts. I started from the front section. I added some Ecostyler gel, brushed it lightly with a toothbrush and pulled it into a bun on the top of my head:

 After I was done with the front, I brushed up the back and…

APHOGEE 2 STEP PROTEIN TREATMENT REVIEW

Hi guys,
   I don't know if I have mentioned it before but I have been shedding like crazy for months. I don't know how I still have any hair left on my head. My hair is also breaking and doesn't seem to retain moisture as much as it used to. After a really terrible day of detangling( I use a wide tooth comb now) and I knew I had to get help. I have seen quite a few Instagram testimonials on the Aphogee 2 Step Protein Treatment so I decided to try it out. Its a hard protein treatment that promises to stop breakage and shedding. I read a few reviews online first then I got right into it.










     STEP ONE: PREPARATION
I thoroughly detangled my hair. I did this because the treatment makes hair very hard so to prevent severe tangling and breakage during the process its best to detangle first.Shampooed with the ORS creamy Aloe shampoo. Its best to shampoo the hair before applying a protein treatment to get the best results.Sectioned my hair into 4 twists to make my hair easier …
