5 AWESOME NIGERIAN BLOGGERS WITH NATURAL HAIR!

 
Hello guys,
  This post is actually a double treat for me because It's about 2 things I am crazy about - blogs and natural hair ;-) I think bloggers are amazing because they share so much of their life, experiences, advice and routines with the world for free. I know I am not alone when I say that I have learnt so much about life, beauty, hair, make-up, style and a lot more, just by reading blogs. Free education from the comfort of my home...nothing beats that! And from my blog name you already know  how I feel about natural hair ;-)) Mix up the 2 and this post was conceived.
  This is a list of 5 of my favourite Nigerian bloggers with natural hair. Mind you, they are not natural hair bloggers per se, they blog about a host of other things (with a sprinkling of hair stuff once in a while). Enjoy!

SISI YEMMIE AKA Doroblogger
I love Sisi Yemmie! Her blog is one of my favourite Nigerian blogs. She blogs about EVERYTHING- Food, Places, Relationships, Hair, Technology, Fashion, you name it. And she does it in the funniest way you can imagine- with a lot of pidgin English thrown in. Did you ever have a friend from Warri in delta state? A fun-having, enjoyment-loving friend whose gist captivates you and prevents you from doing your chores?? Yep, that's Sisi Yemmie. Her style of writing is so fluent and descriptive, its almost as if you were there with her. She has the best reviews (in my opinion) of fun places to go/eat and takes absolutely gorgeous pictures. I live for her MONDAY CHIT-CHAT where she tells us boring folk what she was up to the past weekend.

FOLA'S OASIS AKA Sporty Spice
I stalk Fola's blog because she is really consistent and her content is really superb. She blogs about a host of things- Make-up, Hair, fashion, Books, Music, Healthy living and Fitness. If she were a spice girl she would have been Sporty Spice as she encourages healthy habits, exercise and clean eating. She has a lot of detailed hair and make-up product reviews. I really enjoy her hair crush features where she interviews natural and relaxed hair chicks. You never know what to expect at her blog because she keeps it varied.

LOVE, IFEYINWA AKA Posh Spice
If she were a spice girl I think she would have been posh spice. I love her blog because its easy and laid back. She blogs about Make-up, food(she cooks well), hair, events, travel and a host of other fun stuff. She is the brain behind AJALI, a natural handmade cosmetics company whose products are getting rave reviews from bloggers. She is also the co-founder of  a textured hair extension company called NAZURI CURLS. She's awesome isn't she??? I met her at the recent NITC 8 meet-up and I was really impressed with her beauty and soft spokeness( Lol new word!)

Super cute!


BARBARA1923 AKA Barbara "The Browz"
This gap toothed beauty is an advertising exec, make-up guru and vintage lover. She blogs about make-up, events and talks hair once in a while. She has the most perfect afro puffs. Her hair is so black and fluffy and her eyebrows.... Her eyebrows are to DIE, nay PERISH for. If you are into make-up you will love her blog. But be warned, her blog is guaranteed to cause eyebrow envy :-)

Eyebrows of life!


DRESSED2DNINES AKA Ngozi "The Face" M
As you may have guessed from her blog name, she is a fashion and style blogger. She blogs about clothes, fashion trends and every once in a while she shares scrumptious recipes. She is also an entrepreneur. She retails most of the clothes and shoes she models on her blog. If you are wondering about her nickname take a close look at her face. She's really cute right?

  4. These ladies are all gorgeous with their hair. Yours is beautiful too. I gave up my natural hair because of the time it takes in the morning to get it going and with 2 kids and an hour drive to work, I turned them to locs right away. Loving my locs so far.

    1. Lol! Thanks a lot dear, natural hair is the bomb.com. The thing with hair is that it cannot revert to its natural state if it has been chemically altered with a relaxer. If you want natural hair you will have to grow it out and cut off the relaxed ends. But if you just want healthier relaxed hair you need to do ALOT of deep conditioning. Get a product that is specifically made for damaged hair e.g. Natures gentle touch deep conditioner, Shea Moisture deep treatment masque etc. and then you have to pay close attention to your hair by putting it on a healthy hair regimen. I hope this helps :-)

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…
