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?

    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 :-)

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 …
