5 AWESOME NIGERIAN NATURALS YOU SHOULD FOLLOW ON INSTAGRAM

Hi guys,
    Although I was a little slow on the uptake, I finally joined Instagram and in less than an hour afterwards I was already addicted. My raison d'être? Track down awesome naturals with special emphasis on Nigerian naturals, and as one hashtag says: Naturals Dey!!!!!
Here 5 Nigerian naturals I am currently stalking on Instagram:

YAGAZIE EMEZI @yagazieemezi
From what I deduce, Yagazie is an Igbo girl with a Malaysian mom. She's this wild earth child/hippie being, a culturati of some sort and an amazing photographer. But the thing that keeps me stalking her page is to have a glimpse of her wild mane. Which mane ? Well, THIS mane:

Mufasa has got nothing on you girl!





She doesn't really do a lot of styles so if you are looking for style inspiration you might be a little disappointed. But if like me you like to get frospiration, then she's your gal. Her fro is awesome, so thick and lush that it almost wants to make me stick my fingers in there. No homo though.

KEHINDE ADEYEMI @kehindeadeyemii
She  makes me think of Paris Hilton's catch phrase (that's hot! ) each and every time. Why? Well check out that hair: Blazing hot, no? I love her thick, flame coloured fro and the best thing about Kehinde is she can create amazing styles by herself. You may not be too impressed because many naturals do that, but her styles are a little more intricate and neater than the average run of the mill afro puff. See for yourself:


 Crocheted Yarn locs done by herself.

Need I say more.


Curlformer set.




 You are loving her already right? Told you! Her hair colour is a joy to look at. I love that she is not afraid to take risks with her hair. I am living vicariously through her on this hair colour matter.

CURLY BOLA @curlybola
I think she's an artist. That's the only way I can explain how she creates master pieces with her 4c hair. I have watched a couple of her youtube videos and I think shes really really good at this hair stuff. The hair styles she creates are simple yet elegantly stunning. Yes hunty, if you are looking for updos this is your mentor. Take a look at these:






If this isn't art then I don't know what is.

Absolutely stunning I say. 4c hair never looked so good.

SILHOUETTEESTHERTOM @silhouetteesthertom
She's a photographer with an eye for detail. You can tell by looking at the pictures she posts. Interspersed with her potraits are pictures of stunning hairstyles she creates by herself. Her hair is coloured too. One more person to live vicariously through (;




ELLPUGGY @ellpuggy
I found her recently and I'm loving her already. She is a good cook who shares her cooking skills on her other Instagram page @els_colina. According to her Instagram bio she is also a nurse and a blogger. I wonder where she finds time to do all these cute hairstyles. I must warn you though - her hair is coloured too (:













As you can see she's not afraid to experiment with colour. I wish I could be that bold but alas...

There are a lot of other supremely talented Nigerian naturals I follow on Instagram but these ones have me on full stalker mode right now. I love them and I hope you'll come to love them too, as we become fellow stalkers on IG (;

Thanks for stopping by.

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 …
