Hair Porosity 101

When I started my natural hair journey, porosity was one of the first things I stumbled upon then shelved away thinking it was not-so-important. I was re-introduced to it at NaijaHairCanGrow’s 2014 Salon Day Out  and it made a big difference in the way I cared for my hair after. If you’re struggling with dry hair or wondering why your hair doesn’t retain moisture, you’ll want to stick around and get to the end of this post.

Exploring Epe Mangroves

It’s funny how I’ve lived in Lagos all twenty-something years of my life and there is so much I’m yet to discover about this state. A trip to Epe Mangroves with Cassie opened my eyes to the divide between living in Urban and Rural Lagos, it’s almost like you’re transported to a different state entirely. We planned this trip at different times with different groups of people but eventually ended up going on our own.

A Guy’s Guide To Natural Hair Care For Men

Half of my Instagram DMs are questions from men trying to figure out how to care better for their budding Afro and sometimes I feel inadequate proffering advice on issues I have zero to little knowledge on concerning hair care for men. I got my friend who has had natural hair for as long as I’ve known him, visits a salon more than I do and generally does a good job of taking care of it to answer some questions. If you have more questions, kindly send an email to hello@nappyhaired.com and this post would be updated with answers to it.

Product Review: Rose Water & Tea Tree Facial Toner by Desire Natural Luxury

Rose Water has easily become a staple in my skincare regimen alongside Rosehip oil. When I got this one by Desire Natural Luxury; a made in Nigeria brand that specializes in organic hair and skincare, I was quite excited to try it out because I barely had five pumps left from my old Rosewater. The most shocking thing about this product is it’s price, my old bottle of Rosewater cost me twice the price of this one from Desire Natural Luxury and this one works just as well.

Review: 2017

At the beginning of 2017, I mentioned that I would be doing little to no blogging on certain months because I had a ton of exams to write throughout the year. Sometimes it was frustrating because other aspect of my life suffered – business, relationships and friendships but it was worth it in the end because I passed all my exams and bagged my first license to practice this December. I’ll be sharing the highlights of my months this year and the not-so-good moments too. You can share a bit of yours in the comment section all the way down below, I would love to read.

48 Hours In Ado-Ekiti, Nigeria

During the October Independence long weekend holiday, I dragged my friend along on a road trip from Lagos to Ekiti State. The journey was unexpectedly long and tiring, we even considered going back to Lagos halfway through the journey. At a point, I got scared and had to call fellow blogger Tosinto find out if she had the same experience on her frequent trips to the area. I’ve tried to do a brief breakdown in case you ever want to visit the area, I also listed all the places we visited and put the info of our helpful cab driver; Mr Deji who took us round the town.
