I’ve tried to answer most of the questions about my big chop in this post but you can send me a mail firstname.lastname@example.org if you have further questions.

Last December, I went on a group trip organized by Jadesola of The Bourgie Life to visit the renowned Olumo Rock. Now if you had your primary and/or secondary/high school education in Nigeria, chances are you’ve been to Olumo Rock on one of those organized school excursions.

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.
