Whoa! How time flies! I remember my two years anniversary I shared HERE It’s so surreal seeing how growth occurs. I shared a time line on my Instagram yesterday and here it is below! From 2012 when I did the big chop till now.


A living proof that hair grows with patience!! ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰HAPPY 3 YEARS NATURAL TO ME! I went to the barber’s shop on October 6th 2012 to cut off all my hair. My parents hated it lol my brothers laughed at me. But I rocked every darn stage with confidence, even though deep down I was a bit uncertain if this choice was for me. I coloured it, Jerry-curled it and did the absolute most….Even with my then sparse edges ๐Ÿ˜€. But I Inspired my self with natural hair pages, stories and other people on the journey. Here we are 36months after! Better length, texture and of course better brows hehehe๐Ÿ™ˆ. I’m happy and don’t regret the decision to go natural even though it’s a more expensive choice in all honesty. Cheers to another three years to come. ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽŠ๐ŸŽ‰ P.s I’d be accepting freebies, goodie bags and endorsements to celebrate this small but worthy mile stone ๐Ÿ™Š๐Ÿ™ˆ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฟ๐Ÿ’ƒ๐Ÿฝ mail me at lynnjaphet@gmail.com I love you ๐Ÿ’œ#ItsJustHair#NaturalHairJourney @naijanaturals

I filmed a video yesterday about a few tips I’ve learnt so far, It should be up later tonight, I get so many questions about this natural hair journey and I try to answer as honest as possible. I even have an entire column on my blog just for hair bants, see HERE.

But for the sake of those who don’t like scrolling through posts, I’ve decided to make this blog post interactive. If you have any question or comment about the natural hair journey please feel free to ask below, I’d be dedicating the rest of the day to answering questions. If you can’t seem to comment, tweet at me @LLynn_J or on instagram @Lynnjaphet I’d certainly respond.

I had the intention of typing a long post but I changed my mind. The ball is in your court! so Ask and I shall revert ASAP.

Absolutely feeling like Mickey LOL

Hurray to me!

Cheers to the next phase of the  journey!




  1. I love you hair. My hair is one year and 6 months old. It is quiet healthy. With shrinkage it’s neck length and stretched its shoulder length (I guess, I don’t straighten my hair).
    But one problem I have is my hair is terribly dull. You know when you see people like naptural85 and there is this beautiful sheen to their hair. I want that so bad. Pls what can I do To get shine to my hair.
    I want that more than length sef.
    Thank you.

  2. Congrats on making it to 3 years. You said it best . . . “hair grows with patience”. Your hair looks very lush. How did you get your hairline back? For me, leaving it alone brings it back from disaster.

  3. I sooo cannot wait for my hair to look as awesome as this, mine is just over a year and problem is I dont really have time for all the natural hair products. Its just getting fuller everyday and I doubt its stretching out much. I just try to do as much rubber (African thread) as I can and the results are really cool.
