If you follow my blog you’d know I’m a proud wiggie! I have about 7 wigs. I’ve been wearing wigs even before it became a trend. I have a mum who is a wig lover so I guess I learnt that from her. About 3 years ago when I first went natural it was difficult for me to be spontaneous with hair-dos. I felt I was limited to my short coils. It wasn’t long after that I made my first wig. I did it myself, it was wonky but I found a way to rock it regardless.
There is a myth that wigs are for old women and it ages you, so first let me debunk that ^.^ Anything would age you if you don’t find a flattering version of it, from clothes to hair. The key to wearing wigs is to find styles, lengths and colors that suit your complexion and face shape.
For instance my face is oval, hence shoulder length and Layered long hair looks great on me. So I know to invest in bobs/curly hair and long layered styles.

1. Cantu Hydrating Cream conditioner for Natural hair: I love love this product! It gives my hair amazing slip and wakes up my curls. It’s very moisturizing too. I use it right after I’m done shampooing and it’s just lovely. I use it to detangle and add my deep conditioner to retain moisture. I leave this […]

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.[caption id="attachment_6761" align="alignnone" width="660"] A living proof that hair grows with patience!! 🎉🎊🎉🎉🎉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 😀. 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 hehehe🙈. 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. 🎉🎊🎊🎉 P.s I’d be accepting freebies, goodie bags and endorsements to celebrate this small but worthy mile stone 🙊🙈💃🏿💃🏽 mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org I love you 💜#ItsJustHair#NaturalHairJourney @naijanaturals[/caption]
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.

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.[caption id="attachment_6756" align="alignnone" width="660"] Absolutely feeling like Mickey LOL[/caption]
Hurray to me!
Cheers to the next phase of the journey!
1. ORS CREAMY ALOE SHAMPOO: I’m one to pick shampoo over conditioner any day, simply because shampoo guarantees that all the dirt is lifted off my scalp. I love this product because it’s very moisturising even though it’s a shampoo. it doesn’t leave my hair stringy or dry. The shampoo is creamy and gives the […]
Hello! Hope you all are well, this weekend I took out my plaits (which is often beneath my wigs) and hung out with my friends. I try to wash my hair at least once a week but lately I’ve been so lazy. Since I’m currently away from home, I do not have my wash day […]
Hello! This video is about Anna hair UK. I have on three bundles of the 6A Peruvian straight in 16″,18″, 20″ and a 14″ closure. I’ve been rocking this hair so much, and I love it. I decided to fix it on a wig cap for maintenace and versatility. Do enjoy my full review, watch, […]
How has your week been? Mine has been great, Thank God!
With the fuel scarcity still ongoing I’ve still managed to fill my tank and go about my daily business.
This week, I knew I’d be quite occupied so brushing my hair daily won’t really work. I decided to braid my hair instead. I used the regular ‘expression’ extensions. I wanted the braids scanty and long, the stylist got it just right.
This is also the first time I’m braiding my year in over 3 years. It didn’t hurt and I’ve just been loving the ease and versatility.
My outfit today is casual…. I have on a T-shirt from Jeffery Coen which I would be reviewing in the next post. This is one of two!
Hope you’re doing well…..
I wish you an awesome weekend ahead. Thank you for all the kind comments in my previous posts, You all are awesome!
