Been a while I did a post on my natural hair, so here!
My hair is 4 years plus, I currently have fairly long hair ( past my shoulders when stretched) and I barely wear my hair out in other styles besides my bun. If I’m not having my bun, its 10-12 plaits for wigs or I twist it all up.
All week I’ve been experiencing shrinkage so I just decided to have it done instead of daily manipulating it.
I went to my friend McCarthy’s salon for a quick wash and style.
I opted for some side plaits and mini twists. Using just my hair with no extensions.
I call it my pre christmas hair, I plan to wear it for three weeks to a month! My life is so busy at the moment that I literally have no time for hair, makeup or daily beauty routines. I just want to shower, get dressed and leave home.
I brought along my array of hair butters and pudding, but to my surprise the stylist felt it would weigh down my hair so she used only a lock and twist gel to twist .
Once I washed my hair it was left damp /semi dry , she applied a menthol based hair cream to my scalp (Damatol) and began to twist. When the process was done, she applied some hair sheen and that was it.
I felt so young when she was done, took years off my face and got lots of compliments. I’m so excited about this hair-do because its full yet light weight, lasts long and when I’m bored I can wear my wigs over it.
Duration: 3hours (start to finish), one stylist.
Salon: First impression McCarthy salon, E338 Ikota shopping complex V.G.C Ajah Lagos

Been a wee while, I’ve had the most interesting November so far! Naija Naturals partnered with Shea moisture Nigeria for a week-long celebration and product launch, it was so fantastic! it consisted of three events and a three-day trip to Ghana (VLOGS ON MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL ALREADY).
First it started with the distribution of invites to invited guests for the master class on Friday November 3rd 2017 at the oriental.
It was an afternoon of panels, games, food, music and shopping. I hosted a session on DIY hair care and anchored a DIY BATTLE. On my panel were Ekene of the kink and I, Favor olugu, Tuke Morgan and Nancy Isime. I got to ask them questions, and learn about their hair experiences.
It’s no news that I’m a DIY person, anything I can do with my hands I won’t pay for it…. . So I’m having my wedding party soon, and I’ve been up to plenty, this is just one of the many things I’m doing my self. I’ve decided to share the videos periodically so you all can also use these cost saving tips for your wedding. And to those who have been asking if I’m still having a Traditional/”white” wedding, I guess this answers your question lol thank you for watching. Please leave your comments, I love to hear from you.
I promise to be back to text blogging soon with a bang!
