5 Nigerian Hair Care Brands You Should Know About

The first thing that proved to be a problem for me when I returned to  natural hair was where to get affordable  natural hair products that would work well on my hair, I curated some really good stores and salons in The Directory but that wasn’t enough because at the time they had mostly foreign products. Fast forward almost 3 years later and there are so many available products made in Nigeria by Nigerians for Nigerians, it doesn’t get any better than that really. In no particular order, here are my 5 Nigerian hair care brands you should know about;

DIY: Wigs

 

One of my resolutions for this year is to try more protective styles and my go-to is wigs. They’re perfect for protective styling and still give you access to your hair to wash, deep condition and have all the necessary treatments on weekends or at your free time. If you’re are a beginner at wig making, you might want to try making wigs using the flip over method or bonding glue to help with the closure. There is a video at the end of this post to guide you. When you feel more confident, you can try using the lace closure.

Brazillian Wool Twists

Early this year I heard of Brazillian wool but didn’t pay any attention to it until a friend used it to braid her hair. It was very ‘different’ for sure. The texture is silkier, smoother and feels more like kanekalon hair than the regular wool, it mimics kinky hair when braided/twisted. I had to explain to quite a number of people that it wasn’t, only two people recognized it as Brazillian wool. Apparently, it has been in use in other countries but only recently in Nigeria. It can be used for hairstyles like  twists, braids, faux locs, just about anything you would use regular braiding hair for.

Hair Update + GIVEAWAY

 

Type/Texture

4C. My coils only show up on wash days and that’s fine. Someday when I’m brave enough, I’ll try a wash and go and see how that turns out for me. I still have fine thin strands; there’s no going back on that. The hair at the back of my head doesn’t give me any trouble but I’m still at war with my edges. I still use my eyepencil over my edges sometimes. You can learn how to do that by clicking this link http://bit.ly/1KTPkwm

5 Things I’m Loving This Week

 

1.) Nigeria

This past week made me really proud of my country. I usually like to remain neutral on the subject of politics because I’m not well versed in it, but seeing the way Nigerians came together in the days leading to the announcement of our new president sparked something in me.
