If you follow me on Instagram, you might have seen my announcement for the fourth and final Get Wigged Nigeria class for this year. Ella and I would be going all out and spilling all our wig making tricks and hacks in this class. Also, we’ve included new learning points, so if you’re in Lagos, make it a date with us! As usual, it would be a small class so we can give everyone our undivided attention, the seats would be limited and would be given on a first-to-pay basis.

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;
It’s the season of LOVE !!!❤️
Several plans have been made for this day whether it’s a girl’s night out, going on a date with that special someone or with your family. Valentine is about appreciating the people you love, showing love, and being happy. For the ladies, it isn’t really easy when trying to figure out what to wear, what hairstyle to do or how your makeup will look for that special occasion but here’s a look you can pretty much rock without overwhelming your partner. Remember keeping it simple and beautiful! You want to look good but in a way that your partner would still recognise you.
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.

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.
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
I got The Kinky Apothecary whipped batter and grapeseed oil during fashion week last year as a party favor from fashion house; GREY. I forgot about these in the whole excitement of fashion week and got around to using them early this year. The whipped batter is EVERYTHING.
