DIY: Marley Faux Locs

Hey Guys!
After getting a lot of nice compliments on my crochet braids, I decided to push myself a bit further and when a friend mentioned faux locs, I was like why not? However, my eagerness and enthusiasm made me overlook some important things; like time! With our combined efforts, it took us over 8 hours to finish this hair! For someone like me, that is a lot of time to spend and it was exhausting. In the future, I’d rather do this over the weekend and take my time with it.

DIY: Crochet Extensions With Kinky Hair

Hey Guys!
I’ve been itching to put my hair away in a protective style and I was bent on doing the crochet thing with kinky hair. I called Tunmise Naturals Salon and unfortunately the one person who could get it done was out of the country. However, I’d seen a few videos before on doing the crochet extensions and decided to hop out of my comfortable lazy bubble and actually try my hands at it. It was surprisingly easy to do and took me just 3 hours.

Musings

Natural Hair; Fad, Trend or In-thing?

Hello
As I’ve mentioned in a previous
post, I’m a student at the College of
Medicine and we just newly
resumed from our 6 months long
break. At first, I didnt pay attention,
but then as more students
resumed, I began to notice the
number of girls who were sporting
short natural hair-cuts and tiny
fros, some tinted while others still
retained their natural colors.
I’ve also been away from the
social media scene for a while due
to my preparations for my exams
(which I’m finally done with btw!
Whoop!), so while going through
my Tl this past two days, I was
surprised to notice the amount of
females who were asking
questions pertaining to natural hair
styles, products, protective styles
and everything else natural. So it
got me thinking, is natural hair
becoming a movement in Nigeria?
A fashion thing? Are girls going
natural because they want to or
because others are doing it? Are
Nigerian females really ditching
their sleek, permed hair for the fro?
Are they ready for the level of
commitment that comes with
maintaining natural hair?
