Hello, beautiful!

We moved house to our own domain, THEKINKANDI.COM !

You probably already know this, but this is a formal announcement.

We are still here for you, to encourage you on your hair journey, just at our new home.

Please visit us at THEKINKANDI.COM, all new posts from us are over there 🙂

Our social media handles remain @thekinkandi on Instagram, @thekinkandixx on Twitter and thekinkandi on Facebook.

See you soon?


AB & MeeMee



We Are Moving!

Hello beautifuls!

What’s good? What’s new? 🙂

Pretty sure you agree with us that thekinkandi.com is definitely way cooler than thekinkandi.wordpress.com!

We are happy to announce that very very soon, we will complete the move to our permanent site, thekinkandi.com *sprays confetti*

For this reason, we are going on a very short break, to tidy a couple of things before the move.

We’ll be back on April 11. If you’re already subscribed to our posts by email, you’ll be notified as soon as it’s official! If you aren’t yet, you can sign up to our mailing list over here.

I started this blog when I was transitioning, and the 4th Anniversary of my Big Chop is in May. MeeMee joined officially in 2013. Hard to believe how much time has passed since then! We love this space, and always want you to know how encouraging it is, to be on our hair journeys with you.

At this point in the blog’s life, it’s about you, as much as it is about us, and we want to hear from you.

What do you like about The Kink and I?

What don’t you like?

What helps, and what doesn’t help?

What would you like to see more of on this blog?

We look forward to building more of a community around here, getting to know you guys better. Hopefully, in a couple months, we will host a little meet and greet thing here in Lagos. Would you come?

Webinars have become my thing in the past year or so, and I learn so much every time. The word Webinar, I believe, is short for Web Seminar- like an online class. Having benefited so much from others’, it’s only natural to want to share more with you guys. We’ll stream live, and can answer any questions you have, directly. Is there anything you’d like to learn from us in particular on a Webinar? Think about it, let us know, and we’ll make it happen.

You can leave your answers to these questions in the comments, or you could fill out this very simple survey HERE anonymously. We’d really appreciate this, thank you.


Keep Up With Us!
