Yes? This post is for you! We’ve got a number of Natural hair product retailers in Nigeria, and the list continues to grow. However, at this time, most of the stores are in Lagos and Abuja. They do make efforts to deliver, but for circumstances beyond their control (i.e. the general lack of confidence in our national postal service), I know delivery costs can be more than a little discouraging when you’re not making a bulk purchase. Paying 1500 to ship a bottle of conditioner that cost you 2500 Just. Does. Not. Make. Sense. Odion from Benin City wrote me yesterday. She’d like to be a middleman, to help organise the pooling of resources for women in Benin who’d like to order hair care products (natural or relaxed) from stores in Lagos or elsewhere. Simply put, if you are interested in getting hair products from Lagos or Abuja or anywhere out of Benin, you can now consider doing it together with other people, thus spreading the cost of delivery, bringing it down to a minimum. Also, would you be interested in having a meet-up in Benin? She’d like to know.
Please help share this post, and send it to your friends in Benin. Remember, little drops make a mighty ocean! Let’s help each other! Thank you! 🙂
AN UPDATE: This arrangement worked for a while, until Odion had to relocate, and for this reason, I’ve taken her information off the blog. If you’d like to start a Benin group, or a group in your city, let me know. firstname.lastname@example.org
