And The Winner Is…

Last month, I put up information about the ‘Better Than Good Hair’ giveaway, and 15 people responded!

Thank you so much guys for your feedback about the blog. Your thoughts are much much appreciated!

Right now, I wish I were Ellen Degeneres so I could give everyone something, sigh- but as I have only one book, we can only have one winner. 😦

Congrats, Fran! You’re getting a copy of ‘Better Than Good Hair’, the curly hair guide by Nikki Walton, better known to you as Curly Nikki!

I’ll be emailing you shortly to get a delivery address. I hope you like it!




Giveaway! : Better Than Good Hair

Is there any natural that has ever turned to the internet for information and inspiration that doesn’t know Curly Nikki? I SERIOUSLY doubt it. CurlyNikki.com has been a great resource for naturals since its inception in 2008- I love it, and so when Nikki put out her book ‘Better Than Good Hair’ early in the year, I just knew I had to get it. I waited months, till I finally got it- and I wasn’t disappointed.

I should do a review of the book right? But I’m reporting at an NYSC camp in a few hours and the last few days have been hella hectic, I just haven’t had the time. It’s really good, especially if you’re in the first few years of your hair journey. It’s not exclusively for newbies, all stages are covered in the book- and there’s something in it for everyone natural or relaxed. Transitioning, creating a regimen, several illustrated styling tutorials, henna, natural hair care for kids… To say any more would be launching into a review, so I won’t. If you’d like to take my word for it, I’ve got ONE copy of ‘Better Than Good Hair’ for one lucky person! 😀


So, the entire time I’m away at camp, November 5- November 26, this giveaway is open to anyone with a delivery address in Nigeria.

Here’s what you have to do to win:

Leave a comment answering all three questions:

A. Where are you based in Nigeria?

B. Tell me at least one thing you don’t like about the blog or something you’d like to see more of, or something that could be improved

C. How are you following the blog? Bloglovin’? Email subscription? WordPress reader? (I will check!)

Please, suggestions are welcome from everyone, even if you’re not in Nigeria! 🙂

At the end of the month, a winner will be chosen at random, no ojoro!

Thank you sooooo much for reading the blog!

P.S. I may not be able to respond to emails during this period at camp, so if you mail me and I don’t get back to you soon enough, maa binu!

Bye luvvies,
