This Saturday June 28 is not going to be an easy one for the people of Lagos.
So much buzz, plenty action, you don’t want to miss!
Naturals In The City 8.
The theme for this meet-up is ‘Getting Creative’. In addition to the usual; hair talk, hair products & accessories fair, and plenty hairspiration, there’ll be a product swap (bring gently used products, not more than halfway gone, to swap for something else you may like). You could also get your hair styled right there for FREE, by people from Apples and Oranges salon, provided that your hair is washed and ready for styling.
This time though, NITC is not totally free. To get in, you’ll need a ticket and this is just going to cost you a simple Five Hundred Naira (N500) pere. Your ticket automatically enters you into a giveaway!
SO much planned, I think you want to be early. The party starts at 1:30pm! 🙂 Same old venue: Omenka Gallery, 24 Ikoyi Crescent off Osbourne Rd, Ikoyi, Lagos.

Loc Appreciation Day, Lagos 2014.
Locitude in collaboration with Savvy Chic Hair Beauty Hub, and some more friends, present to you the first Loc Appreciation Day in Lagos. Join them and other loc heads in other cities round the world, as they celebrate, appreciate and educate people about dreadlocks.
This is such a great initiative, because even as the natural movement grows, dreadlocks still get a lot of flak in our society, and not nearly enough support. As a hopeful loc head (give me 5 years forreal) I wish I could be in Lagos for this, but sigh, I’m stuck miles away.
The theme of this meet is ‘Wetin Be Locs Sef?’, here’s what to expect:
– A short video- ‘What are Locs?’
– Panel discussion featuring Locitude, Celebrity loctician/ hair dresser Jatto, and a loc sister with waist long locs.
– Vendors with loc products you would never have been able to find in Lagos
– Maintenance tips
– Styling tips
– DIY tutorials
– Product tips
– And omg there’s more!
For loc love, loc conversation, loc education, loc support, inspiration, motivation and more, kindly join them ladies and gentlemen, at A White Space, Lagos. 58 Raymond Njoku street, Ikoyi. Time: 4:30- 8pm. Entry is free!
Any questions, find @Locitude on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram.
Midas Naturals Pre-Launch Event!
Midas Naturals is a natural hair product company offering “goodness in hair care”, based in the UK but run by one of our very own! I’ve had the privilege of trying out some of their products, and I’ll be reviewing one soon. On July 1, Midas Naturals launches officially, and you’ll be able to buy the products at different locations.
However, Saturday 28 June is the Pre-Launch Event. There, you get a first look at the brand, and a chance to buy samples of the product line. You also get a free sample of crambe oil with every purchase. Midas Naturals products are free of sulphates, parabens, silicones, mineral oils and DEA.
Please, if you can, stop by to show your support, between the hours of 10am and 6pm, at The Event Centre, CLAM, Plot 1-5 CLAM Avenue, Omole, Ikeja. (Omole Phase 1 busstop, Isheri-Ojodu road)

Oya, AB. How do you suggest I divide myself into 3?
So much to do in so little time, I know.
If you’re planning to get to all 3 events, here’s how I’d do this.
Midas Naturals Pre-Launch Event, Naturals In The City 8 and then Locitude. It’s not difficult!
Have fun guys! I’m quite jealous I’m not in Lagos and I hope you make it to at least one! As always, all hair types are welcome to all 3 events!
