Last Saturday at the Nigerian Natural Hair & Beauty Show!

Hey guys!

How was your weekend?

I spent my Saturday at the Kinky Apothecary’s Nigerian Natural Hair & Beauty Show. I was there for six, seven hours and it was busy, busy, busy! Beautifully organised, a job well done by Nibi and her team! All six of our special guests were really lovely on stage and in person. I met new people, met some people I already knew for the first time (hi, Chinwe Igbo Curls!) and there were plenty old familiar faces as well. For a recap, and for the many interesting tips I gleaned that could be helpful to you, keep your eye on the blog this week. You knowwww, you could subscribe to the blog by email so you don’t miss a thing!

I took A LOT of pictures, and that’s why we are here today. Continue reading
