cisca kinks

Naturals In The City Lagos is one Natural hair event I have always wanted to attend. When I got wind of 'NITC16', I was so happy but fast forward to the day of the event, I couldn't attend because I had to go to work that weekend :(
Then I prayed to God to make me available for the next one which I was, Yaay!. I made sure my dress was ironed, shoe shined,

PRODUCT REVIEW: KUI Tea Tree & Cinnamon Leave-in Conditioning Mist.

Hey guys,
What's poppin?
I will be sharing with you a review on one product I have come to like. I attended a sample party co-hosted by Savvychic beauty hub and KUI care on December 3rd, 2016. KUI care is a Nigerian company set to provide affordable products for natural hair and in this present economy, we need to focus more on our products to grow the naira.
There was food to eat, product demos, talks on natural hair, picture time and sale of products.
Out of all the KUI care products,

Product Review: Naija Naturals Wig Kit Essentials

I see wigs as a form of protective style, so I have enough to help me protect my hair especially as the harmattan is coming up. My need for wig crotchet twists/braids was what let me to buy this wig kit but of course, I can use it for any wig project.

Harmattan season - Protecting your Hair

We are nearing the harmattan season though every where where I am in Lagos seems so hot. I am not understanding. 
When it comes, the weather will be so dry and dusty as always, therefore, we need to protect our hair from loosing moisture. We will also need to increase the frequency of wash days due to dust accumulation.
If our hair is not taken care of properly during this period, it can get dry and brittle, resulting in breakage. That's one scary word to we naturalistas, right?
If you want to do protective hairstyles such as braids, twists,

Mini length Check.

Hi hi beautiful naturalistas,
Sorry this is coming late. This post was supposed to come after the post on My Natural Hair Chronicles but I got sidetracked. Now, here it is :) 
I was preparing for wash day (Two Saturdays ago) and decided to do a mini length check. I have been natural for about 2 years and 7 months, and my hair grows at an average of 4.5 to 5 inches per year.

Natural Hair Newbie Starter Kit / How to avoid being a "Product Junkie".

cisca kinks

This post started out as just one topic and then morphed into two (since they go hand in hand) as it progressed, hence the 2-in-1 heading. Back to business......
There is this tendency to become what is known a "product junkie" if you are starting out as a naturalista, except being frugal is one of your virtues. You see a stranger's hair looking yummy and you are like "what do you use for your hair?"
The person tells you and off to natural hair stores you go. Only to find out on application, the product doesn't work for your hair or

To Big chop or Transition - My story

I finally made the decision to go natural in final year of Pharmacy School. Had a colleague that had started out and I really liked how her hair was turning out. It was quite easy for me to make my decision because I really didn't have a lot of growth for like 7 years at the time...and I wanted growth like really wanted growth.
So I decided to keep making my hair but no relaxers...

Natural Hair Care Series - Hair shears

Hey guys,
I believe there is nothing new again in the natural hair community, but it is good we remind ourselves of information we may have tossed aside and are beneficial to us.

Natural hair care is a very broad topic so I will be posting in tidbits.

I have been natural for 2 years plus, big chopped in March 2014. I experience Hands in Hair syndrome (HIHs) and single strand knots (SSKs)  whenever I leave my hair out like a twist out or something.
So I have taken it upon myself to take my hair shears with me so that when I feel a knot I can't untangle, I will just snip it off and also to subconsciously remind myself...

P.S I am not scissors happy, just healthy hair conscious.
