The real reason why your hair is getting damaged

We are doing it again, and better this time. This Saturday, we will be hosting a webinar on “Principle of Hair Damage.”

The truth is that as you read this, you are either dealing with Hair Damage, or know someone that is dealing with Hair Damage. It is very possible that you have run from pillar to post, to figure out the cause of your Hair Damage.

While we might not know the exact cause of your Hair Damage, since we haven't diagnosed you, we know for sure that there are certain principles that govern Hair Damage, and this is what we will be discussing this Saturday, by 6pm (GMT+1).

Once you get a hand of these principles, you will be able to figure out your Hair Damage, no matter what way it manifests itself. It is just like going to the root to deal with a problem, rather than attacking the issue from the branches. There'll also be a live Q&A session where we will be answering all your hair care questions
To join this webinar, you will need to register using the link below. The good news is that even if you are not around by 6pm (GMT+1) this Saturday, the webinar will be available for one week after we go live. You can always watch it later as long you register.

DID MY HAIR GROW? 6monthsprotectivestylechallenge Results!

Yass Yasss Yas, many great things are happening! How have things been on your end? How are you thriving so far in 2018? Isn’t lit?! It's been crazy lit on my end and I’m still swooinng from all the choices, moments and experiences life continues to offer me. And for every single one, good and bad I am grateful! My nappy-trip to India was all sorts of crazy!

It’s definitely feels super amazing to be back to fast and working wifi, clean streets, and space! oh sweet space. Have you been to India? If you have you can probably catch my feels, haha! India was crrrraaaaazzzyyy I tell you. My #3odaysinIndia Vlog series is releasing from the 1st of July on NappyeseTV so turn on notifications for my Youtube and Instagram posts!


 This post is dedication to my #6monthprotectivestylechallenge. It ended last month! 6 whole months of wearing my afro in Braids, Headwraps, Wigs and Low manipulative hair style. I loved all my hairstyles! They were simple and inexpensive. I think the most expensive ones were my long silver box braids.

Here are the results;



Length: 7 & 1/2 inches


Length: 9 & 1/2 inches

That’s about right. Hair grows on n average of 4-6 inches per year. In half that time (6months) I got my allotted 2&1/2 inches.
Check my previous post on my protective style challenge and see my progress from the beginning;

My 6 months protective style challenge

#6monthprotectivestylechallenge: 3 MONTHS UPDATE

Ya! so I definitely think I’m a natural hair Nazi. Watch my funny video below to see how I mean, its proof! haha I learnt a lot about myself making this video!


I also love protective styling, lazy natural for Life. I could protective style 12 months in a year even! Because I know it is the surest and easiet way to preserve nappy hair length and health.

I didn’t miss my Mushu one bit (lol..ok lies, but you get the gist) and the timing was perfect for India. I only shampooed and conditioned once in the whole time I was there.
Will you join me on the next protective style challenge?? Have you gone a protective style challenge before? If so, what were your results?

Love and Nappiness

You can now solve all your hair care and growth issues with a single document!

Did you miss our webinar last week? I must say that you missed. Good news is that it is still available to watch for the next 5 days, and you can still ask questions. We will answer them, and send to you via your registered email. Click here to watch the webinar

Let me tell you the truth... Many women have hair problems! Trust me, I have seen so many things in this my career as a hair expert. Don't believe the illusion created by wigs and extensions.

As you most probably know by now, we have a Hair Clinic at African Naturalistas, where we treat and manage over 50 Hair and Scalp disorders.

Hair has always been a passionate issue for me, and I've always treated it with so much seriousness. It has never really been about money for me, but about helping women with hair issues. My heart breaks when I see one more woman suffering from hair and scalp disorders, largely due to ignorance.

It is because of this sole reason African Naturalistas has evolved into what it is today, and will keep evolving.

Here's a slight summary...

A very long time ago, I realised that Africans didn't know how to care for their natural hair, and relied heavily on Black Americans to teach them what to do, even though our hair situations were quite different. So we started African Naturalistas blog

Then people started coming to us for products, because the products available then were all foreign and not very affordable. So we started African Naturalistas Hair Products

Then people started asking for products to treat their Hair loss and other Hair and scalp disorders. We realised that not everyone's issues will respond to the generic "coconut oil and castor oil" remedy, which bloggers are always quick to prescribe. We realised that truly, many ladies' hair issues are unique, and must be treated as such. So we armed ourselves with knowledge, got certifications in Holistic Practitioner of Trichology... and we opened a Hair Clinic

Then we started getting requests from people who couldn't visit our Hair clinic because of location. While our Hair clinic was and is still effective, we can't reach everyone. We realised also that what many women are facing with their hair right now is as a result of lack of proper hair care regimen, either due to ignorance, or time to study their hair and come up with a proper hair care regimen. So we did the following

We came up with the A.N. 365-Day Natural Hair Care Regimen to help you care for your hair. It doesn't matter where you are in the world, you can get this book, choosing the one that best suits your situation, and manage your hair. This book is our unique invention, because it is not your regular e-book. There are many good things about it, and one of them is that it is an interactive document. You click on your desired date, and all the things you are supposed to do on your hair that day is what appears to you.

I really cannot begin to list the goodness about these documents, but you can check them out here.

The A.N. 365-Day Natural Hair Care Regimen is supposed to last you for 365 days. So for example, if you get it in July, you will get regimens from July 2018 to June 2019. But we included a bonus of extra six months worth of Regimen. This offers is valid for only a few weeks though.

Once you have gotten your own 365-Day Hair Care Regimen, and you begin to see result, please don't hesitate to send us pictorial testimonials so other people's doubts can be cleared.

Trichology Corner: How Wigs are slowly killing your Hair

It is the new trend for ladies in this day and age to wake up in the morning, go through their daily beauty routine, whip out the wig, cover their head, head out of the house, work for their daily bread, come back home at night, take the wig off, and go to bed… every single day… and the cycle continues!

Now, we are not here to talk about your routine or lifestyle choices. We are just going to take out one element from that cycle and elaborate on it… the wig!

Why the wig?

It is simple
It is convenient
It is versatile… you can basically change your looks every single day of the month
It covers secrets… if you know what I mean
It is affordable… in most cases

Anyone can use a wig, whether your hair is healthy or not, natural or not… as long as you are alive and breathing, and can basically walk around with your head intact, you can use a wig. All you need to have is a head!

So why on earth are we writing about the wig on the trichology corner?

Simple! Like many other things in life, we have begun to abuse this interesting invention, and it is beginning to set many women back on their journey to healthy hair. To make it worse, many people don’t even know their wigs are the source of their problems in life with their hair!

I handle these cases very regularly. There the lady is, sitting in right front of me, paying for her hour, complaining, and the major source of her problem is right on her head!

So why do we frown at the constant use of wigs, as hair and scalp specialists

Any source of constant friction around your edges is bad for your hair! Many women now put on and take off their wigs countless times during the day. They adjust, readjust, and set it well to look good. To top it up, this is done every single day. We forget that the inner parts of wigs don’t have smooth satin or silk surfaces. They are basically rough on our thin and fragile edges. The effect of this constant friction on each strand might not be seen by our physical eyes like when we swipe cutlass on wet grass, but the results is always evident months down the line.

Long and short of the story…

Constant wigging causes Traction Alopecia!

If you had Traction Alopecia, constant wigging will make it worse, and your hair will recede further. If you didn’t have Traction Alopecia, constant wigging will start you on the journey to Traction Alopecia, and that is something you don’t want to deal with

So am I saying wigs are bad? Definitely not. But wigs are supposed to be buffers for your hairstyling options, once-in-a-while look changers, etc. It is surely not to be used every single day, as a hairstyle alternative, nor something to cover up for our laziness.

So if we care about the health of our hair, let’s develop better attitudes towards wigs. They are to be used, and not abused!

Is there any scalp disorders, hair shaft disorders, or any hair science topic you would like us to trash out on Trichology corner? Please, let us know in the comment section.

N.B: Remember that when it comes to hair care, there's a lot of fact, fiction, myth and reality on the internet. In the event of any confusion, it is advised you see a professional hair care expert.
