26th July: Africanism Today: Celebrating Africa Through Her Art and Culture.
I will be hanging with the campus babes at Africanism Today. It’s only my second time speaking at a hair meet-up (the first time was in Calabar) , so I’m a little nervous. Entry is FREE. This should be fun!
August 6: Capital Naturals
Abuja people, this one is for you! See Natural Nigerian’s page for more details.
9, Mahatma Ghandi Street, behind Total Filling Station, Area 11. 1pm to 6pm.
For one, there’s free natural hair styling by Eladont Naturalista Lounge- so, don’t dull!
August 7: Making Natural Cosmetics Series, Abuja
If you’re interested in learning to make your own hair and skin care products, let a pro show you how. With NN, you get your materials, you get valuable information that you can trust. It’s a practical class, and a worthy investment to make. Don’t overthink it 🙂

September 24: The Nigerian Natural Hair and Beauty Show, 2016!
I had a great time at last year’s show. Did you miss the 27 lessons I learnt from celebrity hair slayer, Felicia Leatherwood? Yes, she was there!
Tickets are online at afritickets.com. All I’m going to say is- those early bird tickets? Not an empty threat. Last year, ticket prices did go up after a while.
