Flashback Friday: Pictures from Naturals in the City, 13!

Bantu knots, Lagos Natural hair meet-up, Naturals in the City 13

Hello everyone!

Naturals in the City is a quarterly natural hair and lifestyle meet-up in Lagos. Along with Natural Nigerian, Carib Health & @Ms_Isioma, I am happy to be one of the organizers of this event.

For a few reasons, I wasn’t able to put up the pictures from our last meet-up for the year 2015 but, here they are now!

I was going to merge NITC 13 photos with NITC 14 from just last month, but it’s a lot so, expect another FBF post soon! I typically take like 200 pictures at meet-ups, so sifting through everything and choosing the ones that are actually decent can be such a process. I even have photos from last year’s Loc Appreciation Day, just resting somewhere. I promise I’ll have them up before the next LAD rolls around!

So, without further ado, I give you Naturals in the City, 13! 🙂

  1. Okay! I am so jealous right now, all these hair fun happening in Lagos, people extend the tentacles of goodness to Ibadan Naturalistas. Although i am texlaxed i identify with all type of hair.

  2. OMgoidness, I met the lady behind Real Hair Republic at NITC 11 and we discussed hair products. since then I’ve been trying to remember the name of her store without success. I’ve googled but can’t find them. How does one get in touch with them to order hair products???

    1. Hey Mimi! Her website realhairrepublic.com should be up soon, so watch that space! I’ll find her contact deets when I get home and send them to your email 🙂

  3. Hi,

    Your pictures are great, and your event seems to be very nice.
    Maybe one day, I will come to visit because now I live in France.
    I love your blog !
