First Birthday Celebration... with the ladies from LITK!


Hello all!

In this post, which I am ashamed to say I wrote 5 whole months ago, I mentioned we would be having a big first birthday bash and shop launch for the Kinky Apothecary.

Well, it was definitely worth the wait, because now we've got an awesome event planned in conjunction with the lovely ladies from one of our favourite blogs, Leave In The Kinks!

The event will take place on Sunday, December 18th, so hopefully not only the Lagos residents will be able to attend, but also those of you who will be back home for Christmas.

As always, our main focus will be on Curltalk: advice on maintaining natural hair, tips on regimes, product advice, understanding ingredients, hairstyle ideas, etc. We have also planned demonstrations, giveaways, and of course all attendees will leave with a goody bag.

There will be stalls selling not only hair products but also hair accessories, jewellery, handbags, and loads more, so this will be a great opportunity to do your last minute Christmas shopping.

Of course there will be Cupcakes, and what's a celebration without Champagne?

We are going to make sure this event is a blast, so put it in your diary now- Sunday, December 18th- and keep your eyes open for more details which I will be posting in the next few days.

If you are interested in being a vendor at this event, email me at, or send one to Miss Fizz from LITK, at or Hurry, as vendor spaces are limited!

Can't wait to see as many of you as possible!


  1. Sweet Lord Jesus, HEELLLLOOOOO Nibi, You finally wrote!!!!! Welcome back. Hope to be there for the 18th. There is a Natural hair meet-up this Saturday 19th November by:Natural Nigerian, Screwyhair and Natmane. Great to know that there are so many natural sisters out there.

    PS: Have you added any new product lines/Oils to The Kinky Apothecary stock?

  2. I stumbled upon your blog just a couple of weeks ago and it really has put a bounce in my step, knowing that at last I can get all the great kinky hair products nearby. I will definitely try and make it a date.

  3. this is great!

  4. LOL@ ChiChi. Yes, sadly life has taken over, so I am pretty much writing this year off in terms of blogging, and embracing it for what it was- a year of development and growth. I promise to be more on top of things blog-wise once the shop has been launched and we've settled.

    Re: the meet-up on Saturday, I will be there so hope to meet you then.

    All new product lines will be revealed at the launch ;)

    @estha and Kator Emmanuelle, thank you so much. Hope we'll see you there!
