Check out my holiday gift selection in the Essence Magazine Ultimate Gift Guide!



Do you ever wonder what a good gift would be to give a fellow Naturalista for Christmas? Or perhaps you just want to treat yourself?

I was SO excited to have been asked to take part in this Essence.com feature talking about my top natural hair gift picks, alongside a number of my favourite bloggers including our very own Geri (yes, I'm claiming her now! She's "ours"!!!)

The good news for readers in Nigeria? A number of the items I chose, and some chosen by the other bloggers, will be available on the Kinky Apothecary shelves in time for Christmas, and the rest will follow soon after. Hurray!

So take a look through the gallery and start compiling your wishlist. There are some awesome suggestions on there.

    1. Thanks Daisy. Lol- yes sadly we didn't have time to do a proper shoot, just a couple of shots with my living room wall as a backdrop. But yes it was definitely nice to have my photo taken by someone who understands lighting and composition... oh and has a proper camera too (as opposed to my old beat up phone!)

      PS: Make sure you send in pics of the attempted twist updo!

  4. Very Nice Nibi. I just saw came off the Urban Bush Babes blog and they were part of the Essence Magazine feature and i click on TKA and our "own" Nibi was featured too.

    Can't wait for the new products to "arrive"!

    P.S: Is there any reason why The Apothecary does not stock AVJ ??

      PS: The Kinky Apothecary is adding a whole load of things to the stock list in the coming weeks. Will AVJ be one of them, I wonder? ;-)

  6. A big congratulations to you. I rarely rock my hair as is, don't know how to do twists or updos but determined to try. Since I discovered curl activator gel though, my combing process has been easy but I am going back to rocking my braids.

  7. Woohoo! Very pleased to see you on Essence.com. I'm in awe of your hair and your styling skills. Since I'm too lazy to try most of your styles, I've content myself with just admiring yours.
