I'm so grateful for how our first Nigerian Natural Hair & Beauty Show (NNHB2015, for those in the know) went off without a hitch last Saturday!

The Nigerian Natural Hair & Beauty Show: all the details!

So ... have you bought your ticket yet? If not...why not?
It's just under 2 weeks until the biggest event we've EVER organised, and in between being ridiculously busy, we can't help the snippets of excitement we feel!

Happy birthday to us!

Five years ago today I organised the first ever Kinky Apothecary event, having decided to channel my burgeoning hobby as a natural hair obsessive into something a little bit more structured. The beginning almost seems like just yesterday. I am not entirely sure what my ultimate plans were when I first started.

Update: The Nigerian Natural Hair & Beauty Show - Early Bird tickets now available!

Since Felicia Leatherwood's last visit to Lagos, a frequent question we've received has been when is the hair whisperer and stylist to stars such as Jill Scott, Teyonah Parris and Will Smith bringing her workshop back?

Update: Current hair situation!

Hi all,

Just thought I should give a quick update on what's going on with my hair.

I've been in loose twists since December. Loose twists have been in my styling arsenal since some time in 2012 when Miss (now Mrs) Fizzy introduced me to them.

Products we love this Valentine's (and every) Day! (plus a guide to picking your products)

Picking products is a very individual thing. What works for one person doesn't necessarily work for the next. That's why whenever I get one of the most frequently asked questions "What products should I use for my natural hair?" I am always hesitant to start reeling off a standard list of products.

Yay for the weekend! There's nothing we like better than passing a Saturday or Sunday afternoon watching natural hair styling videos on YouTube.

Hello 2015! Here’s a flashback to 2014 at The Kinky Apothecary.

Since we’re almost at the end of January 2015, this seems like the perfect time for my procrastinating self to wish all our customers, readers and Kinky Apothecary family a very Happy New Year, and all the best for 2015!
