You asked and I provided!

After my first spotlight on some Nigerian natural hair bloggers that you should follow – largely based on their YouTube channels {Click here if you missed it} – I received many more suggestions, some of which I thought I’d share with you all. Between these two lists, there is plenty (a total of 29!) of beautiful natural hair to see and be inspired by from our amazing natural hair bloggers and entrepreneurs.

Don’t forget to mention any one that may have been left out of this list, and let’s share and be inspired. Enjoy!

1. Natural Nigerian

Ifeamaka has been natural since late 2009, but her blog isn’t just about hair. Natural Nigerian attempts to live as natural of a life as possible – through her hair care, nutrition, beauty, and wellness. She also runs an online shop, Ahia Natural Nigerian, where you can purchase products she makes herself (I recommend the Natural Nigerian Leave-in Conditioner), as well as some from other companies.

 14. Leave in the Kinks (LITK)

litk

LITK was actually one of the first natural hair blogs that I started regularly following; I enjoyed tracing the adventures of Z and Fizzy and their respective hair respectively named – Poofy & Stefania! They’ve since taken a very long hiatus from posting but their blog has a LOT of great info dating back almost ten years ago, including things about locs, which Z had. I also had the brilliant revelation that Z is the sister of Yagazie Emezi, who was featured in the first article! Ms. Fizzy can be found more regularly on her Tumblr page, Hair Like Me.

While Preye’s blog is mostly not about natural hair care, her hair sure is inspiring! Preye cut her hair in late 2009 and by Dec 2012, had reached bra strap length by wearing weaves for a while. She’s on a journey to waist length hair by the end of this year, and from the look of things, appears to be well on her way!
