!!!Our Beautiful Natural Sister all the way from Ibadan, Nigeria with a gorgeous name!!!

Here is her Natural Hair Story, do enjoy My Queens,

1) Please introduce your amazing self.

A:  Hi everyone, my name is Oluwalonimi Aworinde. Most people call me Nimi. I’m a medical student, hair stylist and blogger at naturalnimi.wordpress. com. I live in Lagos, Nigeria,  although I’m originally from Ibadan, also in Nigeria.

2) Did you Transition, Big Chop, Both or Natural from Birth?

A: I was so desperate to get the natural look, and so I big chopped straight up.

3) How long have you been natural?

A: I’ve been natural since June 2013, so that’s about 3 years. I had another big chop in March 2015.

4) What made you return natural?

A: I’ve always loved styling hair. One day, I watched a YouTube tutorial where a lady with natural hair did a Bantu knot out. I tried it out on my relaxed hair, and was disappointed that mine didn’t come out as nice as the vlogger’s. After watching a few more natural hair style tutorials, I decided to cut my hair.

5) How hard or easy was your first year of being natural?

A: The first year was very difficult. I had never had to take care of my hair myself. I had never even shampooed my hair myself before. After about 3 months of total cluelessness, I found a few hair groups on Facebook where I learnt how to care for my hair.

6) What helped you the most, to remain natural?

A: I love the texture of my hair. I have thick 4c hair, and the thought of losing that really coily texture frightens me

7) Your 3 favorite products and why? A:

  1. Coconut Oil – It’s the only oil that doesn’t make my scalp itch cause it’s so light (My scalp is  quite sensitive).
  2. Cantu Argan Oil Leave-In – It keeps my hair moisturized, makes it so soft, and the smell… lovely 🙂
  3. Mayonnaise – Yeah, like the type you eat. It’s an excellent deep conditioner. Works perfect for me.

8) What do you love about your unique tresses?

A: I love everything about it(except shrinkage). I love the beautiful texture, I love the way it defies gravity, I love it’s  versatility. I can go on and on.

9) What is your least favorite task when dealing with your natural hair?

A: Washing! I hate dealing with the shrinkage that comes with it.

10) How do you inspire other girls to return natural?

A: By always wearing my hair in a neat and beautiful way. Also on my blog, I share my hair stories and try to show others how to easily manage even the most “stubborn” hair.

         

 11) So far in your journey, what is your favorite hair style?
