My night time routine and what guys may think about it…

Hey guys..

Ok so I went out a couple of days ago to see a friend and my hair was looking nice if I may say so myself so of course I took a couple selfies.. A really close friend (guy) saw the picture on my update and said I looked beautiful and that my hair had gotten full.. I’m a sucker for compliments by the way so of course I felt fly.

Later that night when I had gotten back Continue reading


Natural Hairstyles: Big hair or high puff..

Hey guys.. So I took out my faux locs earlier than I planned to which by the way I spent several hours on and for the life of me, I cant figure out why. Maybe its because I get bored wearing the same style for more than two weeks at a stretch. Anyway, I would loveee to wear my hair out and all over the place everyday if I could but my hair and shrinkage are besties so that doesn’t happen often except that it happened today..yay




I was celebrating quite too much yea?

Nigerian Salons and Natural hair…

are your edgesAs I’m typing this post, I’m sipping a cup of tea because green tea solves all my problems and well I seem to have a problem with Nigerian salons.. Wait don’t crucify me just yet if you love your salon or stylist.. But this is something I think most natural haired girls can relate to..

Since I went natural, I’ve been doing most of my hair care and styling myself. Most of the time because while I can do my hair care and braid and even make my own wigs myself, I’ve not been able to fix my weaves myself and so I have to return to the salon once in a while and I just dread it.. why? you’ll find out.

After the big chop: What you’ll need…

Hey guys,

By the way, slay Jill!

By the way, slay Jill!

Recently big chopped or starting a healthy hair journey?  I am excited to share some of the basic things you’ll need for your hair journey because as they say, knowledge is power right? right?  Oh and most importantly, I’ll be outlining some great yet affordable products that wont leave a dent in your pocket because we are not about to be spending so much on these things please.

  1. Shampoo: Is simply the process of thoroughly cleansing your hair or scalp. Many people skip this or indulge as little as possible. The issue here is that some of the cleansing ingredients used in making shampoos (e.g Sodium lauryl sulfate) are too harsh thereby stripping the hair of its natural oils/moisture although some people are okay with this.

Hey guys,

I’m more nervous than excited as I start this blogging journey. It could turn out to be anything but I hope it turns out to be inspiring and fulfilling among other great things.

This blog is directed at sharing hair care tips, styling and other fashion finds at the most affordable rates.

Starting with the basics, I big chopped my hair on the 3rd of January, 2014. That’s about 20 months ago and its been funnn for me mostly. I love my natural hair, I love the  versatility of it, I love the texture and very importantly, I love seeing my hair grow. The major challenge I’ve encountered is acquiring all the products I want need at the prices they cost and still have money left over for other things as I’m still a student and I’m not getting paid yet. But I wasn’t going to let that stop me now, was I? You shouldn’t too.

If you’re thinking of going natural or already are and you’re getting discouraged because you’ve heard or found out that you will become a product junkie and therefore spend all of your money or time acquiring products then please join me as I share my experiences and figure out the best ways to grow healthy natural hair on the most affordable budget possible.

Oh don’t worry, I’ll do all the research and even use my hair as the ‘lab rat’ and all you need to do is subscribe, read and comment. Ask me anything hair related and if I don’t already have the answer, I’ll find it for you.

Welcome to Naturalgirlonabudget. Start your hair journey with me, I got your back.

I love you already.
