EVENT GALLERY | NITC 9 – The Naturals Meet Up

Natural Nigerian hosted yet another Natural hair meetup last Saturday. The 9th edition of Naturals in The City was themed ‘Maintaining Hair Length’, and had an exhibition with a wide range of Nigerian-made hair and skin brands, popular hair products and accessories merchants, clothing and an actual nigerian-made natural smoothies brand. There were also workshops with presenters covering topics from locs to healthy living, as well as an onsite doctor giving hair related consultations.

 Oh So Smoothies

They make very tasty, all natural, healthy smoothies that use a lot of Nigerian grown fruits and vegetables. One interesting blend they had was Ugulicious, made with Ugu leaves… sounded weird, but actually tasted pretty yummy.
