  Almost missed posting this pix. But God is just amazing. He gave it back to me this afternoon, and I just couldn't wait to share with you. What do you think? Isnt it just so cute! Hair Cocoon. #welove


As you get to know me better you'll come to realize how much of a sucker for colours I am. These days when you look around, there are coloured hairs everywhere. Especially purple in different hues and shades, and they come in different shapes and sizes too. Then there are other colours like neon green, screaming gold, vibrant blues.
Even the men are not left out, colouring their beards also. I just love it.
It's not just colours, but vibrant colours.
If you are a hair connoisseur like me, join me to enjoy these hair buffet for lunch.
In order to allow for easy comparison we also serve you these hairstyles in black alongside the coloured ones.
By the way, anyone with information about how to get a bloody red voluminous afro?

We are tempted to call these hair Haute Couture, but our dictionary will not allow. Lol. Anyways, enjoy and be inspired.


In all honesty, the #Whitneyhouston lookalike should have been a stand alone. Just because we lurrrv Whitney. But the other curls are also hair-inspiring..



This week has been quite interesting on instagram, and we'll be sharing some of the our favourite posts with y'all.

TOP 5 POSTS OF THE WEEK.. on instagram

At number one is this simple packing, posted by @ninarodriguesoficial. We dont even know how to call it. But it is so simple that it being number one is quite amazing. Natural hair & curly. It is divided into 3 parts, with the top part being the largest chunk. This top plaited into a big cornrow to the back, where it simply joins its other two counterpart, which have been slicked flat to the back.
We cannot see the ends, but we're sure they're neatly joined together in holy matrimony. Why people love it so much beats us, but we know it got the most likes last week.
Thanks for following us on instagram @hairvolutionmagazine, and keep double clicking on our posts. You never know, you might find urself featured here.
There are other posts that also got good likes. They are also included here.

Hv. How regularly do you visit the salon
Tseju.. Once a month cos I can actually do somethings on my own.

Hv.. Oh! Some things like..
Tseju.. I can curl my hair by myself.

Hv.. Ok. You can curl your natural hair or your weaves, or both. And how do you do that?
Tseju.. My weaves. I just sit in front of the mirror.

Hv.. How long is your natural hair?
Tseju. 4 inches.

Hv.. Haaaaa. Is that true, and does that inform ur decision to stick with weaves?
Tseju.. Yaaaa. My hair is not full, its a bit scanty.

Hv.. Dont worry, same here. Lmao. Why did u start the hair business?
Tseju.. 1. Love hair. 2. Was difficult for me to get good hair around, had to always travel far to get good hair.

Hv.. What range of products do u sell?

Hv.. Answer these trivia...
Natural hair or weaves?
Tseju.. Weaves

Hv.. Long or short?
@raychmadaki (follower).. short
Tseju.. Short. Do long to make hubby happy.

Hv.. Really. Lol. Ok. Curls or straight hair?
Tseju.. Curls.

Hv.. Explain the difference between human hair and synthetic?
Tseju.. Human hair is in two calsses. One is the low quality in packs like Chocolate, Supreme, Blackpearl etc.
And the other is the raw virgin hair. It could be Brazilian, Peruvian, Cambodian..
Synthetic are not hair, like Expression, Amigo products, most times cant be re used, washed, dried, curled.

Hv.. Pls expantiate, chocolate, Supreme, blackpearl?
And then Cambodian, this is the first time im hearing of Cambodian hair.
Tseju.. Chocolate, Supreme and blackpearl are brand names. They are in packs.
While Cambodian are real donor hair. Real hair from human.
Yes there is Cambodian.

Hv.. Ok. What you're saying is that donor hair does not come in packs.
Tseju.. Yaa. Most people now brand human hair(raw virgin hair) in nice packs now. Packaging.

Hv.. Abi na. Lol. Is there any difference between human hair and virgin hair?
Tseju.. no. Means same.

Hv.. Ehn ehn. Noted. Lol. When deciding what hair to buy, what are the things our audience should consider.
Tseju.. Occasion, weather, what suits you, etc

Hv.. Pls Explain. How does weather affect the kind of hair you want to buy?
Tseju.. when its hot(sunny), dont think its the best time to fix 40 inches hair.

Hv.. Lolzzz. Is there really 40 inches?
Tseju.. Yes there is 40inches.

Hv.. How does one maintain human hair
Tseju.. I advise you give to professionals because even if you know what to do you might not be using the right products.

Hv.. Ok. But when you wake up in the morning, what do you do to your human hair in order to 'get up &go'.
Tseju.. I just wake up and apply leave in conditioner/serum, depending on which I think its necessary that morning.

Hv.. Whats the role of each, leave in conditioner or serum?
Tseju.. Leave in conditioner helps with ur
curls while serum gives shine. Leav in conditioner detangles. Both serum/leave in conditioner softens the hair making combing easy.

Hv.. Ohh I get. I use leave in conditioner, but I still notice a lack of shine. Soo, that means one has to get both.
Tseju.. Yes.

Hv.. Tell us more about your hair business, how has it been, what has been the challenges, and how have u been able to overcome.

Here is #hairAccording2 Waje, enjoy...
 few days ago, precisely 1st September was Waje Iruobe's birthday, and Hairvolution Magazine decided to do a feature on the singer and fantastic live performer tagged #hairAccording2 Waje. In all honesty, before I Wish Waje's hair lifestyle was juat like any other Lagos Island Big Girl: she was a fan of long wavy human hair.
But by the end of her last heartbreak; the making of the chartbusting I Wish; and finally fully finding the love of God, she found herself. 
We're not sure which came first, her physical exercises, or her cutting her hair. 
We just loved it. 
The rest, they say is history. 
What we can say about Waje's present hair lifestyle is that she seems to have acquired a couple of delicious platinum coloured wigs: straight, long kinky curls; plus she usually has these loooong luscious braids, OH! 
And then when she sometimes wraps the braids up in an 'osuka' mohawk that adds needless inches to her already voluptuously tall frame. Uhhh. We're... we cant find the words

We've been monitoring Chidinma for a while now. But oh yeah, we didnt see this coming.

Though the last we noticed, we noted that she was indeed in need of a haircut, not knowing that she had something up her sleeves. No wonder the different caps!

Introducing chidinma with the medium-sized threading.

We at Hairvolution Magazine looove it, afterall she somehow reminds us of our Publisher Azeezat.
But what about u? Yay or Nay


Definitely, eventually Lauryn Hill's live performance in Nigeria has come and gone. But if there is anything that will be talked about the event for a long time, apart from Lauryn's energetic performance, and the ineptitude of the organizers, it is her low cut hairstyle.
Surprisingly, Lauryn's lowcut reminds us of our own Chidinma. But ironically this show coincided the same weekend that chidinma debuted her new thread hairstyle.
So on your behalf, Hairvolution Magazine brings you The Hairvolution of Lauryn Hill.
which is your favourite Lauryn hairstyle of all time?
