HAIR'VOLUTION MAGAZINE: Evolution of Black Hair.:
Evolution of Black Hair.
I recently started thinking about where the average Nigerian is hair wise in 2014 and it is apparent that the new trend is "going natural"... This prompted me to think back to where we are coming from and where we are going. Unfortunately there's not much history to research on the web about Nigerian hair but I found below great article on thirtyroots.com and decided it tells the whole story.
Nigeria has always looked to the west for hair inspiration and I can testify that the styles associated with the average African American in the past three decades match with what the popular styles worn in Nigeria. So enjoy the read and let us know if you agree or disagree.
I know the title of this article is a question that we as African Americans have thought about whether through frustration with a “bad hair” day or looking at someone’s hair and wanting your own to look like or perform like theirs. I am sure many other cultures have had the same thoughts, but is there an underlining issue with African Americans?
This is a question that every woman with natural hair has asked at some point in her hair journey.
There is an argument that natural hair breaks faster than permed or straight hair. A lot of people have said it is not true and have even tried to prove it in so many ways.

Can we then say Rihanna is the Queen of Edgy Hair?
I have realised that a lot of people use all sorts of products on their hair without doing any research first.
Personally, I like to find out more about products, their components and uses before I try it on my hair. It's not healthy to put different things in your hair just because you saw an advertisement or it worked for someone else.
So, here are a few tips that just might help:

After my first introductory article, I got a call from my older sister complaining that the article was not complete. I got a bit worried because I checked and
Hv: When did you start?
Tress : We started in September 2015 and we conceived the idea a while back but we actually started working on it September 2015 and we built our first unit from September to December to build our first version and we had a pilot of it in Ghana but we redesigned it in December to make beggary. Then we launched it globally to the rest of the world on the 26th of February 2016 at the social media week in Lagos.
