It was an exciting time for ‘Naturalistas’ in Lagos on Sunday the 4th of June 2017 at the Natural Hair workshop hosted by the Natures Gentle Touch Hair Institute.
Nigeria’s first and largest hair Institute, Natures Gentle Touch Hair Institute hosted another edition of its Natural Hair workshop with ‘Naturalistas’ in attendance. This event featured a general discuss on Natural hair trends, how to care for it, maintenance and the politics of wearing natural hair in the workplace. In addition to this was a Q & A session where guests had the opportunity to ask the Institute’s lead Trichologist questions that border around how to take care of their natural hair. This session was a major eye-opener for guests present on appropriate Natural Hair care regime.
The workshop was created by the Institute to further live up to its vision of empowering individuals through education and knowledge sharing. It is a platform designed to support Nigerian women who choose to wear their natural hair, to meet other fellow ‘Naturalistas’, to commune and support one another on this journey of natural hair.
“The Nigerian Kinky natural hair is beautiful when it is well taken care of. On the flip side, it can be difficult to manage when you do not know what to do. Creating a platform for women to share their natural hair stories as well as gain knowledge from hair experts can make a huge difference in ensuring that this natural hair journey is smooth and enjoyable” said Anita Anosike, Brand Manager of Natures Gentle Touch
There will be an upcoming edition in the nearest future which will be open to more Nigerian women outside Lagos who are natural, transitioning to natural, and those with chemically-treated hair that are considering a journey into natural tresses.
The event ended with ended with a networking session.
Does bad hair mean bad health? Is your hair trying to tell you something about your health? Maybe. Some conditions and medications affect your body as well as your hair. In other cases, you may just need to take better care of your hair or scalp.
Dandruff isn’t contagious. So how do you get it? this may be due to an overgrowth of a fungus. Other possible risk factors include oily skin, stress, obesity, cold, dry weather, and having eczema or psoriasis. Although it’s embarrassing — and the itching can be bothersome — dandruff isn’t harmful.
Hair loss otherwise known as alopecia areata may mean that your immune system mistakenly attacks hair follicles, causing hair to fall out , often suddenly. Most people will have one or two bald patches, which can be treated easily with injections but in some cases all body hair falls out. Alopecia areata isn’t harmful or contagious, but it can be tough psychologically. Hair may grow back on its own, and treatment may help it grow back more quickly. Unfortunately, some people may experience alopecia areata repeatedly.
Baldness is also another hair state. Though hereditary, the trait may be more influenced by your mother’s family than your fathers’ according to research. Male pattern baldness often starts with receding hair at the temples, then on the crown, leaving a horseshoe-shaped ring of hair around the sides of the head. There are available treatments for baldness.
Lastly, help keep hair shiny by eating salmon and walnuts for omega-3 fatty acids; spinach and carrots for vitamin A; nuts for selenium; and oysters and cashews for zinc. All help maintain scalp and hair health, as do low-fat dairy, whole grains, and vegetables. Double the results: Foods good for your hair are also good for your heart.
Dandruff is characterized by flakes and annoying itching. It can be very embarrassing. Apart from the constant scratching of hair in public places, the flakes falling from your hair can make you appear very untidy and not presentable.
Almost everyone gets dandruff at some point in their lives; Dandruff can also be described as the shedding of dead skin from the scalp, and is not to be confused with simply a dry scalp. Dandruff comes in two types – dry and waxy; many people are not aware and either over treat or under treat the condition. So before you self diagnose whether you have one of these types of dandruff and not just a dry scalp, we will share 3 signs that shows you that you are definitely suffering from dandruff.
- Flakes – If you have a whitish, oily-looking flakes of dead skin dotting your hair and shoulders on a constant basis, then you are most likely suffering from dandruff. These flakes of skin range from small and white to large, greasy, and yellow.
- Itchy Scalp – Itching is another red flag for dandruff. Flakes are preceded by itching. Usually, the first symptom of dandruff is itching. The itch sensation happens when receptors on the surface of your skin are triggered by some irritants. Your nerves send a signal to the brain via your spinal cord, which then causes you to scratch your hair. Itching is another red flag for dandruff.
- Dryness and Irritation – When you suffer from dandruff, you will have dryness of hair and scalp and many times, the irritation will occur from constant itching on an already dry scalp.
If you are experiencing all three or at least 2 of the above, it is time to treat your dandruff before it starts to embarrass you.
