Hi! I’m Mimi, a teen Nigerian and natural hair blogger in the struggle with other teenagers with natural hair who are hardly represented in the natural hair community. I understand how hard having natural hair can be for teenagers like:

  • Trying to fit in all these many new routines into our school life.

  • Getting negative comments that can make you feel insecure.

  • Feeling weird wearing your natural hair out.

  • Natural hair products being too expensive.

  • Lack of salons that can handle our hair.

And lots more.

Natural hair blogs for teenagers are not common and although I love adult hair blogs, I still feel the need to be with people within my age bracket that I can relate to.

I know other teens feel the same way which is why I started my blog which has now grown to become LushFro as a place where young naturals can come to, feel comfortable and learn from.


My 4c natural hair on a humid day

My hair journey

I have been natural for a year and two months . I have 4c natural hair but I don’t restrict my posts to just those with 4c hair. My hair is tightly coiled, very springy and dense.

Update: I’m now 4 years into my natural hair journey! Check out LushFro to stay up to date with me.

I post a lot of different hair content especially topics that aren’t talked about on other blogs.

I’ve made LushFro a more interactive blog so do check it out and please feel free to say your fears, struggles, successes and ask questions. Thank you.
