If you have plans to take good care of your natural hair and skin, here are some top 10 chemicals to avoid. I get so many emails from people asking me what chemicals are safe for their hair etc, well below is a list of a few chemicals that are a definite NEVER for black hair!

For Nigeria to thrive, we need to become selfish and be the ones who tell our own stories and take charge of our narrative. We can no longer be generous in letting others brand us as they wish.
