Did you know that Softsheen and Redken developed the original Mizani brand? And in 2001, after existing as part of the Soft-Sheen Carson group in Chicago for over a decade, Mizani evolved into the L’Óreal Professional Products Division. I’ve known about Mizani for years but up until recently, I didn’t know it was made specifically for textured hair or that it is under the L’Óreal brand. My first time using Mizani was the middle of last year while I was in Nigeria. The stylist at the salon I frequented recommended the product
Hair has always been a ‘thing’ for me. Just like a great outfit, a good hairdo can help to bolster your confidence. When your hair looks good, you feel good and when it doesn’t, you don’t. Sometime last year, I decided to start wearing wigs instead of weaves. I noticed that relaxing my hair and the strain on my hair from weaves was damaging. Uneven hair, receding hairline and weak ends were just some of my struggles. But since I started wearing wigs, my life has changed for the better.
Founders of Flawless Xtensions, a beauty bar in Lekki Phase 1, Lagos, Nigeria are best friends and have known each other for more than 19 years.

Having debated going natural for some time but never quite having the “balls”, I knew it was now or never. Call me hair lazy but doing my hair is not a
They say your hair is your crowning glory, this I know to be true. It is why issues like receding hairline and thinning hair can be distressing and even depressing for many women. Receding hairline is not as common in women as it is in men but traction alopecia is. What is traction alopecia? It is damage to the hair caused by excessive pulling on the natural hair follicle. Ballerinas, gymnasts and weave wearers are some of the women that suffer from this condition. In my early twenties, I used
As with fashion and beauty, hair is up there on the list of things I love. It doesn’t matter how well dressed you are or how fantastic your makeup looks, I strongly believe your hair has to look equally as good.
