It’s Wednesday and it’s about time I caught up on one of my favourite ABY features, ABY Naturalista! Today Freda Fro shares her natural dos and don’ts.

Tell us about yourself

My name is Alfreda Ashiofu, but most people on the web know me as Freda Fro. I’m 20 yrs old, a health major, and I was born and raised in Nigeria but currently reside in Texas.

What’s your heritage (roots)? 

I’m 100% Nigerian, as far as I know tracing back to several of my “forefathers” lol!

 

What was your hair like before you went natural?

ABY Naturalista: Nikki Venus

 Hey there, ABYers! I was having that great TGIF-feeling on this cheery day until I switched on my phone and read that there’d been another bombing in Abuja, Nigeria. Please take a few minutes of your time and pray for the families of those who passed in the unfortunate incident. Seriously, this terrorism has got to stop.

Nevertheless, let’s not give a bunch of sad cowards get what what they want by moping around. 

Thanks for loving the new ABY: Naturalista feature. Our first feature last week was a hit! To liven and lighten up the Friday, I bring you another beautiful Naturalista, Nikki. I asked Nikki a few questions about her hair regime and here’s what she hit me up with:

ABY Naturalista: Brittney

Hey beauties! I’ve realized my beauty and hair posts get most of my traffic (check the sidebar —–> for my MOST POPULAR posts), so I’ve decided to serve up more beauty related material.

Natural hair is tough to maintain! A lot of people have been going natural lately, including moi, so I thought it was best to scout for some SERIOUSLY HOT naturalistas on the web and ask them what they did to maintain their nappy locks.

Not everything may work for everyone. But sometimes it’s just good to know what others are doing, how they are doing and what’s working for them. Get ready to be blown away by this segment. I’ve got a whole list of naturalistas lined up. If you’re on a natural journey yourself and would like to share your growth and tips please email artbecomesyou@yahoo.com

Since the release of Dencia‘s ‘Whitenicious’ beauty product, the product has had a lot of mixed reviews (as expected). Dencia continues to defend her product.

Channel 4 News sat down with the pop singer and this is what she had to say:

 

‘Whitenicious’ is an outrageous name for a product which is Dencia probably picked it. the product is literally selling itself!

It’s so popular now that an interview/documentary with Oprah Winfrey Network TV (OWN) is in the works. And they are even considering paying Dencia for it. 

 

What are your thoughts?

Love & Light
