When this before and after pic of DJ Lambo popped up on my Instagram feed this morning I was in complete & utter shock! DJ Lambo (Olawunmi Okerayi) is one of the hottest female DJs on the Naija scene. Signed to Loopy Records/Chocolate City, she is known for her trademark tomboy style and hair cut.

In the past when I used to see pics of her, I thought she was a boy…no shade intended.

Her brother Jide St. Ola is a bad a$$ makeup artiste who has beat the faces of everyone from Rita Dominic to Funke Akindele and yesterday he got his hands on his no makeup wearing sister and completely transformed her! The stunning results are what you see above!

Even without makeup Lambo is freshfaced and pretty but with makeup on she looks stunning!

Transition To Natural Hair Like A Boss!

‘Transitioning’ is one of those natural hair buzzwords a la ‘deep conditioning’ (saturating your hair in conditioner and/or oils and using heat to encourage absorption into your hair), ‘pre-poo’ (pre-shampoo oil treatment), and ‘dusting’ (trimming your ends). If you’re new to the community the lingo can often times be confusing but don’t worry we’re here to decode it for you!

If you’ve made the decision to go natural after chemically processing (with relaxers or texturisers) or after heat damage, you have two choices:

  • The Big Chop: cutting off all your hair off at once
  • Transitioning: a more gradual process where you just stop processing your hair and gradually trim off the ends as your natural hair grows out

If you’re new to the natural hair community, protective styling involves putting your hair into a style that involves tucking your ends away from the atmosphere to protect them from damage whilst your hair grows. The premise is that if the ends of your hair don’t break and your hair continues to grow, then you will achieve longer hair. I hear the phrase from a lot of people that they like to ‘put their hair away’ this usually translates as either purely protective styling (wearing their own hair in buns, twist and up-do’s) and for others this means putting on a wig or weave for a little while. For those who prefer the latter, there can be a tendency to neglect your hair while it’s “away”. So make sure you remember these tips to ensure you reach your hair goals.
