On the Spotlight! – Yetunde

Hello people!

It’s been a while. But you’all got to understand with all this on going fuel situation, It’s very hard to use gadgets anyhow without battery saving preps. 🙂 Oh! plus the postponed exams issues at school. I tire for that school.

Anyways, Today, i’ll be introducing to you Yetunde. She’s a very fun loving young lady with a BIG personality. Let’s meet her!


1) Hello beautiful, Please let’s get to know you!

I’m Sanni Yetunde by name. A Web/Software developer. I love chatting, dancing, singing and playing the guitar at my leisure time. I also love travelling and taking tour of new places. I kind of have a soft spot for photography and books too.



2) Why did you go natural and how long have you been rocking you tresses?

I went natural because I love the afro look, Yeah, I had a healthy relax hair so i didn’t go natural due to breakage or other norms you hear from naturals. I only love the natural afro look. First Big chop – July 2012. Second Big Chop – February 2013. Third Big Chop – April 2015. I love to experiment and dare things with my hair, all through my natural journey – I had dreads twice but now, I’m in a new TWA stage.


3) Tell us a little bit about your hair background

I think I’m 4c, I know I have very tight coils that loves water and grows at the speed of light. lool. I’m not sure if there’s anything my hair dislikes because it always co-operate with whatever products I use on it. Name – Not a fan of giving hair names biko.



4) What’s your Regimen like?

Regimen – Hmmm, I’ve used a lot of products while on locs and other styles, I really don’t have a routine because my hair care all depends on my schedules for a particular week. But if not on a protective style, I co-wash every week and shampoo every two weeks. I spray my hair with a mixture of water and coconut oil everyday irrespective of the hairstyle.



5) What styles do you love wearing?

Afro Afro Afro, then em High Bun.


How do people perceive and receive your natural hair and over all look?

People are always different. I get the good comments. I get the bad comments. But over all, I make sure I do what pleases me with my hair. After all, it sits on my head and not theirs. #BigGrin


What kind of naturalista are you?

The experimental one as I’ve tried dreads twice between 2012 and 2015. I ain’t a product junkie person but i still love to try new products when an old products is finished. I don’t stuck up left over/abandoned products in my closet. I make sure I finish one before buying a new one. I can be very lazy which is why you’ll rarely catch me on twists/twists out/bantu knots etc.



6)  What are 2 must haves/ must dos in your hair care routine?

 Spraying my hair with a mixture of coconut oil and water everyday. – Applying castor oil and massaging my edges before going to bed.


7) What are two mustn’t haves /mustn’t dos in your hair care routine?

– Combing my hair while dry is something i don’t want to do.

– Shampoo-ing hair without a deep conditioning is what I’ll never try.



8) What’s the craziest/strangest thing you have put or did to you hair?

Nothing crazy I can think of right now. I’m sorry to disappoint. #puppyEyes



9) What do you think of the acceptance of natural hair in your locality?

I just recently relocated back to Lagos after some years and then It amazes me so much that whenever I go out, I meet a lot of naturals in the church, on the streets, shopping malls etc. And I think I love the fact many people are embracing their natural hair, it’s really amazing.



10)        Share with us 2 hair product(s) you can’t do without?

Coconut Oil. Any leave-in-conditioner but (Natural Nigerian leave in works for me best.)



11)        Any short or long term hair goals?

Nope, I can wake up tomorrow morning and come up with something creative.


12)        Any two special hair tips and tricks you would like to share with us?

Always spritz your hair daily no matter the hairstyle, trust me – your hair will be much easier to take down and detangle.


13)        What do you appreciate most about your hair care/hair journey?

I appreciate the fact that I always look good no matter what I chose to do with my hair – Locs, BC, etc.


14)        What’s the most challenging thing in your hair journey?

The most challenging thing is the fact that natural hair maintenance takes time. Yeah , for me – I guess this is because I love handling my hair myself most times.

15)        How can we connect with you on the internet?


Thank you for you undivided time and attention Yetunde! (Gosh I love the color on her locs!)


By the way, How are you all preparing for Dab’s Salon Day Out tomorrow?

I bet It’s going to turn out great.
