Why I Don't Like Nigerian Hair Dressing Salons - African Naturalista

I have always had a problem with hair dressers and the way my hair is done. From making braids smaller than I ask for, to setting the hair dryers too hot, to stubbornness when it comes to doing what I want as a customer,  to trying to convince me to apply relaxers, to making hair so painful I can't sleep first night of fixing or braiding. I haff suffered in Nigerian Salons, that is main reason why I decided to go natural in the first place and have been praying to God to help me discover a natural hairstyle that will keep me from visiting salons in my country  Nigeria. 
I never thought that other woman face the same or have the same experiences until I visited African Naturalistas today. Read below @ilola's experiences: I use the term, Nigerian, here knowing it is the only country I have visited salons, not that I am particularly picking on Nigerian salons.

White Rice With Mackerel Fish Stew And Cole Slaw

Nigerian fish stew is the easiest kind of tomato stew to cook. Fish stew hardly slaps or gives that sour tomato taste. For me, I have my easy method that prevents the cooked fish from crumbling in the pot. I make my stew by frying the tomatoes, fresh pepper and onion in a pot or fry pan, before adding to already boiled fish in another bigger pot. When tomato and fish are together, I leave to simmer for about five minutes, check for salt and seasoning before enjoying my fish stew. Tastes really good.
