About Me


Welcome, sit  back, relax and delve into the world that is Tola Okogwu

What do I do? A better question would be what don’t I do. For the purposes of this site, I’m a Hair Care Coach, which is basically just a smooth way of saying that I teach people how to improve the health of their hair through online courses, coaching services, free content here on the blog, my YouTube channel and the gram.

I’m a Content Creator and Product Consultant. I work and partner with brands to create launch strategies, new product lines, and powerful content that helps build an engaged community, drives sales and fosters brand loyalty.

I’m also the author of the Daddy Do My Hair books. A picture book series for children, which celebrates all things hair and fatherhood.

Are you sensing a theme yet?

I’ve been writing about and working with afro textured hair since 2010 when I started my first blog, My Long Hair Journey. Since then, I wrote some books and started a publishing company, all whilst raising two little queens.

In 2018, I stepped into the coaching space and started sharing directly all the things I had learned. Teaching YOU the tools and techniques to turn your hair care dreams into a kinky, coily reality is by far, one of my favourite things to do.

On a personal note, I live in Kent, England with my husband and two daughters. I love singing, reading and am a sucker for melted cheese!

I’m beyond pleased you stopped by, whether you landed here because you saw my BBC World interview, stumbled across an article or found me through my YouTube channel. If you REALLY wanna HANG OUT, check me out on Instagram.
