Jumping on the natural hair movement is exciting when you start off but let’s be honest, you lose steam after a while when you realize this natural hair maintenance is as easy as climbing up Mount Kilimanjaro.

What’s worse is that our African American sisters have got this natural hair game on lock, which is great for inspiration, but having sisters closer to home is that more comforting. We’ve drawn up a list of a few local hair influencers to check out when the going gets tough and you need a little #HairGoals motivation.

MANECHICKS 

 

Black African Hair Care, Tips, Treatment, Hairstyles, South Africa

No matter what length you are rocking, ManeChicks has got beautiful inspiration photos of gorgeous black women rocking their natural hair.

Equipped with tips and styles, their website is well researched and fun to browse through on days when you’re looking for a transition style.

The best part of it all is ManeChicks doesn’t rely on African American inspo photos (although they are far easier to find online), but goes through the length of researching Mzansi women we love and admire who are on the natural hair journey themselves. Amongst those whom can be spotted on their timeline is Hulisane Ravele, Rorisang Thandekiso, Pearl Thusi and many more.

Africa’s trendiest hairstyling competition-Sofn’free Hair Xperts Masters Challenge- is back with bigger, inventive and more extravagant highlights this year. Seeking the most innovative talent in South Africa, the hunt for Mzansi’s hair genius has begun.

Trailblazers in the hair industry across provinces have a chance to submit their entries from today until September 16th for a spot in the contest. “This is the fourth year the competition has been running and it has created a huge platform for hairstylists to showcase their talent, gain exposure and learn more about the art of hairstyling. Not only does it give hairstylists an opportunity to grow their skills, it also positively contributes to professionalising their natural gifts and nurtures their portfolios,” explained Sofn’free Brand Manager Noeleen Burger.

Participants can anticipate more challenging tasks, from hair trends to hair colours while blending in their unique touch. The competition is divided into two segments which is the HairXperts Main Competition which is for already practising stylists (18 years and older) and YoungXperts which is open to student stylists between the ages of 16 and 26.

“We expect more entries this year, and as usual, we anticipate seeing the greatest hair fashion talent in South Africa. Stylists will go head to head to showcase their technical skills in relaxing different types of hair, while flaunting their styling creativity to create an overall look that would leave the judges and the audience in awe. It is always a super exciting affair,” enthused Burger.

The top 18 contestants will be announced on September 24th, which will be followed by a style off leading to the top 8 finalists. With R250 000 up for grabs, who will be the next Ultimate Sofn’free HairXperts Master?
