7 South African Celebs With The Most Talked About Hairstyles

A list of famous South African Queens who keep fans thrilled with their hairstyles

Published

on

THE EXPERIMENTAL ACTRESS: ENHLE MBALI

She’s not on the latest cover of DRUM Hair for nothing.

Enhle Mbali has been serving style goals for a long as we can remember. The style icon opens up about her knack for experimenting with different hairstyles on the hair publication’s latest edition. “I am pretty comfortable with different hairstyles and I think people have noticed…”

Well, of course, we have. The 31-year-old thespian-turned-fashion designer recently delighted her more than 1 million Instagram followers when she premiered bomb ass dreadlocks. Enhle is always playing on the edge of convention with her hair do’s, and it often pays off.

“I don’t think I’ve ever had a hairstyle where I thought, “yoh, uh uh… I can’t do this!”, she shared with the publication, adding that she’s “never had a hair regret thus far.”

Not one!?

QUEEN OF COLOUR: NADIA NAKAI

Nadia Nakai hair

There’s an unassailable boldness about Nadia Nakai. It’s there when she spits the double entendres in her verses, it’s there when she takes on the stage and it’s definitely there in her hairstyle choices.

And even though we’d already banged out some bomb hair moments here,  she’s shown no signs of slowing down since then. There’s a different hair colour on Nadia’s head every other week, and it keeps everyone talking about more than just the bops.

‘THE MOON MOP’: MOONCHILD SANELLY

Moonchild Sanelly hair

Moonchild’s fun personality sure forms part of her musical charm, which she unleashes everytime she’s on stage.

But further to her never-say-die personality, the singer is also known for her trademark blue mop of massive curls.

And while she often credits an actual mop as the source of inspiration at the root of her famous ‘do, she won’t take too kindly to people copying. Moonchild famously patented the striking look, which means you and I should think deeply about requesting this one at a hair salon near you.

BALD THEN, BOLD NOW: MOOZLIE 

Moozlie hair

There’s no doubt that Nomuzi ‘Moozlie’ Mabena’s bald look aligned perfectly with her edgy attitude, especially back when she was laying down verses at Cashtime and being the ‘young MaBrr’, and all of that.  Though, that is now truly a distant memory. The Vatel hitmaker’s infamous departure from the music label was accompanied by a rebranding for the rapper slash TV presenter’s entire look.

Her transition from MTV Base to VUZU saw her grow out her hair and ditch the bald look for a short, classic 1930’s fingerwave cut. Having kept that look long enough to create yet another trademark look attached to her gradual ascension in SA’s pop-cultural imagination, Moozlie followed the release of her debut album – Victory – with a more modern look.

BOX FADE QUEEN: LOOTLOVE

The last time we celebrated the media personality’s rare ability to switch between elegant high fashion glam, androgynous tomboy realness and streetwear swag like no other. This year, everyone is celebrating her journey to motherhood, as she preps for the birth of her twins with rapper Reason.

You can’t quite mention Lootlove without saying something about her trademark box haircuts though, can you?

RELATED: EVERYTHING WE LOVE ABOUT LOOTLOVE’S STYLE 

Lootlove has been living proof that short haircuts don’t necessarily mean your hairstyling options are limited. Quite the opposite!

Real name Luthando Shosha, the style icon has transitioned between box fades, frizzy fingerwaves, German haircuts to a range of short tapered cuts.

DREADLOCKS:  CLAIRE MAWISA

Claire Mawisa dreadlocks

Claire Mawisa is one of those people whose dreadlocks serves such goals that you can’t help but bring it up almost everytime you bump into them. The Carte Blanche presenter’s natural dreadlocks are long, healthy and lush!

THE NUBIAN PRINCESS: NOMZAMO MBATHA

Hair Goals Nomzamo Mbatha, African Hairstyles, Kinky Hair, African hair,

The actress a beautiful embodiment of what it means to be a young black woman smashing down doors and getting the bag in 2018. But while she’s loved for her undeniable acting skill, beauty, activism and philanthropy, we are going to toss in her hair on that list!

The Isibaya actress has maintained a natural look through either opting for creative styles that showcase the richness of her natural hair, or playing around with wigs and weaves that still amplify African textures.

Using Onion Juice To Stop Hair Loss And Promote Regrowth

Onion juice is an effective remedy for stimulating hair regrowth. Here’s how to use it

Published

on

Onion Juice of hair regrowth, hair loss, receding hair line

Many people suffering from hair loss aren’t aware that some of the most effective solutions are in fact already in their own kitchens. Talk about the philosophy of ‘looking within’ perpetuating itself in areas of your life you least expected it to show up!

Onion Juice of hair regrowth, hair loss, receding hair line

While lifestyle factors are key in taking care of your hair, there’s a whole minefield of natural ingredients you can use at home to stop hair loss and promote hair regrowth.

One such remedy is onion juice.

Onion Juice of hair regrowth, hair loss, receding hair line

Onion juice is one of the most effective home remedies to thining and receding hair. This is because onion contains sulfur, a chemical element that promotes blood circulation, stimulates hair follicles and enhances hair regrowth.

As such, Sulfur is often considered one of the building blocks of hair. This naturally occurring chemical is essential for maintaining the shape of keratin – the protein which makes up our hair. Keratin contributes significantly to the texture, overall health and elasticity of hair.

What’s more, sulfur has been scientifically proven to have positive effects on growing hair. The chemical stretches the growing phase of your hair, which prolong the amount of time it takes for your hair to reach the resting and shedding stages.

WATCH: WHAT HAPPENED WHEN QUENCHSA SPENT A DAY AT LEGEND’S BARBER! 

Onion packs a ton of sulfur, making it a potent remedy for boosting hair growth, adding volume and stimulating regrowth. If you haven’t encountered anyone gushing about great results from directly applying onion juice on their scalp, you’ve got some credible online forums with people swearing by it.

Causes Of Hair Loss

Reasons for the thining, receding, falling out, balding and stagnation in the growth of hair vary from genetic factors, hormonal changes, medical conditions, medications, to stress, diet, exercise (or lack of it) etc. Years of using chemicals on hair, getting hairstyles that damage your hair such as dying, bleaching, braids, buns and potytails can also play a role in hair loss. In most men, however, balding tends to hereditary. This condition is called male-pattern baldness or female-pattern baldness.

Other Risk Factors That Lead To Hair Loss

  • A history of balding. This could be from either side of parents’ families.
  • Age; hair growth slows down as one age.
  • Dramatic weight loss.
  • Medical conditions
  • Stress

Benefits of Using Onion Juice For Hair Regrowth 

  • The juice boosts the rate at which your hair grows or grows back by increasing the levels of an antioxidant enzyme catalase. The enzyme optimises hair growth and reverses the greying of hair.
  • The sulfur helps reduce the thinning and breakage of hair
  • Onion also has antibacterial properties that maintain a healthy scalp. Those properties reduce the occurrence of infections and dandruff.
  • Onion juice will stimulate your scalp by improving the circulation of blood.

How To Make Onion Juice 

Making onion juice is easy. All you need is to extract the juice from an onion and apply the juice directly on your head. You can you a grater, a blender or juicer for smaller and wetter pieces of the onion, before squeezing out the juice into a container. While you can use the onion juice alone for the regeneration of hair follicles, many people add other ingredients to strengthen hair, remove dead bits, etc, to the mix.

These natural ingredients include;

  • Honey
  • Garlic
  • Ginger
  • Olive Oil
  • Rosemary Oil

You can use the oil a minimum of three times a week, although twice daily is recommended.

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.
