Women embracing their natural hair in 2020
Over the past decade the natural hair movement has grown as many women are transitioning from relaxed hair to natural hair.
Women are now becoming more open to embracing their natural hair and creating comfortable spaces on social media for other women to share without fear of being shamed.
Nolwazi Mncwabe has been on a natural hair journey for the past three years and couldn’t be happier because her journey has come with lots beautiful highs and tragic lows.
“Our natural hair screams royalty and we can no longer shy away from showing it off because it’s a huge part of our identity as Africans, when I was growing up my mother used to relax my hair so much that after a while my scalp started peeling off and it took years for my hair to grow back,” said Mncwabe.
With the world being inspired by the African continent, this couldn’t be a prouder moment to be authentically African.
“As women our beauty and confidence shouldn’t be measured by how straight our hair is, added Mncwabe.
Asanda Khoza is a hairstylist who was inspired to master the craft by how natural hair was frowned upon by society.
“Natural hair is so beautiful and powerful, women should develop a routine that works well for their hair type, find the right products that will not be harmful to their scalp, and own their crowns with pride” explained Khoza.
