Product Review: Earthy

I absolutely LOVE it when South Africans do things that are great! I recently purchased some home produced natural hair products called Earthy, made by a beautiful naturalista, Mummy Mthembu-Fawkes a.k.a MissPeaches1000. Her hair gives me LIFE! It is beautiful, thick and healthy! I had heard about MissPeaches1000’s hair products through the natural hair grapevine, so I then went to check her Instagram […]

TAFARA: hair, life & max hydration method

Origins and current location I`m from a small town called Chinhoyi in Zimbabwe. I came to study at the University of Cape Town in 2004 and only moved down to Johannesburg three years ago. What are you currently up to?  I resigned from my job in July last year due to a stress induced meltdown, literally. Although my exit was […]

This is it...

Dear FroChics, It is with a heavy heart that I find myself sitting with a laptop in my lap at 10:30PM typing this. (Ok that sounded like those high school English class letters.) Retake… I cannot believe after 5 years of natural hair blogging, I’m writing this. So let me Nike before I change my mind. 6 years ago, a […]

It's A Lifestyle

Having to live in the city like mine (Dar es Salaam in Tanzania), ‘Natural Hair’ has not gained a special value or even random popularity. Ladies are more obsessed with weaves/ wigs and such. Actually, natural hair is only taken as a ‘TREND’…. Sad, right? You can not walk freely rocking your funky kinky hair or any random updo without bumping […]

Mbali's Natural Hair Journey

I have always been very experimental with my hair and lucky for me my momma pretty much let me do whatever I wanted to it from a fairly young age — this was both a good and a bad thing — I was given a whole lot of creative freedom. I have started locs, relaxed my hair, dyed, cut it […]

Single Strand Knots

After 16 months of hits and misses, I thought my Afro and I finally got to a stage of mutual understanding. The discovery of my first single strand knot was one rude awakening that burst that bubble of illusion pretty fast. I knew all about split ends, but a piece of hair tying itself into a knot so small that only […]
