Woman Behind The Brand: Ntombenhle of AfroBotanics

I really admire and salute these women for their work in providing good natural hair products that are easily accessible to woman […]

Event Review: Johannesburg Natural Hair Meet Up 2015

So last week Saturday I met up with fellow naturals for what I think was one of the best natural hair events I have ever attended — The Johannesburg Natural Hair Meet Up 2015! The event took place at Open at Maboneng Precinct. It was a tad bit difficult for me to find the venue, but I also think it could be […]

My 3 Year Loc Anniversary!

It’s amazing how time just flies! I can’t believe I have reached my 3 year loc anniversary! *happy dance* When I started my loc journey 3 years ago I didn’t imagine my locs would have grown to the length they are today. It just shows you that with patience your hair can reach *that* desired length. I don’t know how many times […]

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 […]

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 […]
