After working in the hair industry for more than 14 years, I have come to appreciate even more how much emphasis women put on their hair and what they believe makes hair beautiful. Many of us have been led to believe that we need our hair straight and silky for it to look beautiful and presentable. The perception is that natural hair is hard to work with. Even though I enjoyed working on natural hair as much as I did other textures, I wanted to make it my personal challenge. So I went completely natural. I felt liberated the day I cut my hair, it was the best feeling in the world! I loved my virgin hair, enjoyed feeling its texture and bonded with it immediately. I was never going back!
Some of my friends and clients who saw the bold step I took were encouraged to also go natural.
I drew inspiration from other women who have been rocking their ‘fros and was determined not only to make a success of my natural hair journey but help others do the same while striving to innovate the space.
For those who appreciate convenience, I set up and run a mobile hair salon in Johannesburg and have formulated my own Fai-bulous hair care range, made from organic nuts and natural essential oils for moisturising and strengthening all hair types.
