#MyNaturalCrown πŸ‘‘ : Meet Belinda Matunda

​I feel more “relaxed” when “Natural”…  So I decided to go natural in 2011 mainly because I found natural hair more alluring then relaxed hair. I’d see girls with beautiful fros and just die with envy & besides,  my relaxed hair had stopped growing so I thought why not though ! !?. . .why not!!?…

#MyNaturalCrown πŸ‘‘ : Meet Itumeleng Modise

My hair story…  My ‘conscious’ hair story began in 2006 when I cut my hair short, removing my relaxed hair and leaving the ‘growth’. This was after my big brother suggested I should cut my hair and initially I was totally against it. But after much convincing and reassuring that I’ll still look beautiful, I…

#MyNaturalCrown πŸ‘‘ : Meet Nolo Mtana

I started my natural hair journey in 2015 around October after realizing and accepting that relaxer was simply too toxic for my hair. I’d attempted growing an afro before three years prior but had aesthetic success that cost me more time in the morning, dry hair and tears. The difference this time was that I…

#MyNaturalCrown πŸ‘‘ : Kgahlego Seepe

​September the 1st 2014…  You know that conversation you have with yourself right before you cut your hair in hopes of convincing yourself why you shouldn’t cut it? Well, it never happened! I just woke up and headed to the barber to cut my hair with absolutely no intentions of going natural. I’ve always had…

#MyNaturalCrown πŸ‘‘ : Meet Mosa Machesa

Growing up my mom kept my hair natural. I went through primary with the wild hair; by the time I got into high school,10th grade, I decided to tame the beast and so I started relaxing my hair. That didn’t last long though. By the time I got to the 12th grade I was tired…

#MyNaturalCrown πŸ‘‘ : Mpho Radebe

My hair, my crown… In 2000 I decided to stop relaxing my hair. With a towel in hand, it took me one day to lock my hair. I wore my crown with pride for 13 years, I used to joke that my kids would not recognize me without them. I loved the fact that I…

#MyNaturalCrown πŸ‘‘ : Meet Mandla Mathuthu

I’m half Zulu Half Ethiopian. Yeah I know that’s a very unusual mixed culture… I have 4B naturally silky and curly hair in front because of my Ethiopian father’s side and I have dry coily 4C hair behind, because I love the silky curly side of my hair I trim of my head and do…

#MyNaturalCrown πŸ‘‘ : Meet Nthati Machesa

I guess it takes a lot to finally decide to grow your hair out naturally… At first, it seemed like a good idea until it actually grew out and once it actually grew out I got stuck at the “what do I do now” stage. Also, I must admit lol, it is quite a mission…

#MyNaturalCrown πŸ‘‘ : Meet Pulane Mabula

#MyNaturalCrown #BlackBeauty I’ve always worn my hair proudly even back in the days when I used to have it straightened, but I have to say the best decision I ever took was when I decided that I am done with chemicals on my hair, I am done with the image I knew just wasn’t me….

#MyNaturalCrown πŸ‘‘ : Meet Kananelo Mofokeng

My afro days started when I was still a baby… I was only 6 months old when my mother started combing my afro out, she has always been an afro fan, so this all started as her own journey with my hair to being my own journey years later, although she remained the influence behind…

#MyNaturalCrown πŸ‘‘ : Meet Ntswaki Malebo

The big chop was mandatory because of my traditional beliefs. And when I did the amount of damage on my scalp was worrying.Β  There was aΒ thick layer of dandruff and patches on areas that would quickly feel the heat of chemicals.Β  I was saddened and I vowed to never put chemicals on my hair. In…
