Your Hair Has Many Lives

“Every hairstyle and hair texture is beautiful, and you are free to choose how you wear it”

No one can deny the feeling of a good hairstyle on their head. One of the best things about hairstyles is the ability to experiment with looks. We want to look good, be groomed and feel good right? Whether you’re trying to channel the look of your favourite hair crush, put a twist on your alter ego or keep it oldie goodie, let your creative juices flow. Hairstyles unfortunately are not immortal, as you know things happen. That’s why we need the support of a few good men and, in this case, hair protectors (hair care products). But figuring out which products work best for when in the cycle of before, during and after styling can be overwhelming. We think winter is the best time for an experimental junkie, so when it comes to getting started on a clean canvas and putting hygiene at the foundation, we’ve got you covered. Just as you change your routines due to seasonal change, your hair care routine needs to switch to a winter routine too. So we decided to compile some recommendations that we (our hair) absolutely need at all times, more so during protective season. Winter is in full swing and this comes just in time for anyone whose hair routine is feeling stale, and bracing the cold days ahead still.
Raw Shea Treatment
Before anything, be armed. What’s important is to always incorporate a deep treatment practice to your regime (Hafro’s deep treatment works to promote proper hair balance by providing the scalp with the necessary nutrients for a healthy hair bed), or ask your stylist for a deep treatment touch once a month, and to analyze your crown always.
All 4 Moisture Lock Combo-1
For a Hafrolista, adding a Hafro All Four Combo supplement to your regime is a proven path to keeping your hair well nourished during protective styling. Having the correct moisture and balance is vital for hair performance. You can add a quick spray with the Hafro moisturizing spray to finish, keeping the entire head visibly hydrated and refreshed. These hydrating moisture lock collectables can be used daily or as needed, keeping hair strong and intact, preventing dandruff and weakened hair. So for the girl with a knack for hairstyles, you already know you have many options. These can be braids or weaves, not forgetting the handy wig. For the classic braids (Cornrows + single braids), this is a girl’s fun go to hairstyle for all sorts of feels. Braids are like the friends we go to when we want to explore natural styles; they are simple while providing a neat and snazzy look that we look for every now and then. We know what you’re thinking; what about the itchys? Those stick something in your hair because the next itch is only seconds away, otherwise you’ll be slapping your head to kingdom come. What if we told you that you can still rock without such agents of bad scalp hygiene?

Challenging The Beauty Industry Through Collaboration


In celebration of living with natural hair, our Hafro team and other naturalists came together to encourage each other, as well as to learn more about the Pros of life with natural crowns.

We’re excited to introduce to you the Crown me Naturally initiative by beauty queen, Margo Fargo, who flew the South African flag at the 2018 Miss Earth pegeant. We enjoyed a naturalist breakfast where we shared the benefits of knowing your hair and the products we use. Here is what Margo has to share with you:

“Crown me naturally was birthed through the mere experience of my natural hair journey and challenging the beauty industry to accept the fact that more women are waking up to their true selves. With that realization, I teamed up with Curly Hub and the A&M foundation for which I am the Co-founder. The vision and mission of Crown Me Naturally is to foster a community of women coming together to share the success stories and struggles through their hair journeys, as we touch on business skills as well. We want to cultivate the aura of the modern woman owning her true self. It was important to get a proudly South African brand on board which is as passionate about natural hair. The objective thereof, is to expose the Bloemfontein community, and the rest of the country to know what is available and accessible. It was an absolute delight to host Hafro and engage such a growing and enthusiastic brand. We are looking forward to further and future collaborations”
