Every woman surely has distinctive features in their hair, be it the texture, the length, or the color. For South African women, their hair needs special treatment and styling, particularly due to the fact that their hair sometimes tends to be rather coarse. Hereunder are two ideas that you can try to style the hair of South African women.
The other inspirational hairstyle for South African women is the dreads or dreadlocks. Locks are the deliberate process of twisting curly hair into thin, thick or medium-sized strands all over the head.
This process commonly takes about ten to twenty hours, which depends on the hair texture and the length as well. Locks cannot be taken out since they need to be cut off when a woman wants to have a change in her hairstyle.
Locks firstly originated in the ancient East Africa, in accordance with the Dread Library, and then made their way all the way to African continent over the past century.
Most South African women wear dreads. The meaning of dreadlocks is actually two-fold. Some women keep long locks due to religious reasons, and some others want their hair which represent a lion’s mane, which is pondered as a majestic creature in Africa. If you want to have a variety, you can opt for the Twists.
Twists, which appear similar to the braided hairstyles, make use of two strands instead of three. In addition they are also natural hairstyle.
Unlike the dreadlocks, twists are not permanent. South Africans can use twists so as to have locked type of style, without making them permanent.
