Natural Hair Salon Guide – South Africa


How do you do?

I’m attempting to create your go-to guide for natural hair salons in South Africa divided by province. Besides, it’s winter and protective style time – you want to go to a place that won’t ask you to get your hair straightened first (rolls eyes), pull your edges like there’s no tomorrow! (mad face), and try to comb your curls with a thin-toothed comb (walks the eff out) πŸ˜€

Together with some salons that I already knew myself – I’ve asked my loyal homies over on my Instagram to hook me up with good natural hair salons around the country. Visit the sites I’ve linked to learn more about each salon. As you’ll see, at the moment I mostly have Gauteng. Please leave in the comments good salons you know of especially in other provinces so I can add them to the list.
