Cornrows and braids will help your hair to grow. Wearing a hairstyle like hers often increases the hair's massiveness and texture. You will experience less hair loss when changing your hairstyle. Wash your hair and deep moisturize it before braiding. Also, moisturize and oil your scalp regularly.
The actress looks lovely in a long Brazilian wig. If you are done with cornrow hairstyles, you should try out a weave. Wigs give women versatile styling options. They come in various colours, lengths, textures, and styles.
Wear a ponytail if you are planning to have a busy day. The hairstyle keeps her hair out of the eyes and makes it easier to focus on. Lactating mums, medical professionals, chefs, and more women find ponytails easy to maintain. You can reuse the hair addition.
Rinse the human hair extension on your ponytail with cold water only. Do not comb it unless it is dry. Never blow dry it because it is synthetic. Let the extension air dry and hand it somewhere to prevent the fibres from tangling.
4. Braided wigs
Braided wigs can last for more than two years if you provide them with quality maintenance. Wash the weave in lukewarm water and shampoo. Washing braided wigs in steaming hot water makes them look old and feel roughened. Since they are synthetic, the hot water ruins the fibres and makes them fall out. Additionally, do not sleep in it since this can tangle the tips.
5. A natural Afro hairstyle and a headscarf
Understanding your hair type will enable you to achieve long hair like hers. More women of colour are embracing simple and natural hairstyles because they now know how to take care of their hair better than before.
6. Cornrows plus Afro-kinky crochet at the back
Crotchet braids became every woman's hairstyle sensation overnight. You can wear crotchets more than two times, and they will still look as good as new ones. She even has a cowrie hanging from the hair to adorn her forehead. It takes a shorter time to braid crockets than normal braids and cornrows.
Sive Mabuya is the true definition of brown skin beauty. A glimpse at her makes you understand the meaning of the phrase "black don't crack." The actress is also making notable progress in her career, and Mzansi wishes her the best in her endeavours.
Briefly.co.za also shared Bongile Mantsai's biography. He is the TV star fans assume might be dating Xolile Langa off the cameras. In the Scandal soapie, Bongile acts as Mthunzi, the villain who kills Xolile's father.
Xolile breaks up with the man who loves her to be with Mthunzi. She loves him so dearly that she is willing to overlook his manipulative and selfish character. These characters' recent wedding scene has attracted more viewers to the soapie.
