Miss SA 2014 finalist give us her hair tips.

For many women beautiful hair and luxuriant locks are an essential part of their identity. Women all over the world take pride in their hair. Ziphozakhe Zokufa, Miss SA 2014 finalist share her top hair tips:

Q: How do you keep hair in good condition?

In order to keep my hair in good condition I try to refrain from doing weaves all the time as it munches hairline, otherwise known as “njibaba”. I, therefore, change it and wear my natural hair and use a clip for special occasions.

Q: What is the best hair tip you've ever received? 

The best hair tip would be from Carl Isaacs regarding relaxing ethnic hair. Relaxing it too often damages your hair and over processing causes your hair to thin out. Always follow up relaxing with treatment and deep conditioning treatment.

Q: How do you like to wear your hair?

I’d really love to get those boxed braids. It is a look I have had in the past and unfortunately had to take it all out for my first job. I just love the authenticity of braids.

Q: What are the few versatile looks can you do with your hair? 

It all depends on what hair I have at that particular time. For example, when I have a human hair weave, I can curl it up or wear it straight. With a pony there is not much I can do besides wear it straight or up in a bun. I love having my hair back, though; it’s a classic look that makes me feel elegant.

Q: What has been your worst bad hair day?  

My worst hair day would probably be when I had my hair cut as a child. I was told I was going for a trim and ended up with a ‘chieskop’! I remember often being mistaken for a boy, ever since then I haven’t shaved my head. Funnily enough, I would do it again if it were for a worthy cause.
