“Natural Hair inonetsa!” – “Natural hair is problematic” – Salon nightmare


Harare – After my degree my relaxed hair started shedding.  Not a result of chemicals per say but stress related possibly.

So yesterday I decided to walk into a  random salon to get my weave un installed and a much needed protein treatment. I also came with my carrot oil by ORS  as my hair oil.

Hairstyle of Choice
What I wanted was a blow wave. Straight hair. I didn’t get that hairstyle since she was using the wrong brush and her blow drier had no pointy nozzle.
She kept asking up till when I was going to keep my hair natural…I have never thought of that. I just don’t want the feel of relaxer on my scalp.
After barely even styling a decent afro from my hair I asked her to style it. And after I decided to go home and do it myself.
She then said “kungoti Natural Hair inonetsa!”. Then I said No just say hamuigone – you’re the one who can’t style it.

In an African country our people of African descent cannot style their hair.?@!
