Let's Talk about Hair

Written by Cheesa from the blog Cheesa Chat on 10 Jan 2011

Let’s talk about hair. We know that weaves are popular right now most women put on weaves on their head. Some are now even afraid to be seen without a weave. I know when you take off your weave a certain amount of your confidence is also removed too, hence some women will never be seen without a weave.

In every event or street you find a lot of women with weaves. It comes in all different styles, some are fabulous some are hideous. You will wonder how come someone put on some thing like that on their head and be brave to walk around with it. Some are as hot that you cannot stop starring and think I want this hairstyle but when you get to the salon you struggle to say the hairstyle that you want to be done on your head.

You describe none stop to a point were the hairstylist doesn’t know were to begin to do the hairstyle that you want. Ladies have even resorted to naming hairstyles after celebs like iRihanna style, uKhetiwe, uNomasonto or uSharon etc.

We know that most of our celebs like weaves and we have never seen some of them without a weave. Most of us look up to them when it comes to these things because they always appear on TV, magazines, newspapers etc. So now ladies, who do you think is the best person to look up to when it comes to weave hairstyles. 




Bonang Matheba loves her weaves so much I don’t think she can live without it. Last year she tried to go natural by having cornrows but that didn’t last long she went back to her weaves. Now she is always rocking a Diva Divine weave and always looks fabulous. When she first started on LIVE she used to rock the short weave that is called iRihanna style and it suited her, now she always has long weaves. 

Minnie Dlamini is now spotting an over the shoulders weave with a fringe. Is fringe still in fashion? I thought it is so last year but anyway I think it looks good on her. 



Babalwa Mneno is known for her Brazilian weave and this one on the left pic looks nice. Apparently you can change it from straight to being curly. It is expensive too. 



I’ve heard that Nonhle Thema’s weaves are very expensive but she always has that same long hairstyle all the time. She only changes it by doing curls. I think it’s about time she changes her hairstyle maybe go short. She’s had that same style for ages now. 



Since many South Africans watch Generations they always look up to Generations actresses/characters for new hairstyles and Kagiso Rakosa’s character is one of them. There is even a hairstyle that is called uSharon. I don’t know how people are going to differentiate now that she has changed her previous short weave with navy highlights to this new short black one that she is spotting on Generations, maybe old Sharon and new Sharon akesti. 



Connie Ferguson is one lady who used to change her hair into different hairstyles on Generations and they always got it right with her weaves compared to Ntombi and Dineo. She would change from braids to weaves and she would always look hot. Now she is spotting a new short her. She cut her long natural hair to this short hairstyle. Apparently it’s her tradition to do so every time there’s a change in her life, she said so on Motswako.

I think this short hairstyle in becoming popular maybe it will inspire women to have their short natural hair. I have also seen that Dineo Ranaka has it. 

Dj Zinhle, I must say she is brave to walk around with that hair, I would never. I don’t like those hair cuts what’s so ever and there seems to be quite a number of women with that kind of hairstyle. 



Winnie Modise’s character Khetiwe seems to be one of the characters that women look up to when it comes to weave. I haven’t seen her with long weaves. She always has short weaves. I think they suite her but still I would love to see her with a long weave. 




Bassie Khumalo liked the Rhanna hairstyle so much. I thought it was so immature for her but it suited her anyway. 

Mrs Crous, all I can say about her is, can she change that hair please. It's 2011 now maybe it’s perfect time to change that hairstyle. It wouldn’t hurt to try something new or maybe you have and didn’t like what you saw in the mirror? 



Khanyi Mbau seems to like a different colour compared to most women who like black. Her weaves are always in brown or whatever colour you call brown these days and they always compliment her skin. She also likes to have curly hair. 



They decided to change Dineo’s hair on Generations the character that is played by Katlego Danke. Everyone was pleased to see her with a short hairstyle compared to that long same hairstyle she had since her inception on Generations. 

Just like Connie Ferguson, Azania Ndoro is not afraid to be seen with her natural hair even though she does put on weaves. Recently she had a curly hairstyle I think it is called iFreedom lol many women liked it and wanted it so bad. They even stalked the poor lady on twitter lol.

Or maybe you think we should all just go RED HAIRED like Rihanna. 

I'm sure you have seen all sorts of hairstyles during the holidays especially with this new Rihanna hairstyle craziness. So ladies (and gents) which person do you regard as the best to look up to when it comes to weaves and hairstyles? Or what do you think of weaves generally.

@ Cheesa

I've lways had short hair, chiskop, brush cut r short dreads...becuase I so hate weave. I've tried it a couple of times because it looks nice on other people but two weeks always felt like a decade. This thing is too heavy on your head, your scalp cant breathe, it smells funny, and ITS NOT YOUR HAIR.

I dont like it at all. I just wish black women could just play around with their natural hair without trying so hard to look white with silky straight/curly hair. Sometimes I think if I were white I would also have a big chip on my shoulders cause everyone, it seems, wants to look like them.

Having said all that...Bonang looks okay in them.

hm....i love Connie's new hair cut. love it love it love it.

Ive never had a weave or wig (i think this days i know the difference) aand im just generally not into them,so im not really sure whats best and what isnt, but if i were to be inspired by any weave above...it may have to be Basetsana's weave...followed byyyyyy....Sharon's weave (left picture)....
So i seem to prefer the short weaves....but ya Khethiwe, haaikhona, its those shiny hedous ones were u can clearly see that its nort real. The parting doesnt show her scalp but the ...."sewing" (esih i dunno the lingo) from both sides of the weave...not cool. 

Again...i loooves me Connie's new haircut.

I love Bonang's weaves, they're always looking hot. But i used to like them more when they were short, they made her look sweet and innocent.

I would definately do the short one Katlego Danke has on. Kuyashisa so i'm tired of having to flick hair everytime, it's irritating in this heat.

I was also one of the women that were taken by iFreedom bug and i've got two words for you: NEVER A-freakin-GAIN!!! That thing chowed my hairline like it was nobody's business. So thank you very much

Weaves are popular lately and thats among women.Myself and most men hate weaves especially on our women.Its like a carvella,it looks nice on the other person actually on a woman its such a turn off for me. Most women are beautiful in their natural look but they fail to see that because they intoxicated with the trend that they cant even discover their own inner beauty. Ladies you rock,take that thing off and look at a mirror...yes you do. Another thing,women spend time worrying about their looks and most times men do not give a sh!t about that,all they want is you.Have you heard a man saying babe 'no lay tonight or no embracing because your nails are too short?If you look at it,women worry about looks because they want to look like the other or better than other women. From a toodecent man,you ladies are beautiful and mine :-) the best there is.

I must say I also like weaves shem but I dont put them all the time on my head like my other friend who just take it off today, tomorrow she's puts it again. I rest a for some time until I decide to put it again. Weaves makes us look good. I mean some of us will never have this long hair so if we can buy it why not. Mna I've always had one same hairsyle (the simple one that's almost like Khetiwe's on the left picture) all the time I think its about time I start experimenting :-) 

I do agree on the fact that it chows your natural hair in the process its so embarassing to see a person's hairlne all gone. We now see people with unnatural impadlas out there. Its really bad when it does that but ke its beauty. 

Mna I like Bonang's weaves. They are always on point even though before sometimesthey weren't but these days she's been spotting some really nice weaves. 

I also like Connie's haircut its really nice it suits her very well. Loya sisi ufanelwa yinto yonke shem. 

I"ve seen some really bad Rihanna inspired red hairstyles. Tjo its trauma some are even going all rainbow. Some pink. Did you see Cecelia on that BFcheecky patry she also had some orange if not red hair. 

I agree with the fact that Pam can rock that red hair and people might not be surprised.

That's wonderful to hear TDC but really you'll find that men say what you are saying but you will find that they shela these girls that weaves then you wonder how come because you guys say you like women with natural hair. I always dont get this.

makisto
10 Jan 2011 15:30

True TDC, I've actually told my girlfriend that she looks great in her Afro her and many other friends of hers told her so. When she takes her braids off, her hair sort of look like dreadlocks and it just intoxicates me more than the whole weave thing which is a waste of money.

I love women who appreciate their native beauty. Look at Zizo Beda, has any of us guys complained, nope and we are not about to complain.

Buligirl talking about Sophie's weave tjooooooooooooooooo horror she was also at the after party of the 99th annivesary ye ANC in Polokwane tjoooo it looked horrible and she has tied it to the side like a goldilock type of thing and during the cause of the night she was sweating tjoooo it looked horrible hayi shame am still grand with my dreadlocks thanks but shame some weaves are beautiful..

See its about being like the OTHER or to outdo them... Another thing you always worry about weight and stretch marks...I mean he got to you because he wanted you like that. And stretch marks its one of two things...either you were big got small or small and got big as katt williams says it.Stop worrying about the not so important things.

@TDC, its not about what you guys think...its about what the woman feels. I dont think there's anywoman who feels 100% comfortable on a weave...its unnatural and naturrally it wont feel natural. 

I love Azania's new short hair style, it suits her big time. 

and btw...black hair doesn't have to be short or dreaded.

She said to Kgomotso she is over weaves now she thought its about time she grow up and appreciate her natural self. Maybe one of the reasons was that she couldnt get it right LOL!

Me i have rocked all kind of hairstyles in my life but one thing that i know is i dnt look that good in my own natural hair...i had a chiskop and i looked hot but grow it a little bit i look horrible .....so i will never do natural hair..

I ve had red, blond and watever color and looked good and i am nt scared to rock the ccolors but never the blues and purples heck no....
Viva weaves for me i find i get more attention with a weave on than my friends without ..So for the guys who say natural i question that coz should i say u like yr own girl to look ugly so that no man can have her lol!!! ....

carino
11 Jan 2011 09:01

..So for the guys who say natural i question that coz should i say u like yr own girl to look ugly so that no man can have her lol!!! ....

hahahahahahahaha...

I don't remember how many times I've had the conversation about weaves vs natural hair, and mostly the guys would always say they dont like the weaves yare yare....
Its really a different-strokes-for-different-folks situation. I also know guys who say they would not go for a bald girl - mostly Christian guys - coz apparently theres some verse in the Bible that talks about the hair being a woman's glory or something like that.

Then you meet guys who say when a lady shaves her head it tells a story of confidence about her - that she is comfortable in her space, and what not.

But we should just face it - not everyone's head is good to rock a short hair. Nna i believe in looking whichever way as long as you are comfortable.

The one gripe I have with weaves is when these people they have them on for too long and they start to itch and they have to be scratching all the time.. .sometimes even toothpicks or whatever would be closeby at the time... and when the person scratches you see the whole head moving - that's not a pretty sight - and the constant patting too doesnt look good.

So nna my thing is, if you go for the weaves, be sure you are able to maintain them - don't look up to Babalwa Mneno when you simply cant afford to put a new brazillian every two weeks or have it treated as frequently as she does.

@Savanah Dry, Maybe it's because most women with weaves are loose or perceived to be loose if not cheap.

I for one am all for weaves as long as they resemble your own black scouerer hair. It doesn't make sense to rock a White, Indian, Brazilian hair etc when the rest of your body is still that of a black person.

The one gripe I have with weaves is when these people they have them on for too long and they start to itch and they have to be scratching all the time.. 

Kwakwakwakwakwkawakwa, Cariri, all the more reasons they shouldn't put on those weaves. I love your natural short Cariri, it really is great.

apparently theres some verse in the Bible that talks about the hair being a woman's glory or something like that. 

But it is just silly because if we are to take every word in the Bible as it is, then, people will be lost. When the Bible talks about a wife/woman and a husband/man, the church is the wife and Christ is the husband/man i.e Song of Songs. The new testatement verse says, a woman must submit to her husband, meaning the church must submit to Christ, obviously other people will disagree and cause a major Biblocal row but that's how a certain pastor intepreted this for us.

when the person scratches you see the whole head moving - that's not a pretty sight - and the constant patting too doesnt look good.

some weaves or wigs are sight disturbing arg..it's like most of our African women are not proud of thier hair hence they run after this dead Indian people's hair.And some are still fooled that those weaves and wigs were made out of horses'  tails.It is so absurd and boring for women to put on those fake hair.

Ladies just stick to lephondo if you cannot attain lephondo the shapa popcorns or just rock a nice afro or short cut or how about a push back..I miss those days when ladies usedto rock fabulous push backs and those sexy hairstyles

am all for natural hair, i ve tried a weave aabout three times and whenever i had it on it felt so unnatual and ugly, i hated myslef with that thing on my head. for now i amd growing dreadlocks and i previoslu used to relax my hair but i have one of those sensetive scalps that would get irritated by the harsh chemicals.

i am loving the wool dreads that are helping grow my natural dreads.

i am slo one of those people who cuts thier hair because of a certain event that has happended in my life and normally its when i went through a rough patch and i have to startover and i always die it golden brown, i love the short hair but i hate cutting it every three week.

i am more in love with myself in a natural hair that weave or wigs.

and for me natural hair is easier to manage than fake hair, ohh i have also had an afro but the problwm i had with it was having to comb it out everyday.

pitch
11 Jan 2011 11:38

As for me i dont look up to any woman when it comes to weaves though to some it looks good but the fact remains im an African and Africans dont have hair like that.....i just love my natural beuty and wouldnt trade it for any unnatural thing, i rather just put braids on if tired of combing but weave its a big no no to me and its said to realise that African women now thinks they are only beutiful with that fake hair and its said honestly

Hello guys, waving a like a crazy white chick

The one gripe I have with weaves is when these people they have them on for too long and they start to itch and they have to be scratching all the time.. .sometimes even toothpicks or whatever would be closeby at the time... and when the person scratches you see the whole head moving - that's not a pretty sight - and the constant patting too doesnt look good.

Carino, the picture just killed me and sent me to heaven. LMBAOL

HAIR. I've seen things but i will NEVER EVER do what Rihanna has. Anyway im scared of dying my hair. I have that strifpot kinda hair. It is rich and black. Maybe dreadlocks in the future aketse but i would love 2 try them.

Turbo,dreds are just on dirtier side of things 4 my liking 'thathi ikhava'. Cinglemum (by the way molo standwa sam). I like these new styles bazenzayo although i always have this feeling that i dreads ziyaku limit(a). I think you must have a certain dress sense to look good on dreadslocks. I think you cant wear everything. 

One blogger mentioned Halle Berry's hairstyle.....I wouldnt mind to try that too.

@ Carino have seen so many nice township weddings thanks to Soweton but they were very nice. i think what spoilt the wedding was the clolour. but i the traditional part.

Kwakwakwakwakwkawakwa, Cariri, all the more reasons they shouldn't put on those weaves. I love your natural short Cariri, it really is great.

Thank you, maki... //shy//

I also love braids...bt they are painfull,the whole plating bisuness is just some hella pain!. Must have done braids -10 times in my life...so when i go natural ill start with them as my hair grows.

I've only had braids twice in my life and both times it was so I'd win some bet..and it never lasted a week. It's also so painful to put those things on, yha! And sometimes they fall off one by one... you just keep discovering them around the house.

...so when i go natural ill start with them as my hair grows.

Thats the thing, hey.. the 'while the hair grows' business. it's those stages between long and short that bug me... when you not bald, its not a brushcut, and you cant put braids on yet, the only other option would be s-curl what what with the gel and all the oils that's left on the pillow.

Ladies and dreadlocks... Some guy once said thats an indication that the girl is very patient and persistent - not sure how true that is. I would've loved dreads but I wish I had started growing them long ago already coz they would be long now. People are busy cutting them now... and starting only now to grow them is like oookay.. where have you been?

i do braids but they not painful maybe is the person who is plaiting you whose hands are painful. 

i would love to go natural too but having to cut my hair first and showing my head which is as small as my fist is a NO NO. Gape my hair is very few dreads wont be nice. i hate seeing people are dread locks tse 4 mo thlohong hate the sight of it. 

weaves - ke nna ke ipotsa gore naare this people ga go babe. the problem with weaves is that you end up with o hair like Naomi Campel. akere they pull your hair everytime you go there for renewal - boKee mathata

I confess i was the S-curl one my whole life till 2007...i see Thandaza ko muvhango and i just recall my greasy head...and im not going back there no more!...
I'll bare with the Zizo scruffy short hair till i can braid...just that the scruffy hair le yona ga e tshwanele everybody but arg... im too rebelious to mind what pple think

I have my natural hair, hate relaxing hair but it's a mission to maintain it. So I put some weave to avoid looking like a hobo. 

Now that I'm busy with my exams I don't have time to the "patting as Cariri puts it" I'm taking off the weave see it in February after exams

@ Tazteeq i'm rocking a red weave. even i didn't know i was that brave until i did this hair. i am one of those people who can rock any hairdo and make it look good if i do say so myself

tdc and makisto u guys lie! when you're out in the mall or at a club or a party which head turns YOURS? is it the one wa cheesekop or afro or the one with that hot number on her head it makes ALL OF HER LOOK GOOD? 

bring on the weave! bring it one! mara nna i'm tired of shem. because i get bored easily i have to do a different do EVERY TIME. can't go back to the same thing. so manje i find i've done all the different styles i like in all these places/salons i go to and am out of options now, unless if i do something i've already done. so now when i take out my current weave, i'm going all natural. e bitswa eng that look - brush? that's what i'm going for

Then you meet guys who say when a lady shaves her head it tells a story of confidence about her - that she is comfortable in her space, and what not. 
 
I have also read an article on Sowetan, that men say when a lady smokes it shows that she doesnt care about what other people think. And it shows she that strong personality of her and she's not afraid to be judged and they like those type o f women. So really like they will never understand us I think we will never understand them too. Coz I'm sure women think men don't like smoking women. 

On the braids, I also like briads and I do them every year maybe once or twice but to me it is always painful when I have to remove them because by that time my hair has growth and my scalp in sensitive. So that's when I have a hard time with braids especially the thin ones. 

On scratching of weave, I think our mistake with weave is that when we have it on our head we tend to forget about our scalp hence the scratching and patting because the scalp gets dry and that's when irritations starts. Thina the only thing we care about is how moistured is the weave. 

On afro, I had an afro for three years I liked it, but when it was longer it became some sort of a problem. I thought afro is easy to maintain it turned out its not (well not for me). It requires someone who has patience. Because it need it needs to be very clean for people to not think you yourself didn't wash. An afro can be dirty or have those white little things no matter when you washed it. And every morning when you go to work or wherever you have to take time to make sure that the rest of it is tidy. 

And mna I just couldn't do those hairstyles that people do with an afro. I always like them when I see them on other people but to me they were just a no no. I also didn't like to comb it out, that was just to wild for me.

So I had to always have a pig tail. I got tired of that then decided to relax my hair. And another thing I think afro was suitable when I was still in varsity now I just think it is not suitable for the work place, dunno why.

You must first look what kind of hairstyle would suit your head cause some people are ugly when they are with their natural hair so weaves can take care of our ugliness

The other thing about the short weaves is that heap that always seem to be on top of the head further to the back - I'm not sure how to explain it but it often times resembles a bird from afar. The person ends up looking like some kind of bird is sitting on her. I think it's caused by the plaiting underneath and I think that part there is where all the hair meets and it always seems to be the part that itches most.

Matshepho I saw Penny's phondo it really suites her. I have been thinking of buying myself le phondo and try it on and see how I will look. I think it simple but it can make one really look beautiful if it suites you like Penny and if you put it right. 

I also think one needs to have a bit of long hair for that phondo so that your hair doesn't come out at the back.

Re: Cheesa's response regarding afros. Thats something for me to concider; the neatness i can afford with an afro. I never put much effort in my hair,im just lucky its straight and stays alryt even wen there is no comb to fix the winds work...my opinion tho',lol, I wud have to learn to put effort in the afro, in making sure its neat......wonder if i can****

Heeeheh I've also heard about this thing of not allowing a woman who is on her periods to touch your hair apparently you will lose your hair. Some girl I know went to do a haircut on this other woman. She (the girl) was not aware that this other woman is in the periods so this woman cut her hair so wrong that she neede to do go to a barber to get it cut more shorter again so that it can look right. Matshepho you put on hair pins when you have le phondo, tjo hayi I can just leave le phondo alone if my hair is short, hayi shem I can't deal with hair pins on my hair.

immaculate
12 Jan 2011 07:46

huu shem men get it so wrong. We not rocking those weaves for you...but to feel good about ourselves. Get off your high horses...not everything is about you!! 

i personally have the longest natural hair(afro) but very few people have actually seen me with it...blow drying hair everymorning aint pap&vleis hence i rock braids or once in a while a long weave. The only reason my hair is afro is my scalp simply cannot take relaxers. I've tried all sorts of treatments it did not work. It's not because i want to look african...i'm african regardless of my weave!!! Shame on people who judge us claiming we are unAfrican cos we are on weaves! No amount of hair is enough to africanize umuntu! 

Speaking of which, i've just remembered a blog i once posted a few years back while i was still a tvsa regular.. here's the link: http://www.tvsa.co.za/default.asp?blogname=screensaver&ArticleID=5907


Anyways.... Bonang's hair is always on point...it never fails her. 
Kethiwe's stiff hair yona...lets just say...it has to go! It looks smelly even.
Khanyi looked very cute when she had those singles.

All I can say it that Whoever invented weaves helped us a lot........ Remeber TLC song? Ypu buy your hair if it won't grow, fix yor nose if you want to, buy all the make-up man can make. Summarized version of the song is "You can do whatever that makes you happy" We are not perfect so some of us need a little help to complete our look.....if you know what I mean. Men don't know what they want
