A Nelspruit Naturalista: Meet Lindokuhle

by Evenes Ruth Mafupa

Although I have not been to salon for just over 3 years to get my hair done, there are many who are not as DIY advocates as I am and have all or part of their hair care needs satisfied by hairstylists at a salon. Finding a good and reliable hairdresser is the best step to have a hair journey close to Lindo’s journey. 

What’s your name and where are you from?    

My name is Lindokuhle Hadebe from Nelspruit but currently in Johannesburg.

What is your hair type?

I have natural hair. (editorial: Looks 4b)


When did you go natural and what made you do it?

I have had natural hair for approximately 3 years constantly cutting it and I had dreadlocks too. I decided to go natural because I have a sensitive scalp and all relaxers were burning me.

What was the most challenging thing about going natural?

I find that it is difficult to maintain natural hair because I run out of hairstyles and not know what to do with it.

What is your weekly regimen?

I just wash at a salon and ask them to base my scalp.


What does your “wash day” involve?

I have my hair washed and dried at the salon once in two weeks.

How do you wear your hair most days?

I keep my hair loose

Wide-tooth comb, finger de-tangling or Denman brush?

I use a wide tooth comb

What are your “must have” products?

I do not use any specific hair products

Have you ever had a hair tragedy? What was it? How did you recover from it?

No hair tragedies as yet

What’s your biggest tip for maintaining healthy or long hair?

I find that looking after the scalp and roots helps maintain healthy hair.


Any social sites where people can find you?

I’m on Facebook and Instagram


There you have it. Simple and straight forward hair journey. No complexities of any kind but still very beautiful hair that looks very healthy. Some people are just lucky or have great genes. Which is luck still.
