Thando Kafele: Advice from the Lock Star


Natural Hair During Colder Weather

A of my clients are more concerned with their style options, and are not convinced that natural hair provides versatility and beauty. Protective styling is very important during the winter months; both locks and other styles will need a large amount of moisture to stay healthy in the colder months.

Conditioning Your Locks

A lot of stylists don’t stress the importance of conditioning natural hair and locks. There is a misconception that conditioner will loosen up the locks. Hair needs more moisture in cold weather and hair and scalp treatments are very important.

How to Use Products at Home

Clients need to leave the salon with products and a follow up regimen. I suggest using a hooded hair steamer with Nourish & Shine cocktailed with Scalp Nourishing Serum, and then sit the client under the steamer for 10-15 minutes. If you don’t have a steamer you can do the same treatment using a plastic cap for 30 minutes. Use plastic cap with or without a dryer. However, for best results use a dryer.


Thando Kafele will be at the Jane Carter Solution booth (#121) at the Bronner Bros. Hair Show to provide expert tips and will be demonstrating techniques on different models each day of the event. Stop by and say hello to the Lock Star!

Saturday Scalp Treatment


A little TLC can help to keep your skin and hair in excellent condition even in the cold, dry months. If your skin dries out when the weather becomes cooler every autumn, then you probably notice a dry, itchy scalp, and maybe even some flakes, this time of year.

An unhealthy scalp is not only uncomfortable; it can also stop your hair from thriving, which can lead to slower growth and less luster. The culprits are the low moisture contents of cool outside air and heated inside air. Do you need a hair intervention? Well fear not! We have the prescription that you’re looking for – the prescription for a healthy, moisturized scalp with an easy Saturday Scalp Treatment:

  • Before shampooing, apply Scalp Renew to your scalp, massage and let sit for 10 to 15 minutes to exfoliate and cleanse scalp; it is recommended to put a cap over the hair and sit under a dryer.
  • After showering, apply small drops of Scalp Nourishing Serum to the scalp to increase circulation and nourish.

Braids, Braids Everywhere


A big trend in fall and winter are box braids; they were everywhere during Fashion Week and continue to be a fashion must-have. There are many different styles of braids – box braids, micro-braids, fishtail braids, waterfall braids – they look fierce, gives your hair a streamlined and sleek appearance. Box braids are a great protective style, all year long. They provide refuge from having to battle it out with the flat iron or attempting to create the perfect curls; an instant polished, classy look!

It’s a common misconception that braids cannot be washed without slippage…some men and women go two months without washing their scalp! This leads to a build-up of dirt and sebum which clogs hair follicles resulting in dry, flakey scalp. You simply can maintain good hair and scalp health under these conditions.

  1. Apply Scalp Renew pre-shampoo treatment to exfoliate and detoxify the scalp of sebum and debris.
  2. Dilute Creamy Conditioning Cleanser in a spray bottle filled with water.
  3. Mist scalp and braids; root to tip.
  4. Rinse thoroughly.
  5. Mist hair with Hydrate Quench.
  6. Apply Scalp Nourishing Serum to sooth and hydrate scalp; a little goes a long way.
  7. Air dry or sit under hooded dryer.
  8. Moisturize hair with Nourish & Shine if needed after dry.

Mist hair daily with  for rehydration with Quench and use a small amount of Scalp Nourishing Serum into your scalp every other day to combat dryness and maintain scalp health.

Box braids can make for a really great low maintenance protective style. In this style you can give your hair a break and some time away to really grow and flourish, if hair growth is one of your goals.

The components are not harder, just different; the difference will show in your locks as they grow healthier and shinier than ever before!

Two weeks ago in Tulsa, Oklahoma, seven-year-old Tiana Parker was forced to choose between her hair — adorable, short dreadlocks held back with a bow — and her school, which deemed her hairstyle “unacceptable.” Tulsa’s Deborah Brown Community School sent Tiana home in tears for not being presentable for having dreadlocks. Rather than cut off her hair, she decided to switch schools. I wish this could have ended differently, with all parties recognizing that was an opportunity to introduce a very important dialogue about awareness, differences, equality, tolerance and self-love; explaining the difference in hair textures while emphasizing the beauty in all textures! Schools offer a safe, welcoming climate for children and should focus on the promotion of understanding the culturally diverse world we live in.


As your children have headed back-to-school and are getting settled into new classes, it’s important to reinforce that they are beautiful – exactly as they are. There is no better time to initiate the discussion than when doing hair before school, you only need 5 minutes!
