HaircareSouth African haircare brands created by women that you should try


A locally grown plant-based hair care range, Nilotiqa is owned by Thokozile Mangwiro. Using natural ingredients sourced from Africa, her products are made specifically for black women who have challenges maintaining their natural hair.

“I wanted to create a product that was specifically suited for my type of hair, not to change it but to keep it in its healthiest and most natural form,” says Mangwiro.

The entrepreneur says she started her natural hair journey in high school and the struggles she faced during that time inspired her to start the brand.

“After a seemingly endless search for locally produced products, it was clear there was a huge gap in the market for professionally formulated products made for natural hair. I had no experience as an entrepreneur but always had an interest in the business. And I’ve always been a high performer, so I thought I might as well step out of corporate and be a high performer for myself,” she says.
