Haircare and hairstyles on a budget

While so many things are changing around us, January has not. Many are still strapped for cash and every Rand counts so we are showcasing hairstyles that are cost effective and hair care products that won’t just save your bank they’ll save your hairline too.

  1. The Bohemian Braid


This hairstyle is not just classy but easy to achieve at home. All you need to do is part your hair on the side and twist the front sections into a Bohemian braid that connects at the back. The hairstyle is fast and easy to accomplish at home with no special equipment required. This hairstyle also works as a protective hairstyle and can quickly be undone at a moment’s notice.

2. Bantu Knots


You can’t go wrong with this beautiful African hairstyle. Bantu knots are chic and compliment almost any outfit. Just section your hair up and roll each part into a tight mini bun. Lay your edges and ‘bam!’ You are snatched and you’re ready to go!

3. MPL Twin Pack Hair Oil & Hair Food

MPL hair food is such a great product for hair health. MPL hair food has an all-in-one unique formula with Jojoba oil, Argan oil, Omega 3 + 9 and Lanolin. It is specially formulated to help improve your overall health of your hair, encourage hair growth and also helps to reduce hair loss. The jojoba oil helps to tackle split ends and dry hair added with lanolin for extra moisture and conditioning to the hair whilst leaving it full of life and shiny at the same.

You can get this combo from any Clicks outlet for R36.99

4. Pigtail Cornrows


Pigtail cornrows are one the easier styles to achieve on your own at home. Unlike French braids, you need to make sure the crossing sections and the hairs you pick up along the way are going in an underhanded direction so your actual braids will pop off the head. For pigtails, you can get them done in 20 minutes depending on how skilled you are at braiding. Either-way, this is an easy and cute hairstyle to try this January.

5. MPL Black Castor Oil

MPL Black Hair Castor Oil 100 ml is rich in omega 9 fatty acids and improves hair density and thickness for luscious locks. Regular use will help to leave the hair feeling stronger and thicker.Also suitable as a treatment product for dandruff and dry scalp.

You can get it Clicks, Dischem, Makro and Pick ‘n Pay outlets.

January might be rough on your pockets but that doesn’t mean you have to look like it. Try out the above hairstyles and products to make sure you look better than your bank balance.

To happy hair days. Love MPL!
