What woman hasn’t dreamt of gorgeous waves cascading down her back, or the bounciest curls framing her face? “Curls have been an ongoing trend that continues to show no sign of dying down,” says Boity Thulo, who helped compile the latest Candi & Co trend report. “I love that curls are easy to style, which is perfect for a girl on the go.”

We love the way Lerato Sengadi’s gorgeous waves accentuate her striking features. “My hair is an extension of who I am. My hair choices are always reflective of my loud personality.”

Let your stylist craft your curls, then grab a few products to help maintain them at home.

 TRY: Mizani 25 Miracle Milk (R184, Candi & Co), a powerful detangler with an incredible 25 benefits for your hair. It nourishes and detangles without adding weight – ideal for keeping curls light and bouncy.



“Bad hair days ruin my mood,” says model Iman Mkwanazi. Who has time for a bad mood? Once in place, braids are super versatile and easy to style. Keep it low-key with normal braids or go all-in with jumbo braids. You can also add a blunt fringe like Iman for an edgy touch.

“I’ve worn braids since I was a little girl,” says Boity. “Braids have been my default look when I’m in between styles and can’t really decide on my next look. Whenever I can’t decide, I turn to braids.”

TRY: Ladine Root Treatment Spray (R124, Candi & Co), which protects, strengthens and moisturises your roots, combined with Ladine Scalp Treatment (R120, Candi & Co) for a healthier crown.



“With beautiful hair, I feel like I can take over the world. That is when I’m the most confident,” says entrepreneur and businesswoman Tumi Mohale. Whether you’re rocking your natural locks or you’ve had a little help from your stylist, the authentic look can help you feel strong and empowered.

TRY: Redken Cerafill (R640, Candi & Co) for enhanced growth, combined with Design Essentials Almond and Avo range (from R165, Candi & Co) to moisturise, soften and detangle your locks.
