“Good hair speaks louder than words.”- Unknown

Whether it’s short, braided, natural hair or even the beloved weave, we’ve got a style for you. Here are 4 different hairstyles to inspire you to change things up.

Short finger wave hair, don’t care!

“Short hair removes obvious femininity and replaces it with style.” – Joan Juliet Buck
The finger waves are back. This time for our short-haired ladies. This hairstyle is destined to highlight your face structure and add an edge to your overall style. For longer-lasting waves, wet your hair. Be sure to use a fine-toothed comb to achieve a wave-like pattern. Then use hair gel and conditioner to shape and hold your waves.

Hair styles: Add some depth to your short finger waves with Inecto passion plum.

Don’t apply too much hair gel to your final look as it will delay drying and may cause your hairstyle to flake.  It’s important to note that Inecto hair colour works best on relaxed hair, 2 weeks AFTER you’ve relaxed it. Similarly, if you have dyed your hair first, you should wait two weeks before you relax it.

Bodacious box braids.

Box braids are probably one of the oldest and trendiest protective styles for African hair. This versatile style is the natural go-to for any occasion. From being able to indulge in some swimming without having to worry about your hair, to creating the perfect updo for an upcoming wedding. It’s a convenient and low-maintenance hairstyle.

There are so many simple yet stylish ways to switch up your box braids look:
1. High ponytails
2. Space buns
3. Wrap it up
4. Colour. It’s the most accessible way to switch up your box game. Add a twist to your hair style with a caramel blonde toned boxed braid.


  • No need to wake up at the crack of dawn just to get your hair done. Just spray and go. Not to mention, it’s the perfect style for holidays; we all know how our natural hair can act in humidity.


  • Respect the edges! Be sure to ask your hairstylist to leave out those baby hairs when braiding your hair.

Happily ever au natural

The next style on our list is inspired by, you guessed it, Pearl Thusi! The queen of au naturel. She’s always giving us hair inspo with her stylish and creative hairstyles. Styling African hair can sometimes leave us with breakage, dryness and vanishing edges.
”Keep your ends trimmed and rest your hair between styles. Ethnic hair especially needs a break between treatments and tight styles” – we couldn’t agree more Pearl.

Giving your hair a break between styles can do wonders in:

  • Promoting hair growth.
  • Scratching that scalp with ease.

And more significantly, you’re able to express your hair’s unique personality through so many versatile styles. Pearl is a natural at finding ways to style her hair.

Weaves come with the versatility of adding thickness, length and more excitingly, style to your look. There are various types of weaves on the market. The most sought-after types of weave are Peruvian, Brazilian, Indian, Malaysian and Eurasian. Each type is characterised by versatile patterns including deep waves, wavy, straight or tight curly.


  • Weaves provide a constant manipulation of hairstyles.
  • You can add a chic edge to your weave by using any of Inecto’s colours.

It’s important to note that Inecto hair colour only works on 100% human hairpieces.


  • Oh, the pain! The pulling and braiding along the scalp can sometimes cause discomfort. Especially if you have a sensitive scalp.

When styling your hair, pay attention to the amount of stress your do creates. Opt for looser styles that don’t put pressure on your tracks.
