The natural hair movement is one that has greatly captured the world.
Women from all over have gone back to embracing their natural hair textures and are rocking them without any apologies!
Today we’ve featured five naturalistas from Kenya who are oozing manespiration.
Part of the talented Elani Music group, Kunga has a beautiful mane, which many Kenyan girls only dream of having!
She’s one of the few celebrities who wear out their afro almost daily and have mastered the art of keeping it thick, full and hydrated! With over 150,000 Instagram followers, her natural hair is seen in its full glory in almost all her posts.
Several Kenyan natural hair care brands have not hesitated to partner with the gifted artist and we definitely see why. A music mogul and naturalista, she is definitely our hair inspiration.

Kihoro is a Jane of all trades. She’s graced the entertainment industry with her popular show on Kenya’s No. 1 Hip Hop radio station, HomeBoyz Radio, and she’s an actress, singer, comedian, event host, fashion icon, YouTuber and of course a naturalista.
Patricia has retained her TWA for as long as she’s been in the public eye, a trend that many Kenyan women have also adopted in many different forms and styles. She knows how to switch it up with a wig, head wrap, braids, and even going as far as dying it blond!
Her style always incorporates a hint of Africa — from Kenyan-made brass jewelry to beaded chokers, Kihoro stays true to who she is and her warm personality is evident in everything she does!

Kambua Munundu has touched and blessed many Kenyans with her talent in gospel music and she too has not shied away from flaunting her natural hair. She’s known to have her hair mostly in protective styles such as braids, hair extensions, wigs, and head wraps.
Even when she wears her hair out, she keeps her styling versatile. She’ll rock a sleek bun or a low puff. We can surely say that she’s not only a hair inspiration but the epitome of African beauty!
