I first met Kavuli last year when I had a consultation with her down in Cape Town. She’s all about DIY hair care & I love that. It’s so easy to go to a salon & have fabulous hair for the day but results really come from what you do to your hair & how you treat it every single day. Kavuli’s energy & passion is infectious. When you read her blog you want to take better care of your hair…
Enjoy this 1st half of my chat with this bubbly blogger, part 2 to follow soon!
Q1: What inspired you to start your blog? Why a hair blog?
I am passionate about DIY hair care. I decided to start this blog back in September of 2009 after reading an article written in the New York Times about natural ethnic hair. Being an African woman , I believed that I had something valuable to say to my community. It is possible to have the head of hair of your dreams with proper care and information. You can attain it all by yourself!
Q2: Tell us a bit about you. Outside of the blog, who is Kavuli?
I am a wife, a daughter and a mother to a nearly 1 year old pit bull named Bella. I have a love for singing and dancing that leads me to believe that I am in the wrong field of work at times…lol. I have a passion for empowering, supporting and nurturing other women in whatever they choose to do in life. I find that the more I give to women, the more blessings I receive in return.
Q3: What one fact about you would people would be most surprised to know?
I can sing really well. I only sing for my husband and my dog these days, but I grew up singing in choirs and that sort of thing.
Q4: You do more than blog – you also offer consultations. How would you sum up what you do?
I provide holistic hair management tips for the everyday woman. My husband affectionately calls me the ‘hair whisperer’.
Q5: Good Hair Diaries will be 4 this year – what has been the most unexpected part of this journey so far?
I’m surprised that anyone was really ever listening! I never thought national or international magazines would pick up my info and publish it. I am truly humbled.
Q6: You’ve had amazing success – I see tweets daily of women thanking you for helping them manage their hair – what do you attribute this to?
I love women! I speak to women from a place of love and I give advice from that same place. When we support one another, the sky is truly the only limit.
You can catch up with Kavuli on her blog, Facebook & Twitter.
Part 2 soon, promise!
