SPOTLIGHT FEATURE : KATLEGO TEFU


FASHION, SPOTLIGHT / Friday, March 8th, 2019

 My name is Katlego Tefu, I am a content creator, digital marketer, naturalista, model and law student who was born and raised in Polokwane. My content is created focusing on my passion for natural haircare, style, travel, beauty and women empowerment. My aim is curate content and create platforms that represent,cater to and empower women of color in every aspect of life.

2.Your hair has a ton of volume! How do you do it?

Definitely good genes! I’ve always had a lot of hair, and although I take good care of my hair, that’s something I’ve never struggled with!

3.Who is/are the natural hair guru(s) that you look up to?

None really. When I started my Natural hair care journey, I wasn’t on YouTube and I was extremely new to Instagram so not only did I not have that one person I could follow and learn from but I didn’t even know those people existed. I had to google everything and teach myself. When I joined those platforms, I never really looked for one.

4. Have you always been a natural girl, if not what prompted the change?

For as long as I remember I have always used relaxer, it hardly ever worked cause I have a lot of hair and a sensitive scalp, but I have always had chemically processes hair. Solange propmted the change. I was looking to change my hairstyle and I was really inlove with Solange’s Afro so I transitioned!

5. Kindly give us essentials tips on keep your hair healthy?

My number 1 tip is to water your hair! Literally! Dry hair, dry scalp, unmanageable hair, elasticity, just overall health of your hair and scalp, water is the answer. Use it daily! Twice a day if you have to!

6. Not only do you enjoy natural hair care, but you are also a fashion enthusiast. How would you describe your sense of style?

Minimalistic and Classic. As of late I’m experimenting more with color to add that pop to my looks and make them more fashionable but classic styles, cuts and colors, are my vibe! But I truly appreciate all fashion, from streetstyle to couture, it’s all beautiful.

7.You can only buy your outfits from 4 stores for the next year. What 4 stores would you choose?

Woolworths, Zara, H&M and Mr Price. Special mention to Superbalist cause they have everything you could want and Lovisa for their jewelry.

8.Why did you decide on opening a YouTube channel, how have you grown from it?

Short answer, it was simply the next step. The next step in my haircare journey and my content creation. I have grown so much in the past 6 months, I’ve definitely learned some discipline and commitment. Having a channel is such a commitment. Weekly videos means shooting and editing weekly. I have a lot of late nights but i get it done,and always feel fulfilled.

9.What is your self care routine?

Prayer & meditation, doing my skincare and haircare routines, putting on my candles, going through my magazines and listening to music. All these things make me feel good inside and out.

10.Lastly what would you say to your 16 year old self?

I am proud of you for always knowing who and what you are. A strong, assertive and opinionated young lady. And the older you get, the more you’ll realize that those traits are what set you apart.
