Why we love DJ Zinhle’s new hair

Getting the Big Chop is a brave decision many women make during different phases of their lives. Here’s why we absolutely love DJ Zinhle’s new haircut!

DJ Zinhle recently debuted her new short hairdo on Instagram, and we think she looks absolutely beautiful. We’re used to seeing her with a funky weave, but this time she’s gone natural, swapping out her usual long tresses for what she’s called a ‘brave hairdo’.

On Valentine’s Day this year, actress Mmabatho Montsho posted a picture of her new ‘do’ on Instagram with the caption: “My wish this Valentine’s Day is that all kinds of love & consensual unions be respected & celebrated. I also wish courage upon those in unloving situations to free themselves. Happy Valentine’s Day friends.”

Inspired by Montsho’s decision to cut off all her hair, we recently wrote an article about how having the Big Chop makes women feel liberated.

While some women attribute this kind of decision to a change of season in their lives, others cut their hair when they’ve grown tired of succumbing to the misconception that in order to be beautiful you have to have sleek hair. Another group of women said they realised how chemicals had damaged their hair and they simply wanted to start afresh.

The natural hair conversation is an on-going one, with many women inspired to go for the Big Chop upon hearing the stories of those who have gone before them.

Mbali Cindi (24) says she’s been struggling with depression and anxiety and has been working through it. “I am at a point where I want to live and not let this control my life, so I cut my hair to symbolise starting a new life, she says. “But I also wanted to take away the one thing that I thought made me beautiful (my big afro) and force myself to dig deeper and find the things that have nothing to do with my outer appearance that make me beautiful.

“I wanted to force myself to feel anxiety and fear and at the same time prove to myself that in the end things will be okay. In the beginning, I would never have cut my hair, believing I would look ugly, and always worrying about what other people would say. I had hectic anxiety in that moment, but after I cut my hair I felt so good about myself.”

There are many benefits to making the Big Chop, such as:

  • Getting rid of chemically or heat-damaged hair.
  • The opportunity to grow your hair into whatever style you like.
  • Learning to love yourself in your most natural form.
  • Confidence, confidence and more confidence!
  • A feeling of complete liberation.

We know it’s been a rocky year for Zinhle, having gone through a very public break-up amidst the birth of her beautiful daughter, Kairo Owethu Forbes. We can’t help but wonder if this new look signifies a new beginning for her, the same way it has for other women. Rock it, girl!
