Fans went crazy when social media fav Nadia Jaftha posted a YouTube video of her cutting her long hair and followed by an Instagram post debuting the haircut that generated more than 74,000 likes. While she cut her hair to help the fight against cancer, donating her long locks to a good cause, we cannot deny that it sparked some inspiration for other women to do the same.  Short hair, don’t care – yes, ma’am.

While the buzz cut is not new at all, the surprising surge of social media buzz cut confessions while the world is under lockdown definitely gives merit to the saying “when a women cuts her hair, she’s about to change her life”.  The world’s pretty uncertain right now, and being cooped up indoors is giving people newfound confidence to try styles they wouldn’t dream of stepping out in public with. If you’re considering going under the clippers during this lockdown, follow these easy tips to care for your new buzz.

Hello, scalp care: Just because you don’t have that much hair anymore doesn’t exempt you from hair-care routines. Welcome to scalp care. As there is less hair, your scalp is exposed and needs protection and care to avoid unsightly dandruff popping up. Use an exfoliating scalp treatment or clarifying shampoo to remove any product and sebum build-up from the scalp that can cause dandruff and grease. Make sure to base the scalp with nourishing natural lightweight oils such as jojoba, argan or avocado to keep it moisturised.
