Africa's Haircare Boom - 7 Aug 2014
Sitting in a makeshift salon, a client has her hair braided in Soweto – a common sight not only in South Africa, but in countries across the continent where hairdressers are often a fixture of markets and taxi ranks.

While still largely based in the informal economy, the African haircare business has become a multi-billion dollar industry that stretches to China and India and has drawn global giants such as L'Oreal and Unilever .
