“International Hair Expo - Randburg 2014”
Below are some great photos from the International Hair Expo earlier this year held in Randburg, Johannesburg.
My name is Didier Simoen , Managing Director of HairOptions SA and co-director of Nu-Follica ( Pty) Ltd. It was in 2011 that my business partner, Gary Breytenbach, and I discussed the idea of a hair clinic specialising in problems associated to braiding, relaxing and chemical damage.
As the Managing Director of Hairoptions SA for over 20 years I have consulted many hair loss conditions and, living in South Africa even more damaged caused by weaving, relaxing and braiding.We have travelled to Namibia and Mozambique offering free consultations and were astounded at the response , some people travelled 2 days just to be seen and that’s when I realised no one is attending of the majority of our populations hair loss issues.
We took the decision to open offices in Windhoek and Maputo and offer free consultations to people with hair loss conditions, no matter what the cause. Our services now include offering non-surgical options as well as surgical transplants. The clinics have assisted many people to regain their confidence and educate them of the dangers of prolonged use of chemical products and constant “pulling “resulting from Braids and weaves.
We decided to establish a solution, specialising in all ethnic related hair loss conditions. “Nu-Follica brand was born”, incorporating the expertise of our current Hairoptions directors and business analysis’s and with our business expertise we have revolutionised the African Hair loss solutions. Nu-Follica is the leader and only hair loss clinic specifically specialising in the ethnic hair issues and solutions.
Still in its infancy Nu-Follica launched in Cape Town in 2012 and now branched into Gauteng with more opening all over Southern Africa .Our specialists in Gauteng offer combined experience in excess of 40 years in the hair solutions industry.
In June 2014 Gauteng-South opened its doors and under the leadership of Keitumetse Setshedi has exceeded expectation. After only the first month they have created such awareness that we have no choice but to expand to other regions in and around Gauteng. A Gauteng client was so impressed with the treatment and results that she is currently in discussions to become a franchisee and open a clinic. All the positive feedback is testament to the Nu-Follica brand gaining the confidence of satisfied clients all over Africa and we look forward to expansion throughout the entire continent in the near future.
The success of Nu-Follica comes from the inspiration of our team and the knowledge of our consultants. Nu-Follica has the solutions to restore or replace hair and offer sound unbiased advice, whenever you walk into a Nu-Follica clinic you will be met with a smile and the assurance of expert knowledge in specialized Ethnic Hair Loss related issues.
