Zodidi Gaseb is the owner of African Naturals, an initiative dedicated to the cultural
preservation of the African aesthetic as well as debunking stereotypes on natural hair,
encouraging self-acceptance and sharing African views.
Sie is also a mother, a social activist, an entrepreneur and an events management
officer at the Namibia Business Innovation Institute. She believes that by bringing
people together in dialogue, there is an opportunity to change negative perceptions on
how we look within Africa and the Diaspora.
She sets out social experiments to entice
debates and a different view of natural hair. Her initiative also sets out to share African
stories, product information, showcase local upcoming women entrepreneurs as well as
provide a platform for young talent.
Her goal is to not only illuminate new and different perspectives on the continent but to also emphasise the necessity of a habit of cultural preservation among us that goes beyond what we see on TV.
