Funkify your 'fro

Hi there,
  I love my afro! Since I did the big chop I have been rocking it shamelessly. I'm not really doing well twist wise so I just try to find ways to make my afro look as good as possible.

1.First things first moisturise!
No one likes a SLA- Sad Looking Afro. A good afro should look well moisturised and glossy.

To achieve my gloss I use a glycerine mix - one part glycerine to two parts water.I spritz this all over my hair and then I seal with my olive oil and castor oil mix. There are so many products out there that can give you a good glossy sheen (lol) so invest in one or more.

2.Bring out the earrings!
To funkify my afro I use eye-catching earrings. As elaborate as possible(without looking clownish) Choose colourful earrings that compliment your face shape. These are my faves for now :-)

3. Don't forget your eyebrows!
Well defined eyebrows highlight any afro.Learn how to define your brows and try to keep them well shaped. Don't forget to "dress up" your eyes too.

More to come...



  1. I love your afro too (so jealous right now) and the yellow earrings are lovely x

  2. My hair is still really short and hard so I can't do all this. So pls tell me what to do to soften the hair.

    1. Hi,
      Like I said in my post you can mix pure glycerin with water and spray that on your hair.It instantly softens d hair.the most moisturising agent for your hair is water so weet your hair daily if possible and use an oil like olive oil to seal in the moisture. There are other products like cantu shea butter leave in,shea moisture products,giovanni direct leave in etc. Try out the water & glycerin mix and see how you like it :-)

  3. hi there! do i need to shave off my already grown relaxed hair to achieve the fro? or is there a way i can transition into natural hair pls?


  4. Hello Engee, sadly your hair cannot become an afro if it has been relaxed. You might have to do a big chop(cutting of the relaxed hair).However You can transition to natural hair. Stop relaxing your hair then as the undergrowth pushes out to a length you are comfortable with you can then cut of the relaxed part. Braids and weaves can help make transitioning easier as long as they are not done too tight. I hope this helps :-)

  5. Afro hair seems to work better with loop/chunky earings. I have been investing on a lot of them. I actually go out hunting assorted designs.

  6. I enjoyed reading this post as it gave me some great knowledge into a few things.

The best way to comb your natural hair

Hi there,   Combing natural hair has always been a problem. There is a lot of pain involved but that's not the only challenge combing presents. Combing your hair is a major cause of hair breakage, remember those balls of hair you remove from your comb each time you comb?  Here are some tips to help you minimize breakage from combing: Use the right tool  Never use a fine tooth comb for your hair. It is better to use a wide toothed comb. This will reduce hair breakage. If you must use a fine tooth comb ensure you have thoroughly detangled and combed with a wide tooth comb first. Also make sure the teeth of the comb is seamless to avoid ripping out your hair as you comb.  Avoid these  Much better Comb your hair only when it is damp  Your hair is weakest when it is dripping wet and so combing it then will cause it to break.On the other hand combing your hair when it is dry will also break it off because your hair is not as flexible as it should be.
