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. Actually, I don’t even know what i'm talking about, just thanks for the post.Explore our curated collection of Ethnic Earrings.

Hi guys,                                                             It's been ages since I've done a product review right? Sorry about that. I have bought tons of products since the last time but I haven't had time to do a proper review of each one. Its better later than never not so? I'm starting with the SHEA MOISTURE JBCO STRENGTHEN, GROW & RESTORE LEAVE IN CONDITIONER (now that's a mouthful isn't it?) I bought sometime in July.

Hi guys,                                                                                                                                                      I'm here with another review. This time its the ORS REPLENISHING CONDITIONER. Do not let the name fool you, it's actually a deep conditioner and not a wash out conditioner. Here's my honest review:

Hi guys,
     I hope you all are doing great. I have been thinking of how to make my blog better and I came up with a few ideas. I am thinking of introducing new series like the one above - cheap tricks which will feature once a month. It will contain tips and tricks I have learned along the way to make your hair journey much more affordable. I hope you will all benefit from it.
   My first trick is: Heat based deep conditioning without a steamer or dryer. As you may know deep conditioning and heat (moist heat) go hand in hand.  Infact I am yet to find any deep conditioner that does not recommend conditioning with heat. For example SHEA MOISTURE'S DEEP TREATMENT MASQUE (which I have reviewed on this blog) recommends using heat for 30 minutes while ORS REPLENISHING CONDITIONER (review coming up soon) recommends 10-15 minutes with heat. Why you may ask. Well the heat opens up your cuticles which makes absorption of nutrients much more effective and also a lot faster. However if you ar…
