Enjoying my last Afro
Before starting locs, I wanted to do an Afro just one more time. It’s my favorite hairstyle and I wonder if I am going to miss it. Since I have had quite a few questions about my fro over the years, I made a how to make an Afro video that hopefully answers your questions and gives you some ideas you didn’t think about.
Making an Afro is pretty simple. To get the maximum stretch however, it’s best to braid your hair. Cornrows are the best way to make a stretched afro. Since I am not that great at cornrows, I just did it with braids.
The absolute easiest way to detangle natural hair is in the shower. That is how I do it all the time but for demonstration purposes, I detangled in front of the mirror. Usually I add Silky Shea Hair Butter when my hair is completely wet then I start taking parts, untangle and twist up my hair. As you can see that is how I start in the video.
Since my hair is already moisturized, I used the Scalp Conditioning Spray give my hair a little more slip which makes it easier to detangle. For a change, I also used the Curl Keeper to curl up the ends nicely.
I have to say that I tremendously enjoyed my last Afro. I know I am not going to be able to wear it for at least 10 years. No, I didn’t feel sad at all. It’s time for a change. I am looking forward to a whole new chapter. Hopefully you find the video useful, I hope you enjoy watching and I look forward to your comments.
