How To Get The Perfect Afro Hair Bun philton4 December 10, 2017 Black Hair Following up to my previous post, am sure you are wondering how to get that all important Afro look. Don’t fret, I will be telling all today. 1. Wash your hair: you can either use a shampoo with softening ingredients like African Pride Shea butter Shampoo or co wash with a L’ oreal Hair Conditioner. This step is not entirely necessary but I like to start off with clean damp hair. Also, it’s a lot easier to apply hair product if your hair is damp 😉 2. Dry your curls: Okay, so now your hair is nice and clean, pat the hair dry with a towel. I usually wait about 30 minutes to an hour. FYI I would say to avoid hair dryers because they can potentially damage your hair with heat. 3. Apply your product(s). Using a wide toothed comb, part the hair into sections applying drops of Argan oil , to de-tangle the hair. I would recommend to part the hair into at least 10 sections, especially if its quite thick. Once I was done, I would go over each section with organic coconut oil. This really helps to moisturize the hair and give it some shine! 4. Stretch those locks: Here is the fun part. You can twist or braid each section you have made. However, for this look I braided each section and wrapped the braids in a satin scarf overnight. 5. Free your curls: The following morning, loose the braids with your fingers. Now remember, because we want to get an Afro, the definition of curls don’t really matter. I used my wide toothed comb to comb the hair. What you immediately notice is how much longer the strands look! 6. Get some gel: Use ample amounts of gel to smooth the front of your hair. I really recommend Eco gel with olive oil for this (link). To help with application, I lightly used a hair brush to help press down the hair 7. Don’t forget your hairband: Now, you are almost done. Take a wide black hairband. (link), and use it tie to your hair in a bun. You can use your comb to stretch your hair further. 8. Lay down those edges: Take a small soft brush and Organic Root Stimulator Control gel to lay your edges! FYI you can also use a toothbrush but make sure it’s a new one so that the bristles are still hard. Here is the finished look 🙂 Make sure you keep up to date with the latest by following me on Instagram, Twitter, and WordPress !
