Creating a perfect Afro is not always as simple as it may seem, but with a little TLC doesn’t always come naturally — growing and caring for a healthy Afro requires conscientious hair care and a little bit of patience. Here’s how to grow your hair into the perfect style.

Too frequent washings can cause your hair to become even more dry and brittle, so try to wash your hair no more than once a week. (You can simply rinse it with a little water in between washings when needed.)

To combat dryness try baggying. To baggy, get a conditioner cap and some oil – pure olive oil, grapeseed oil or and jojoba oil – and add a generous amount to your hair at night before bed and put the conditioner cap on. Put your regular hair scarf over the bag for added moisture. In the morning, your hair should be soft and easy to comb. Add your regular moisturizer and seal. You can baggy every night if your hair if very dry and you should see results after two weeks.

Rather than use a comb to tame your Afro, use your fingers, or a wide-toothed comb. When choosing a wide-toothed comb, try to find one as wide as when you spread out your fingers.
