Afro Maintenance

Handle Your Afro Hair Less

For natural hair that doesn’t want to lose its ‘just washed’ bounce, resist the urge to meddle too much. “The mistake most people make is over-handling their hair when wet,” cautions Jennie Roberts. “Use your fingers like an afro comb and gently move roots for lift. All work on roots should be done from underneath hair so as not to disturb the top texture.”
