Afro Hair Products You Need In Your Arsenal
09 March 2018
If you think growing an afro is a low-maintenance style option in comparison to something like relaxing, think again. Natural
hair girls will immediately set you straight in terms of that misconception. This said, going natural doesn’t mean
you have to surrender your life, and all your precious free time, to your hair. By using the right products, and being
smart about your care routine, you can reap the rewards of going fro without too much disruption.
As always, when it comes to your hair, the best thing you can do before starting a new care routine is to speak to an expert.

With an afro, you’ll probably be given advice like this:
With afro hair, one of the biggest problems is dryness and brittleness. So, when you wash your hair (and don’t think
you can skip wash day!), choose a cleansing product made specifically for dry hair.
Mizani True Textures Moisture Replenish Shampoo contains coconut, olive and marula oils to nourish both hair and scalp while
it cleans. Apply the shampoo to wet hair, gently create a lather and then rinse completely. You should clean your hair
and scalp at least once a week.
Follow each hair wash immediately with the application of a conditioner. Your fro can’t get enough lightweight nourishment,
so use Mizani True Textures Moisture Replenish Conditioner. Infused with the same natural ingredients as its True Textures
range sibling, the Moisture Replenish Shampoo, this conditioner smooths, conditions and hydrates hair.
To use, apply it to wet hair, massage it over hair and scalp for 2–3 minutes, and then rinse thoroughly. Afterwards,
your locks will feel softer and more manageable, making this an optimal time to gently detangle it with a wide-tooth comb.
Start combing from further down the hair strands, and work back towards the roots, as opposed to brushing from the scalp
to begin with. This way you’ll avoid breakage.
To ensure your afro curls stay smooth, soft and frizz-free, you should also apply a leave-in conditioner like Mizani True
Textures Curl Enhancing Lotion. Apply it to wet hair section by section, using your fingers to define the shape of your
coils. Give yourself a scalp massage at the same time to encourage blood circulation for improved hair health. Afterwards,
diffuse or air dry your hair.
An afro is not a wash-and-go hairstyle. It definitely requires some styling to look its best. Mizani True Textures Curl
Define Pudding can be applied to damp hair with your fingers to define curls. The lightweight formula won’t weigh
down your fro, but still ensures natural-looking hold and nourished shine. Best of all, there’s no flaking or residue.
For a little style revitalisation as needed, keep True Textures Style Refresher Milk on hand. Spray it on your dry styled
hair and use your fingers to scrunch the afro back into shape.
You should deep treat your natural hair a couple of times a month for some extra nourishment, damage repair and general
revitalisation of your curl pattern. Mizani True Textures Intense Moisture Replenish Treatment is a natural oils-infused
treatment mask for use after shampooing. Massage it through hair and over the scalp for 5–10 minutes before rinsing.
You’ll feel the difference.
