How to: my curly fro that was featured on Black Girl Long Hair.

28 Jul

  Hey dolls,  I wanna start off by thanking everyone on the bglhonline.com team who made it possible for me to share my joy in natural hair to the world.  I’d also like to thank all the ladies that left those beautiful and encouraging comments, thank you!  However, there were some specific comments on my curly fro featured above that some of the ladies requested a tutorial on.  Well here it is, enjoy!:

This curly fro was actually the result of a braid out.  I had braided my hair in small individual plaits prior to and had left them in for two weeks for protective styling.  When I finally took them out, I moisturized my fro using my sister’s “creamy crack” mixture of cantu shea butter, glycerin, and castor oil.    However that is how I was able to acheive it on my hair and  how I was able to get such well defined curls.   I was able to maintain my curly fro by braiding it into 6 sections before going to bed, making sure that each section is moisturized especially at the ends. Then the next morning, I’d take out each individual braid, spritz my hair with water, and pick out my fro using an afro pick to make the fro fuller. Ta daaaa! the end results were fabulous:

You can also try a wash & go though I cant promise the same defintion in curls or a regular braid out (using medium sized braids) and follow the same steps mentioned above!  I am not sure that your curls will be as well defined as mine were as all natural divas have differntly textured hair.  Hope this helps dolls!!!
