Afro is not the same as Afro: What's the difference?

Just as straight hair is not the same as straight hair, there are also big differences with Afro hair. In terms of hair structure, they are classified according to types 1a to 4c and in terms of texture as wavy, curly, or winky, explains Afro expert Anna. Most people with afro curls have type 3 a-c (curly) or 4 a-c (frizzy).

But the Afro types are not alone in this. Most of the time you have several of these hair types and sub-categories on your head, explains expert Anna.

Properly caring for Afro hair: what should you watch out for?

Anyone who has an Afro can confirm this: Afro hair tends to be dry and is difficult to detangle. However, if you wash your hair with the right products, comb, and dry it properly, you will get it under control. The most important tips from professional Anna:

How do you comb afro hair?

"Detangle and comb your hair only when it is damp with a coarse comb or with your fingers. This protects against hair breakage and pulling."

 

How to wash afro hair

"Before washing, detangle the hair a little, e.g. with your leave-in product in a water spray bottle that does not have to be washed out."

How often do you have to wash Afro hair?

"Wash your hair with shampoo no more than once a week. If you feel the need to wash your hair more often, use a hair conditioner."

How do you dry Afro hair?

"It's best to let your hair air-dry after using a leave-in conditioner. Heat makes your hair even drier or split ends. If you want to define your hair even better, braid or twist your hair after using a leave-in, too big braids and let your hair dry in the braids. "

Should you braid Afro hair overnight?

"It is much easier to knot loose hair overnight. Before you go to bed, braid your hair or tie your hair in a pineapple over your head. Very important: Use a satin towel, satin bedding, or a satin sleeping cap. The smooth surface of the Cloth helps you to keep the moisture in your hair. It sounds like a lot of work at first, but it quickly becomes a routine and strengthens your hair, "says Afro expert Anna.

Which care products do you need for Afro hair?

"Hair thickness or porosity are important factors when looking for the right product," says Anna. So you need to find out whether your hair needs light conditioning without weighing it down, or whether you want rich conditioning to better control it. When it comes to the selection and quantity of products, the expert advises: Less is more! "Rely on natural products and use your leave-in product to freshen up your hair."

Anna Baltruschat is the founder of the natural cosmetics label Afrolocke.
