How to Get the Perfect Afro

When it comes to expressing your individuality and confidence, an Afro is an iconic choice.

To help you rock this legendary look, we’re here to guide you through creating a stunning
Afro hairstyle while keeping your hair healthy, hydrated, and frizz-free.

Preparing Your Hair

Before diving into styling, it’s crucial to give your hair the care it deserves. Start by washing
your hair with Cantu’s Sulfate-Free Cleansing Cream Shampoo. This gentle formula
cleanses without stripping your hair of its natural oils, ensuring a clean slate for styling.
Follow up with Cantu’s Hydrating Cream Conditioner to provide your hair with essential
moisture. Leave the conditioner in for a few minutes to allow it to penetrate deeply, then
rinse thoroughly.

Apply Leave-In

After washing and conditioning, it’s time to lock in moisture and create a solid foundation for
your Afro hairstyle. Apply a generous amount of Cantu’s Leave-In Conditioning Repair
to damp hair. This lightweight formula not only hydrates but also helps detangle your
hair, making it easier to style without causing damage.

Section and Detangle

Divide your hair into manageable sections to ensure even product distribution. Use a wide-
tooth comb or your fingers to gently detangle each section, starting from the ends and
working your way up to the roots. This step prevents unnecessary breakage and helps your
Afro hairstyle maintain its shape and volume.

Define & Shine

For defined curls and added shine, reach for Cantu’s Define & Shine Custard. Take a
small amount and rub it between your palms to emulsify the product. Apply it to each section
of your hair, smoothing and scrunching as you go. This custard not only helps define your
natural curls but also tames frizz, ensuring a sleek finish.

Shape Your ‘Fro

Now comes the exciting part – shaping your Afro! Gently fluff and separate your curls using
your fingers to achieve the desired volume and shape. For extra lift at the roots, use a pick
or Afro comb to gently tease your hair. Remember that Afro hairstyles embrace natural
texture, so don’t be afraid to let your curls do their thing!

Seal the Style

To ensure your Afro hairstyle lasts throughout the day, try Cantu’s Coconut Oil Shine &
Hold Mist
. This lightweight mist not only adds a natural shine to your hair but also provides
a light hold that keeps your curls in place without making them stiff. Hold the bottle about 10
inches away from your hair and mist lightly for an all-day radiance.

Nighttime Care

Maintaining your Afro’s integrity while you sleep is essential. Before bed, gather your hair
gently and secure it with a silk or satin scarf or bonnet. This helps prevent friction and keeps
your curls looking fresh the next day.

Refresh as Needed

Throughout the week, refresh your ‘fro using Cantu’s Comeback Curl Next Day Curl
. This spray revitalises your curls, reduces frizz and adds a burst of shine without
weighing your hair down. Simply spray it lightly over your hair and fluff for a quick pick-me-

With the right products and a little know-how, achieving a fabulous ‘fro is well within your
reach. Embrace your natural curls, keep them moisturized, and make a bold statement that’s
uniquely you.

So, go ahead and rock that Afro with confidence all year long!
