I am not a Natural hair blogger, but on my blog I like to share tips, talk about my personal style and lots more. Here are Steps as to how I achieved my Afro:
·         I do my hair wash day after I have taken out my extension, I wash my hair with Dark and Lovely shampoo.
 
·         Deep condition my hair with Olive Oil Hair Mayonnaise and Dark and Lovely Conditioning mask.
 
·         Rap  my hair in a towel to reduce the wetness, then allow it to air dry.
 
·         I apply Shea Butter.
 
·         Then I plait my hair with thread to stretch it, so as to enable me comb it ( I learnt this trick from Sandra of www.naijagirlnextdoor.blogspot.com )

·         After taking off the thread, I comb my hair in an up do direction with a finger comb, and then press it down with my palms to shape it to an Afro.

·         I finally apply spray gel to lock in strands. Am good to go

Most people like to part their Afro by the side, some people like to put a hair rose to accessorize the Afro, some like to make it into a Fro hawk.
