When you’ve got natural afro curls, you don’t want to hide them away. No, we want to shout about them from the rooftops and let those coily, curls bounce in all their beauty!
But how do we get enviable curl definition without coating our hair in a bunch of chemicals? We say no thanks to chemicals and yes! to natural afro hair with defined curls.
You can get the best African clothes from us but what about hair products? We’ve scouted around for the best natural products on the market, so you can be safe in the knowledge that your fabulous natural afro curly hair will not suffer from damage or breakage.
KeraCare Defining Custard
Anything that appears as though it should be on the dessert menu gets my vote!
KeraCare Defining Custard contains ayurvedic botanicals, argan and Abyssinian oils to help you achieve shiny, well moisturised and beautifully defined curls with minimal frizz.
Wash and condition your hair before applying the custard to small sections from roots to ends while your hair is soaking wet. Use either your fingers or a wide-toothed comb to detangle and allow to air dry, then separate or arrange your beautifully defined coils!

Texture My Way Keep It Curly Stretch & Set Styling Foam
To get springy curls, apply Texture My Way Keep It Curly Stretch & Set Styling Foam – which is enriched with shea butter and olive oil – from root to tip on dry or damp hair. Then twist, braid or rod set your hair and wait for it to dry (under a gentle drier or by air drying) before finger styling.
For loose curls and waves, apply generously to damp hair, whilst scrunching or finger coiling hair into style.
Whatever look you’re aiming for, be it cute coils or bouncy waves, you’ll capture it with ease.
