Afro Goals: What You Need to Put Your Best ‘Fro Forward

The essentials for your afro styles.

Leave it up to us and we’ll tell you that everyone that wears an afro is literally #hairgoals. Truth be told, not many of us can actually pull it off (or so we think). Women take time to perfect their afro styles to achieve their afro goals from focusing on the shape to the best products that accentuate their curls or enhances the texture.

If you’re in need of new products to help you be on your merry way to afro goals, read on for our top picks:

1. A Styling Cream or Gel

Depending on your hair type, or your style preference, you may choose a gel over a cream. If you are aiming for super defined curls with a hold, we suggest using a gel like Suave Professionals Define Shine Serum Gel. Rather, less hold then use Suave Professionals Curl Defining Cream. Both of these products moisturize well so no need to worry about having dry hair.

2. Cleansing Conditioner

In order to always have the ultimate afro goals, you have to have a good natural hair care routine. The way you take care of your hair can make a huge difference. We suggest using a hydrating cleansing conditioner to care for your curls (if you don’t already do so). Try Love Beauty and Planet Purposeful Hydration Cleansing Conditioner to wash your hair. This formula is suitable for all curly hair types and leaves your hair soft and moisturized.

3. A Good Heat Protectant

Use a hair dryer to amplify your afro? Make sure you’re using a good heat protectant so you don’t damage your curls. We like using TRESemmé Thermal Creations Heat Tamer Spray. Apply a few spritzes of the product throughout your hair and blowdry until you reach the length and volume you want for your afros style.
