If I was given a coin for each time I’ve been asked this question, well I may class myself a coin collector. Understandably the thicker your Afro (mine is regarded as 4C), the more care you put into keeping it neat, and combing it properly becomes somewhat of a ritual.
Well, you asked how I comb my thick Afro hair, and I am here to share it all.

You know how much I love natural oils for my hair and skin care, i'm currently obsessed with oils from the UK that can be commonly found yet are not widely used. I love Afro Hair and skin Co they use ingredients sourced from the British Isles. I love their Flow oil which contains Blackcurrant oil. Blackcurrant seed oil is a bit of a hidden treasure it helps to heal and regenerate the skin protecting the skin from free radicals [highly reactive eletrons ...yeah i still don't really get it but lets pretend....]
here are a few interesting benefits of Blackcurrant seed oil for the skin
I caught up with the founder of The Afro Hair and Skin Co Ibi, she has created an amazing brand based in the UK, check out what she had to say below....

As simple as I try to keep my regimen these days I'm pretty much using 2 products! I'm still a huge fan of deep conditioning, not only for the benefits but the ritual. It's definitely some of the only me time I get with the 3 year old around.

I am back, but this time with a post that calls for a re-introduction haha. I will also be answering all your Fro questions from my Instagram (@oneplus.ig) and Snapchat (comfort_n) and check out my blog [https://onepluspage.wordpress.com/]
Growing up in the coastal southern part of Nigeria, Akwa Ibom state, I learnt how to embrace and style my Afro from my mother, aunts and my grandmother.
‘Threading’ or ‘African Threading’ was/is one of the most common hairstyles in my village/town, and it is styled in so many ways. Threading is a protective style, but most recently a heat-free alternative to stretching our Afro.

How My Travelling began?
I was once an introvert, enduring the British weather and over-familiar with the route from school to home and to the shops. Then I finished law-school, got a job and a camera too!
Most people prefer to take a year off work (or studies) to travel, but I believe you don't have to compromise, as I do both.

Happy Hump day loves! it's been a crazy few weeks but I had to make time to interview one of my favorite humans Mrs Freddie Harrel, stylist, blogger, confidence coach and now super dupa creator of fair hair brand Big Hair No Care!

Get an overnight energy boost with Lavera Re-Energizing Sleeping Cream [£16.90], I've mentioned before about all the fab things our skin does during the night. Skin cells regenerate faster at night research has shown that our skin regeneration almost doubles between the hours of 11am-4pm. Skin cells do their repair work most effectively at night. So this is a great time to use our skincare products. The Lavera Re-Energizing Sleeping Cream promotes natural cell regeneration and combats signs of fatigue meaning no more waking up looking tired and drawn.
If you have been following me on IG you will know of my love for wigs, I've been wearing them exclusively since my battle with hair loss almost 2 years ago and have become quite the pro [if I do say so myself] after much MUCH peer pressure I have caved and have have begun making wigs for others. The Wig Witch is a custom wig making service, built to offer you your perfect wig, whether you are a long time wearer of wigs or just want to change it up every now and then The Wig Witch got your back!

It's definitely been a while since I've aired out my fro, alas my baby is still here and thriving, contrary to popular belief I don't wear wigs 24/7 and when I don't the humble tapered fro is my go to style. I've been trying out some styling cremes by Yako Beauty, I was sent Let’s Curl Up Defining Crème with Avocado Oil and Smoothing Oil-in-Crème with Macadamia Oil both products are for Curly hair types, Yako [meaning Yours or Belongs to You in Swahili] is a London based brand free from nasties such as Parabens and sulphates
