WHAT’S HOT NATURALS?!; AN AFRO BLOW OUT!!





The What’s HOT?! Segment of this blog aims to highlight hair trends and keep you in the know, well my Natural sisters or wannabe naturals’ rocking an AFRO BLOW OUT is HOT!! The 70’s are back! Retro dresses and shoes everywhere, why not complete the look and step out with an Afro Blow Out!
SEVENTIES ARE BACK!!Spot a FRO!!


 This look is show stopping, head turning, can be jaw dropping or cause some tongue waging and frankly it is soooo not for the faint hearted!! So be warned, if you don’t like people staring at you, are self conscious or would rather not be perceived as a DIVA, forget this look!! But if you are in the mood for some DIVA notoriety please indulge J

I love this look because if you have natural hair it is really easy to achieve! Just moisturize and seal your hair,apply heat protectant on your ends, spray very little holding spray or mousse, apply some leave in conditioner for detangling, use the comb attachment of your blow dryer and blow dry upwards, making your fro puff as big as you want. After blow drying, spray on some more holding spray( Do not over do on the spray though, we do not want a stiff Fro now do we!!) and VIOLA!!





If you are relaxed like me, you can always get a WIG!! Below is a picture of me rocking my Divalicious ‘Nia Girl’ AFRO WIG by Freetress!! Love it!! 



The key to wigs is making them look as natural as possible; get one that suits your skin tone, that you can blend with your natural hair and that looks believable, so if you are dark skinned please forget that platinum blonde afro wig that looks like it belongs to Marilyn Monroe, except you want all the wrong attention! Also look for a wig you can tweak to suit you and that does not tangle easy!

HOT Afro Wig!!



For a Tamer look, Try Genevieve's Half Fro!!Achieved by Pining up  the back of your Fro.

Whatever you do though, keep it classy as you rock your Afro Blowout because it’s HOT!!! I hope you enjoyed this post, stay tuned to this blog and feel free to partake by dropping a comment, message or suggestion!

Stop by Soon,
