The Afro hairstyle is back in vogue, with more athletes, actors and musicians rocking Afros these days. An Afro hairstyle requires extra handling to keep tangles minimized and maintain your hair's moisture. To keep an Afro standing up and round you need a good hair pick with wide teeth. Do not use tight-toothed combs as they can damage your hair.

Rock an Afro.

Step 1

Wash your hair and dry it thoroughly. Do not use conditioner after washing your hair.

Step 2

Apply a light hair control product all over your hair, working down to the scalp. Use the most natural and light product you can, such as natural pomades or oils.

Step 3

One section at a time, apply the pick to the ends of your hair, using a picking motion that moves straight out and up.

Step 4

Work in towards the base of the scalp as you work out tangles.

Step 5

Maintain a rounded shape by patting down any sections of hair that stand out.
