big Afro

we are here to take you from teeny-weeny Afro to big bouncy Afro

We have been away for a bit but we are back now. You know if you have visited this blog before that I have a passion for healthy curly hair (Afro hair is curly hair).  As a hair-stylist I am privileged to work with lots of different types of hair textures and different ages of clients. This is a serious responsibility because hair is very integral to how individuals feel about themselves. Sadly, I encounter a lot of  avoidable hair damage and as I listened to client stories and remembered my own negative hair experiences I decided I simply needed more answers to the following:

  • Why do so many Curly haired women dislike their hair?
  • Why do we have such little understanding of our hair?
  • Why do we expect our hair to behave like straight hair?
  • Why are we happy to keep paying for hair damage?
  • Why, Why, Why is there so much negative language used towards curly hair?

A lot of these idiosyncrasies have to do with issues way older than Our Mothers generation. However, we can and we are able to correct what we feel and what we do about our hair especially with the next generation. There has been a positive change towards curly hair in the last few years, but more needs to be done.The best way Afrotility can make a difference is to offer our clients the following:

  • Hair Love, Acceptance and Enjoyment
  •  Understanding of their particular hair
  • Knowledge of what to require from anyone they allow to style their hair
  • How to properly care for their hair in a fuss-free, cost-effective manner.

Exercising for healthy hair!

Did you know that one of the secrets to healthier hair apart from correct styling and manipulation techniques, eating healthy and being well hydrated  is Exercise!

Just how does exercise affect Hair Growth?

Exercising  increases blood flow to our muscles, skin and scalp. The increased blood flow brings with it more nutrients and more oxygen. This provides nourishment to the hair roots, and thereby promoting healthy hair growth.

When you are stressed, your body produces stress hormones (cortisone), which affects the entire body, including the hair follicles. Stress hormone causes hair follicles to stop growing, which can result in hair thinning or hair loss.  Exercising increases the serotonin levels (the happiness hormone) in the body. High levels of serotonin can help improve the way we deal with stress, and lower the presence of the cortisone hormone in the body. Regular exercise promotes hair growth and keeps you glowing. The effects of exercise are not just limited to hair, but your whole being will feel happy and healthy.

Moderate to high level cardio like brisk walking, running, cycling, dancing, zumba, yoga, or any sport is good for your body and hair.  So get moving people. Start small and gradually increase the intensity and frequency of your chosen exercises. You dont need tonnes of time or fancy equipment to get your body pumping out those feel good hormones.  Exercise because you want to not because you have to. Focus on the increased energy and happiness you feel.


Whilst many of us are inspired by celebrity hair and hairstyles we do not want to put in the hard work and pay the prices they do. Celebrities have strict exercise and diet regimes often paying to look the way they do. We need to grasp that no-one will hand us healthy hair on a plate. Action and sacrifice are involved.

However, it is extremely important to have realistic expectations of your own hair and image.  What we tend to forget   is every individual has their own genetic makeup, hormones, and hair texture. Yet, regardless of these variations, healthy hair always looks great. And that should be your ultimate goal.

Will you increase your exercise now you have reason to? If you have successfully imcorporated exercise into your hair journey have you noticed any differences? Do share your thoughts comments and questions. Till next time happy hair loving!
