I want an afro more than anything. I have very straight hair. How can I get it to be like an afro?

Thanks.

    Um, perhaps a really tight perm?

    I think really the only way to do it is to get a REALLY heavy duty perm. You’ll have to get some pretty damn tiny curls, and if you don’t have a lot of hair (or particularly thick hair), you’ll probably have to get extensions to help with the extreme valume required for an afro.

    Once your hair is super extra curly, you’d probably have to use a volumizing shampoo to get it bigger, back comb it a ton, brush it out, and use plenty of hairspray.

    I’d probably recommend consulting a stylist more than anything, because something like making straight hair into an afro probably isn’t something I would trust to doing yourself.

    Start with wet hair if possible. Comb hair up and out so it gets body.
    Depending on the thickness of your hair, part it into at least four sections using a large-toothed comb.
    Braid each section and secure with a no-snag elastic hairband.
    Sleep in the braids overnight to get the best look.
    Unbraid your hair when you get up in the morning. Bend over and tousle your hair with your fingers.
    Divide each of the four sections into four individual sections with a rat-toothed comb. Do this one section at a time.
    With each of the four “mini” sections, backcomb your hair gently until you achieve your desired Afro.
