Easy Regimen for Men (or Women) to Grow and Maintain an Afro

Most guys I know cannot be bothered about pre-poo, leave in conditioners and what not. They just want their hair looking good without having to bother so much. So, I have thought of a simple regimen that should work for even the laziest of men (or women) who like to grow and maintain their afro with little fuss.

Now, no matter how lazy you are, you need at least these 4 things:

  1. A Conditioner
  2. An afro comb
  3. A hair moisturizer that contains water
  4. A satin pillowcase (yes, generally speaking, most men would rather be caught dead than tie a scarf to sleep so this is the next best option if you don’t want to keep losing moisture. However, if finding a satin pillowcase is difficult just spread a satin/silk scarf over your pillow before you sleep.Don’t worry, it won’t make you any less manly).


  1. Conditioner wash your hair every three days.
  2. Comb your hair while the conditioner is in it.
  3. Rinse out.
  4. Apply your hair moisturizer on damp hair and comb.
  5. At night, sleep on your satin pillowcase or simply cover your pillow with a scarf.


Note: You can adjust this regimen to suit your lifestyle and more suggestions are welcome in the comment section.

    wash every 3 days?
    Just asking, isn’t that a lot of manipulation?

      Hi dear.
      Yes, it can be too much manipulation but I wrote this post specifically for people with short afros who can’t be bothered about stressing with their hair. Having said that, you can adjust the regimen to suit your lifestyle. Just make sure you have your four tools mentioned in the post to take care of your hair and you’re good!

        oh ok.. thanks for clarifying. people with short afros have the luxury of washing as many times as they plan to. 🙂

          **crying face** D why?? Just co wash when you feel your hair is too dry, has product bulidup and/or when it refuses to accept more products.
