Hi I’m Aphro, a hair blogger and consultant. Thank you for checking out my blog. I’m here to give you strategies on attaining and maintaining healthy hair. Evidence shows that healthy hair is hair that grows. My clients and I are walking testimonies that black hair DOES grow.
I’ve worked with women who had receding hair lines, bald patches in the middle of their head, thinning relaxed hair, breaking hair … etc and am honoured to say that time and again my hair care philosophies are working.
This is where I started … No matter how long your hair is, or what state it’s in, the aim for you personally, should be to attain then maintain healthy hair. Growth will naturally come after this is reached. My overall goal is to have healthy hair, no matter how I choose to style it.
I started a series of ‘hair challenges’ that give you practical ways of getting your hair healthy. I’d love to see ladies with healthy hair, no matter what their length is.
Hair Challenges are a structured mechanism to get you on the path of dealing with a problem and attaining healthy hair. They run for a specific time and follow a set of rules that have been designed to ensure that you see results.
Hair Challenges start you on a journey to healthy hair, once you have healthy hair, you will realise GROWTH. A derivative of healthy hair is hair that grows.
Hair Challenges comprise of the following:
- a goal that deals with problem areas like dandruff, dry brittle hair, receding hair line, traction alopecia, thin dull lifeless hair and hair that doesn’t seem to grow
- a time-limit
- rules to follow during the challenge
- results at the end of the challenge
There’s one step you need to take before taking on any hair challenge, and that’s assessing your hair type. Knowing your hair type is a critical first step to understanding what its unique needs are.
Now you know your hair type, choose the hair challenge that will deal with your problem. Only substitute with the product you need … and be on your way.
Castor Oil Challenge – for dry hair and an introduction to products that work
Back 2 Health Challenge – for dry hair, problem scalp and split ends. This is an introduction to a basic hair care routine

These are my results so far. Happy Hair Journey Ladies!
