We know that Afro hair is incredible, but all that texture does require some maintenance. So, we have mastered the perfect techniques for cutting Afro hair, identifying your curl pattern, and maintaining your hair health.
Afro hair grows out, not down – so it can’t be cut the same way as hair that hangs. There is nothing more gorgeous than voluminous Afro hair, and we know just how to keep it in perfect condition.
Afro Hair Dry Cutting
All the professional stylists at Delilah are experts in dry cutting hair, and this is the best way to cut Afro hair. Because Afro hair has such tight coils, wet hair can experience shrinkage. This means that cutting it wet can result in more hair being removed than you want – disaster!
Luckily, we cut your hair dry to keep that amazing volume and bounce. We know how to maintain shape and keep your ends tangle free, for a more streamlined care regime.

When it comes to Afro hair maintenance, think hydration, hydration, hydration! Afro hair is more susceptible to dryness and breakage because of the kinks along the hair strand. This means that all owners of amazing Afro hair need to have a routine in place to keep their hair well-nourished and moisturised.
Delilah make our own range of Delilah Curl Creams that are designed to enrich curly hair with nutrients. They are full of essential oils to deeply hydrate your Afro hair. Keeping your curls healthy and strong means you will have that amazing big hair bounce for longer between haircuts!
Afro Hair Cutting Tips
Are you the proud owner of Afro hair for the first time? Many people who naturally have Afro hair will wear it in other styles for years, so you may not know the basics when it comes to caring for your incredible natural locks.
For Afro hair to look and feel its best, you should get a hair cut every six to eight weeks. If you feel like your hair isn’t growing that much, you may be experiencing breakage and you should consider a new hair care routine.
Afro hair doesn’t need to be washed as often as straight hair. Too much washing can strip away your natural oils and leave your hair feeling dry. Washing your hair only once or twice a week is fine. In between washes, you can try conditioning to put more moisture into your hair.
