In London, I've seen a lot of hot Brown chicks rocking the Afro and it looks hot. I really want to wear my hair in proper Afro and have tried but because it's so curly it doesn't style. What can I do to get my hair to style in a Angela Davis Afro?

I wish it was :\
I love my kinky hair, but unfortunately where I live, it's disgraceful or something for black women to appreciate our natural attributes.
I rocked an afro a few days ago - and every single black girl at my school gave me a weird look or snickered when I walked by. I didn't really care personally - but I thought it was kind of sad that several black women can't even appreciate what we we're born with - because they're so convinced that what we have is wrong or displeasing.
I'm not ashamed for embracing what I am - no matter how ugly, undesirable, or whatever hateful word the world can think of about it.
Anyway - hmm, what I do for mine, is I wet it a little to get the curls tight and then make it as uniform as possible.
There's different variety's of kinky for our hair; like mine is kinky / fluffy, but my roots aren't super curly, more fine and so I have to wet mine to activate the full curly effect.
If you have really kinky curls, from root to tip, then all I can suggest is picking it out really good to get a nice shape.
I think a lot of people who rock afro's regularly, get their hair cut in order to get that desired shape - so maybe a trip to the barber :\2
