About Sporty Afros


Sporty Afros connects the dots between hair care, fitness and nutrition for women of color. With one of the leading obesity rates in the United States, African-American women are at serious risk, yet there are limited  health and wellness resources available that address their specific needs.

Sporty Afros is the first site of its kind, breaking down the barriers that prevent black women from addressing their health.


Established in 2010, Sporty Afros.com was founded by Whitney Patterson and Alexandria Williams after constantly being asked how they maintained their curly/coily hair while sticking to a consistent workout routine.
