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 co-founded after Whitney Patterson was constantly asked how she maintained her curly hair while sticking to a consistent workout routine.
