You asked for it and we made it happen—The Sporty Afros Store is finally open!
For over a year, we’ve been making alot of the products we use on a daily basis ourselves, but we realized that its not an easy thing to do for some of our readers/followers. We know how time consuming it can be to make your own products or how expensive it can be to constantly buy something new to try. So, we are doing it for you 🙂 We vow to only make and sell products that we have extensively used ourselves, keep our prices reasonable and the ingredients all natural. Here is a little sneak peak of what we sell in the Sporty Afros Store…
G+ Moisturizing Spray – (Alex’s baby)
After having issues with just water, I (Alex) figured out what I needed. By studying the mixture of glycerin, water and an array of oils, I was able to find a consistent blend that added more moisture to my hair.
Using the G+ Moisturizing Spray before you add your regular moisturizer helps lock the moisture into your hair.
How I use it: Before, when I had a TWA (teenie weenie afro), I would use G+ in the morning to refresh my hair before adding my oils or additional styling products. Now, I religiously use G+ before a twist out in addition to my moisturizer and twist out product (Taliah Waajid’s Lock it Up)
FYI: Shake well before use and enjoy!

Ayurvedic Oil – ( Whitney’s baby)
About a year ago, I(Whitney) was looking around for products and/or techniques that would make my hair thicker when I stumbled across Ayurveda, which is an ancient Indian practice using natural, herbs, powders, oils and techniques to promote hair health, growth, thickness and length. It’s a holistic approach to hair care.
Based on extensive research, I formulated Sporty Afros Ayurvedic Oil which soothes dry, itchy scalp and promotes thick, healthy hair growth
How to use it: You can add a quarter-sized amount of oil to the palm of your hand, rub your hands together and apply directly to wet or dry hair. Or use it as a scalp treatment (which is my favorite) by directly applying it to the scalp and gently rubbing it in. Sporty Afros Ayurvedic Oil works best if you incorporate regular scalp massages into your hair care regimen.
Also use it to seal your ends when you’re wearing a wash and go, twist out, braid out, etc…
