Our Africaps are specially made by highly skilled artisans in Nigeria, crafted from a 100% cotton wax print called Ankara which comes in many vibrant and colorful combinations and lastly, lined with a soft satin to protect your hair from a myriad of things.
Get to your nearest sink, turn on that cold tap water, use those God-given hands to gently scrub and lastly, sit them out to air dry. Same for Afrimask too! Should you prefer to machine wash we highly suggest to wash them on delicate and air dry.
We’ve seen some awesome ways our Tribe have tied their caps, the main two are tying it behind your head or tying it under then over the bottom half of cap that covers your hair in the back. Check out the video on our home page.
Oh yes it does! Not only does the satin lining keep from over-drying, it stops the friction that would happen with normal material which would lead to hair breakage. There will be fewer tangles, less knots, and your hair will retain its moisture. Fellas this is also important for you too—decreases balding.
On the John Hopkins Website, they recommend at least two and we agree. But also, you may need to take account how often you go out. If every day, then you should consider more than two for convenience.
