Tessa John-Connor, Blogger, On How She 'Tames' Her Afro

Afros are beautiful. So whenever we notice a girl or guy rocking an exceptionally large 'fro, we can't help but stare. And that's exactly what happened when we bumped into Tessa John-Connor, aka Afroista.

The bright-eyed beauty with free-flowing curls was hard to miss in New York's Soho neighborhood. Plus, we were dying to get the deets on her rich red lipstick. (FYI: It's Bite Beauty High Pigment Pencil in Pomegranate.)

After swapping beauty secrets and natural hairstyling tips (more on that later). We walked away with one of the best tricks on how to treat big and little Afros with care.

"Whilst taming the 'fro, I mostly finger detangle my mane," explained John-Connor. "I try to only use a comb to part my hair. It's quite time consuming, but it's gentler on my tendrils."
