Afope - TRICHOLOGIST & HAIRCARE SPECIALIST

Disillusioned with the longstanding detrimental practices and misconceptions towards black haircare, Afope founded her haircare company, Faahri, upon her belief in "good (healthy) hair". That it has no preferred racial mix, curl pattern, or proneness to shrinkage - and is attainable by anyone who is prepared to invest in their hair.

By combining her trichological expertise and practical know-how as a hairdresser, she offers a more holistic solution to the problems that have plagued women of colour. In addition to trichological consultations (diagnoses and treatment prescription), she offers her clients healthier approaches to styling, corrective deep-treatments, and haircare regimens. All of which can be tailored according to a scientifically determined hair profile she develops for each client, to ensure their unique hair needs are met with accuracy every time.
