There's not much sexier than a woman in an Afro. This classic hairstyle oozes style and makes just about every gal who dons one a star, as this 'do typically attracts a lot of attention. But your Afro could take on an unattractive appearance if it gets too dry and frizzy. To keep your mane looking gorgeous, you'll have to give it some serious moisture.

Just For Me Hair Milk

Your hair requires some heavy hydration, so attacking it on all fronts is your best bet at keeping it looking chic. So start off with some moisturizing shampoo. Writing in "Cosmopolitan" magazine, Andrea Laventhal says Just For Me Hair Milk can give your mane the moisture it needs. Using this product each time you cleanse your tresses typically leaves them soft and manageable, thanks in part to the soy milk and honey found in the product. Although this shampoo quenches your parched hair, you should wash your 'do only when you really need to -- washing too much dries it out.

Pantene Pro-V Essentials Ultimate Hair Therapy.

Give your hair some uber moisture with Pantene Pro-V Essentials Ultimate Hair Therapy, suggests MSN Lifestyle. This deep-conditioning treatment fills your locks with a ton of hydration, which helps you to look frizz-free and fabulous. The moisture keeps your tight curls polished and the epitome of Afro awesomeness. Apply the mask to your hair at least once a week and you're sure to be pleased with the results.

Elasticizer Extreme

Get your hair super soft and manageable with Elasticizer Extreme, says Lesley Thomas in an article in "The Telegraph." Developed by Philip Kingsley, this ultra-moisturizer helps fried and frizzed-out hair get back to its natural, soft state if applied every other week.

Pantene Pro-V Relaxed and Natural Daily Oil Cream Moisturizer

Pantene Pro-V Relaxed and Natural Daily Oil Cream Moisturizer is a winner, says "Cosmopolitan" magazine. When looking to give your 'do some style, the publication suggests reaching for this cream that not only moisturizes your tresses but protects it from heat as well. Applying it before you blow-dry your hair keeps it safe and strong and doesn't let heat dry it out.
