Dakore Akande has been quite the rebel flouting the norms of conventional looks and standards of beauty. When dreadlocks were a uncommon style sighting, D had been sporting them for 13 years until 2011, making a cameo appearance once in a while, even now. We love the length and badass nature of these locks. If you’re thirsty for dreads, you don’t have to look beyond Darling Soft Dred Black Available also in the shade you see on Dakore here, you can really look to slay this one in style.
We have to admit, this is one of our absolute favourites. Damn! That swirl is the stuff of legends. Side-swept natural hair with the obvious oomph factor. Can it get any better than this? While you make sure to use a wide toothed comb to style this baby and make sure you prep your hair with some ProfectiV Mega Growth Daily Leave-in Strengthener. that will nourish your hair as you style it.
This mum of two looks hotter than ever! She sure knows how to steal a moment and take our breath away with her kinks. Parted right in the middle, we’re really obsessed about how this Afro is set off so perfectly with those red lips. Set to rule the world, Mrs. Akande? Oh yeah!.
Sticking to her Nigerian roots, we’ve caught her rockin’ Abuja braids now and then. The hint of red adds a fiery touch and gives radiance to the crowning glory. Simply take a bunch of Darling Long Abuja braids and attach them. Once on, part as desired and use them to frame your face. Gently sweep them then towards the back of your head, twist them and secure it with bobby pins. Voila, our glammed up diva.
