Are you ready to comb England for Afro curls?

Combing England for Afro Curls

Combing England for Afro Curls


My name is Nwadiogo Quartey-Ngwube and I’m a journalism student from Bournemouth University doing my final journalism project. The final project is required to get the full masters degree and entails us putting together a site on wordpress in which we investigate a topic of our choice. My final project titled ‘Combing England for Afro Curls’ came about in my quest for more natural hair care options. As a woman who “rocks” afro hair on a daily basis in England I find it hard sometimes to find healthy, affordable, hair care options.

I noticed, as many other African and Caribbean women may have already noticed, a lot of the advice for natural hair care comes from the United States. And as great as having any information on Afro hair is, I wanted to produce articles, videos, and audio on Afro hair care issues in England and dig deeper into why the industry is what it is for women in England. I want to find out whether people are happy with the options available to them. I want to find out what people’s metality towards Afro hair is in England. And I want to tackle popular myths about styling optiones, especially the never-ending debate on relaxers vs non-relaxed hair.

By the end of this project I hope that everyone who participates in my discussions, reads my posts, or comes in contact with this project in any way, shape or form will leave a little more enlightened about the Afro hair care industry and spark more conversation about alternative hair options for African and Caribbean women.

Thank you,


PS Please bear with me as this site goes through various changes. As I get further into this invesitgation the site’s information will get updates and beautified up until the final deadline. So don’t be alarmed!
