Natural Afro Hair Tutorial: How to style Ankara/African Print Scarf || Side Swept Flat Twist Out with Scarf & Nefertiti Earrings

Natural hair african print ankara print scarf tutorial

Hello everyone! My laptop keyboard was broken for ages and now it's finally fixed, I have a lot of posts coming up, this one being the first one. The African print/Ankara print scarf (and clothes in general with African prints) can be seen everywhere at the moment. A lot of my fellow UK natural hair blogger friends wear them and it really inspired me to try one out. Instagram is also a great source of inspiration for African print scarves!  

When I attended Natural Hair Week 2015 I came across this brand called Anaisarts, it's run by a lovely lady who not only sells a ton of amazing African print scarves, but also Afrocentric type jewellery. I bought three scarves and these brown, wooden Nefertiti earrings- check out my video below to see all of them and for more information.



If you have followed me for a while you'd know that the side swept flat twist out used to be one of my favourite hair styles, especially during my transitioning days (check out my transitioning posts here) so I decided to revisit this hair style, but with a twist (literally lol).

Please watch the video to see how I got this hair style or follow this short tutorial in writing:


  • Make a side parting, and either cainrow, flat twist or just tuck in the remainder of your hair.
  • Try on the scarf to make sure it looks right with the parting
  • Remove the scarf, and start flat twisting the hair that you have left out
  • You can either twirl the ends, put perm rods & do a hanging bantu knot
  • Put your night time scarf on and leave at least 12 hours to dry

  5. The majority of hair loss is not really caused by genetics. The majority of hair loss results in the hair follicle being obstructed cutting its supply associated with oxygen or blood provide. This is vital towards the nourishment and growth of the healthy head of locks
