Black Bamboo Mirabal Afrona
Like a Queen that lifts her people up, the Afrona does the same to your curls. It does not flatten it like regular hats or bonnets. Instead, it lifts up your curls providing it full protection to keep your crown healthy & flourishing.
Our bamboo fabric is luxuriously soft to the touch, lightweight, and antimicrobial, making it perfect for everyday use.
Mirabal is like our Anacaona style just without the hand-gathered stitch at the forehead. It lays evenly around the forehead creating a more traditional and unisex look.

What is the Afrona?
The Afrona is a Patent-Pending hat designed to keep your curls and volume intact.
I don't have curly hair. Will the Afrona work for me?
Yes! The Afrona helps maintain all types and styles intact, frizz free, healthy and protected. The only difference is that the Afrona stands up with curly hair. If you like to wear your hair more than one way (straightened, braided, etc.) the Afrona will protect all of your hair styles.
Why do the Afronas come in different sizes?
In order for the Afrona to keep your curls intact, it must stand up when it is worn. Differences in hair type, volume and length call for different sizes in order to provide your hair with full coverage and ensure that the Afrona stands up when it is worn.
*Sizes only differ in length not width* The circumference of all Afronas are 20.5"
How do I determine my Afrona size?
By using our size chart. Find it here.
Will my hair outgrow my Afrona?
It is possible but unlikely that you will outgrow your Afrona, with the exception of purchasing an Afrona when your hair is at chin/neck length. This is because as your curly hair grows its volume typically remains the same. Therefore, you can enjoy your Afrona for many years to come.
Will the elastic stretch over time?
The elastic does stretch slightly over time adjusting to your comfort. Washing it speeds up this process.
Can I use the Afrona for oil-treatments?
It is not recommended that you use the Afrona for oil treatments. The oil can bleed through the satin and onto the exterior fabric, staining the Afrona and anything else you lay on. If you do add oil to your hair, while wearing the Afrona, do so in a very small amount.
Can I wash my Afrona?
It is recommended that you wash your Afrona in the gentle cycle and to line dry. Putting your Afrona in the dryer can cause the exterior fabric to shrink making the it disproportionate to the lining. Also, your Afrona will last longer when you line dry it.If you didn't find the answer you were looking for, contact us and we will respond to your questions within 2 business days.
