Olive Anacaona Afrona
Stand Your Crown with the Afrona and keep your curls and style intact.
Unlike regular hats or bonnets, the Afrona has a two open-end design that lifts your curls up. This provides your curls with full protection without flattening them and maintains your curls defined, voluminous and healthy. The Afrona's two open-end design also makes it a multi-functional piece that can be styled more than 5 different ways. Plus, it is satin-lined to reduce frizz, tangles and breakage.
The Afrona is a must to keep your both your curls and style beautiful.
Our bamboo fabric is luxuriously soft to the touch, lightweight, and antimicrobial, making it perfect for everyday use.
Anacaona is our best-selling style. It has our signature hand-gathered stitch at the forehead.

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"

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.
