AFOPE - TRICHOLOGIST & HAIRCARE SPECIALIST
Disillusioned with the longstanding detrimental practices and misconceptions towards black haircare, Afope founded her haircare company, Faahri, upon her belief in "good (healthy) hair".

By combining her trichological expertise and practical know-how as a hairdresser, she offers a more holistic solution to the problems that have plagued women of colour. In addition to trichological consultations (diagnoses and treatment prescription), she offers her clients healthier approaches to styling, corrective deep-treatments, and haircare regimens.
