The magnanimous AFRO, sometimes shortened to ‘fro and also known as a “natural”, is a hairstyle worn by people with lengthy kinky hair texture or specifically styled in such a fashion by individuals with naturally curly or straight hair.

This is the Wikipedia definition. And it will suffice.

However for those who proudly claim any ounce of African descent, the afro is less the definition of something that is done to the hair, but instead, more the definition of something the hair just does. Naturally.
