Almost daily on Twitter I see men and women with afro hair asking for advice on where to find afro hair specialists in London and beyond. It's a fragmented market where lots of suppliers don't have an online presence, and @hervedespois platform is solving this problem. @hervedespois please tell us more about Afrocks -- why you started it and what your goals are for 2018? Thanks

@abadesi Thanks for the feature! Afrocks is an on-demand marketplace connecting mobile afro hair stylists with clients in London. The idea came up to me a few years ago, I had locs at the time but couldn't stand spending half a day in a salon, where my appointment would never be on time and the customer service average. I also wanted to normalise afro hair across the board and offer a realiable alternative to ladies who didn't want to relax their hair. For 2018 our objective is to increase the number of stylists on the platform and cover London + 2 or 3 UK cities. We are also working on a mobile app to improve the user experience. Last but not least we are looking into fundraising opportunities to help us grow.
