An Afro is a wig that can be worn in the Headwear Slot. Afros were released on the 28 April 2009. These wigs can be bought from a shop run by Party Pete in the Falador Party Room for 50 coins each. They provide no equipment bonuses and are merely a decorative item.
Some players profit by selling afros to unsuspecting players in Lumbridge, or any town which is a significant distance from Party Pete. Some new players pay several thousand coins for afros, however, it is not a reportable scam by Jagex rules.
Jagex had announced on 15 June 2009 that several items will be removed from the Grand Exchange. The afros were not part of the original 101 items removed on 15 June 2009, but were removed several days later.
- The "Dark grey afro" can sometimes be confused with a Granite helm as they both look similar when seen from above, and are very similar in colour, to which people use to scam others.
- Many people now spam the Party Chest with Afros to annoy other players, as Party Pete does not consider them 'junk items'. They often remain in drops for hours or even days after they were originally deposited.
- When afros were first introduced, many players thought they would be discontinued, making people buy bulk of each type. However, this will not happen, as Jagex has confirmed.
- There is also a Rainbow afro, which is a reward from Court summons, after Party Pete's court case.
