These products will change your styling routine forever…
Haircare is the foundation of healthy, sexy-looking hair. Straight hair can be chic, but natural hair is the business because there are so many styling options: have you seen Yara Shahidi? Naturally textured hair (curly, coily and wavy) is so versatile when cared for correctly. It’s not too silky, so you can coif it into any kind of plait; it has natural sexy volume – any updo becomes an easy can-do; and textured hair can make any hairstyle look fun and flirty.
But remember: when dealing with natural hair, you need products that lock in moisture. Hydrated hair prevents breakages and fosters growth. We’ve got the scoop on new products that can add moisture and manage those exquisite locks.
