Such pretty flowing curls. For looser, bouncy ringlets, try a mild cleanser instead of shampoo to add shine and moisture. Rake in a lightweight leave-in conditioner that won’t weigh hair down. Oyin’s Handmade Hair Dew ($13, oyinhandmade.com) is so light you can use it every day.
To promote curl and reduce frizz, use a styling product like Kiss My Face Upper Management Gel ($9, kissmyface.com). Packed with vitamins and antioxidants, this gel also strengthens the hair for long term protection.
Another trick to keeping hair hydrated — apply a leave-in conditioner once a week. Miss Jessie’s Leave-In Condish ($11, missjessies.com) works as a moisturizer, detangler and frizz fighter. The formula is light so it won’t weigh hair down.
This retro pompadour pairs perfectly with the bold brows. To recreate, use a natural pomade, like Kinky-Curly’s Gloss Pomade ($10, kinky-curly.com) to slick back both sides. Leave a section loose at the top. Twist the bottom section of hair close to your scalp and secure with pins. Sculpt the top section into a voluminous pompadour and secure with pins.
We adore this sleek, yet bouncy, updo. To keep curls hydrated, we suggest a mix of shea butter, like Nubian Heritage’s Raw Infused Shea Butter ($11.50, thevitaminshoppe.com) with cocoa butter applied to damp hair.
