Let's Get Kinky

2018 has already kicked off to a big start. Some of our favourite naturalistas have taken over the red carpet and we couldn't be more excited. Curly, coily and kinky beauties have stolen the limelight with their voluminous locks and have shown the world the versatility of natural hair. Stars opted for their natural fros instead of sleeker hair dos and have proved that natural hair will never go out of style.

Whether you're transitioning, big chopping or been natural for years, 2018 will see more naturals coming out of hibernation. When it comes to hair, celebrities have started the year with the go big or go home approach and we are here for it. Check out our favourite red carpet ready natural looks and learn how to make them work for your hair.


Yara Shahidi
Firstly, we have the stunning Blackish star Yara Shahidi. The gorgeous American - Iranian actress and model adorned her natural curls at this year’s SAG Awards. The beauty stunned on the red carpet with her blown out centre parted curls.Get Yara's look by starting off  with Carol’s Daughter’s Black Vanilla Leave – in Conditioner on freshly washed and blowdried hair. Then, use your favourite cream styler. We love Shea Moisture’s Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & style milk. Lastly, to seal all the goodness in place, use ORS Jojoba Oil. Your curls will be ready to flaunt without fear of frizz.

Viola Davis
We can't talk about Fro’s and not mention Viola Davis. This multi-award winning actress is known for being a natural hair advocate. Her natural and protective styles can be seen both on and off screen and she’s known for educating her daughter the beauty of natural hair. Viola graced the 2018 Golden Globes with her full fro stretched to the Gods. Every kink and coil perfectly in place. To achieve Viola’s full fro, apply Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Cream to damp hair. Then use a Tangle Teezer to detangle the hair brushing it in upward motions. Finish off with Cantu Oil Shine and Hold Mist and your fro will be as full as Viola’s.

Jenifer Lewis
Another Blackish star that rocked her natural hair at this year’s SAG Awards was Jenifer Lewis. The charismatic beauty wowed everyone with her royal blue jumpsuit and fabulous fro. She truly showed that 'Black Don't Crack' with her natural black healthy coils and has proven that age is nothing but a number when it comes to embracing natural hair. Use Sunny Isle Jamaican Black Castor Oil to moisturise blown out fro for tangle free tresses. For extra definition use Cantu Argon Oil Leave in Conditioning Cream.

Rochelle Humes
A curly headed beauty that surprised us all at this year's NTA's was gorgeous ex- Saturdays singer Rochelle Humes. The gorgeous Londoner rocked her natural chocolate brown curls with a lilac one sleeved mini dress. The bombshell parted her hair to one side and clipped her curls in place. To achieve Rochelle's look, wash and condition hair with Shea Moisture's Raw Shea Butter Shampoo and Conditioner. Then style with Aunt Jackie's Curl La La Curl Defining Custard. For Kinkier Textures, use As I Am's Twist defining cream and leave hair in twists overnight. When twists are dry, unravel with Keracare Essential Oils and clip to the side with some ASC bobby pins.


Angel Bassett 
This stunning actress shut down the carpet at the Black Panther Premier. Embracing long Kinky curly hair smoothed down, Angela oozed class. This classic beauty showed us all that kinky hair is the best accessory. Get Angela's look by rocking Kinky Curly hair Extensions in lengths 20" and longer then finger detangling with water and Carol's Daughter's Black Vanilla Leave - in Conditioner. Smooth down the front of the hair with Aunt Jackie's Curl La La Custard and you're hair is ready to impress. 
 
The key to rocking natural hair is giving it enough moisture. Enough hydration to the hair will ensure that hair will withstand any weather conditions and never let you down.

Not there yet with your natural hair? That's not a problem shop our kinky range and fake it till you make it.  For a full fro, choose Kinky curly bundles and style with water, Cantu Argon Oil Leave in Conditioning Cream and Sunny Isle Jamaican Black Castor Oil. Spritz the hair with a combination of water and leave in conditioner, then section hair and apply Cantu Leave in Conditioning Cream to hair and distribute evenly by brushing through with a Tangle Teezer. Lastly, seal everything in place with the Jamaican Black Castor Oil. Be sure to only use a small amount as you don't wan't to leave the hair looking greasy. 

If you're not bold enough to try the Kinky Curly hair, opt for the curly bundles instead. You'll still get texture like the kinky bundles, but the curl pattern is looser making the hair easier to maintain. Use Aunt Jackie's Curl La La Custard on clean, hair for maximum definition. Apply the product generously parting the hair section by section. For more volume, lightly spritz hair with Cantu Oil Shine and Hold Mist
