Black-ish actress Yara Shahidi is certainly on our hair inspiration list. From her coolly intricate braided updos to carefree tousled and textured curls, there’s no style she can’t rock. So, how can you get the same slay yourself?
Well, for Shahidi, she’s all about maintaining the health of her hair. “I have always been very natural with my hair,” she explained in an interview with Byrdie. “It really wasn’t until the request of some acting jobs I had to straighten it. What I realized is just how damaging heat is. While it does give you really cool options and allows you to do different takes on hairstyles, I had to deal with a lot of heat damage from straightening my hair or curling my hair with heat.”
After dealing with severe heat damage that forced her to cut six inches of her mane off last summer, her hair has shown her tons of love back in return. “I’ve been able to have so much fun with it,” she gushed.
Shahidi went on to explain that she swears by just a few products for her coily coif. “Almond oil, a great gel, and deep conditioners are all fantastic for curly hair like mine. I love the Mielle Deep Conditioner ($14) and Almond Oil ($13). I think those really do help with my hair. And then EcoStyler is a $3 gel that I swear by because it’s not always about the most expensive product, but the most efficient.”
Well, there you have it ladies. A good deep conditioner, some almond oil, and good ole’ EcoStyler gel is all it takes.
