Get Like Her: The Hair And Beauty Routine Teyonah Parris Swears By
Teyonah Parris has been giving us hair goals ever since she stepped on her first red carpet and we don’t even know how to begin to thank Allure for getting the tea on how the Mad Men actress who is slated to play the lead role in the upcoming TV One movie, The Miki Howard Story, not only maintains her beautiful mane but retains such healthy glowing skin as well.
Here’s her routine with the most important bits in bold (you’re welcome):
“When I’m filming, I keep my hair in cornrows so that they can fit a wig on top of my hair. To care for my braids, I get an empty water bottle and mix up some leave-in conditioner, two drops of argan oil, 15 drops of peppermint oil, 15 drops of tea tree oil, and a little bit of the Anu Essentials Golden Blossom Hair Oil, and spray that concoction on my braids every morning and night. It keeps my hair moisturized and cared for so it doesn’t dry out and break.”
“When I’m not filming, I pretty much do the same thing. I try to keep my hair in protective styles, like twists or braids, and I always use my little concoction. And then if I do a twist-out, I love coconut oil. If I want to just add shine and moisture right before I go out, I just fluff it out and add a bunch of coconut oil, because it’s not greasy and my hair absorbs it. It adds the best shine. After that, I’ll add some of the Thank God Butter Cream Daily Moisturizer for Natural Hair. It’s amazing, and my hair really loves it. It keeps it nice and soft.”
“When I’m filming I have an intense routine, because we’re in heavy makeup for 15 hours plus, and it’s really important to try to get it all off. I start with Cetaphil Antibacterial Gentle Cleansing Bar just to get the first couple of layers off my face. Then I use Albolene Moisturizing Cleanser. It’s hilarious how I came to use that; I actually use that stuff for my sweat band around my stomach. You know, I slather that on my stomach and then put the sweat band on, and then I go work out. And then one day, I ran out of makeup remover, and I looked at my Albolene, and then realized it was actually pretty good at removing makeup. Then I use a liquid eye-makeup remover for all my eye makeup, and I switch over to the Bioré Deep Pore Charcoal Cleanser. After that, I wipe everything off with a makeup-remover wipe. Finally, I use the Unique Face Options Derma Pore Cleanser.”
“When that makeup is on you, it’s just sitting there, getting deeper and deeper. When I’m not working, I’ll just do the Bioré cleanser and one more cleanser. Every two or three days, I’ll do the Unique Face Options Special Clay Mask to try and really draw out everything.”
Who’s headed to Sephora tonight to pick up a few things?
