Recently, Solange was interviewed by ashion photographer, illustrator, and writer Garance Doré. In addition to sharing some of her beauty essentials from her favorite fashion piece to her go-to makeup, she also shared her current natural hair care routine.
“[My essentials are] Carol’s Daughter Monoi Oil Shampoo and Conditioner. I also use raw shea butter every day and pure Argon oil when its really dry (so pure, it makes me smell like a basket of nuts). Once a week I set up a time where I wash and deep condition and very carefully comb out my hair, always starting with the ends first. Yesterday was that day, and so I literally popped in a dvd (My Week With Marilyn to be exact)…sectioned off my hair with clips, and combed. I usually sit under a heat cap to penetrate the conditioner and when it’s all clean and rinsed, I twist it with two strands of hair into twists. When I take them out, I shower again not getting the hair wet, but letting the steam frizz my hair up a bit more. Occasionally when I am tired of this lengthy regimen, I get braids or wear extensions in the same texture as my own hair to give myself a break.”
