Lexi Jackson has been natural for her entire life; however, only started caring for her curls four years ago. The hair advice she as ever received? She exclusively tells Hello Beautiful, “Coconut oil!” Coconut oil is one of those gifts from Mother Nature that is perfect for every part of our body. Whether you are cooking it, oiling your skin, or using it to moisturize your curls, like Lexi, you definitely want to add this to your beauty arsenal.
Lexi prefers a simple hair routine. To achieve the above look, she first co-washes with Aussie Moist Conditioner and detangles her hair while she is in the shower. The water and the conditioner are a huge benefit of detangling in the shower because it allows you to use your fingers to detangle your curls. This results in less hair loss. A comb can really tug on your strands!
Then she uses BelNouvo Coco Castor Leave In Conditioner or Shea Moisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Leave In Conditioner (depending on the day and humidity). After, she styles with Cantu Moisturizing Curl Activator Cream and air dries! When air drying your hair, to preserve the shape of your curls: don’t touch!
