Recurring Realization: Tracee Ellis Ross’ hair is______

fill in the blank.   Sorry, had to do a second post on this woman and her amazing natural hair.  Catch is, she does it herself, always.   

Here is her hair care regimen:

“I wash my hair once a week. I use a couple different shampoos. Once a month, I use the Aveda Shampure and at the same time I’ll also rinse with the Rene Furterer Vinegar Rinse. But if you don’t want to spend that much you can use apple cider vinegar and cut it with water. Your hair will shine, but you can’t use it all the time because it will dry your hair out. On a regular basis, I use the Gold Wells Conditioning Shampoo. On a weekly basis, one of my beauty secrets is that I steam. I go to one of the Korean day spas. I fill my hair up with Gold Well Kerasilk Conditioner-that conditioner is fantastic for conditioning hair under a heating cap, which I do if I can’t get into a steam room. With the Kerasilk, your hair will not curl up. My hair gets so soft that it doesn’t curl up, so I have to use another conditioner. The other is very expensive but you get a lot for your money. It’s called Hair Mayonnaise. It is a growth enhancer. It’s an organic company. It comes in a big tube. It’s a really good deep conditioner. Then, when I want my best hair I’ll use Denman D-4 brush or the salon industrial heavy brush. I am an advocate of Denman brushes. It is a rubber brush. The older it gets the better because it has gotten softer. I also use the Cherry Almond Burnt Conditioner by Aveda. I mix with a little of the Deep Penetrating Conditioning from Aveda for the smell. And, I separate my hair into six sections in order to brush it out. So, I don’t break my hair. And you start from the bottom. The way your mom taught you. I do this in the shower. I put more conditioner in my hair, shake my hair so my curls can find each other, and take my hair up with a big clip. Leave it in for a while, then, I turn off all the hot water and turn up the cold water. Put the cold water on low pressure because the high pressure will break up all the curls that just found each other. The low pressure cold water keeps it shiny and keeps the curl.”
