Yara Shahidi, star of her own spinoff show Grownish, is a revolutionary in Hollywood! There are many things we love about her, her advocacy for human rights and social issues, her charisma and beauty, and her natural curly hair. She is unapologetically herself and we believe that we all should be, even when it comes to our hair!
Shahidi never shies away from styling her natural hair despite societal beauty standards in Hollywood and we truly admire her for that. She has beautiful, voluminous and defined curls! And you can achieve her curly hair look too, using a variety of products from Curlshop.
Hydrating your curls is so important for curl definition, which is why we recommend the Rizos Curl Hydrating Shampoo it gently cleanses your hair and scalp without drying your tresses. With ingredients such as Shea Butter and Moringa Oil, your hair will be hydrated and keep your scalp protected.
The next step to achieve beautiful curls like Shahidi is conditioning, both normal and deep conditioning. We recommend the Holy Curls conditioner, which has amazing slip that will help detangle even the driest of curls. It is made with Baobab Oil and Cupuaçu Butter, which protect the hair from any heat damage while moisturizing them and sealing them. Holy Curls is one of our Cruelty free, Vegan and Clean brands. The conditioner can be used to detangle your hair with Curlshop’s Wide tooth comb to prevent breakage!
Deep conditioning is also an important part of having natural hair, whether its wavy or curly or coily like Shahidi. We recommend the Shaeri Prickly Pear Intense Mask for intense moisturization and hydration. It’s a perfect weekly treat for your hair!
Shahidi wears her curly hair in many different styles and braids! We’re here to talk about natural styling! To achieve defined curls like Shahidi, we recommend the Rizos Curls Curl Defining Cream! It is so revolutionary and can be used on all hair types, it defines your curls with a crunch-less hold like no other! The Curl Defining Cream should be used with Curlshops Flexi Detangle Brush to create amazing curl clumps, without breakage and tension.
Curling creams helps form the curls but gel is what is going to keep the curls in their defined state. We recommend the Holy Curls Gel it is perfect for all hair textures especially coily ones! To achieve great curls like Shadidi you should add small amount to your hair and rake the gel through and scrunch.
After styling your locks, you can opt to airdry your hair, but for voluminous hair like Shahidi, we recommend that you diffuse your hair upside down with our Foldable Diffuser o create a root lift and create volume.
To create even more volume like Shahidi, we recommend that you use our Hair Pick and lift the roots all around the crown, and lastly use the Flora and Curl African Citrus Superfruit Oil to tame some of the frizz. You can also use the remainder of the oil and massage in your scalp and roots to create ever more volume and separate any large curl clumps.
