5 of Solange Knowles’ Top Makeup, Skin & Hair Secrets

  1. Her Hair Treatment

How she treats her natural hair: “I also use raw shea butter every day and the pure argan oil when [my curls] are really dry. Once a week, I take the time it takes to wash them and make a mask. Then I brush them gently, always starting with the tips. In general, I sit under a dryer to penetrate the mask. Then, once everything is rinsed and clean, I take two small sections of hair and I twist. I repeat the process, strand by strand. Then I take a shower, but I do not wet my hair, I just let the steam curl it a little. Sometimes I’m tired of doing all this, and I’ll do braids or extensions, to get a break.”

 

  1. Her Favourite Natural Hairstyle

Solange loves throwing her hair into a quick twist hairstyle: “I actually love my natural hair when it’s in a twist out and it’s been slept on for five days and revived by the steam of the shower.”
