Saana Lathan definitely knows the secret to keeping her hair weightless with loads of movement. We all know that the struggle is real and it’s almost impossible to keep your hair as sleek. The trick is to use fewer products to keep hair light. We know hair might look a little dull in the morning so opt for a silicone-based product.

2. THE SLICK CAMOUFLAGE

Go from the gym straight to the office without worrying about your hair. Run a little dry oil (A pea sized amount) whilst still wet then pull up into a ponytail. This will make sure hair dry’s frizz free with a natural sheen.

3. PROTECT YOUR HAIR

Did you know that Taraji P. Henson’s natural hair is way past shoulder length. How you ask? She protects her hair from the wear and tear your hair goes through when you wear protective styles like wigs and box braids. She lets hair out on occasion for a deep conditioning treatment and to floss of course!

4. CONDITIONER

You know when you’re at the salon, conditioner is applied and your hair is covered with a plastic cap and you’re placed under the hooded dryer? Well, you can do the same thing at home by heating your conditioner in hot water, applying it and wrap your hair with a warm towel. Heats allows for maximum absorption of product.

5. NO HEAT
