Psssssst…We’ve got the intel here.



Did you know selecting the right hairspray for your Natural can mean the difference between a gorgeous halo of curls and a “crunchy” coif? Long Beach, CA, mane pro Karen Bates-Ashley recommends skipping regular hairspray for finishing a Natural style. Why? Regular hairspray will flake and give your Natural a “hard” finish details Bates-Ashley. Instead, she suggests opting for a finishing mist made specifically for Naturals to keep curls soft and shapely.
