monica goes back to black

When Monica debuted her vibrant crimson mane ahead of her Code Red album release, she slayed the scene. Whether she rocked her scarlet strands wavy, braided, sleek, cropped or somewhere in between, her hair was always on point. But the fab fashionista is never one to settle on just one style. The “Just Right For Me” singer recently traded her red hues for a gorgeous, ebony color that radiates shine. And we have a feeling this raven hue will be on trend for spring and summer! So how does Monica keep her strands healthy in any shade? Here’s what her hairstylist, Deaundra Metzger, told SBH:

“On some hair textures, too much conditioner will weigh the hair down and make it look heavy without movement or body. As long as you don’t see any signs of dryness, and as long as you use protective hair products—like the Sebastian Cellophanes Translucent Hair Color Shine—you do not need a lot of products. I cannot stand to have hair not move.”
