Braids & Natural Star StyleR&B/soul songstress Janelle Monáe is known not only for her chart-topping tunes, but also for her signature pompadour silhouette, dubbed The Monáe. Check out what she had to say to SBH when we asked for her Natural hair tips…

“When I’m at home, I try not to bother my hair,” she shares. “I let it breathe and I find that’s been very helpful because the more you nitpick at your hair or pull it or comb it every single minute, it doesn’t grow, it doesn’t stay healthy and I think it should be as free as possible.”
