Tika Sumpter’s 2016 is off to a great start! Ride Along 2, which she stars in alongside Kevin Hart and Ice Cube, is a box office hit. Her latest big screen role, as a young Michelle Obama in the indie film Southside With You, premiered at Sundance Film Festival over the weekend. And OWN Network’s The Haves And The Have Nots is hotter than ever in its fifth season! Playing so many different roles means the actress is always switching up her style. Here, the actress tells SBH how she maintains the health of her natural mane:
“I wear mostly wigs on set. It’s easier to heat style the wig hair. I love to keep my hair very healthy so I get my hair washed every week and make sure it’s moisturized. During the weekend, I wear my hair pulled back in a bun to give my hair a rest from the wig. It’s a nice breather to take the wig off and still have healthy hair.”
