Celebrity Stylist

Celebrity Stylist Dr. Kari Williams
Trichologist and celebrity hairdresser, Dr. Kari Williams has been styling and taking care of Natural hair clients for over 18 years. Among her amazing and famous clients is actress Rutina Wesley. Here, she spills on how she maintains the Queen Sugar star’s stunning mane.

What care tips do you give Rutina to care for her locs?
“The first tip that I give her is to shampoo her hair 1-2 times a month with a clarifying shampoo based on her level of activity. The second tip is to apply essential oils to the hair and scalp 2-3 times a week. Lastly, I recommend using my Dr. K Daily Spray to maintain moisture and prevent her locs from becoming dry and brittle.”

Do you have some hair goals you focus on when caring for Rutina’s locs?
“My focus is always creating a foundation for healthy, strong hair growth—which is a combination of cleansing and conditioning the hair then sealing in moisture.”

NATURAL HAIR TIP: “Always thoroughly detangle your hair before shampooing.”
