We know she can belt out a tune which makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up, but the real question is, how does Ella Eyre keep her curly tresses so healthy? It’s surprisingly rare to see female celebrities with natural curls, so we really love what this singer can do with hers. It’s not easy to maintain big hair and we want to know her secrets.
If you want to wear your hair like Ella Eyre, get experimenting with a few of these great beauty hints, tips, and tricks from the ClipHair Style Team.
Keeping Frizz at Bay
This diva is lucky enough to be blessed with beautiful Afro-Caribbean hair, so she doesn’t need to worry about it getting greasy – it is prone to frizz though. If you have similar locks, put your faith in intensive conditioning treatments. You can leave these in overnight and when you wake up your hair will be flawlessly sleek. Afro-Caribbean hair can be tricky to look after sometimes because it’s big and bouncy, but using the right products will make things easier.
Adding a Little Length
For curly girls, length can be an awkward thing too. Your hair might be super long when wet, but bounce right back up into curls and lose half of this length as soon as it’s dry. Fortunately, you can have the best of both worlds! You just need to invest in some high quality hair extensions. Whether or not you opt for curly ones or pick straight ones and style your natural hair to match is your decision. But if you want to get hair like Ella Eyre, you gotta grab yourself some length and volume first.
Washing in the Right Way
It’s a common misconception to think that all girls need to wash their hair three times every week. While greasy hair does need regular washing, very dry hair responds badly to constant shampooing and conditioning. Very curly hair is especially sensitive to washing and only needs to be shampooed 1-2 per week. If you have very dry locks, don’t be afraid to let the natural oils return and give you back a lustrous shine.
Battling the Elements
As all girls with big curls know: rain is the enemy! The transition from wet to dry actually causes curly hair to expand like you wouldn’t believe; goodbye sleek new ‘do, hello frizz city! You can, at least, make those unruly locks easier to style later by sticking your hair up into a bun when it’s raining. This will also stop any product that you’ve used from running onto your skin and clogging up your pores. The last thing that you want when you’re battling the frizz monster is a face full of spots as well.
