It has been an honor partnering with Hair Food for almost a year. I’ve found some of my current favorite products and I know I’ll continue using and including them in my hair routine.

One of the many reasons I’ve loved this partnership is that the Hair Food products are free of sulfates, parabens, mineral oils, and dyes- which is the first thing you should do when bring back your curls back to life!

Here are all of my tips!

- Learn to love your natural hair pattern:
This was very hard for me at the beginning. Society has taught us that volume is bad, that curls are unprofessional, and that it is easier to just “straighten your hair”. This is definitely easier said than done, but it is beautiful how I healed, as my curls “healed”.

- Identify your curl pattern and its needs - this will help you understand what your hair needs exactly. For example: your hair might need extra hydration, and for that I recommend a hair mask like Hair Food’s Avocado & Argan Oil Smoothing Hair Mask.

- Stop washing your hair that often.
It doesn’t have to be a full week between washes, just add an extra day here and there. 

- Avoid heat tools as much as you can.
This one has been hard for me because of the constant photoshoots, I feel my hair needs to lock as good as possible. So, I try to ONLY curl the strands that are acting up and being rebellious.

Now let’s talk about EXACTLY what I do:

1) WASH:
I only wash my hair once a week because that’s what works for me.  When I wash it, I like using Hair Food’s Apple Cider Vinegar Hair Rinse. I use it instead of my shampoo, leave it in for 3 minutes and my hair feels like new.

If I need to wash it earlier than a week, I sometimes skip shampoo and just use the Manuka Honey & Apricot Moisturizing Conditioner. I massage my scalp with it and just rinse!

After getting out of the shower, I use a gel to make sure my curl holds its shape as much as it cans. I apply it generously from roots to ends and I scrunch it. I regularly let it dry BUT if I’m in a hurry, I’ll use a diffuser (not my fave as I’m really avoiding heat).


At this point, my curls are tight, and I like going in and break them with the Hair Food Avocado & Argan Sulfate Free Smoothing Color Safe Hair Oil. It adds another layer of hydration, and makes my hair looks extra shiny!


Yes, I know I said to avoid heat tools as much as possible BUT it’s okay to curl some strands. I regularly just do the top layer or a few strands around my face to frame it better. I make sure to use Hair Food’s Coconut & Argan Oil Heat Protectant as it protects your hair from heat damage up to 450 degrees!

And that’s all I do!
