In the world of curls, summer is the perfect time to let your hair be free. However, if you have curls, you know that frizz, dryness, and knots can quickly ruin a good hair day. As a curly girl and self-proclaimed curl enthusiast, I’m excited to tell you which products are on my radar to keep your coils in-tact, hydrated, and super defined.
Celebrating her 20th anniversary, this season Tracy Reese teamed up with Cantu Beauty Products.
Tracy Reese unveiled her spring/summer 2018 collection during New York Fashion Week. The event took place at Pier 59 Studios and was full of fabulous hair moments from models and guest alike. “The inspiration for this show is individual beauty and what the women themselves bring to the clothes” Reese exclaimed. Cantu creates ultra-nourishing beauty products that allow your authentic beauty to shine. Sharing this aesthetic made Cantu x Tracy Reese the perfect match. I got the chance to join all the backstage magic and speak with one of my favorite key hair stylist, Bok-hee.
Check out what she had to say about using Cantu Beauty Products and working with Tracy Reese.
-What was it like using Cantu Beauty Products?
“They are such a great product line. The inspiration was very care free. So what we did was use the co-wash all over the hair to give it a clean fresh look. Then we use the thermal shield to give the hair a more finished look. So if the ends were fried or if the ends were a little bit dry we just used a bit in our hands and ran it through the hair. Then we blow-dried it, or curled it, or gave it whatever it needed. After that, we used the edge stay gel and just put it in the hair so it feels like they’ve been running around a bit, a little sweaty, and a little cool. That was the idea and why we used the Cantu products that way.”
Step 1: Start by spraying roots and lengths of hair with Cantu Refresh Dry Co-Wash for a clean, conditioned base.
Step 2: Next, spray hair with Cantu Thermal Shield Heat Protectant and blow hair out smooth using a round brush.
Step 3: Once hair is smoothed out, use a 1 ½ inch curling iron to create subtle curls at the lengths. When finished, loosen up the curls with your fingers for a more subtle wave.
