During New York Fashion Week: Men’s S/S 2017 at the ultra-trendy Meatpacking District venue, Industria, Lead Hairstylist, T. Cooper of Metro Look, and her team were sponsored by ECRU New York and Conair to create wet natural textured hairstyles for the BENCH/Body show. BENCH/Body is the market leader for underwear in the Philippines. They carry a wide range of premium quality undergarments including basic, trendy, and sexy at affordable prices.
Cooper named the style the “Au Naturale” and it was created using the ECRU New York products: Rejuvenating Moisture Mist, Silk Nectar Serum, and Sunlight Styling Spray. “Once I saw the models that were going to be in the show, I knew that I wanted to embrace their natural hair texture. BENCH Body casted a lot of models with the best curls that you’ve ever seen in your life! ” said Cooper. The stylists sprayed the models’ hair with Rejuvenating Moisture Mist to hydrate and eliminate frizz from curls and waves. They then dried the hair from underneath with a diffuser to form curls and waves. The curls were then defined with a Conair Infinity Pro curling wand. Next, the models had Silk Nectar Serum applied generously to the hair for illusion of wet hair. Finally Sunlight Spray was used to keep the style’s shape. “The ECRU New York products worked perfectly for enhancing the models’ texture.” says Cooper

There’s a cool, detangling tool designed specifically for curly girls. Remington has introduced an electric, vibrating brush called Tame the Mane. Whether you have loose waves, ringlets, or natural kinks and coils, this brush is designed to make your life a hell of a lot easier.
The cordless brush is battery operated, so it travels very easily. After a workout or on a hot day were you’re hair isn’t behaving, you can break out your Tame the Mane to make your curls behave. And you can’t go wrong with it’s affordable $19.97 price tag.
Tame the Mane can be used on wet or dry hair, but in my personal experience, wet hair is way more prone to breakage. Usually, when detangling, it’s the smartest to start at the tips and work your way up to the roots; but that technique isn’t necessary with this magical brush. You can just let it run through your hair from the root down to the tips, the vibrating teeth do most of the detangling work for you. I know the thought of your hair getting tangled in this spinning contraption is probably at the forefront of your mind, but it actually glides through the hair easily – those folks at Remington sure know what they’re doing.
As a kinky-curly girl, I know that detangling and washing hair can be about as fun as getting a root canal. What always seemed to make this already unpleasant task even more unbearable for me was shampoo. Yes, shampoo is the devil! I would spend so much time detangling my hair before washing, for shampoo to just re-tangle my hair – causing me to have to detangle my hair once again (it was an uphill battle). Wet hair is weaker, so my second romp with a wide toothed comb always led to unwanted hair loss. I talked to some of my natural haired sisters, and they put me on to CoWashing, which is the use of cleansing conditioner to wash hair – thus, eliminating the need for my nemesis. It changed my life!!! Nixing shampoo was amazing, especially since I could lather up my hair with as much CoWash as I wanted, without having to fight the battle of the knots. I’ve been shampoo- free for about two years, and here are some of my favorite CoWashes:
