CELEBRITY BEAUTY SECRETS: How to Style Natural Hair From The CW’s Tanika Ray!By Delaina Dixon | October 11, 2012 | Entertainment, Food Fashion Style
TV DivaGal has admired Oh Sit! star Tanika Ray‘s (pictured far right) natural locks for years. So you know I had to ambush her at the CBS, CW & Showtime Summer TCA┬á party to get her hair care secrets and favorite products. And nobody says it better than Tanika herself!
“Everybody wants to talk about my hair, and I love that! I just can’t justify being in a hair salon for 25 hours once a week, every week. That seems like a lot of time when you can just embrace what God gave you and freak it to the best of your ability, whatever works for you.
“My secrets are: make sure you understand that the hair is queen! You will never outwit your hair. You have to let your hair tell you what it wants to be, and follow along. Just say, ‘Yes ma’am,’ and bow down to the gods of the hair.
“Make sure you find the right products that make your hair exactly what it wants to be, whether it’s braids, dredlocks or a ‘fro.
“I rotate between products. Right now I’m using Mixed Chicks. I use a little bit of Moroccanoil Treatment and Aveda Be Curly. I also rotate between Living Proof, which has a no frizz line, and a little bit of┬á┬áOuidad Moisture-Lock Leave-In Conditioner.”
