Hair experts say be kind to kinky
For ages, you’ve disciplined your hair with straighteners, relaxers, rebonders. It’s time to let those ringlets bounce free. Four hair experts put their heads together on twisted tresses.
Ay’sha Riazuddin, Bollywood star stylist
Chop: Layers reduce bulk which weighs down curls.
Hue: Placement’s essential. For global, choose glossy plums. Avoid blonde.
Goop: L’Oreal’s Serie Expert range.
Godwin D’Cruz, Lara N Lee Salon
Chop: Trust a stylist who loves curly hair.
Hue: Chunky highlights.
Goop: L’Oreal Shine Curl shampoo+conditioner, Curl Memory Down Cream for definition, Keune Phyto Protein Spray post-shower, L’Oreal Play Ball Beach Cream for a messy look.
Savio Pereira, Magic Salon
Chop: Disconnected haircuts, round/long layers or natural inversion.
Hue: Block colouring, or on ends or distinct waves.
Goop: For styling, mousse, moisture-kick spray, Magic serum, curling balm and product-maximising diffuser. Any good brand will do.
Chetan Rao, Hue and Me
Chop: Layers lend texture, distribute volume, make curls visible.
Hue: Highlights, not global.
