What are some of your favorite hair care tips for active women?

I recently came out with my memoir earlier this year called, “Against All Odds: From the Projects to the Penthouse” and towards the end of the book, I have a few chapters on how to achieve and maintain healthy hair.

Hair Care tips from CURLS Founder and CEO Mahisha Dellinger

Tame the curls:

Curly hair is the most temperamental textured tress on this planet. Frizz from touching the hair too often, limp noodle curls from over conditioning, dry, straw-like curls from under conditioning or over shampooing, and seasonal changes that make us wonder, “What on God’s green earth has happened to my beautiful curls?” are all common curly girl experiences.

You can help your hair with these rehab tips:

Tip 1: Strip, but don’t tease! Start with a clean palate every three months, especially you product junkies that just can’t seem to say “no” to any product that is curl related. Try a “CURLS Detox” cleansing as a part of your rehab. Choose a clarifying shampoo that is ph balanced and contains mild surfactants to avoid over drying the hair.

Tip 2: Product Relativity – While some curlies like to “cocktail” two or more products together to create the perfect coil, I advise against mixing styling products from different product lines. Oftentimes, active ingredients will collide and cause the white ball effect or harden up on the hair. Try one product line at a time.

Tip 3: Defrizz & Debunk! Debunk the myth that the more products applied on the hair the better the curls. The truth is, the number one cause of frizz is product overload. Simplify your styling regime.

Tip 4: Use sulfate free cleansers to ease dry, brittle hair and ends. Sulfates are harsh detergents that cause the suds factor in your cleanser and results in dry hair.

Tip 5: Stop heat styling altogether. The excess heat further exacerbates the problem.

Tip 6: Deep treat your hair with a super hydrating, natural based deep conditioner. Add heat so that the conditioner actually penetrates the hair shaft. The portable microhaircap is ideal for conditioning on the go! This cordless design enables user to walk around during treatment.

Tip 7: Moisturize daily…remember, this is key to healthy hair!

Tip 8: Add a natural oil of your choice (e.g. pomegranate seed, olive, jojoba, or sunflower oil) to your styling products for extra moisture. You can purchase natural oils at your local health food store.

Tip 9: Be patient with slow growing hair. Realize that all hair grows, on average, ½ “ per month. African American hair grows at the same rate.

Tip 10: Take a multi vitamin full of rich minerals and drink eight glasses of water a day.

Will "WillDaBeast" Adams

He’s elevated dance. His style is highly sought-after. You’ve probably seen a viral video already showcasing his ridiculous choreography. Will “WilldaBeast” Adams is our Fall 2017 cover and we are excited to share the story of such a dope guy with you all! He’s leaving a mark on the industry that will make it tough for others to make any better.

Growing up as a military brat was difficult for Adams. Moving around often, and not feeling a sense of belonging left him questioning his purpose, as he knew he was meant for more. Once he found his love for dance, he took a leap of faith, trusted his talent, and moved to Los Angeles, to become a professional dancer to artists such as Usher, T-Pain, The Black Eyed Peas, working with TV series such as GLEE, X-Factor and more. He’d later go on to build his dance empire immaBEAST that has global impact. His annual conference BuildaBeast Experience 2017 going on now, is hosting over 1000 participants daily, representing countries all over the world.

The energy Adams’ choreography brings is so infectious, you may find yourself watching his YouTube channel for hours, or deciding to try some of his choreography yourself – be careful though – we’re not responsible for any pulled muscles or sore joints that may come from trying to move like that! The fitness level he showcases is one to be admired!

Dance as a career, or outlet, certainly has its long-term benefits. But even dance as a form of cardiovascular exercise, or stress-reliever, can improve our overall physical and mental health. Scientific studies show that dancing helps improve our core, overall coordination, fight symptoms of depression, and can even keep our brains from aging!

Adams’ chatted with us about how he stays in great shape, what sets him apart, and what empowers him to be a beast!

Willdabeast Adams

What was life like for you growing up?

Life was confusing for me growing up. I moved around a lot of places, because I was a military brat. I lived in Virginia, Florida and Indiana for 12 years. I learned to love all people, try new things and was super involved with sports, as well as arts. But I always felt out of place and that I was destined for something more.
