Curly hair is here for a good time and a long time. Overtime, mainstream media has had tendencies to give curls a negative connotation and straight hair has typically been associated with a more acceptable way to rock your locks. Curls can range from loose to tight afro-textures. Regardless of the perception of the “lack” of beauty in curly hair, these celebrities have shared their curls on different platforms in the spotlight.
After giving birth in the early month of June to twins Sir Carter and Rumi, Beyoncé has been showing off her divine curves and curls via Instagram and her website. With the use of photos and videos Beyoncé’s latest insta-posts are serving major curl envy in different angles. The mother of three knows her way around a curly mane. Throughout her years in the industry Beyoncé has flaunted curls on the red carpet, music videos, movies, and even on her tours.
Along side Beyoncé, Solange’s glowing and down to earth personality is as captivating as her hair. The Grammy award winning artist is full of statements whether it is shown in her music, her artistic style or the strands on her head. Like her sister, Solo celebrates her curls on stage as well as Instagram.

Curling irons and flexi rods are universal for all hair types. It’s important to keep in mind that curly hair needs moisture and oils such as olive, coconut and Moroccan help lock it in.
For natural hair girls the best way to maintain your curls are by using products that suit your hair best. Shea Moisture’s hibiscus hair pudding and As I am’s curl jelly are products that are known to work wonders. Curls.Co’s passion fruit edge control curl cream and curlsmith conditioning oil-in-cream are also among the list of products to use.
To sustain loose curls, it is essential to brush your hair in the shower. Marc Anthony’s Strictly Curls Mousse or cream corresponds to 3B hair. If you have inherently straight hair using a one-inch curling iron for approximately five seconds and curling away from your face will provide you with textured curls and waves.
