Embrace Your Natural Texture

The Scoop: A revolution began when African American celebs like Solange Knowles (pictured) and Queen Latifah started to embrace their hair's natural texture. "It's great because most of the time we were straightening and relaxing hair so much that it wouldn't have any movement to it," Gibson recalls. "Now that we're not, it has more life and maintains wave and style." These A-listers are treating their locks to moisture enriched salon treatments and regularly using at-home products that take care of their hairs needs.

DIY: When you embrace your natural texture it's important to make sure your hair's getting enough protein-derived moisture. Don't shampoo as often and do weekly hair masks and use nourishing styling products.

You'll Need: Pantene Pro-V Relaxed & Natural for Women of Color Daily Oil Cream Moisturizer ($3.99 at Rite Aid) or Softsheen Carson Optimum Oil Therapy Dry Hair Healer ($3.99 at Walgreens)
