Solange Knowles's Natural Curls
For a style that requires no heat tools at all, wear your hair in its natural texture like Solange Knowles
. Incorporate a hydrating shampoo and deep conditioner like the Carol's Daughter Black Vanilla Hair Smoothie ($20; carolsdaughter.com
) into your routine to keep the summer elements from drying out your strands, and avoid putting your hair into styles that pull on it to keep breakage to a minimum. "Before I shampoo, I comb out my hair with a wide-tooth comb," Knowles told InStyle
. "The wider the teeth, the less strain and breakage you're going to have."
