Step one Prep hair using Mizani True Textures Curl Balance Colour-Safe Sulphate-Free Shampoo. Follow with Mizani True Textures Curl Replenish Intense Moisturizing Masque.
Step two Work in a small amount of Mizani True Textures Moisture Stretch Curl Extending Cream before combing through to loosen out any tight, kinky curls.
Step three Once dry, braid along the hairline to create a canerow moving away from the face.
Step four Finally, use an Afro comb to lift locks in an upwards direction to create a full-bodied style

Plaid, tartan, check

Plaid, tartan, check - call it whatever you may, but it's a print that always manages to trend every autumn/winter. With that in mind, a pair of jeans in the ever popular print can't be a bad thing, can it?
