Let’s face it, Rihanna has cool hair. She experiments with different colors, styles, cuts, weaves…you name it. Even though it may not be your goal to change your hair styles as frequently as Rihanna, there are still a few tips you can use if you want to make your hair look more like hers. First of all, you will have to be a risk taker in order to do what Rihanna does. Whether it’s hair, makeup, or fashion, you will have to take risks, be bold, and most of all be confident.
This guide will give you some tips on what you will need for your Rihanna-like hair. It’s up to you to decide which styles you want, but this guide will help you get some ideas, and get what you need for your “hair toolkit”. Now let’s get started on how to make your hair look like Rihanna’s!
Color. Rihanna experiments with lots of bold colors. Think bright red, bleach blond, and blacker than black. But if you aren’t ready to commit to a head full of color, you can always try the ombre look (coloring the bottom half of your hair) or you can try streaks and highlights. Try Splat Hair Color in Luscious Raspberries and Redken Color Extend Shampoo & Conditioner.
Relax. To rock Rihanna’s sleekest hair, you may need to wear extensions or relax your own hair. Just like with color treatments, you have to be careful with relaxers because both color and relaxers can dry out your hair. Even though there are at-home relaxer kits, it may be safest to get it professionally done. Not only will it look great, but any other hair/scalp concerns that you may have can be addressed by your stylist. However, if you choose to use the at home kit, always use a neutralizing shampoo on your relaxed hair. Some women use a neutralizing shampoo right after they get the relaxer, but they don’t continue to use it for every wash. But as long as you are relaxing your hair, you will need to use a neutralizing shampoo. Use the neutralizing shampoo that is made by the same brand as your relaxer.
Shine Spray/Serum. To make your straight hair look even sleeker, you will want to add some shine to it. Shine sprays, serums, and hair oils can do the trick. Trim the ends of your hair evenly, then apply Avon Advance Techniques Dry Ends Serum. Then spray on John Frieda Frizz Ease Glossing Mist.
Deep Conditioner. This is totally necessary if you have chemically treated hair. The more chemicals you use, the deeper you have to condition. Chemicals can dry and weaken your hair, so you must condition as much possible to keep it strong and looking healthy. Try Moroccanoil Intense Hydrating Mask.
Daily Moisturizer. No matter what you do to your hair, you will always want to moisturize it whether it’s chemical treated, heat treated, or chemical free. If your hair is dry or brittle, you may need to moisturize it twice a day. Try a light moisturizer like Luster’s Pink Oil Moisturizer or L’oreal Paris Power Moisture Rush Masque.
There you have it. An outline of the things you will need for your hair if you decide to go wild like Riri. Hopefully this guide helped.
