Hallelujah! Thank you to the great @vernonfrancois for always gilding my crown of hair, always empowering and transforming my kinks and curls, and to @Allure_magazine for this refreshing feature. https://t.co/Ms5oljT2GU pic.twitter.com/gCtuKdKWHF— Lupita Nyong'o (@Lupita_Nyongo) February 12, 2018
“Lupita and I wanted to show that coil-y or kinky hair has many strengths and can be worn in lots of different ways, celebrating its beauty and versatility. Loving your true texture is important.”
"One thing I’ve learned was the acronym LOC, and that’s basically the rule for how to treat my hair: liquid, oil, and then cream. It’s the idea that you wet your hair first, then you add oil so that it can trap the moisture in, then you put a moisturizer or a cream over it. Shea butter, natural shea butter — no perfumes, no bleaches — which doesn’t smell great at all, but it does wonders to my hair."
