“Galentine’s Day” is all about self-love, so it makes sense that a good option for this day is to embrace your natural hair texture. If you’re comfortable with letting out your natural coils, curls and waves, we say go for it!

Keep your natural hair on point with a good styling product. The Shea Moisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie will keep your curls and coils defined, soft and bouncy all day. It’s formulated with coconut, neem oil and silk protein, so you know it’s a winner!

Feeling more playful and flirty this Galentine’s Day? This feminine look would not only be a great option for you, it’s also perfect for those who don’t have naturally curly hair. You can achieve this look with a curling wand or a knot-out, depending on your natural hair texture.


Sleek, single braid

Inspired by one of the most iconic women in the music industry, this single braid is a hot option. Embrace your inner Sadé and rock this super sleek hair with the confidence of a queen.

This hairstyle needs to be sleek and structured in order to look its best. We recommend using a strong hold gel to keep the top sleek, like the VO5 Sculpted Mega Hold Styling Gel. If you have really smooth hair, scoop some gel onto your fingers and run it through the lengths of your hair before creating the plait. This will give it much-needed grip that will keep it structured throughout the day.
