being natural comes with a set of built in doppelgängers from angela davis to the sexy, “whole lotta woman”, foxy brown. it’s a good thing that these women are straight up bad ass because we don’t mind being told we look like (even if we don’t) foxy brown. it’s really the hair – the foxy brown afro – that people see and when done right it’s straight up curlzploitation.
nik killed this foxy brown hairstyle and hit it dead on with her foxy brown/pam grier look. we love her youtube channel and confess we watch it for her jovial personality as much as her natural hair tutorials (be sure to subscribe to her channel). she makes getting this style look so easy and that’s because it is.
with a fresh head of co-washed and detangled hair you’ll make sure that your curls are tight and shrunken so that your style comes out as close to pam grier’s as possible. because curly styles like this can cause dry hair after a few days of wear, we like washing with a cleansing conditioner to start with moisturized hair. our go to is Hair Rules Daily Cleansing Cream. a suds-free shampoo, it is specially formulated for dry, coarse, over-processed, color-treated and heat-styled hair but is also suitable for all hair textures. it contains panthenol, honey, lemongrass, hops and abyssinica seed oil to leave your hair feeling like butter. we are also fans of Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk Co-Wash Cleansing Conditioner because it’s made with agave nectar to ensure intense hydration, plus pro-vitamin b5 to strengthen while shea butter detangles and conditions from root to tip. a leave-in like Carol’s Daughter Hair Milk Lite Leave-in Moisturizer works great because it’s light and will leave your curls bouncy which means foxy hair – we can’t imagine foxy hair with no bounce. if you have fine hair, you’ll wan to use a light gel to help keep your hair from frizzing. a good option is TRESemme Flawless Curls, Bouncy Curls Defining Gel which holds crunch-less and leaves your hair full of body.
once you’ve prepped your hair, the tools you’ll need will simply be some hair clips to divide your hair and medium sized perm rods and of course a little patience. the end results are worth wearing a pair of high waisted pants and a button down at least one day just so you can chanel your inner foxy.
