We’re totally loving Zendaya‘s sexy curls! The Disney Channel star flaunted her sleek, healthy-looking natural curls on Instagram on Nov. 20, causing some serious hair envy on our end. Here, we show you how to embrace your natural texture to the max with expert tips from Hollywood’s top stylists.
To copy Zendaya’s gorgeous, natural look, Larry Sims — a celebrity hairstylist who’s worked with the the Shake It Up! star in the past — suggests focusing on your hairs natural texture and enhancing it, without using too much heat, which can damage hair and leave curls looking dry and brittle.
To protect your stands against heat damage, stylist Ricky Pennisi suggests using a sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner like the RI CI Splash and Drench, as many shampoos contain sodium lauryl sulfate, which can “strip the hair of its natural oils, leaving it dry and frizzy.” When it comes to drying your hair, Ricky also recommends that you avoid your hair dryer adding, “if you must blow dry or use a diffuser, set it to a medium setting. It might take a little longer, but it’s better for your hair.”

When it comes time for styling, Larry suggests you start by applying the got2b Mind Blowing Quick Shape Mousse on the ends only. Next, apply the Mind Blowing Xpress Dry Styling Spray from root to tip. “It protects hair against heat and dries fast,” he told HollywoodLife.com.
Finally, finish the look with the got2b Mind Blowing Fast Dry Hairspray. “It is important to touch your hair as little as possible while wet,” adds Ricky. “Over-manipulation of wet hair that’s curly or naturally wavy will lead to frizz. Once your hair is completely dry, feel free to manipulate your hair as you wish.”
