Just ask Empire star Serayah, who stunned in cornrows that elegantly wrapped around her head at the Essence Black Women in Music event.
"When my hair is natural, it's curly and big. It's a lot to care for. Plus, there's a lot of pressure when the lights come on to look a certain way. It's easy to overwork your hair," she said. "The braids free me from all of that. I can wake up in the morning and go. I can work out without having to worry about my hair."
To maintain her braids, the singer-slash-actress relies on coconut oil.
"Before we go to sleep, we put coconut oil in our hair. Then, we put on bonnets and a silk wrap to lay down our edges," said Chloe Bailey, half of the sister duo Chloe X Halle.
The talented two, who are signed to Beyoncé's music label, have made a serious case for hair locs, consistently wearing fun, intricate new styles. When asked about the secret to healthy hair, Chloe responded, "My sister and I love coconut oil. It keeps our edges healthy and our hair full."
