Valentina and Candice

As you know, on Thursday 14th August I went to the Balistiq #LOUDER launch party with Simone. I had the pleasure of meeting Simone’s good friend Valentina and her cousin Candice, who were more than happy to have an impromptu photoshoot at the location in Brick lane, E1. Check out their natural hair bio’s below.

Name: Valentina

Spotted in: Brick Lane, E1

Been natural for… ‘all my life. I’ve only ever straightened my hair once or twice because it never remains straight and I just prefer being natural.’

Favourite Hair Products: ‘I’ve tried Mixed Roots and Nazuri thanks to Simone, and I also tried Aussie products, however I didn’t feel it gave me the moisture I needed. What I am using at the moment is Palmers hair balm which I rub together in my hands then smooth from root to tip. It really helps keep my hair defined. On day three, I use loreal styling mousse to add a bit of texture to my hair, but I never use gel as my hair is fine.’

Style Inspiration: Jessica Alba and Jennifer Lopez

Name: Candice

Spotted in: Brick Lane, E1

Been natural for… ‘all my life, but in the last 5 months I’ve promised not to use heat. It was really hard guys, I was addicted!’

Why did you decide to stop using heat? ‘I missed my curls and wanted them back.’

Favourite Hair Products: ‘[To Valentina] Aussie works really well for me, actually! I use Aussie hair serum, Twisted Sista Curl Activator and Pink hair cream.’

Style Inspiration: Anne Marie (from Rudimental) and Rihanna
