Jessica Biel and Natalie Portman

Using your natural hair texture

It’s the end of summer, it’s still freakin’ hot out and your hair is probably already pretty fried from weekends by the pool. So give it a break and make like celebs Natalie Portman and Jessica Biel by working with your natural hair texture.

Skip heat styling and just embrace what you’ve got. If it’s straight then apply some smoothing balm to knock out frizz and leave it at that. If it’s wavy use a salt spray to up the beachiness and let it air-dry. If it’s curly apply a curl cream to your hair in sections and walk out the door. The end result is a natural-looking hairstyle that’s perfect for the final days of the season.
