Today's #MCM (Mane Crush Monday)...
Corinne Bailey Rae is back with new music. And new hair!
Actually it's the same hair as before just even greater than I remember it. Her new song 'Been to the Moon' is equally as vivacious. You can watch the video below.
I’ve been a fan of this lovely lady since 'Like A Star' which I’ve just realised was released over a decade ago. In that time her hair has been as consistent as her sound. Always in some sort of twist out, always healthy and lush. The difference compared to 10 years ago is the length. If anyone could be an ambassador for growing afro hair long it’s this sweet song bird. Just look at how much it’s grown in a decade...
In 2011 she spoke to one of my favourite hair blogs, Curly Nikki, about her hair story. You can read the full interview about her hair regime, favourite products, mane inspirations and more here.
Corinne Bailey Rae’s hair how-to for her staple style:
- Wash it
- Condition it
- Detangle it with a big paddle brush which takes 40 minutes. I do it from the ends to the roots and then I put it in 4 or so plaits.
- I plait the front section and then one in the crown and two at the sides.
- Leave that for a day or a day and a half
- When I take them down it’s in those loose kinks from the plaits but it’s still a bit wet so my natural curl kind of comes back in a but and it’s a combination between those kind of kinks and my normal curls.
