Zendaya’s hair has always been, quite understandably, as hotly debated as her chart-busting music. Be it locs, braids or short chops, she owns each of these looks with her signature sass, and never shies away from taking the occasional risk with her mane. If you’re looking to replicate her youthful, feminine and very stylish vibe, check out our quick tutorial below.
1. Establish A Curl Routine
Zendaya’s voluminous curls at the 2014 American Music Awards are all the encouragement you need to wear your natural hair with pride. The secret to keeping your curls as shiny and frizz-free as Zendaya’s is to maintain a (relatively strict) curl maintenance routine. To get curls like Zendaya, detangle your wet curls with a wide-tooth comb. Next, apply a good quality product such as TCB Herbal Hair Pomade to add definition to your curls, while also soothing your scalp. Dry your hair out with a microfiber cloth, which creates less friction as compared to other towels leading to less breakage and frizz.
2. Experiment With Weaves And Extensions

Hair extensions and weaves allow you to experiment with multiple looks and colours, without exposing your natural hair to too many chemicals or too much heat. At the iHeartRadio Music Awards in 2015, Zendaya rocked a voluminous look with wavy extensions that ran all the way down her back. Before clipping on the extensions or sewing on weaves, make sure the hair underneath is moisturised and nourished. A good strategy is to moisturise your hair the night before, with TCB Naturals Leave-In Treatment.
3. Take The Occasional Risk

Zendaya is one of the few celebrities willing to wear a mullet to a red carpet and still make heads turn. Her look at the 2016 Grammys is an excellent style for relaxed hair provided you choose a good quality relaxer, such as TCB Naturals No Base Crème Relaxer.
To know how to make your relaxed hair pop like Zendaya’s, it has to be relaxed the right way. Ask yourself, Is Your Stylist Relaxing Your Hair Correctly?
