This is one of Oprah Winfrey's most classic hairstyles of 2010! She is still spreading her wings and soaring into 2011 with her new television network!
In order to achieve this style, you would need to have you or your stylist to treat the hair with a protein reconstructor followed by a moisturizing conditioner to reinforce the hair for heat styling. Rinse thoroughly. Then add leave-in conditioner for thermal protection. Some of the most popular ones include "It's a 10," and Joico Leave-in Detangler. If you need slip in the hair, then add either Pureology Supersmooth Elixir or Alterna Bamboo Smooth Oil. Carefully, with the Bamboo oil if you have thin and fine hair. Distribute leave-in conditioners with a wide tooth comb, then blow-dry. In order to get this flip/wing styling, a fresh haircut is needed along with a 2 inch flat iron. Also, please do not forget your carbon comb for creating the waterfall movement in the front fringe area. A non-sticky styling spray and shine serum should be distributed through the hair prior to flat ironing in order to hold the flips; yet, it should maintain the body and movement.
I am going to assume that Oprah gets haircolor, relaxer, and heat styling. Double processed (color plus relaxer) hair requires regular conditioning treatments. "Not just a deep conditioner." Many times people say deep conditioner, and it means that they added heat. Cheap conditioner with or without heat is still a cheap conditioner. A treatment should say "treatment" on the tube or jar and typically may cost you an extra $15 to $25 if added to the salon service. If you color your hair once a month or use a lot of heat, then you need a treatment once a week. Talk to your stylist about brands like Schwarzkopf and Redken. These brands have treatments that work with all hair types, and the jars/bottles may retail for between $25 and $90 for home use.
I wish continued Congratulations to Oprah Winfrey and the launching of her new television network channel OWN! I love the OWN logo colors: purple, green, and coral/orange. It reminds me of a rainbow. Diversity and prosperity.
