Surprisingly, though, for such a stylish, well groomed chap, Labrinth is quite laid back with his routine.
In an interview a couple of years ago with GQ-Magazine.co.uk, he admitted to being an Organic Pharmacy fan, using a cleanser, face serum and moisturiser from the mid-range brand.
“I love their stuff and in our household we’re quite keen on using non-toxic and environmentally friendly products,” he told the online magazine.
And as for that magnificent mane of hair? Apparently he doesn’t do much, admitting he was “blessed by the Afro kings”.
“I wash and condition my hair once a week,” he continued, “I use Green People shampoo and conditioner and we add argan oil to our conditioner. I only ever towel dry.”
- For Labrinth’s dyed red Afro look ask your barber to use clippers to create a soft circular outline that’s slighly shorter at the back and around the ears.
- The top cut is usually done with freehand clippers and the shape can be softened with scissors.
- You’ll barber will neaten up edges and the back of the neck with clippers.
- Your Afro haircut will need regular maintenance – you’ll need a cut every 4 weeks to keep it looking sharp.
- As for the dyed red colour – the hair will need to be bleached, first, so that the hair is lighter and the red colour will stand out.
- This is something to definitely leave to the professionals.
- Discuss it with your hairstylist as they’ll check the condition and texture of your hair and recommend whether or not you should have it done.
- For Labrinth’s dyed red Afro look use a hair pick to comb hair upwards and outwards to maintain the shape of your natural Afro.
- Then smooth matte paste in hands and use it to create definition.
- Go steady as you want hair to have hold, but not look too ‘done’ or smooth.
- Wash your hair no more than once a week if possible, using a natural, nourishing shampoo.
- Always use a conditioner specially formulated for Afro hair, paying particular attention to the mid lengths and ends of the hair.
- Apply hair oil to the ends of the hair regularly to keep it nourished and hydrated.
- Sleep with a Durag around your hair to protect it at night.
