“There are little tricks that you can do with natural hair to prevent shrinkage,” Sturdivant-Drew says. “For this style [above], to get it big, all I did was take my Dyson Supersonic with the comb attachment and blew it on cold.

“I’m not heavy on products. I never have been, because I like the hair to move and have some bounce when you walk. If anything, I’ll put a little Oribe Superfine spray on to hold the hair.”
Kerry isn’t the only celebrity to go natural. Both Alicia Keys and Sanaa Lathan have done it as well. Whatever the magic is that’s happening, it’s working. Go ‘head Kerry!
