Sophisticated Loc Salon stylist Shaquora Bey created flawless coils at the Shea Moisture booth. “To get this look it’s important to use the right products,” said Bey. “You don’t want to use products that have wax in it or alcohol that could dry out your hair or create build up.” Bey used the Shea Moisture Laydown Lacquer, to slay this look.
