Hype Chat: Celebrity Hairstylist Karim Odoms Explains How to Maintain Healthy Hair and Spring Trends

Karim Odoms and Tia MowryHH: We LOVE Tia Mowry’s short cut, but she’s recently been rocking hair extensions on the red carpet. 

KO: Thank you! Actually those are not extensions, they are custom lace units made by Kim Kimble that you see her wearing. We cut the front hair line out and used her own hair line for a more natural look, as if the hair is growing out of her scalp.

HH: It looks really great! Which weave brands do you swear by?

KO: I love Kim Kimble units and I swear by Indique extensions. Great quality hair that gets better as time goes on. Holds great curls, waves – they can stand the heat and also the process of coloring.

HH: What specific products do you use to maintain Tia’s short style and natural curl pattern?

KO: Davines Love Curl Enhancing shampoo and conditioner is used to maintain and strengthen the curl pattern and growth process. Also, coconut oil treatments help as well.

HH: Obviously, you have a great relationship with Tia when it comes to her hair. What styles or hair colors are you two currently thinking of trying out for spring? If any…

KO: Right now Tia’s main focus and goal is to continue growing out her hair and rocking her natural jeug’e. However, we always thinking of cool, beautiful colors and haircuts to play with for the red carpet and her characters. I can’t give away too much, so you’ll just have to stay tuned.
