Hype Hair: Tell us about what projects you are currently working on. 
Desiree Ross: Right now, I am just working on Greenleaf. We start filming season three in January. Other than that, I’m going to be working on a short film in November. Hopefully more will come—I just started auditioning for projects again.

HH: How do you stay motivated in your career and your day-to-day life?
DR: I just picture where I want to be and remind myself why I love what I do. That encourages me to push further and do my best. You just have to manifest your goals.

HH: Is your hair relaxed or natural?
DR: Right now, it is relaxed with a Brazilian, which I discovered I like so much more than keratin—but it’s wearing off. Time to get it redone!

HH: What’s your hair regimen like?
DR: I like to shampoo every other morning because my roots get really oily, then I put in a good conditioner and let it sit for five minutes. I typically use Fekkai Brilliant Glossing Shampoo and Conditioner. I use a leave-in conditioning mask on my ends two or three times a week and either sleep with it in or let it sit for at least an hour before I wash it out. Then, before I blow-dry, I use Kerastase Elixir Ultime oil, Bumble and bumble Repair Blow Dry cream and It’s A 10 leave-in conditioner.
