The E! hit reality series WAGS, (an acronym Wives And Girlfriends of Professional Athletes) is set to return later this month and one of the stars is Sasha Gates, the wife to five-time All Pro San Diego Chargers tight end Antonio Gates.
The Trinidadian wife and mother of two is far from just a housewife as she has a flourishing music career and a lucrative hair extension line, Dolling Extensions which led to the Dolling Foundation which provides high quality wigs to women surviving hair loss from disastrous illness.
This reality TV star stays busy but carved out some time to discuss her natural hair care routine.
The naturally curly beauty shared some of her favorite hair care products which included using Emu oil for her hairline that had thinned since having children, and using Rusk Hairspray and Aveda Anti-Humectant Pomade. She’s also a fan of sleeping on a satin pillowcase, and making sure to use low heat when going straight and she believes in scalp massages and weekly deep conditioning treatments using Pureology Hydrate.
Sasha is all about rocking her hair naturally curly but when she’s up for styling she opts for extensions to decrease the chances of damaging her strands with too much heat and find wigs and extensions a viable option for variety. She also wants women to feel beautiful.
In a recent interview, she says about her extension line and the foundation, “We hope to inspire women and enhance their natural beauty that was compromised by tragedy. If I can help put a smile on a woman’s face during a dark time, then my mission is complete. So yes, I love wigs and extensions!”
WAGS, the second season is set to air on June 26th.
