It's been two days since Teyana Taylor's sexy "Fade" appearance and my snatched edges are still missing. The singer/actress is undoubtedly the breakout star of the VMAs and now, all eyes are on the unofficial queen of body goals. Although I'm in complete awe of her fit physique (hello abs!), Teyana also finnessed a gorgeous hair moment worth mentioning.
In my opinion, her wet and wavy bob is what really brought the video's sexy aesthetic full circle. It looks put together, but effortless. In short: it's what I wish my hair looked like after a sweaty gym sesh. I need answers, Sway!
Like a good millennial, I've been stalking Teyana's Instagram page, hoping to discover how she pulled off this look. Instead, I found something even better. As it turns out, the mother of one is a huge advocate for one of our favorite hair brands--Mane Choice!
When your mom was 30 minutes late for her hair appointment and you let her slide on the late fees at "Junies bump & curl" salon because it was her birthday🎉🎁🎂🎈 😂😂😂😂😂...S/B: @courtneyadeleye can you please send my mom her own @themanechoice Deep Strengthening Mask Treatment, so she doesn't use up all of mine 😳😩 #Yesidohairtoo #Jackofalltrades #YesWewomenKeepOurREALhairHealthyTooEvenUnderOurWeaves #healthyhair #naturalhair #AlwaysDeepConditionBeforeand AfterYourInstall #teampurplebottle #thewholefamilyisteampurplebottle #themanechoice #TheManeChoiceInSALLY
Teyana--whose hair repertoire covers a wide spectrum of styles--has utlized several MC products and appears to genuinely love each one:

Seriously, she let us in on her secret almost three years ago and we completely missed it:
Ok Ladies so since you've ALL been asking & i love my lady supporters heres my secret to keeping my hair healthy, long & thick!!!! 😁😁 In my line of work I often change my hair styles, even when i wanna add of couple of extensions from my hairline #TaylordtexturesByMyExtensionz (ComingSoonFeb2014) 😁😁💆💁 to my hair from time to time when i wanna feel like Diana Ross. 😍😍🙈💃 HOWEVER it is also STILL important to take care of my hair & protect it weather i wear it out & natural or weaved.

The best part is you don't have to be a naturalista to appreciate these products. Like Teyana says, "Even with my weaves, the hair care must continue."
