Anyone who follows Kehlani on Instagram knows that her beauty choices and experiences as an artist are intertwined. So, it only made sense that we got the sweet, sexy and savage details behind her ever-changing mane.

As it turns out, the 21 year old is au naturale with her day to day routine, using ingredients like tea tree oil, aloe and jojoba oil on her hair and skin.  "I think it's really important to know what kind of skin you have," she shared with us. "Don't just take skin advice from anyone."

SHOW TRANSCRIPT

[MUSIC] I haven't been extremely comfortable in my skin until 2017. And it took me going through a crazy, wild experience that kind of stripped me of all my confidence. And I cut all my hair off, kind of disappeared off the face of Earth for a few months and just got myself together. But cutting my hair was probably one of the greatest things I could have ever done, because it just felt like I put all my negative energy into my hair and then let go of it, was able to like grow with my hair, so that's what I'm doing now. [MUSIC] What I love about my hair the most is that I can really just do anything I want with it. My hair's actually very short, and I'm wearing a wig right now. But, that's just proof of like, what I love about it. I can just throw a wig on if I If I feel like it. I'm a mixed race child, so my hair could kinda go any which direction. But my mom, she's like, whatever you wanna do. I cut my hair off in the eighth grade and got a cool mohawk. I feel like there's really no difference between who I am as a person in general and Who my artist self is, so of course my look and my music would kind of just be fluid together. My sweetest hair moment I think is definitely my little finger wave from the Distraction video with my natural hair. I think my sexiest hair is probably the little red bob It makes me feel very grown. Grown sexy, yeah. I guess a savage hair moment would just be badass. This is pretty kick **** to me. I think my biggest piece of beauty advice would be do whatever you feel beautiful in. Not everyone wants to wear 10,000 pounds of makeup, and not everyone wants to not wear makeup at all. And don't bash anyone else for whatever choice they make in the beauty direction. If someone wants to cut all their eyebrows off, and dye them which is pink. Let them. If someone wants to be completely natural, let them. It's all awesome and it makes them feel great. So you should feel great about them feeling great and that's it. [MUSIC]
