We may have more in common with celebrities than you think. They breathe like us, they scroll through Instagram like us, and they even straighten their hair like us. At least that’s what Missy Elliot made us believe. Over the weekend, the rapper posted a video to Instagram where she’s seen straightening her hair with Guy’s I Like booming in the background. We have the same GRWM routine, except our playlist consist of Missy, Mary J. Blige, Pharrell, H.E.R., Teyana Taylor and a host of other artists who will be performing at this year’s Essence Festival.
What makes us feel even closer to the entertainer is the fact that her strands get frizzy just like ours do. The remedy? Typically, we flatiron our hair and Missy does too.
In the brief clip, the Essence Festival headliner runs a flatiron through her hair to smoothen out the frizz. “It’s Da Freaking Weekend somebody come flat iron my hair I don’t even know if I’m doing it right it keeps getting frizzy,” she captioned the post. Can you relate? Us too. At times it seems like no matter what we do, our hair insists on fashioning itself into a poof. Luckily, we can prevent this from happening with the right products and tools.
