"My hair is always a mission, but I recently found this comb called Knot Genie," Linette Torres, a certified bra fitter and Alicia Keys doppelgänger, told us recently. "It's actually for children with curly hair. It's just plastic bristles and doesn't look like it works, but I tested it out and it works amazingly! It makes my hair so shiny."
To further enhance her healthy curls, Torres makes her own flaxseed hair gel. "It's a recipe I found on Urban Bush Babes. It's a blog by two women from Brooklyn who have textured, natural hair, curls and a lot of volume -- they talk about brands to use, what not to use and suggest DIY products, as well. This gel is all-natural and doesn't make your hair hard at all."
