Cardi B shows off natural hair texture and shares her easy hair mask recipe

Cardi B delighted her followers with an Instagram story featuring a hair mask recipe. The “Bodak Yellow” rapper posted a tutorial using the natural ingredients she puts on her and her daughter Kulture’s hair. Cardi said in the Instagram Story that the mask hydrates, enhances curl patterns and improves hair growth. 

“All the good things you put in your body, you’ve got to put in your hair,” she said in the video. 

The hair mask requires eight simple ingredients: avocado, black castor oil, olive oil, mayonnaise, eggs, honey, argan oil and banana. Cardi used a blender to mix the ingredients and then she coated her and Kulture’s hair in the mixture and let it sink in before washing it out.

The 27-year-old also took the opportunity to show off her naturally long, afro-textured hair. She shared moments of her life where she was proud of her natural locks, including the time she got signed to her record label and sported a fro.

Cardi later posted the results of the mask in a photo where the Grammy winner’s hair looks groomed, thick and shiny. In the caption, she gave her followers some advice: don’t listen to men who discourage wigs because “it helps with hair growth a lot.” 

The post received 4.9 million likes, but that’s unsurprising for the social media maven. 

“Yea, Imma do that hair mask sooooon,” one Instagram user wrote.

“Gorgeous,” one person said

“Yesss for the healthy hair,” one person added
