Zendaya, Dreadlocks, Barbie And Cultural Pride Celebrated In Ethnic Hairstyles
Mattel partnered with Zendaya to create the custom Zendaya Barbie in the entertainer’s likeness to recognize the star for “standing up for her culture.” After being criticized for her dreadlocks by Juliana Rancic at the Oscars this year, the doll was presented to Zendaya this week.
Janell Stephens, Founder and Master Mixtress of Camille Rose Naturals, a vegan collection of hair and skin products, applauds Zendaya and Mattel for recognizing the courage to stand up against uninformed personal criticism. “Zendaya looked stunning at the Oscars and her hairstyle is linked to our beautiful heritage which needs no defense,” according to Stephens.
Hairstyles with multiple twists require specialized hair products. Camille Rose Almond Jai Butter is a botanical blend of oils and butters with almond oil and honey that help manage course or thick hair, leaving it held in place, soft and moisturized while nourishing the scalp and stimulating growth.
