Lenny Kravitz has awesome curly hair and an awesome hair attitude. Mr. Kravitz shows us how he uses the Shakeout method with Aloe Vera for his afro mane. To be the best, you have to learn from the best!
Lenny Kravitz has always been one of my curly inspirational dudes. When I was sporting my medium curls in an afro, I always kept an eye on how Mr. Kravitz styled his ‘fro so as to gauge how my ‘fro was doing.
The man himself is turning 48 years old very soon (born May 26, 1964) and yesterday I twitted a photo of him showing how in shape he is. Lenny Kravitz has the hair, the body, the talent and the awesome personality too. An overall cool cat and very much the kind of guy I like to portray here at Manly Curls to give us some awesome mane inspiration. I am going to take a wild guess and say that Lenny Kravitz would be very much up for being in our Curly Hair Men Talk series but would probably be too busy, so for the time being, I will bring you some of his cool tricks to keep his awesome afro. Of course, keep an eye on the Curly Hair Men Talk section because very soon, a fellow Manly Curls fan who is a top notch guy and who can easily rival Troy Polamalu (and me) with his mane will be portrayed, and he is just as cool as Lenny too!
Back to Lenny Kravitz. Aloe Vera is a great natural substance for our manes. I have tried it and I always go back to it at one time or another during my curly hair adventures. I am lucky to have access to the best sources of Aloe Vera as I come from a place which has the best climate and earth to grow the stuff so, suffice to say, I have applied the highest quality goo on my hair many times and with success.
For now, however, I am bringing you Lenny Kravitz’s Shakeout video in which he shows us how he applies Aloe Vera in the Shakeout method (pour it so it soaks your curls, then shake if off). His afro looks in excellent shape, as usual, so this video goes to show that behind all his talent and looks, lays the right attitude to approaching his curly mane. Bravo, Mr. Kravitz!
All the best.
