Even Lizzo Hasn’t Always Loved Her Hair

And what’s a beauty rule you think is BS? 

I’ve had a lot of fun experimenting with short hair. I was always told, “You’re a big girl, so you have to have big hair to look slimmer.” And I’m like, well, what if I don’t care about looking slimmer? So, that’s one of those rules that’s BS to me. That is some bullshit. I’m going to wear short hair, and I’ve had a lot of fun with pixie cuts.

Fill in the blank. I love my hair…

I love my hair the more I put love into it.

What’s a way you show your hair love?

Man, I show my hair love by leaving it the fuck alone. I’m one of those girls that will fidget with her hair. If I get bored or if I’m sad or depressed, I’ll bleach my hair or cut my hair off. I’ll change it all the time. The best thing I learned about her on my head is to leave her alone, give her a break, give her a vacation.

If you could only use three beauty products for the rest of your life, what are they and why?

I’m going to go with my every days. I would say I need an oil. I have a collection of premium oils that I put on my body every single day, but I’m going to choose one out of all of them to make you happy. There’s a shop in Leimert Park in L.A., and they make these oils and body creams from scratch with Shea butter, and there’s a coconut body oil that I would use every day. 

And then rosewater on my face and my body—I put rosewater everywhere, if you know what I’m saying. And castor oil for my hair; I need something for up there. Just something to help the growth.

What’s your favorite way to take a moment for yourself?

I’ve recently discovered the joy of sitting and doing nothing. I’m always having to do something, ever since I was a kid. Always working, working, working, or playing, playing, playing. I’ve recently just sat and done nothing and realized, oh, this is nice. So I think quieting my mind, meditation, and doing nothing.

Meditation is hard. I started off by just listening to frequencies or chill music or nature—I love nature, rainstorms, and the ocean. And then I kind of fell off of meditation real bad, and I haven’t been able to sit still for nothing. So I got the Headspace app, which is a really cool app for beginners, to get back into meditation again.
