How to get actress Yara Shahidi’s perfect, pillow-soft curls

Actress Yara Shahidi’s bouncy, defined curls are something to behold, and we know her secret: the évolis® Professional PROMOTE Treatment Mask. After the 20-year-old Blackish star tried the richly hydrating hair mask, she took to Instagram to share a video of herself dancing and vibing her glossy, luscious curls.

“Dance when you love your curls,” commented Shahidi’s go-to hairstylist Kendall Dorsey who had primed and quaffed the Hollywood star’s hair for the video.



Dorsey, a seasoned expert when it comes to styling and caring for natural hair textures, introduced the évolis® Professional treatment to Shahidi’s routine, using an unexpected trick to maximise the formulas results.

Dorsey applied the mask to Shahidi’s freshly washed hair and left it on for 48 hours before rinsing out. “[That’s how] we achieved pillow soft curls,” he explained on Instagram.



And you can get these superstar results too! The évolis® PROMOTE Treatment Mask is like a big drink of water for hair. Containing nature’s moisture miracle Baobab, the intensely hydrating treatment instantly conditions hair for improved manageability. Not just an effective mask for curls, a blend of premium, natural ingredients transforms the quality of all hair types to reduce split ends and prevent future breakage.

As Dorsey discovered, there is more than one way to use the évolis® Professional PROMOTE Treatment Mask depending on your lifestyle and desired results. For an instant hit of nourishment, apply to dry, dirty hair 20 minutes before your shower, then shampoo and condition as usual. 

For an ultra-shiny, fresh-from-the-salon finish, apply to stands before bed then rinse or shampoo out in the morning. And you don’t need to worry about ruining your favourite pillowcase, the formula dries down, so it won’t transfer to your bedding. A genius solution for frizz and flyaways, curly or dry hair types can apply a pea-sized amount as a leave-in treatment to tame, style and define.
