Oprah's Longtime Hair Guru, Andre Walker, Tells All
Q: How did you find the wig?
A: It wasn't easy! I finally decided I'd have to make one myself. Two days later I was on the set of The Voice, talking to the stylist there, Kim Kimble [she's also Beyonce's mane woman]. When I told her about my predicament, she said she had created a wig I could borrow. Saved me a good bit of time!
Q: What's Oprah's favorite hairstyle?
A: Lately she's really having fun with more natural looks. She has very little relaxer in her hair now, so we've been exploring her natural texture, twisting or braiding and then setting it free! I've been using my new product line, the Gold System, on her because it's formulated for kinky and curly hair.
Q: What does she do when she wants to look polished in a hurry?
A: A ponytail or an easy hairpiece. And some Andre Walker Hair Q-Oil!
Q: What would Oprah never do, hairwise?
A: She'd never go too long without washing her hair. Women with dry hair sometimes think less washing is better. But water is moisture, and products like shampoos and conditioners rich in oils and nutrients add moisture. Dry hair needs big drinks.
