Next in the chair, Bath’s front row powerhouse and Bath and England Prop Forward, Beno Obano. Beno has coily hair, which he styles in tight braids on match days and when training. A style that started as a lockdown look has since stayed, but Beno confesses it takes a lot of maintaining for which he enlists the help of his mother.
Putting the hair into braids can introduce unwanted stress and tension to the hair, hairline, and scalp. This can increase its risk of damage and cause the hair to become more prone to breakage. Curly and coily hair can be more delicate, meaning it’s important to treat it with care. Larry explains the importance of allowing the hair to relax during periods between braiding, together with choosing a tool that does not exceed high temperatures.
When styling Beno, Larry opts for the Dyson SupersonicTM hair dryer with Wide Tooth Comb attachment to shape and lengthen the curl pattern and enhance the hair’s natural texture as it dries. The attachment has robust teeth engineered with curved tips for comfort on the scalp and a seamless glide through the hair.
