Avocado hair mask
“Overripe avocados are perfect. You mash them up with a little olive oil, and let the mixture sit on your hair for 30 minutes. It makes me hungry, so I usually end up rinsing it out too soon.”
 
White vinegar for shine
 “Once a month I rinse my hair with white vinegar and warm water to restore the pH balance to my strands.”
 
Homemade Sun-In
“I did this as a girl when I was living in the Dominican Republic. You soak hair with rum, then go out in the sun.”
 
For red highlights
“Apply a mix of equal parts beet juice and lemon juice to your hair, then sit in the sun. You get stunning reddish highlights.”
 
Olive oil for the ends
“Put your hair in a ponytail and blot a bit of olive oil on the ends. Your hair just sucks in all that moisture.”

A fixture on the red carpet, Zoe Saldana is stylish and sexy, smart and successful—a woman of strength and substance both onscreen and in real life
 
Best known as a kick-ass action hero on intergalactic missions in the Avatar, Guardians of the Galaxy and Star Trek franchises, Zoe Saldana is not only an internationally acclaimed actress with a nearly 20-year career, but also a capable multitasker. Along with sisters Mariel and Cisely, she runs Cinestar Pictures, a production company (watch for The Honor List later this year). She is also preparing to launch a digital media brand and has become an outspoken supporter of the Time’s Up campaign to end sexual harassment. And above all, she is a loving wife and mother to three little boys who are being raised on a gluten- and dairy-free diet.
 
Aside from starring in I Kill Giants [release date: March 23], what else is new in your busy life?
 Something pretty big! I’m stretching my wings and throwing myself into the world of entrepreneurship. I’m starting a [digital media] company called BESE, a platform that is going to shine light on the untold stories and faces of today’s America. We are going to start with the Latinx community, because it is the most marginalized according to size and growth. Our goal is to give a voice to underrepresented, marginalized communities, and to provide inspiration by highlighting role models past and present. Building BESE is my biggest passion right now, aside from my family and film career.
 
Despite the exhaustion, do you like being a mother?
 Oh God, it’s the best role I will ever play in my life. I love being a mother. I love my children. I love my family. I’m in love with my husband and everyday I wake up trying to be a better person for them. I’m raising boys, so I have a huge responsibility on my shoulders to raise honorable and decent men. That is our main goal now.
 
What is it like running a production company with your sisters?
 Since we were little girls, we always knew we wanted to be working together, living nearby and in each other’s lives consistently. I think we’ve managed to build a relationship that has a foundation of respect, admiration and positive criticism, and also focuses on pushing each other. We are super inspired every day and the stories that inspire one inspire the others. Currently, we have taken a little hiatus and are focusing more on family. We finished our first-look deals and we are expanding in the digital world for women and for film. That presents a certain kind of freedom; we don’t have to be stuck on a policy or a specific budget that is unrealistic. We can make a lot with a very small budget and tell the stories that we want. We executive produced The Honor List, and co-produced it with Lionsgate Digital Studios and Untitled. This is the first film that we did and we are super excited about it.
 
Have you ever had any #MeToo experiences?
 I would be lying if I said that I am not part of the “Me too” movement. You can’t be a woman at my age and stature, and say “I’ve not been a victim of some kind of sexual misconduct.” The way I’ve handled it… I have leaned in to it. I have spoken to other women, especially my mother. I’ve spoken to female peers. I’ve spoken to male peers about situations that I’ve found myself in, [some that] happened before and I didn’t have the strength to speak up [back] then. I’ve been given tools on how I can handle myself better next time. And also, I have spoken up. Whenever I was cornered in a way that felt like I was going to be coerced into doing something that I did not want to do, or I was beginning to feel dirty or pressured, I have stalled. I’ve said “Halt!” And I have told those perpetrators to stop immediately and to step away. I’ve also told friends that I love very dearly when they have gotten drunk around me and been inappropriate. The next day, they [received] really heavy text messages from my end where my heart was broken, but I was conveying how they made me feel and how I would like them to never, ever, ever do that to me again. I think I have been weak at times because I didn’t know what to do and was trying to be nice, but I’ve also been that strong woman and said “Do not trespass me, or I will hurt you.”

If there's ever a time and place to peacock, it's at the 2016 Met Gala—just ask Zoe Saldana. The fashion forward movie star is known for taking risks on the red carpet, and Monday's Costume Institute Gala was no exception. In keeping with the evening's theme, Manus x Machina: Fashion in an Age of Technology, Saldana 37, modeled a feathered Dolce & Gabbana dress that featured a dramatic train. The Italian fashion label also designed the actress' clutch and jewelry.
 
Christian Louboutin heels completed her bold look. Saldana opted to enhance her natural glow by wearing Charlotte Tilbury makeup, which complemented the whimsical nature of her gown. Saldana looked and felt like her best self, and her husband agreed. At one point, Marco Perego even leaned in for a kiss—and photographers just so happened to capture the tender moment.

How to Maintain Flawless Hair Extensions
   
Treat them the way you would your real hair
Treat them the way you would your real hair. “Naturally textured virgin hair extensions should be treated and cared for the same way you’d treat your own natural hair. Regularly washing, moisturizing and detangling your textured hair extensions is key to extending the life of the hair,” advises Opara.
 
Dry your hair well
Dry your hair well. Hair that hasn’t been dried properly can lead to scalp issues, including fungal ones. So if you have thick hair, be sure to clip your hair in sections and dry your braided sections thoroughly.
 
Don’t neglect your real hair
Don’t neglect your real hair. “Hair that hasn’t been maintained under a weave may begin to suffer from breakage or matting when the extensions are removed,” warns Pitters.
 
Remove them in a timely fashion
Remove them in a timely fashion. Extensions will damage your hair if left in too long. Pitters recommends redoing interlock sew-ins every 6 weeks and the braided sew-in version every 8 to 10 weeks.
 
Avoid oils
Don’t neglect your real hair. “Hair that hasn’t been maintained under a weave may begin to suffer from breakage or matting when the extensions are removed,” warns Pitters.
 
Take a break now and then
Don’t neglect your real hair. “Hair that hasn’t been maintained under a weave may begin to suffer from breakage or matting when the extensions are removed,” warns Pitters.

Zoe Saldana on Putting Rum in Her Hair  
   
They say you should never meet your heroes. So when you're in the business of meeting famous people, it’s helpful not to have any. By the time I arrive at the Four Seasons in Beverly Hills to interview actress Zoe Saldana about her beauty routine, I’ve already conditioned myself to feel fairly lackadaisical about the whole thing. No matter how beautiful and fit the action star looks on-screen in movies like Avatar and Guardians of the Galaxy, I tell myself there has to be some flaw that the camera just never picked up—a laugh line, maybe, or a tendency to slouch. Celebrities are only human, after all.  
 
But the real-life Saldana tells a different story—one that throws my cool composure. The 38-year-old’s skin bears not the faintest whisper of a blemish; her svelte frame, currently swathed in a canary-yellow jumpsuit, reflects the years of ballet training she received growing up. I’m not proud to say that I spend the entire first minute of our conversation hunting for signs that she’s as normal and flawed as I’ve convinced myself she must be. I don’t find any, which would normally be infuriating. But with Saldana, it’s not. Because here’s the thing: The actress and mother of three is also kind—as in, kinder than you’d expect of someone so famous. In a suite full of publicists and stylists, she’s the only one to ask if I’d like some water before our interview. I decline, so distracted by her unforeseen elegance that the sensation of thirst doesn’t even register. We take a seat on a paisley couch, and she crosses her legs with the grace of a swan.
 
Soon I learn there’s more to Saldana than the ageless skin we see on-screen (and in real life, as it turns out). Having split her childhood between the Dominican Republic and New York City, the actress’s unique beauty identity was molded by more than the American standards that shaped so many of her contemporaries. Even the reason I’m interviewing her today is unconventional—instead of pairing up with a makeup or skincare brand, Saldana is at the Four Seasons doing press for her partnership with Japanese airline, All Nippon Airways. Down to her brand deals, a thirst for the exotic is built into Saldana’s DNA.
 
Zoe Saldana: “Growing up in the Dominican Republic, I learned to be very organic with my beauty routine. Cooking products are not just for cooking; you can actually use them for beauty, for wellness. If you live in the islands, you get a coconut, and you use every part of that coconut. You drink the water, you make food with the meat, you can squeeze it and make coconut milk, and that milk you can put on your skin, on your hair. And then you can make coconut oil and coconut butter. I grew up using the environment to its full potential. And that just made me feel really, what’s the word, grounded. Because I was using everything around me in so many different ways, not just conventionally.
 
“In the islands, rum isn’t only for drinking. You can actually put rum on your hair. If you put it on your ends, you get sort of an ombré thing. Because with the sun, the rum bleaches your hair. That was sort of a natural way of getting highlights. I also grew up loving incense, and I still do today. It’s not just burning candles: We burn oils. We bring flowers into the house because we like natural fragrances, scents that come from real life—vanilla, roses. That’s what comes to mind when I think of beauty in the islands.
