Instead of styling with gel as expected, Lauren prefers Carol's Daughter Black Vanilla Moisture and Shine Hair Smoothie ($10). "For me, I'd rather use something that's moisturizing for my hair to keep it in place, rather than gel or too much hairspray. I want to use as little hairspray as possible," she said.
She finger-combs the hair smoothie from roots to ends and takes extra care on the sides, where she has a lot of baby hairs.
