Backstage at the annual Victoria's Secret Fashion Show, models are curled, oiled, and tszujed by the top industry pros. And while in years past the hairstyle has been all about long, flowing waves, recently VS has embraced natural and curly hair types on the catwalk. This year there will be several models walking with their unique texture on display, but what we really wanted to know: What products do these curly girls use when there's no professional nearby. After talking to three Angels, it turns out their off-duty hair routines are just as fascinating as — and more complex than — the hair styling on set. It's no secret that natural hair is delicate and requires special time and care (some Refinery29 editors fork up lots of cash and hours keeping their curls in tact), and this year's class of curly VS models can relate. Before the Angels grace the legendary stage, we got the complete breakdown of everything they to do their curls when the lights and cameras go off. Check out their natural hair routines ahead.

I wash my hair twice with the cleanser, rinse it out, and apply the conditioner. Then, I split my hair into small sections and detangle with my fingers. I usually leave the conditioner on for 5-10 minutes before rinsing." Cantu Sulfate-Free Cleansing Cream Shampoo, $4.97, available at WalmartCantu Hydrating Cream Conditioner, $4.97, available at Walmart"This was recommended to me by a hairstylist friend, and I love it. I apply a little bit of the product on wet hair, and run through my curls with my fingers again. To help the product absorb and create definition, I gently scrunch my hair with a towel. Then I let it air-dry for better results, or use a hair dryer if I am in a rush." Living Proof Restore Repair Leave-In, $30, available at Ulta Beauty"This treatment is my favorite — hands down. I apply a good amount of it on my wet, clean hair until it is completely covered by the product, and I always make sure to comb my hair before it starts to dry. Once my strands are completely dry my hair feels rock hard, but it's completely normal. Then, I rinse the product out, and use the Aphogee Balancing Moisturizer. My curls are always super defined and couldn't look more beautiful after." ApHogee Two Step Protein Treatment , $24.99, available at Sally BeautyIesha Hodges Instagram: @ieshahodgesofficial"I shave my head every five days using 1/8 inch and 1/4 inch guards. When your hair is short, it grows back quickly, so to keep new growth to a minimum, I have to shave frequently." Andis Easy Style Clipper 13pc Kit, $39.99, available at Sally Beauty"Once my hair is shaved, I mix bleach with 30-volume developer to achieve my platinum blonde color. I usually leave this on for 45 minutes to an hour." L'Oreal Professional 30 Volume Creme Developer, $3.39, available at Sally Beauty"A good shampoo and conditioner is super important, especially when you bleach your hair as much as I do. I love the Moroccanoil conditioner, it makes my hair super soft." Moroccanoil Moisture Repair Shampoo & Conditioner Combo Set , $44.99, available at Walmart"I use Olaplex every single time I bleach my hair — I cannot go one week without it. If I don't, my hair is super fragile and can break off. This repairs my bonds and keeps my bleached hair healthy." Olaplex Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3, $28, available at SephoraCheyenne Maya Carty Instagram: @chey_maya"I keep my routine pretty minimal. I don't usually shampoo my hair unless it's really dirty. Most of the time I use co-washes like this one from SheaMoisture." SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Co-Wash Conditioning Cleanser , $11.99, available at Target"I always apply a cream-based conditioner or definer to my hair while it's still wet — I feel like I get better definition that way. In the warmer months, I let my curls air-dry. But when it's cold out, I use a blowdryer on the cool setting, but I prefer minimal heat for best results."
