Ethiopian model Liya Kebede makes the latest addition to my Hair Mavens archive.

Not only has she graced the covers of  American Vogue, but she’s also been the face of Italian, Japanese, Spanish, French and Korean Vogue mags.  The native of Addis Ababa kicked her modeling career off in the city of Paris and later relocated to NYC (where she now resides). In 2003, Kebede also became the first woman of color to be the face of  Esteé Lauder.

Some products she lives by??

She told Allure (in Sept. 2007):

Kerastase Bain Satin Shampoo and Nutridefense Conditioner – “I love to use this line throughout the fall and winter to keep my hair shiny and feeling soft.”

:: Take it from a model- who probably feels the pain of over processing/styling on a daily basis ::
