You can't fault Chaka Khan for a lack of consistency.
Early on in her career -- in the days of Rufus -- she figured out her most bodacious assets. Bold, red lips, an ubercurvy physique, a big, golden voice and ooooh all of that hair.
Chaka has been rocking some oversize hair since the days of 'Tell Me Something Good.'
In 1978, Chaka went solo with a bang -- releasing the timeless hit 'I'm Every Woman.'
And please note that this everywoman still has that big, beautiful natural-textured hair!
The Eighties were already all about big OTT hair, but Chaka took it to new volume. In this era, Chaka started experimenting with color. Who can forget that glorious red she dyed her mane with in the I Feel For You era?
Even to this day, Chaka has remained true to that hue - her hair is often a deep red or burgundy shade, and whether she wears it straight or curly, her hair is always large and in charge.
To get that Chaka Khan look yourself, you need two things -- moisture, and volume! When your hair is the central focus of your look, you need to give it extra moisture and deep conditioning to keep it looking as shiny and luxurious as possible. I must say, Mizani's True Textures Curl Replenish Intense Moisturizing Mask made my locks feel like butter! I definitely recommend weekly use for anyone seeking more moisturized, multi textured hair. For volume, you might want to use a thickening product like Ojon's Hydrating Thickening Spray, or a hair diffuser like the DevaFuser.
