When we think of Love Island 2021 we look back at it fondly.

It was the year Kaz Kamwi and Liberty Poole became BFFs, fans saw Toby Aromolaran 'moving mad' in the villa and Millie Court and Liam Reardon won the show (although they've since split).

We recently caught up with Kaz to speak all things hair and it turns out she's released a textured edit with Easilocks - a brand that actually caters to afro hair.

Speaking about how the collab came about, she explained, "I used to use Easilocks extensions but I used to use the straight extensions and I’d just curl them myself, but when the team spoke about coming out with a textured collection I was like, 'Immediately yes, sign me up.'

"I already really loved the products and the quality anyway."

The Love Island 2021 star went on to add that the range works for natural or relaxed hair too.

“My hair is fully relaxed but my sisters hair is fully natural - not relaxed at all - and when they use the extension it's still perfect."

Not only is Kaz a fan of the hair but she's also happy about how accessible the extensions are, "I live in Essex and even today I can’t go into my local town and find the extensions that would suit my hair.

"So this was really important to me as well, the fact that people can have these delivered next day it make such a big difference and it delivers worldwide."

And while she's the face of the textured range, it turns out Kaz actually uses the different styles too.

Kaz on the headband wig

"I definitely grab my headband, it’s sick and tired of me. Honestly, I take it everywhere. I change my hair quite a lot. Even at the minute my hair is in cornrows but when I'm running to Tesco to do some errands or if I have a quick meeting in London, I always have that headband on my head.

"Everyone thinks I've just walked out and put a headscarf around it. I’m like, ‘You have no idea. It took me three minutes to do my hair’. All I had to do was clip it in and brush the back and I’m good to go - it’s my absolute go-to."

Kaz on ponytail extensions

"I really like an up-do so with the ponytail I wear it day and night because it’s so versatile. My favourite thing ever is to put my natural hair in a bun, put in the ponytail and it looks like it took me 40 minutes to get ready when I really took 15."

Kaz on clip in extensions

"With the clip ins, I play around with a half up half down hairstyle. What I tend to do is leave my natural hair out at the front in the U-part shape and then I use GHD curling tongs that are really thin. So I mimic the texture - I curl my hair at the front and then it literally just blends in. It's great.”
