Taraji P. Henson Is Here To Steal All Our Coins With Her New Haircare Line

Whether you're rocking a twist-out or Meek Mill braids underneath your bundles, she's got you covered, boo.

Celebrity News

Taraji P. Henson has been snatching our edges on- and off-screen for nearly two decades, but recently, the 49-year-old actress launched a business that will help us protect them.

Earlier this week, Taraji released a collection of natural haircare products that will protect TF out of any hairstyle you decide to rock in 2020, and xoNecole has all the details. TPH, which features 18 unique products that cost less than $15, was handcrafted with the help of Taraji herself, and the product line promises to meet all of your coil-related needs.

According to Taraji, the beauty industry has always been one that she's aligned with and would have been part of her career path. In a recent interview with People, the Empire actress explained:

"I know that if I didn't go into acting, I would have been a cosmetologist."

There is no such thing as overprotective when it comes to Black-girl haircare, and Taraji wants you to know that whether you're rocking a twist-out or Meek Mill braids underneath your bundles, she's got you covered, boo. In the interview, Taraji reminded us that a protective style won't protect sh*t if you don't maintain a healthy haircare regimen, and TPH is here to help do exactly that.

"Women think that just because you have your hair braided up under a weave or wig that you don't have to [do anything else]. But you have to take care of it."

Because Taraji is also a member of the dry-strand struggle, she knows that it can be hard to maintain your coils while staying within your budget. That's exactly why she's created products that allow you to hydrate, clean, style, and repair your hair without sacrificing product. She explained:

"I created applicators that deliver the product to your scalp. It's not compromised on your fingertips or wasted on your hair."

In the interview, Taraji also broke down her own haircare routine:


"I keep my hair braided down most of the time because I'm working. Sweat builds up from the braids and the wigs, so [every time I take the braids out] I want to make sure my hair is in the best possible condition before I braid it back down again. So Sundays [are] like a spa day. I start with my scalp scrub, and sometimes I'll use my Master Cleanse, too, so my hair is squeaky clean. I follow that up with one of my shampoos and masks, then we braid it down with my Glow Up oil so that my hair doesn't feel brittle and deprived when I take it out."

Your October 2022 Horoscopes Are All About Finding Flow & Alignment

October is a month of balance. With some energy moving direct and some energy moving retrograde, there is a middle ground to find this month between what is unfolding and what you are letting go. The month begins with Mercury officially moving out of retrograde and going direct in Virgo. Mercury this month is cleaning house and sprucing things up after the somewhat tyrant energy it’s brought over the past few weeks. Now that Mercury is direct, there is less interruption when it comes to daily flow and plans, and this is a good month to start setting things into motion.

The Myth Of The Sex Drive & How Libido Changes From Your 20s, 30s, 40s & 50s

No one prepared me for how horny I would be in my late 30s. All the elders in my life prepared me for random chin hairs, weight gain, and menopause but no one said a mumbling word about my sex drive. Something happens the closer you get to forty. I went from wanting sex here and there to wanting it all the damn time. Is there a support group for this? I can’t be the only one who has the sex drive of the Energizer Bunny. Upon my research to figure out why I felt like a cat in heat, I discovered several theories surrounding women and our sex drives–including one that says the concept of having a sex drive is a myth altogether.

Black woman with an afro and tube top laughing

If you have been on social media for any significant amount of time this year you may have come across women saying that they are in their “villain era.” For these women, being a villain means embracing the negativity and judgment from others that comes when you say “no” to people, and living your life unapologetically. For them, being a villain means letting the chips fall where they may when you no longer allow other people’s ideas about you to restrict you from living the life that you want and deserve.
