Taraji P. Henson is a famous Hollywood Actress. You probably remember her from Hidden Figures as the brilliant mathematician. She is excellent in her craft but if you follow Henson on Instagram then you know her red carpet looks are amazing. She has often claimed to be a hair chameleon. She has tried different hairstyles and hair colours more than any other fashionista. She told WhoWhatWear in an interview, “When I moved to Hollywood, I had to start wearing weaves because Hollywood hadn’t embraced Black women’s natural hair yet. But you just don’t put a weave in your hair and say, ‘That’s it.’ Sometimes, a weave is way more work than natural because you’re washing two different hairs. You’re washing the weave hair, and you have to get down underneath all of that and tend to your own scalp and hair.” Taraji Henson has recently launched her own haircare line called TPH by Taraji. The formulas for the products have been created by Taraji herself.
Beauty Tips from Taraji P. Henson that I learned-
1. Scalpcare is very important
Henson puts a lot of effort into scalp care. Her brand TPH has come out with various products that are specifically for the scalp. She told WhoWhatwear “TPH by Taraji is literally based on a healthy scalp. I was in the kitchen; I created that! Baby, nothing goes in a jar or on the shelf until it goes through this Virgo’s roots.”
2. Moisturizing your hair is vital
Henson told WhoWhatWear, “I love healthy hair. I’ve always been about healthy hair and scalp since I was little. Henson always emphasis on making sure your hair has enough moisture.
3. Try DIY Beauty Treatments
Even Hollywood’s biggest actress experiment with at-home beauty treatments. With all of us being quarantined for over a year, at-home beauty treatments have become very popular. Henson says, “Call me crazy, but I like to do passion twists on myself. I do—I really enjoy it. It’s therapeutic. I have my music, I pour a little wine, and I take my time.” Henson has claimed to have learned a lot of Beauty treatments from Youtube. She is an amazing and inspiring queen.
4. Aging feels different for different people
Ageing is a process that looks different for different people. Henson has been vocal about how ageing has changed her hair. She told WhoWhatWear that her hair was getting thicker with age. Many people lose their hair with age but Henson feels blessed that in her family, women’s hair gets thicker as they age.
5. DIY Hair Colours
Taraji P. Henson has never seemed afraid to change her hair colour. She is all about at-home dye jobs. She told in an interview, “Since I’ve been natural, I can play in color. You know how many times I took my hair out playing in color because I had a perm in my hair? Who knew I just had to grow the perm out. The damaging process, or where you can go wrong, is bleaching your hair. I can do my own. I wouldn’t do anybody else’s since I’m not a technician, but if I were someone else, I would just say go get your hair professionally lifted.” Henson disclosed in an interview that her go-to home hair dye is the semipermanent product from Adore. She said it fades away in a few washes. You can definitely play with a lot of colours if you use good quality semi-permanent home hair dyes.
