Taraji P. Henson: ‘My haircare line is for everyone’

Taraji P. Henson

Taraji P. Henson is thrilled her line, TPH by Taraji, is suitable for use on all hair types.

The Empire actress launched her debut beauty brand earlier this year, with the 18-piece collection featuring products that cover the basics of cleansing and conditioning, as well as scalp-care formulas for textured, afro, and curly tresses.

However, Taraji insisted that her haircare line can be used by all people, as after being on the receiving end of racial discrimination throughout her life, she doesn't want to isolate any ethnicities.

"I don’t want people to think that this is a line that is just targeted at natural hair," the 49-year-old told Allure magazine. "This line is also for wigs. It’s for installs, braids, locs, straight hair, curly hair – hair needs moisture.

"Anything I do, even if it’s with movies, I don’t want it to just be a black movie, or the black this or that. Yes, I’m a black woman, and I’m always going to stick up for us first because we get left behind, but I want this to be all-inclusive. Why not?"

Elsewhere in the interview, Taraji opened up on her skincare routine and divulged that she's been using the same moisturiser for more than two decades.

"The drugstore doesn’t sell the moisturising cream I’ve been using for 20 years. It’s called Paul Scerri pH Balancing Cream. It’s from Switzerland," she shared.

Taraji also swears by using gel eye masks and has become "obsessed" with the Peter Thomas Roth Hydra-Gel Eye Patches.

"My make-up artist tells me I can’t use those eye patches every day. I’m like, 'What do you mean? It’s part of my routine!' I just love the way they make my eyes feel," the star stated.
