There are thousands of hair care products bumping one another on the shelves at your local Target, Sally’s, and Walmart. Each one promoting organic ingredients, amazing benefits, and hair outcomes. So what is a curly girl supposed to do?
Do you fill your cart up with everything you see? Of course not! Well unless you’re a recovering product junkie like me and enjoy playing the trial and error game with your tresses. But eventually, you have to give that up too. It isn’t fiscally responsible or beneficial to the overall outcomes of promoting healthy hair.
If the above situation sounds like a hair dilemma you’ve been in, don’t worry girl I’ve been there too. I’m actually still learning.
You see, when you know better, you DOUX better. It’s about time that we start educating ourselves on what we’re using on our hair and why we’re using it. At least that’s what I gathered after having a true heart to heart with the Co-Founder of The Doux. She asked me some core hair questions about my hair care regimen that I didn’t even have the answers to. It made me really wonder if the practices I’ve been implementing were really beneficial for my healthy hair lifestyle.
Allow me to introduce you to the flyest haircare line around, The Doux. No really, the packaging is DOPE! The old school era will take you back into the ’90s and make you reminisce on your “School Daze”. The Doux haircare line includes a range of products that are essential for your wash day to daily hair routines. Each product has a trendy name like Bonita Afro Balm which is a multi-purpose styling cream, and Swag Goo which is designed to keep your untamed edges in full control.
My favorite product, however, is the Mousse Def. The fact that it’s hard to find on the shelves speaks for itself. No lye. I literally had to get up at 7 am one morning to secure me a bottle at my local Walmart. It is a styling staple that I must have in my hair stash because it has a conditioning agent, defines my twist outs, and keeps my curls looking fresh to def. Hands down, this hair care line stands out amongst the crowds and that’s the unfiltered truth.I’ve tried The Doux cleansers, conditioners, and stylers which work well on my hair. That’s why I can wholeheartedly say that I love The Doux haircare line. No more bouncing between brands for me.
On the flip side, it wasn’t just the quality products that drew me into this brand. It actually was the team behind the brand that got my full attention. The Doux Gang is available to answer any question you may have about their products and services. Their willingness to help creates the ultimate customer care experience. Maya is constantly dropping gems on healthy hair care practices to any natural who is willing to listen. Their engagement with their customers set them apart from the rest.
For years, I thought I was doing right by my hair and I truly wasn’t. It wasn’t until I began studying the science behind hair and educating myself this year that I had a real awakening to understanding my strands.
MEETING MAYA IN REAL LIFE
Class is now in session.
With my pen in hand and my ears inclined to hear, I hung onto every word Maya said as we had a full-blown conversation about taking care of your natural hair.
GIRL, it’s not every day that you get an opportunity to talk curly to the Co-Founder of The Doux hair care line. To say my heart was elated would be an understatement.
I met Maya at the Harmon Face Values event they hosted in New York City. I got a chance to ask her about single strand knots, hair regimens, and of course their hair products. I wanted to be educated on the best way to care for my hair. Of course, Maya would know best because not only is she the owner of this remarkable hair care line but she is also a certified beautician. Yes, she knows the science behind growing healthy hair.
Maya so graciously let me express my concerns before dropping the 411 on hair care products and how to use them properly.
Maya informed me that, “Ingredients matter but the formulation reigns supreme. The way that those ingredients come together in the formula, what they do together; matters more than individual ingredients.”
These values that Maya holds to be true are reflected in her hair care line The Doux. She believes that performance comes first when it comes to creating quality hair products.
“The most important thing is how each product is formulated to perform on the hair. How you apply products really does determine about 85% of your results. When it comes to your hair you want to think about what you’re doing and why you’re doing it.” -Maya
SUCKA FREE HAIR BASICS
According to Maya, when it comes to your wash day routine you should cleanse, condition, treat, and style. We must learn to cater to our hair needs.
But how do I know what those needs are? I’m glad you asked.
Maya can explain this way better than I can. She has two decades worth of experience! Here are a few things you should know and do. Check out The Doux 4C Hair Series. Grab a pen and a journal so that you can take notes. Be ready to take your curly experience to the next level.
AT THE END OF THE DAY, DOUX YOU
I keep Maya’s YouTube videos on repeat because they have changed my perspective on natural hair care. I’ve also been reading books to study the science behind hair, so the next time I get asked a curly question I can answer with certainty.
It’s important that we’re knowledgable about our hair. I hope you give The Doux a try if you haven’t done so already.
