Teyonah Parris is the New Face of Dark and Lovely
Actress Teyonah Parris is the new face of Dark and Lovely’s Au Naturale line of hair care products. The Survivor’s Remorse star made the announcement via her Instagram page earlier today, posting the following caption “So hype to finally be able to share that I’m the newest member of the @DarkandLovely family. Stay tuned for more natural hair love from us.
Teyonah, whose been natural for almost five years now, says her “aha hair moment” came while walking down the street with a friend in Harlem. According to Teyonah, she saw a beautiful girl wearing a twist out and commented on how she wished her hair could do that. Teyonah says her friend told her she could have hair like that too if she just wet it. Having worn relaxers all her life, Teyonah knew water was not her hair’s friend. Teyonah said it was at the moment she realized she’s been relaxing away all the kinks and curls that gave her hair the body she truly desired.
Fans who want to meet Teyonah and learn more about her hair care routine and new venture with Dark and Lovely, will get the chance when the actress attends this year’s Essence Music Festival as the company’s Brand Ambassador.
