We had a ton of fun this week playing with some old-school looks that we love. Quick and easy, these simple styles have a retro edge that is sure to turn heads.
Styling products and hair masks get all the love, while shampoo tends to be left shivering on the shelf. The Doux drops science on the how & why of the proper shampoo regimine.
Her I share a few gems on heat styling fundamentals. As a professional, the most common questions I’m asked are “Why’s my hair so dry?” “What’s that swelling about?” or “ Why are my end’s frizzing?” and “Why do I still have heat damage, even though I pre-pooed/co-washed/coconut-oiled my hair first?” Many naturals assume that heat damage is attributed to the heat itself, but poor technique and bad habits are the real hair killers. Missing a few fundamental truths about basic hair SCIENCE can become huge source of frustration and disappointment. There’s a lot more ground to cover on this subject, but here I go over the Must-DOUX’s. Don’t Sweat what ya heard, act like ya know…
MOUSSE DEF + BONITA AFRO BALM explained: I put together a quick "info-torial" to help my Douxgirls gain clarity on a few of the functions of two of our rockstar stylers. Although both products have multiple uses and can be applied to any hair type, here I demonstrate how I doux me. Quick, simple, and fool-proof, you can check out how I pulled off this Mocha-Marilyn Monroe look here.
This year has been a BEAST, to say the least! We finally "dropped the mic" in Target isles just in time for the New Year! The Doux officially launches 5 of our super dope signature products beginning Christmas Eve and will be rolling out over next few days in select Target stores nationwide.

A Long Time Coming: Over the past 5 years, we've been honored to share our products with our clients at The Doux Salon, and our very supportive online community. It seems like only yesterday we were testing the line on hundreds of clients and using their feedback to develop products with the performance that they requested. We'd had opportunities in the past to bring The Doux to a larger market, but hesitated on more than one occasion, primarily because one, the market was so over-saturated, and two, we knew how different we were from what was already out there.The Doux has always been an authentic brand. Since inception, we've been big on being real with the public about the scientific truths of natural hair care and dispelling myths that swarm around the internet and social circles. A brand developed by a professional that actually encouraged style versatility and curly-to-straight options, at the time, was considered counter-culture to the "all natural" natural hair movement. How would we squeeze past everything else that's out there, and speak truthfully about our values over all the static? Needless to say, the challenge of supporting "Smart Chicks with Real Hair" who were beginning to explore more styling options like blowouts, braids, and wigs, gave us wobbly knees. We prayed and waited for the right timing.
When the opportunity to come to Target presented itself, we decided to take the leap. We've worked feverishly over the past several months, juggling this new conquest and our day-to-day salon business. We're so proud to bring something to the streets that we know you'll feel good about. We hope you love it as much as we doux!
