{Video} Tracee Ellis Ross Shares How She Gets Her Curls to Pop #LegendaryStyle

Have you ever had someone that you have always wanted to meet? I have a list and Tracee Ellis Ross was on it. Tracee has been my girlfriend in my head since she starred on Girlfriends (Joan). I believe we all loved that show, her style and of course her hair.

AMLA 1Saturday, May 9th at the Westside Cultural Arts Center, Tracee Ellis Ross & Johnny Wright hosted an AMLA Legendary Style Soiree to celebrate the newest innovations from the Optimum Salon Haircare AMLA Legend Rejuvenating Ritual. The product collection is infused with AMLA oil, an Indian oil used for centuries in India as a luxurious natural hair conditioner.

Before the crowds came in, I was invited to sit and talk about “Hair” with Tracee & Johnny. They explained how each product works on our hair and Tracee answers the question how does she get her curls to pop and how she uses the Rejuvenating Oil. (See Video)

Tracee loves the entire line but she was asked if she had to just pick two to share, she still chose three!

  • Rejuvenating Oil ($10.99)-An opulent concentrate that contains Amla Oil derived from an Indian superfruit renowned for its incredible conditioning properties
  • Billion Hair Potion ($9.99) – A formula with Amla Oil + Arginine + Strengthening Ceramide that intensely conditions and wraps the hair, to help promote Visibly Thicker, Fuller Hair.
  • Body Filler Hair Cream Conditioner ($7.29) An intense rinse-off treatment that melts into the hair for intense Conditioning + Detangling.  Intensely conditioned, and full of Body and bounce* your hair looks and feels Rejuvenated!


AMLA 2I loved the decor of the event. Everything was turquoise and white. There was an open bar and we were served crab cakes, shrimp and more. There was a display of all the products with sample of each one. We were able to run our fingers through them to actually see how it feels on our skin.

AMLA 4AMLA 5As you can see, Atlanta showed up and out for Ms. Tracee & Johnny! We love talking about our hair! I have never tried AMLA, but I am looking forward to trying the Shampoo, Conditioner and Rejuvenating Oil very soon. I will let you know how my hair feels too.
