Tracee Ellis Ross is praised for her charming personality, impeccable taste in fashion and her healthy head of luscious natural curls. Though she’s been a fashion and beauty darling since she graced our TV screens as the lovable “Joan” on “Girlfriends,” she’s been hesitant about using her fame to endorse products. That’s because Tracee “is not the type to put [her] name on any product [she] doesn’t believe in,” she told a room of industry insiders at a lunch introducing Optimum Salon Haircare’s latest offering.
But that all changed when she discovered Optimum Salon Haircare’s 6-in-1 Miracle Oil. Tracee uses the oil regularly both as a part of her wash-and-go method and to smooth her hair back in a ponytail “on Day 2,” she told the crowd, while applying the oil and scrunching it in her curls for definition. She has signed on as a spokesperson, appearing in hilarious promotional videos alongside celebrity hairstylist, Chuck Amos, and hosting a series of launch events with blogger Curly Nikki.
The product promises to live up to the hype. It blends six essential oils (argan, coconut, jojoba, apricot, sunflower and avocado) and boasts several uses. It can be used as a hot oil treatment, daily leave-in conditioner, moisturizer for any texture and frizz-controlling serum. Tracee even uses it as a body oil on her skin for a natural glow that’s far from greasy.
Optimum Salon Haircare 6-in-1 Miracle Oil retails for $9 and is available here.
