Who would have guessed that the award-winning actress would have another passion other than starring in movies? Taraji not only takes her acting career seriously, she also has a keen interest in hair.

From her personal experience with neglecting the scalp beneath the hair, Taraji saw the need to find a solution and decided to experiment on ways to ensure her scalp stays healthy.

She took to her kitchen and tried to create hair products, which she then tried on herself and her friends. From the feedback she got, she realized she was on to something and decided to share her newfound formula with the world.

It took the actress over ten years to create her line, but now she is done launching it. She described herself as a mad scientist. She said:

'I Was like a Mad Scientist."

Her hair products were tested on several hair types, and it yielded great results. Those who tried it had nothing but great things to say about it.

Taraji's hair and edges have been admired by many, and so when she decided to launch her hairline, most were excited. She took to her Instagram to post a video announcing that her hairline was coming out soon.

She said when they took the weave out, her hair smelled like mildew, and she felt embarrassed.

Many believe that if the actress weren't already involved in acting, she would probably be doing hair. Celebrity stylist Tim Wallace has also testified to how much Taraji cares about hair. He said in between takes and scenes; the actress will always apply oil to her edges.

Taraji admitted to Allure that she has always loved and understood hair and has always taken it seriously. She said while she was a kid, she visited the salon a lot to change her hairstyles. She said:

"I always loved and understood hair. Growing up, we took [it] very seriously. I was always in a salon every week, getting a different hairstyle."

She had been wearing weaves for years, and one challenge she always faced was how she could get through the weave to her scalp to enable her clean it. This inspired her to create a scalp care product.

Her hairline has a total of 18 pieces, which is categorized by colors. They include teal for cleansing and care, red for repair, purple for treatment stylers, and yellow for scalp-care products.
