Taraji P. Henson’s new haircare line got a special boost from Halle Berry who promoted it in her recent shower selfie.
Halle Berry appeared to have just come out of the shower when she took her selfie which she shared with her 6.1 million Instagram followers. The actress’ face was still wet and her curly long hair damp sharing her message for “#SelfCareSaturday.”
It was a nod to her friend, Taraji P. Henson who recently launched her own haircare line called TPH by Taraji. Halle had just sampled the brand’s hair mask and she credited Taraji for it. She also lauded the “Empire” star for her success.
Halle and Taraji formed a friendship due to their former manager, Vincent Cirrincione. Both cut ties with him after he was accused by nine women of sexual misconduct in 2018.
“I’ve known this woman since she started in the industry, and it’s been such a joy to watch her flourish and succeed. Obsessed with this line,” she captioned her fresh-from-the-shower pic.
Further, she directed her fans to her IG stories where she promoted her other favorite products from the new haircare brand.Taraji responded by reposting Halle's selfie and thanking her for her support throughout her career.
She recalled Halle throwing her a party to celebrate her first Oscar nomination. She also thanked the "Monster's Ball" actress for introducing her to the biggest Hollywood stars.
"A true Queen lifts other women ALL THE WAY UP!!! I love you Halle for ever!!! Beautiful inside and out!!!," she wrote.
