Hollywood actress Kimberly Elise’s iconic roles have sealed her reputation as a powerful on screen presence and relatable leading lady, whether she was making a gun-toting, bank-robbing, against-the-odds shot at escaping the ‘hood in Set It Off, believing in love again after an abusive relationship in Diary of a Man Black Woman, or fighting for her sick child as the wife of Denzel Washington’s title character in John Q.
And when it comes to the hair game, the Beloved actress has been a leading lady of natural hair representation. Before there were Instagram hashtags and Youtube gurus, she was one of the first hip hop generation/Generation X actresses to wear her natural tresses on screen as well as on the red carpet.
Let’s Talk Hair was delighted to spot Kimberly Elise at the Afrolicious Hair Expo in Los Angeles, where she was promoting Alchemy 27 hair and scalp elixir , a featured product in her Kimberly Elise product line – “clean beauty for African American women, formulated without sulfates, parabens, silicones or drying alcohols.”
The one of a kind oil, with therapeutic properties and an intoxicating, herbal fragrance, is available with her entire line at Kimberly Elise Naturals, kimberlyelisenaturals.com.
