When the COVID-19 pandemic forced beauticians to temporarily shut their doors, many women were left to figure out how to care for their hair at home. That’s why Tonya Thompson and Sharie Wilson, founders of the DreamGirls Salon with locations in Los Angeles and Sacramento, chose to launch the DreamGirls Healthy Hair Care System™.
“We created our DreamGirls Healthy Hair Care System™ to give women across the globe access to salon-quality products so that they can actually see hair growth results while caring for their hair at home,” the entrepreneurial duo told MadameNoire. “We also wanted to break the stereotype of Black women not being able to have long, natural, healthy hair. Black women have been stereotyped as not having any hair or being bald which is why they are forced to wear a weave or wig, and we have debunked that myth through the hundreds of women who have grown their hair on our Healthy Hair Program™ and Healthy Hair Care System™.”

TLC Comb-Out Treatment
One of the hardest parts of retaining length is preventing hair from snagging and breaking during the detangling process.
“We recommend using our TLC Comb-Out Treatment to prevent breakage, excess shedding and hair loss when combing out your natural hair. The treatment is key to retaining growth and popular for those with curly or textured hair.”
Every healthy hair care regimen begins with a healthy scalp. Unfortunately, many of the shampoos that are marketed towards Black women are filled with harsh cleansing agents that deplete the hair of natural oils, leaving it feeling dry. The renewing shampoo is infused with tea tree oil, lavender, and peppermint oil, which helps it to cleanse the hair while simultaneously revitalizing it.
“What separates our collection from other hair care collections is that we took our time to make the collection and overall brand about teaching our customers that it is not just about seeing the hair growth. We give a series of instructions + steps they need to take to not only grow their hair but to keep that growth and maintain the health of their hair long-term,” Thompson and Wilson explained.
Revival Deep Treatment
Many women would typically choose to apply the deep conditioner following the application of the regular conditioner, but when it comes to the DreamGirls Healthy Hair Care System™, the steps are flipped. The Revival Deep Treatment should be applied before the Renewing Conditioner.
“Not only does our Revival Deep Treatment feel good on the scalp, but also smooths and softens the hair. The hair will be more manageable after usage of the Revival Deep Treatment, and there is a noticeable difference in the strength and elasticity of the hair’s natural pattern,” Thompson and Wilson explained. “The treatment addresses common hair growth issues, promotes blood circulation in the scalp and stimulates hair follicles, creates elasticity and strength of the strands, and porosity.”
As a follow-up to the Revival Deep Treatment, the Renewing Conditioner should be applied.
“We always wanted to help women. We’d see our clients’ confidence skyrocket after styling their hair and it was an incredible feeling. We use our salon chairs as tools to uplift, motivate, inspire, and praise women for their natural beauty, both inside and out,” the sisters add. “When speaking with our clients, we like to share positive thoughts about them that they may not always see within themselves. The goals of DreamGirls is to break the stereotype that Black women can’t have long, natural hair, and to help build their confidence in knowing that they can do anything!”
True Essence Oil Treatment
The True Essence Oil Treatment has multiple uses. Not only can it be applied as a hot oil treatment, but it can also be used “regularly on distressed ends during and after styling,” the DreamGirls website explains.
“Each product in the kit has transformative properties for the hair issue it was created to address. Our products have been used and tested with thousands of proven results in our salons, and our kits are available for purchase so that everyone can take our effective hair care knowledge home with them.”
