Optimum Haircare: AMLA Legend Launch w/ RHOA’s Cynthia Bailey

As you guys know, I’m here in New York for Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week! Some of my Pre-Fashion Week activities included attending various events; one of them was the launch of SoftSheen Carson’s New Optimum AMLA Legend Haircare Relaxer and Maintenance Line. The event held at Aire Ancient Baths in Tribeca was a pretty swanky affair hosted by RHOA’s Cynthia Bailey. Celebrity Hairstylist Johnny Wright, perhaps known most for giving First Lady Michelle OBama bangs was on hand to talk about how he works with SoftSheen and the AMLA Legend Brand.

It seems like these days haircare lines have been creating lines for either/or; it was refreshing to see a line that can be used by all hair types. I also like the fact that the AMLA Legend Relaxer doesn’t contain Lye and it doesn’t smell like perm. I hate that chemical smell, you won’t get that with this collection.DSC07868 Optimum Haircare: AMLA Legend Launch w/ RHOAs Cynthia Bailey DSC07843 Optimum Haircare: AMLA Legend Launch w/ RHOAs Cynthia Bailey

The Dr. was there to discuss the many uses of AMLA, from using it on your hair to putting it on your skin; you can even eat AMLA.  AMLA has been used by Indians for decades and since we are constantly buying their hair (weave, extensions) it’s about time we learned some of their hair secrets.DSC07862 Optimum Haircare: AMLA Legend Launch w/ RHOAs Cynthia Bailey

Celebrity Hairstylist Johnny Wright came on stage to discuss how everyone can use this collection! We were shown models with different hair types and how AMLA Legend worked for their hair type: from natural to relaxed and color-treated hair. Wright who has been doing the First Lady’s hair exclusively for over 4 years, knows a thing or 2 about hair!DSC07821 Optimum Haircare: AMLA Legend Launch w/ RHOAs Cynthia Bailey DSC07847 Optimum Haircare: AMLA Legend Launch w/ RHOAs Cynthia Bailey DSC07859 Optimum Haircare: AMLA Legend Launch w/ RHOAs Cynthia Bailey DSC07854 Optimum Haircare: AMLA Legend Launch w/ RHOAs Cynthia Bailey DSC07851 Optimum Haircare: AMLA Legend Launch w/ RHOAs Cynthia Bailey DSC07840 Optimum Haircare: AMLA Legend Launch w/ RHOAs Cynthia Bailey
