After fans glimpsed the “Empire” actress’ new video of her picking out and fluffing a super-defined twist-out, they were left begging to know what the secret is. Luckily for them, Henson promised to share details soon. But a hint may be hidden among the hashtags she included in her post.

The hair care line in question is TPH by Taraji, which she initially teased to fans in July.

โ€œAll naTUral and I fโ€“kin LOVE IT!!! canโ€™t WAIT to share my hair care system with you #TPHBeauty coming VERY SOON!!! ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿพ๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹๐Ÿ’‹,โ€ Henson captioned a selfie of her colored and curly locks.

Henson previously told People magazine she went natural during the filming of 2001’s โ€œBaby Boy.โ€

โ€œWhen I did โ€˜Baby Boyโ€™, I had new growth and I was ashamed,” she said in 2016. โ€œI was like, โ€˜Oh my God, my hair is terrible, donโ€™t look at my new growth.โ€™ The young lady who did my hair [for it] asked me, โ€˜What are you talking about? Your hair is beautiful! Why are you even getting a relaxer? All you have to do is know how to work it.โ€™ So I grew my relaxer out. I was overwhelmed at first, because you go from straight, silky hair, to โ€˜What is this?โ€™โ€

But since then, Henson has come around and has even dished on how she maintains her hair, which involved the use of natural hair care products. Yet after saying that chemically straightening her hair for over a quarter of a century “really damaged it,” her advice for moms with daughters is to avoid relaxers altogether.

โ€œEvery time I see women who have daughters, I say, โ€˜Donโ€™t ever [use a relaxer] on her hair.โ€™ If you donโ€™t, I think it will be thicker and grow longer,โ€ she said.
