Oprahâs Hair Guru Debuts New Collection for Natural Hair<br />

Celebrity Hair Stylist, Andre Walker Debuts New Natural Hair Line, The Gold System

a great Rewards Program too!  I like having my own site where I can explain the products and deliver hair information to my customers. But soon I will also go into stores, because I know that is also convenient for some people. The Gold System is in pre-sale online right now, delivered to you early August 2013.  I advise ordering now because that first supply is selling fast. Dont get left out!

EBONY.com: We’ve seen Oprah wearing her hair natural a little more lately. Do you use the Gold System on Oprah’s hair?

AW: Oh yes, I use The Gold System on Oprah, and also Q-Oil for a quick hair drink and shine (this is a product from my original collection and is also available on the website). Once I got the formulas close to perfect, I started using the system on Oprah and we are having fun with natural looks, because she has very little relaxer in her hair these days. You know I am an advocate of a very, very light texturizer if your hair is very thick and kinky and tends to dry out and break.  There is that blending of nature and science again, which I believe in! I think Oprah's hair speaks for itself, and yes now The Gold System is my regimen for her. The Get It Straight Styling Crème even works great on weaves, which she sometimes wears. I am telling you, this line covers it all, so yes, I use The Gold System on Oprah all the time.

EBONY.com: What do you think separates your Gold System from the selections of natural hair system sets out there?

AW: In addition to using the highest quality products, which is very important, I formulated The Gold System based on my standard of excellence.  I can't be half stepping and keep my job doing Oprah's hair, and I wanted that same level of excellence available to every woman with coarse hair. I compared my results to everything out there.  Most shampoos, conditioners, creams, gels, are not what they should be, in my opinion. The Gold System is in a category by itself because of the results. That's the bottom line. When I say Beautiful Kinks, I mean Beautiful Kinks!  

EBONY.com: What are three tips that you can offer for women in the process of going fully natural? 

AW:  If you are going fully natural, my best advice is to just do it. Big Chop. Just live in the moment and enjoy getting to know your real hair again. When Dianne did it, she realized she had not experienced her own natural hair since age 10, when she got her first relaxer. Back then, relaxers were strong stuff.  So as we tested formulas on her new natural hair, she was also on a journey discovering her real texture and thickness and beauty. I realized how exciting this can be for a woman. If you wash often -- at least twice a week or more -- and use The Gold System, your new hair will grow quickly to the length you prefer, and you will be like a new woman.  I think it is a new day for us in terms of my motto, which is “Make Peace With Your Hair."  That's why I started Andre Walker Hair. To help give you beautiful hair peace.
