SoftSheen-Carson’s Dark & Lovely has named actress and model Bria Murphy, 21, its newest face. Murphy, the daughter of actor Eddie Murphy and Nicole Murphy, says she’s used Dark & Lovely since her preteens when she began relaxing her hair. She now can be seen in print and TV ads for Healthy Gloss 5, a reformulated relaxer kit that targets the five signs of healthy hair, as well as its accompanying hair care products. SoftSheen-Carson is also paying mind to the professional side of the business with a salon-only relaxer, Optimum Advanced, formulated to reduce damage with a Smart Lye Oil Fusion technology, containing 25 percent less sodium hydroxide, plus keratin and argan oil. It’s the brand’s first relaxer to launch exclusive to salons.

In honor of Rihanna’s 30th birthday, we took a look back at an interview with the Barbados-native when she was just 18 years old. Here, she talked about her second album, “A Girl Like Me” in 2006. “I want to be me. I want people to fall in love with who Rihanna is, and that’s why I want the album to be about me so people can really find out who this girl Rihanna is, because they only know the ‘Pon de Replay’ girl.” Fast forward 12 years, and she’s released six more albums and has become a powerhouse in both the fashion and music industries. Happy birthday, @badgalriri 🎈(📷: Pavel Antonov) #wwdarchive
