3 Simple Ways to Prevent Winter Hair Damage


Lock in weekly moisture treatments with warn, not hot water.


Line wool caps and other protective head gear with a silk scarf to avoid breakage


Never go outside with wet hair. Aside from a nasty cold, you also run the risk of breakage. In cold enough temperatures, hair can freeze and become brittle causing uneven breakage.

Rebuild. Restore. Renew

Our award winning relaxer Miracle Renewal™ has been getting lots of buzz and our #AuthenticBeauties have asked lots of questions.  In any healthy hair journey, it's important to know just what a product is all about. What makes Miracle Renewal™ so revolutionary is the addition of our DuoCare Technology™ Post Relaxer System.  Sounds fancy, right? Well, it is!  When you relax, your hair bonds are broken to cause hair to lay flat.  This can cause hair to become weak and break more easily than normal when not properly treated.  Our DuoCare Technology™ stops that problem at the root...pun intended.

DuoCare Technology™ is two innovative technologies that can only be found in New Miracle Renewal™. Technology 1 is a complex-based protein that penetrates the hair’s cortex to rebuild it from the inside.  Technology 2 is specifically engineered to seal down hair cuticles that have been damaged through the straightening process. Rebuilding the hair’s cortex from within and sealing the cuticle to provide instant damage repair.

Hair is left 2xs stronger, with 3x more shine and 4xs less damage after relaxing with Miracle Renewal™! We'd love to hear more questions about the new relaxer system and look forward to hearing about YOUR experience with Miracle Renewal™! Take the Relaxer Challenge now by heading down to your local Sally Beauty Supply or logging on to our product page and order yours for a chance to share your picture and story on our website!

3 Rules for Relaxing Responsibly

3 Rules for Relaxing Responsibly

DON’T Touch Skin

Relaxing your hair requires a chemical treatment. It is intended to work within the structural bonds of the hair. By making contact with skin, irritation and burning may occur. Relaxer should be applied to hair only, avoiding contact with the delicate scalp skin. The use of gloves to protect hands is essential to responsible application of relaxer product.

 DO Base Scalp

Dr. Miracle’s relaxer products, including Miracle Renewal™, contain a petroleum basing protectant. To ensure skin remains unaffected by relaxer product spillage or accidental contact with the scalp and skin, base scalp and the perimeter of the face, ears and nape. If you require additional basing product, try Vaseline, Coconut Oil or Cocoa Butter.

PLEASE Time it

Contrary to popular beliefs, leaving relaxer on the hair longer than the required will not make hair straighter. In fact, it will cause strands to become weak and brittle. Even if you have been relaxing for years, take the time to read directions thoroughly and follow timing instructions to a t for safety and optimal results.

Keisha’s Miracle Makeover

Keisha’s Miracle Makeover

Keisha Knows How To #RelaxWithConfidence


Thought we didn't stand by our products? Well, you couldn't be further from the truth! Our Creative Director, Keisha decided that it was time to revise her look and chose to take the #RelaxerChallenge along with 9 other Authentic Beauties who believe in (Dr.) Miracle's! After ELEVEN years as a naturalista, she decided to go back to her roots as a relaxed and ready beauty. "You can have relaxed and healthy hair just like you can have natural and damaged hair" said Keisha when asked about her concerns with relaxer after over a decade of being chemical straightner free.

What did she love most? "The Miracle Moisture Masque left my hair feeling soft and supple. And it straightened quickly without any burn or irritation."  She suggests that users read the directions thoroughly as the Duo-Care Technology system is a new entry in the relaxer category that consumers are not yet familiar with. Over processing can still cause damage even when replenishing hair with protein, vitamins and Extra Virgin Coconut Oils.

Check below the cut for Keisha's video testimony on #MiracleRenewal and stay tuned for more transformation! Miracle Renewal is available at local beauty and barber supply stores and at our website at

How To Care For Your Hair & Scalp When Wearing a Weave

How To Care For Your Hair & Scalp When Wearing a Weave

When wearing a weave, caring for the hair under there should be a top priority. Proper scalp maintenance will ensure that once the weave is removed, your new growth is healthy and damage is minimal.


Don't be the victim of a bad hair weave

Here are four tips to keeping your hair healthy while wearing a weave:


Loosen up the stitch

 Often weaves are installed far too tightly. The tension on your follicles can cause your hair fall out. Once a follicle is permanently damaged, hair will no longer be able to grow from it. Additionally, weaves worn too tightly around the crown of the head cause the most common type of permanent hair loss in African-American women referred to as traction alopecia.


Don’t neglect your scalp

While the hair is protected from heat under the weft, the scalp is often left to fend for itself. Remember that a healthy scalp is the foundation for healthy hair. Be sure to work natural oils beneath the weave onto your scalp and massage them in. If the weave is made of human hair, getting a little product on it won’t hurt it, but synthetic hair won’t properly absorb the products, so you’ll need to be careful not to get oils on it.

Dr. Miracle's GRO OIL

Dr. Miracle’s Daily Moisturizing GRO OIL is blended with Vitamins A, D, E, Avocado and Aloe Vera to soothe and treat the scalp.


 Shampoo and Relieve Itch

This reduces the buildup of product used for styling your extensions and removes dead skin cells to help the scalp breathe.  Using Dr. Miracle’s Detoxifying Pre-Shampoo Mist in addition to your weekly wash will alleviate itchiness, lift flakes, remove impurities and exfoliate your scalp with Vitamin E, Witch Hazel and Neem Oil.

Give Your Hair a Break

Forgo extensions for 2-3 weeks between installations to allow your hair and scalp to breathe.  Visit your stylist for a trim to remove split ends and be sure to deep condition the hair and scalp. Avoid ponytails and other styles that put stress on the hair and always use a protectant when styling with heating tools.

This is Dr. Watson, Health and Wellness Advisor for Dr. Miracle’s signing off on your prescription for healthy hair. Thanks for watching.

Spring/Summer Hair Tips

Spring/Summer Hair Tips


The chill in the air is beginning to dissipate as the sun shines through for the spring/summer months. As the weather changes, so does our hair regimen. With heat waves come an increased chance for dryness and damage to the hair. Here are a few tips to keep your hair shining this season!

1.) Moisturize, Moisturize, Moisturize

Amp up your regular shampoo & conditioning routine by adding a steam treatment. Yes, it’s hot under that hood dryer but the steam will help open your pores and add a natural shine to your hair. Add Dr. Miracle’s Follicle Healer Deep Conditioning Treatment to intensify the process.

2.) Minimize the use of heat

Now’s the time to let your tresses roam free. Dr. Miracle’s Curl Kit is perfect for setting your hair on flexi rods (no matter the length), while applying the Weightless Moisturizing Crème, let air dry and add the Frizz Control Serum; it only takes a tiny bit to tame those curls!

3.)  Try Protective Styles

If you’re lucky the summer is all about vacations on the beach or pool parties, exercising outdoors on a hiking trail and laying out to get the perfect tan. Who really wants to think about hair? A protective style (i.e. a sew-in of extensions) can keep your natural hair protected from damage and allow you the opportunity to experiment with a new, fun look!

4.) Make 'The Big Chop'

You’ve been thinking about getting that haircut all winter long; now's the perfect time to go for it! It may be a big commitment but the effortless style and styling make it completely worth it!

The Facts About Fibroids

The Facts About Fibroids

At a recent product launch event I was asked a very interesting question by one of the editors during the panel discussion.  The young lady was a writer for a popular consumer magazine and had concerns about the use of hair relaxers and their relationship to uterine fibroids.  After responding to her question I felt it would be a good opportunity to talk about fibroids in general so those who have questions or concerns can get a better understanding of this condition. 

I reviewed the current studies from the AAFP (American Academy of Family Practice). I hope it helps educate all who read this blog.

What are uterine fibroids?

Fibroids are benign growths (not cancer) in the muscular wall of the uterus. These growths can be very tiny or as large as a cantaloupe.

The incidence of uterine fibroid tumors increases as women grow older, and they may occur in more than 30 percent of women 40 to 60 years of age.

Fibroids are very common. At least 20% of women 35 years of age or older have fibroids. Many women have them without knowing it. Black women are at a higher risk (3 to 4 times higher) of having fibroids than women in other racial groups. And more likely to have symptoms caused by fibroids.

Once a fibroid is formed, it tends to grow larger until menopause, after which fibroids tend to shrink, due to the effects of estrogen.

Most women who have fibroids don't have symptoms. In other women, fibroids can cause heavy bleeding during the menstrual period. Periods may last much longer than usual.

Fibroids may also cause pain or a feeling of pressure or heaviness in the lower pelvic area (the area between the hip bones), the back or the legs. Some women have pain during sexual intercourse. Others have a constant feeling that they need to urinate. There may also be a feeling of pressure in the bowel. Some women have constipation or bloating.

Fibroids as can cause pelvic or urinary obstructive symptoms, infertility, and pregnancy loss.

How are fibroids treated?

There are many treatment options for women who have fibroids. Fibroids that don’t cause any symptoms may not need treatment. For fibroids that do cause symptoms, treatment options include:

  •  Medicine
  •  Noninvasive or minimally invasive procedures
  • Traditional surgery

Your doctor will help you figure out the best treatment option for your fibroid.  Treatments based on individual patient characteristics.

I hope this review of fibroids is helpful in education you all.  As to the answer to the young woman’s question that started this conversation I say this:

I did indeed find a hypothesis study that surveyed women who had used hair relaxers about the history with fibroids.  The most important thing to remember is that studies like this are not showing cause but rather attempting to determine a possible link.  In it is my opinion that the above mention study along with another that attempted to see the link between the lactose intolerance to risk of fibroids, only reinforces what we already know.  African American women are more likely to develop fibroids.  African American women also relax their hair and have a higher incidence of being lactose intolerance.  The fact that the African American women use relaxers and are lactose intolerant most likely has nothing to do with the development of uterine fibroids.  I’m Dr. Watson and I approve this message.

Is it really your relaxer? Medical Professionals say "No".

In good health,

James Watson
