Curious About Madam CJ Walker’s Hair Products After Watching the Show? We Tried Them Out
Madam CJ Walker was a pioneer who created groundbreaking haircare products long before we became devotees of other popular brands that specifically cater to textured hair. The legendary businesswoman is the subject of Netflix's all-new limited series Self Made: Inspired by the Life of Madam C.J. Walker, which follows her life as she started her own beauty company from the ground up. Walker's products were pretty life-changing during her time, and luckily for all of us, they live on today.
MCJW Beauty, a brand inspired by Walker's legacy, recently launched a line of products that are being sold exclusively at Sephora, so of course we had to try them out ourselves. Read ahead to see which MCJW haircare products were our faves.
Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture The Tea Shine-Blasting ACV Treatment
Apple cider vinegar is used by many as a rinsing solution to remove product buildup from the scalp. Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture The Tea Shine-Blasting ACV Treatment ($26) does exactly that while providing your hair with a little moisture boost. When we tried it, we found that it was not only soothing, but the smell wasn't nearly as strong as other ACV products, and it worked nicely as a pre-shampoo treatment.
Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture On Repeat Weightless Moisture Jelly Shampoo
The idea of using a shampoo that comes in the form of a jelly does sound a little trippy, but believe us, Madam C.J. Walker On Repeat Weightless Moisture Jelly Shampoo ($20) will give your hair a gentle cleanse without stripping it of any essential oils and nutrients. It's also made with melon, which made our hair smell nice and fresh.

Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture Brand New Ridiculously Smoothing Mask ($26) is a crystallizing mask designed to soften and moisturize coily hair. It's made with a smooth, sweet-smelling formula that doesn't have a lot of slip, but still applies pretty easily.
Madam C.J. Walker Beauty Culture On Point Texture Definition Cream
