If everyone’s hair responded to the same products, the beauty world would be a much easier place. But that’s not the case. Instead, we have to try product after product, brand after brand, searching for “the one” that will treat our locks right.
Family practice physician Dr. Ena Hennegan experienced the frustrations of finding a product that would treat her and her family’s multi-ethnic hair safely and effectively, to the point where she actually just created her own line of products made specifically for various ethnicities. As Dr. Ena tells it, “So I thought about it, one night while I was looking at all of the different bottles that we had sitting around the perimeter of our tub, and I decided that someone needs to do better than what’s available to us. Then I thought, why not me?”
The Many Ethnicities beauty line consists of shampoos, conditioners, and leave-in conditioning creams for children and adults. Dr. Hennegan made very conscious decisions in what ingredients she put in the formulas, such as shea butter, vitamin B5, argan, and more, ensuring these products would be safe, gentle, and effective.
“We worked on Many Ethnicities’ six products as a concept for more than two years with world-class chemists right here in the Chicago suburbs. We tested prototype formulations of safer, gentler, more natural formulations on our different hair types at home, and then with our friends,” says Dr. Hennegan.
