So I put on my little cosmetic chemistry hat, and I did some digging and created the Four Naturals Treatment, which is now patent-pending and dermatologically tested," she told the outlet. “On You, my hair was heat straightened every day for six months. And I left that show with more hair than I had when I showed up.
