Damaged hair does not have to be your norm. You can power your hair back to health with our BBD Stretch treatments and Indigo product lines. Healthy hair starts with The Dooplex.

BBD Stretch Growth Creme is one of our signature products; a powerful, yet gentle leave-in and water-soluble reconstructor, made with plant based amino acid enzymes, designed to effectively repair hair breakage and strengthen your locks.

Named after the man himself, "Big Bad D," has been a professional in the hair care industry for over 25 years. BBD began his career in the 1980's with Dr. Donnie Cannon at Donnie's Curls (one of the preeminent black hair care manufacturers from the 1960's), until the company was sold in the 1990′s.

INDIGO is a line of premium-quality hair care products normally sold exclusively to stylists, but now available to The Dooplex customers directly.

BBD Stretch and Indigo keeps hair moist and elastic, so it won't break during or after a weave or extensions, coloring or relaxing.

Dr. Earles has extensive experience treating hair and skin issues of African American men and women and people of color.

Born in 1940 in New Orleans, Dr. Earles left the Navy in 1972, and moved to Chicago to become a dermatological resident at Rush Presbyterian St. Luke's Hospital. Finishing his residency in 1975, he opened a private practice in Bronzeville, which would eventually grow to become one of Chicago's largest dermatologic practices.

In 1997, Dr. Earles won a United States Patent: "A Composition for Treating Seborrheic Dermatitis of the Scalp," which would evolve into his dandruff product, the Dr. Earles Hair and Scalp Treatment. The Treatment would serve as the cornerstone for an entire line of hair, scalp and skin care products.

Our best beauty tips for great-looking skin:

2. Moisturize. For blemishes and dark spots try Dr. Earles Blemish Remover & Hydrating Cream.

3. Help a brother out. Give your guy Dr. Earles Razor Bump Treatment.

BBD STRETCH GROWTH CREME is unique. It's made with plant life enzymes that are smaller and more easily absorbed. This formulation is beneficial because plant based enzymes are packed with many more nutrients than animal protein. So, by using the best ingredients available we profoundly increased the product's effectiveness. It immediately stops breakage, adds elasticity and promotes a faster path to healthier hair after just one treatment. And with continued use, BBD STRETCH GROWTH CREME will have your hair growing down your back!

First off, ninety percent of deep conditioners don't work. Most of them are heavily formulated with lanolin, petroleum and/or heavy waxes -- ingredients that only temporarily coat the hair making it feel soft. But, they don't address the real issue – a lack of moisture.

Since these products are made with animal protein and are void of any real moisturizing agents, your hair will soon return to its dry and unhealthy state.

Most manufacturers use animal protein because it's cheap and readily available. However, animal protein is problematic because the molecules are too large to be easily absorbed into the hair shaft. This is why most deep conditioners cannot restore your hair to its past glory.
