  1. Sleek haired people thought my hair was magical because it could defy gravity. It bothered me hearing black girls who were doing my hair saying "Girl, you got good grade hair!" it was a compliment but saddened me that they thought their hair wasn't nice.. I made up my own terms such as "high maintenance" hair and "wash & go." call this hair what it is ! Kinky/coarse textured! btw, there are other ethnicities that could have "black" hair.. Polynesians, Arabs, Jews, Some Hispanics (probably form mixing) & Aborigines too for example. Id even see redhead Europeans with "afro" hair…this is why I prefer calling it kinky or coarse hair.

  2. Businesses were starting to wonder what's going on ? What the hell do they think ? They need to market their dangerous products to their own people They are not the authority on what black people need for our hair or anything else about us for that matter We have been caring for our hair and our families for centuries just like they have The arrogance of another nation to think they can capitalize on us forever Focus on your own people This gravy train has run dry

  3. THIS IS WHAT I DONT UNDERSTAND. YOU STOP PERMING BUT YOU STILL WANT THOSE " I GOT THAT GOOD HAIR LOOK". PEOPLE STILL USE PRODUCTS TO MAKE IT SEEM AS IF THEY HAVE NATURALLY SMOOTH CURLY HAIR. CANT GET RID OF STILL WANTING A PIECE OF SO CALLED GOOD HAIR.

  4. We still need to be careful. Some companies are making "natural" products for black hair that are still filled with chemicals
    Check the ingredients on the back. Natural are deserves truly natural products, not pseudo natural products.

  5. What the story skips over is who is really making money in the Black hair industry. It’s not black entrepreneurs. The international distribution rights for a lot of these products are owned be Asians and whites. There is a hair supply store in my city that caters to black woman and it is owned by Asians. They sell everything! All of the products featured here, fake hair, wigs. Sales people are Black and the people at the cash registers Asian. The place was packed with black women who were more concerned about getting the the cheapest price for hair products than keeping their money in the community. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing and I walked right out! This is the one industry that should be fully controlled and profited by us. Why can’t people see that??

  6. I am thankful for these products that help us beautiful black women care for and show off our thick beautiful hair. What I find disappointing is that even the black owned black hair care products companies charge unbelievably high high highest prices for these products. It only surprises me that that black owned companies do this. We are going to buy these products. They will still make huge profits. Why over charge black women? Help us and yourselves at the same time. I'm just sayin'

  7. I don't care if the person that is selling the natural hair product is biracial, light skinned or white, as far as the product is affordable and it works, I'll support thier business.

  8. The money makers of the black hair movement are All Asian/Indian hair store owners, manufacturers, importers of hair (nail salons as well) and white corporations.

  9. I'm all for black owned hair products but both these companies charge up the butt. I have tried them and I found nothing about them to warrant the price they charge. I make my own ish in my own kitchen now also and honestly with what I pay for the ingredients I could sell my stuff for $6 a bottle and make a decent profit. So I think their prices are just greed in the end.

  10. Its nothing wrong with being natural. The problem is that these lazy women do not want to do nothing to their hair and it is standing all on the top of their head. So they used the excuse it's natural. Do something with that mess put a hot comb or something in it for real.

  11. Why is it always the light, almost white ppl are pro black? Is it cause they’re trying to make up for their blackness? Cause I always seem them with the darkest partners too. I’ve never seen actual black people act like this
