White and Asian companies have a lock on the black hair market yet the don't use ANY of the products. This is as ridiculous as dark skinned black people having a lock on suntan lotion distribution. By buying black we can put every non black owner of black hair products out of business. I would gladly pay a monthly fee to support access to black owned products to out community. Put the oppressors out of business. #blackhair #buyblack #blackbusiness #BlackOwnedBusiness #blackgirlmagic #blackwomen #blackentrepreneurs #supportsmallbusiness #BlackExcellence #blackbusinessowner #blackfashion
I agree. There are many bob brands now. I've seen 2 black beauty supply stores fold in the last decade because black people frequented the Asian stores and because they could not get the products from the Korean distributors. The book No Lye! : The African American Woman's Guide to Natural Hair Care chronicles the history of the transfer from a black dominated market to an Asian one. It's absolutely something that we could take back again if we put our minds to it.
