Title appears somewhat unusual, proper?  It appears we can’t escape the shenanigans and tomfoolery of Donald Trump, whom I shall confer with as 45….like a prisoner as a result of the 45th presidency seems like we have now all been sentenced to a 4 yr bid. Even when you dwell exterior of the USA, #45 has been affecting you too.  Insulting different world leaders, having United States residents stranded in your international locations, insulting what could also be your faith…I might go on, however I received’t. The purpose is daily, we see, hear or examine one thing else idiotic 45 has finished.  So how does this fluke of an electoral selection have an effect on your hair journey?

It’s easy.  I’ve at all times promoted and supported Black owned hair businesses.  Each single time I share a submit in regards to the significance of supporting Black companies, some ignorant simpleton innocently unaware particular person feedback “I don’t see what shopping for Black owned hair merchandise has to do with something” or “I don’t care who makes the product, so long as it really works.”

Each single time I shake my head with disappointment.  It’s 2017. When are WE as an entire going to acknowledge the significance of getting economical energy.  Have a look at 45…he comes from a wealthy household. He’s wealthy. He’s placing individuals into workplace who’re wealthy. Sadly, they aren’t simply wealthy, they’re immoral, unqualified and corrupt, however I digress.  The purpose is he’s wealthy and regardless of having zero {qualifications} he was in a position to safe essentially the most highly effective human place on the earth.  I stress human as a result of everyone knows God trumps Trump.



Protecting our cash in our neighborhood is likely one of the strongest methods to battle oppression. Our civil rights leaders have preached this for years.  Recycle Black {dollars}, construct black companies, purchase Black, minoritize your cash…whichever slogan you want, it matches the invoice.  Even when it looks like one thing trivial that doesn’t even matter, like hair merchandise, let’s not overlook the black hair care business is a HALF TRILLION DOLLAR enterprise, and that determine is from 2014!  Since that point extra black owned hair corporations have began!  In actual fact there are such a lot of high quality manufacturers that I haven’t even had time to attempt a fraction of them!

I’ve posted about my favorite black owned hair care companies and I’ll proceed to advertise and assist as many as I probably can.  There are two full hair care traces that I personally have used and assist:
