Here I go again . . . ECONOMICS!!

Koreans would lobby big time that such a pill never be manufactured and made available to Black women UNLESS they owned the patent to it and the sole right to sell it for at least 5-10yrs without competition.

"The Black hair care market is at least an $684 million industry. Hardly any of that cash makes it back to the Black community. A walk into your local beauty supply store will typically reveal a slew of brands that are Korean-owned. Korean business owners dominate supply and distribution of weaves, wigs and extensions. Aaron Ranen’s 2006 Black Hair documentary estimates that Koreans own close to 60% of the Black hair care industry market share.

Black women need to take their hair and hair care back. The Black hair care landscape has changed significantly since 2006, with the emergence of the “natural hair movement” (which has contributed to a 26% decline in relaxer sales). Black women choosing to rock their hair unprocessed has birthed an entirely new industry. And while there are Black owned (and formerly Black owned) companies that have grown of this movement, there are also large numbers of mainstream corporations also catering to Black women and their natural hair.

This tells me that we can completely change the focus of major hair companies and where they’re putting their money (many of them would have never invested in products for natural hair unless we made them do so), but we can’t financially benefit from this “trend” we’ve created.

What if Black women just up and decided next year that we all want our creamy crack back? What would happen then? These companies would keep it moving from the natural hair product lines they’ve been “dedicated” to, and start producing more creamy crack. We have the power, for real. We’re not just talking about new products that our strands have inspired creation for, but also new jobs, machines, technologies and infrastructures. These major hair companies have had to switch gears entirely to accommodate what we think is cool. But still, there’s no sign that our influence status in the hair game is actually helping us."

If we purchase from Black-owned companies, as demand goes up, prices go down and those Black businesses would be able to compete with major mainstream corporations.

Don't take the pill, my people. It's another time bomb that will do nothing but destroy you. Wigs, weaves are "protective" hairstyles? Don't be fooled. Do what you already know how to do to keep your natural hair clean and healthy. We were made different for a reason, which is unique to our beauty.

It ended well ...


"Members of the CBC appreciate Secretary Hagel for his prompt response to our letter and for seriously considering our concerns," chairwoman Rep. Chair Marcia Fudge, an Ohio Democrat, said in a written statement. "The secretary's response affirms his commitment to ensuring all individuals are welcomed and can continue to be proud of serving within our armed forces."

Even the female military members in combat can wear their hair anyway they desire. I guess the Pentagon has some type of image to protect. Probably to overshadow the double standard bathroom travesty.


Are you sure about that? (Females in combat can wear their hair anyway they desire?)

I don't think so ...


In the U.S. military, are female combat soldiers required to get buzz cuts?


... For the Army, some of the key points on allowed hairstyles are listed below:

Female soldiers will ensure their hair is neatly groomed, that the length and bulk of the hair are not excessive, and that the hair does not present a ragged, unkempt, or extreme appearance; likewise, trendy styles that result in shaved portions of the scalp (other than the neckline) or designs cut into the hair are prohibited.

Females will ensure that hairstyles do not interfere with proper wear of military headgear, protective masks, or equipment at any time; when headgear is worn, the hair will not extend below the bottom edge of the front of the headgear or below the bottom edge of the collar.
