“You Use White People Products?”

How many times have you heard this?

Me?

I cannot count how many times i have hear this crap. PLEASE give me a break. The next person that uses the words “white people products” ~cocks gun~ yea, you know whats up.

I say this simply based on the fact that it’s an ignorant statement that is justified by the marketing of products in commercials that use people of a fairer complexion for these products. Pantene proV, Aussie, John Frieda, TIGI , ect… the list goes on. So when i tell people what i use some of them stop and pause.

I use Aussie Moist Conditioner as my leave-in and it is one of the best leave-ins that i have ever used. I bought it on a whim too.

Let me tell you something, i wouldn’t care if it was used on Indian silky hair. If i turn the bottle over, read the ingredients , and i can identify things that i know i can use, IM GOING TO USE IT! I will not be thinking about the marketing for the product or anything so please get out of here with that.  Now if the product doesn’t work on MY HAIR, then i will dismiss it based on that but it won’t be because i think the contents in the bottle is prejudice.

These so called Afro American hair products that women of color are so gung ho about are the same products that still have the length of your hair an inch from your scalp. Am i saying that all of these products are worthless? No i am not, but what i am saying is the vast majority of them have things in it that wouldn’t allow my hair to grow to its full potential. But that’s just me.

The main difference between our hair and Caucasian hair is we need more moisture and a little bit more oil to add shine. There are other differences but that is the MAIN difference that I have found.

Don’t be let your eyes deceive you, educate yourself on the contents of a product before you just assume that it’s not for you because you saw a person of Caucasian descent advertising it.

  1. Where do I start??? First of all I rarely use ethnic hair products on my hair anymore. When I first went natural I swore by them. I wasn’t too knowledgeable about the natural process so I brought anything that said for natural hair. Long story short these products didn’t work for me. may work for some but not for me. I honestly believe that these ethnic hair products are just a marketing ploy because for 1) being natural is trendy these days and 2) African American women spend the most on hair products so why not profit off all vulnerability? These products contains ingredients that are damaging to our hair such as alcohol so we spend even more to fix that damage. Do your research ladies

  2. So true! I say the word Suave Humectant or Aussie Moist and get looked at sideways. If product work I could care less who it’s “suppose” too be.

    I also get the “looks” when I say cowash as well. God forbid black folks wet their hair more than once a month lol!

  3. Uggghhh!! I’m just disgusted! I hate when people identify products as “ethnic” or “white.” Excuse me, but the products are labeled with ingredients!! If you’re hair responds well with these ingredients: use it! If you are protein sensitive, like I am, stay away from it! Now, I will say that most products that are in the “ethnic” section of the grocery store contain mineral oil, petroleum or other pore blocking agents, where as the the other products dont. We need to refocus our minds to identifying what our hair likes: proteins or humectants and begin looking for such products.

    And to be honest! I don’t purchase hair products anymore. One or two and that’s it! A moisturizing conditioner and that’s all! Everything else is “natural” or organic and not labeled as a “hair” product!

    Calling a product a white girl product states that you are just as ignorant as the marketing team that decided to create a sign that says “Ethnic Hair Care!” *rolls eyes* #gositdown and research product ingredients! Thanks…

  4. i loved what you wrote. what a great advice that you gave!

  5. Hi there, I believe your web site could possibly be having browser compatibility problems. When I take a look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in IE, it has some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other than that, excellent website!|
