Natural hair salons are the biggest scammers. In an age where beauty salons seem to be found on every block, only a small few of these cater to kinks and curls. Natural hair salons who profess that they are experts on how to take care of natural hair seem to be the main ones trying to capitalize on this market.
It is a well known fact that natural hair salons are very hard to find due to the fact that for years black women have been conditioned to chemically treat their hair to appear more Eurocentric. With the natural hair movement currently on the rise, natural hair salons have been popping up but very few of them exist due to lack of knowledge on how to take care of natural hair.
Because of this huge gap in the market for natural hair, a lot of natural hair salons take advantage of this by charging high ridiculous prices for simple things that one can do at home for 1/3 of the price they charge you. It is bad enough that the same hair care companies that were once telling us not to be caught dead without a relaxer are now trying to capitalize on natural hair by revealing “natural hair products,” but now our own natural counterparts are doing the same.
It really all comes down to making money. What wonders can your $200 wash do for me that I cannot do at home for free? I would love to know.
