Imagine being in the beauty aisle of your local supermarket. You just need a few simple products like shampoo, conditioner and a good moisturizer. You know, normal stuff. You look high and low but only see the same brands that only seem to cater to the same two hair textures. As you scan the aisle up and down, you begin to lose hope… But wait! Your eyes come across a familiar sign that reads “ethnic”.
This “ethnic” section has become something that you’ve grown to accept, even though you know you deserve better. This section is pretty different from the rest of the aisle. For starters, it only includes a few generic products that don’t really suit your hair and beauty needs/goals. On top of that, it’s so small that you almost miss it. Every time. Even though the “ethnic” section has been one of the few constant throughout your entire life Shopping for hair and beauty products can go from a seemingly simple, or even fun, errand to a confidence-shattering experience.
