Hair Products from the 70's

 Black hair products from the 70's

Hair product ad from the 70"s
I love the creativity of black people when it comes to our hair. We are showing that product we produce don't just have to be oil and water but they can also have a technical aspect to them as well. We must start using our creative minds as we did back in the 70's even the 60's.

New Black Hair Products 
New black hair products are popping up everyday, and I laugh at some of our 'so-called hair product junkies". It will take there drive and dissatisfaction to keep everyone getting paid! Companies like Pantene's "Relaxed and Natural" are cashing in the the 'curl pattern specific'  marketing and there many 'ethnic' hair lines cropping up as these big companies do buy-outs with our mom-and-pop operations. I remember the ole stuff like VO5 hot oil treatments, Infusium Leave in Treatment, Ultra Sheen Hair Food

The best moisturizers for Black Hair
The best moisturizer were the ones for jerri curls World of Curls oil moisturizer was my favorite. It wasn't really a guessing game back then, the did what they claimed to do, wash, condition, easy comb-out.

Current products are making claims of rapid hair growth, altering curl patterns without chemicals, adding human-like proteins to the hair etc. Its no wonder we are all blinded by the celebrity endorsements, classy advertising and innovative packaging.

***I wish we could go back to when I was a kid, when shampoos didn't dry out the hair, when a little hair pomade and 2 scrunchies where all you needed to style your hair.
