Ladies, Why did Y'all Koreans to Takeover the Black Hair Industry?

I go in on black women about a lot of shit, but this shit in absolutely inexcusable. How, when, and where did black women not only allow another ethnicity to take over an industry for products that are specifically meant for us, (especially black women,) and say that their not going to allow us into the industry, Y'ALL STAY DOING BUSINESS WITH THEM! I know that a black woman's desire to have long and lush hair like other ethnicities goes to the core of their being and define them as women, but at what cost. Does having a weave or a perm mean more to you than your self respect and dignity? I'm guilty of having a penchant for chicks with long straight hair, however, I've come to realize that shit you ladies use to get long straight hair isn't, nor was it ever meant for us. Also, after continued and extended use, the shit does irreparable damage to your hair and scalp. Not only that those racist Korean laugh at you for spending your hard earned dollars with them, after they've just straight up clowned you.

    who is this y'all you speak of? i've been doing my hair myself my whole life

    and how many times do you need to make this thread?

    1) You're Canadian.

    2) If most black women followed your lead, this wouldn't be an issue.

    But putting a bunch of that wasn't meant to be in your hair for vanity's sake is.

    i'm natural myself. always have been. i experimented with weave when i cut my hair, but i realized it wasn't my thing. i'm an advocate of natural hair because i do know the damage it causes, but like Loca said- it's not for everybody. and like she also said, i've seen more women come up in natural hair care.

    this is a very strange thread to me because all the hoes y'all talk about 'smashing' and 'EBRC'n' have weave. so, a simple-minded woman would believe that men actually LIKE the fake hair.

    i've even had a man tell me that he didn't really like women who wore their natural hair because of what the elements do to it [frizz up, get poofy] and that some women can't style their own hair properly.

    ^You can get Afro weaves, thus giving the illusion of natural hair. Really, it's whatever with me. It's just hair.

    Some of niggas are paying lip service saying you love natural hair, but it's more like in theory. B/c 9 times out 10 if I see a Black couple or someone a man is chasing after, the woman has a perm or a weave. IJS.

    To be fair though you can't really tell just from looking, especially at a distance if somebody's hair is natural or not. I've dated two women who were natural their entire live, never had anything touch their hair yet had women even with natural hair who didn't believe them and thought they had a perm or weave.

    OP shows he knows nothing about the history of the Black hair care industry.

    The Black hair care industry wasn't even originally Black dominated. It was white dominated.

    After Reaganism and the closing of Black shops due to economic hardship, Asians who had financial resources and connections to hair care distributors souped up the market. It's also harder for Black business people to attain loans and compete with Asians who already have tons of businesses in our neighborhoods.

    However, Black women are starting to dominate the natural hair care industry, as opposed to perms, weaves and other chemicals which major corporations and Asian owned businesses cater to. Individual Black women have nothing to do with hair distributors, corporate decisions, or attaining resources and access to the industry.

    This thread is dumb as fuck.

    I agree with everything except the bolded

    it's a legitimate question to ask why black women continue to buy products from a group who doesn't care for you or your people


    how would black women react in general if all of them who wore perms/synthetic hair

    were treated as coons/traitors to their own race

    I have recently gained a new found appreciation for natural hair as I learn more about the hair industry

    oh..i can't stand those 'afro-weaves'. what's the point in THAT.?! but i get how u can get the look w/o the work.

    some afro-centric men do look at women who get relaxers or weave as traitors.

    people ask me all the time if i get perms/relaxers tho. i hate it.

    What men like is healthy looking combed hair:

    not this shit:

    I'm sorry that shit ain't a hairstyle, unfortunately somebody convinced y'all that it was, and a lot of ladies that rock the natural hair in weird styles looks a damn fool and could be mistaken for:

    The cold part about is if black men had the black haircare industry on lock and wouldn't let them in, black women would be bitching, complaining and trying to organize all kinds of protests and shit.
