Natural Hair Sector
You snooze, you lose! Black hair care bigwigs such as Dark & Lovely and Dr. Miracles were just too slow to meet the demands of the natural hair movement. Black women flocked to regain ground in the black hair care industry — a sector that lures in gobs of Black female buyers, but not many owners. Women of color such as Jane Carter (of Jane Carter Solutions), Rochelle Graham (of Alikay Naturals) , and Shelley Davis (of Kinky Curly) capitalized big by launching their natural hair lines in the mid-2000s. As Huffington Post points out, quoting research firm Mintel, the Black hair care industry is projected to become a $761 million market by 2017. What are you waiting for? Get up and get a piece of that pie!
