Black Women Spend Half a Trillion Dollars on Haircare and Weaves! Why?

May 12, 2011  |  

Black women spend half a trillion dollars to keep our hairstyles tight, our weaves looking good and our “kitchens” tamed. Why do we do this? Our sister site the Atlanta Post explores the mind-boggling business side of the black haircare industry, but also the psycho-social impacts behind spending goo-gobs of money on appearance in such a way.

Very interesting read!

Do you think there is any type of psychological reason or impact behind black women buying weaves?
