@newdiva Clap. I said the same thing on LHCF. There's a load of black owner websites so they may be down with stocking BBSS. Check out the lhcf thread, many ladies are thinking along the same vein as you...

I wanted to update the thread title but dont know how. LHCF ladies have moved "sensitive planning" talks to a FB page. Its a private page so they have to accept you. We are brainstorming and trying to come up with planing times so people can be there at the same time and not keep missing each other and the discussion. Here's the link https://www.facebook.com/groups/BlackHairCareIndustry/

In my city there were 2 black owned bss stores and they had to close down because they were not able to get any of the popular hair and products. One of the ladies just turned her shop into a wig and braiding shop

I have a different perspective.
They are placing way to much emphasis on the products. At the same time neglecting the hairstylists who are all black women entrepreneurs for the most part. All of that money stays in the community. For a $80 style maybe $5-10 of that is hair products (not counting weaves). I never understood the fixation people have on the fact bss are run by Koreans.

We can set trends but can't keep the money

Those two styles would cost around $150 to $200 in a shop. There's about $20-40 of weave if that for that style and maybe $2 of hair products. Most money goes to service. Which in turn goes to overhead etc..

It sure ain't. Black women are always bragging about how they would never pay a stylist $100 or a little more for services like a sew in(something that is worth the money if you don't know how to do it or what you're doing). But they have to have the best of the best virgin hair and will pay top dollar for it and have Keisha down the street put it in for only $40 or $50 maybe less.
