Default Re: Relaxers made especially for Hispanics

Uh huh... I do see a lot of very sleek black hair, but it never moves and God forbid a gust of wind should come up. It's hair that's just "there"...

I have no answer to this problem...

However, I don't know what Hispanic hair looks like before and after a process. No one seems to have hair like our hair anyway.

Hi blossom, I just wanted to add that many hispanics have African ancestry, and quite a few have hair textures similiar or identical to ours.
I live in a predominantly Dominican populated area and seeing Latinas get relaxers (bantu or revlon) is not unusual.

this is simply just another marketing ploy, ALL relaxers basically perform the same action, maybe this one is milder. My biggest fear is that one day i'll walk into a salon that already has a "hispanic" relaxer out and they'll tell me "No, you need black relaxer."

Default Re: Relaxers made especially for Hispanics

before i came to this board I had hair that just sat there. Now my hair moves and shakes and bounces. I think it has a lot to do with moisture.

About the lifeless thing-- I think when black women get a relaxer the stylist automatically assumes that straight means as straight as possible. In fact when I got to the stylist I have to argue with her to not flat iron and press my hair!! Before she would relax, wrap and dry under a hood, hot comb it, and flat iron!!! My hair was soo thin!! And I have extremely thick hair so for her to get it that thin took a lot of heat. Now that I am educated I let her know-- you will not use tht much heat on my hair ever again so back away from me with that stove *****! Plus I am in the process of finding a new stylist I can trust!

But my point in this rant was to say education is the key and I see so many women walking around wih some messed up hair because they listen to what companies tell them. I don't even read black hair magazines anymore because I think there's way to much advertising in there, especially advertising that is deceitful-- and I have a feeling that the articles are sometimes mini ads for hair companies.

That being said, I do believe that this spanish relaxer will be successful for a while and then it will blow over! Hispanics, especially carribean hispanics, aare practically the same as us, and they can use the same stuff we do too. But I do think that black companies should also put hispanic women on the boxes as well to try and combat this game revlon is trying to play. This way hispanic women will know that these products are just as good if not better than the other.

Next thing you know those exec's will realize that Indians Arabs and some Asians use some type of relaxer and market for "them" also. I know an Indian guy who uses "super ghetto relaxer"-his words.

A Hispanic relaxer???!! That is like saying, "An American relaxer." STUPID.

Dear Revlon, Hispanic is not a race. I repeat, "Hispanic" is not a race.

yup its a marketing technique. Whites and Latins have been using 'black' relaxers for years.

O/T but you are in sales too? I use the same techniques when dealing with customers: I know exactly how you feel, your neighbors felt the same way, but what they found was that when I gave them an apples to apples comparison, I was able to offer your neighbors a comparable or better price.

Now you'd be interested in a comparable or better rate right?!?

ha ha ha!

Unfortunately these companies prey on dividing us and having us believe bogus crap just to make a few bucks... Yeah and when the hell will they learn that many hispanics have African ancestry hence having very similiar hair textures... Oh but according to these A-hole companies spanish speaking people of african descent prefer a less harsh relaxer than American people of african descent.
