Trip to Dallas Part II - Let's Do Better!
Hello Beautiful People! How have you been? ...I haven't talked to you in a while so I'm back to let you know what's been going on.
If you read my personal post last week, I told you that I was going to Dallas once again, for a film screening this time and to interview a few people from the short film entitled, "What Things May Come"... all for an online magazine I helped start called (Empowered Magazine) and I'm the Associate Editor...it went well!!!
I had a BLAST, and I'll do it all over again. There were a few naturals in the building, in fact, the Director / Writer of the film was a Natural, and one young lady was actually in the process of transitioning to natural hair and getting ready to do the "Big Chop" soon. You can imagine how excited I was...so I made connections told them to visit Natural Expressions and so on!
|Gels & Other Hair Products|
|(Right View) Top Shelf are all Perms|
|The Eye Lash Collection was tremendous! The highest price lashes were $1.99|
I couldn't believe it...lol
As you can imagine! My mouth completely dropped when I walked into this store and saw the back top shelf. The WHOLE wall screamed, "HAIR DAMAGE"! In fact, the whole store screamed, "HAIR DAMAGE"! All I could do was shake my head at what I saw...this was horrible, but it is a choice. I was unable to take a picture of the front of the store which had more perms, for only $2.99, an easy buy! ...and if you like to wear weaves, it was ALL cheap. Everything! The wigs started off at $9.99 and the highest one I saw was only $69.99! I couldn't believe how one store could make the thought of going natural non-existent, or the thought of wearing your own hair. How could one store promote hair damage, short brittle unhealthy hair! How could women accept this, and continue on their hair damaged journey? Then again, this is what women choose, therefore...The owner's store, who aren't even in business to help our people, His store still stands. Their store is still in business while our beautiful black women's hair break-off, lifeless! Why...
