I believe that Alberto Culver is owned by Unilever now. Not sure if they sold all of it or just divisions, but they just started marking things with the UNI moniker.

I agree. This should be a sticky. Allandra Supergirl What do you think?

And virtuenow I'm pretty sure I've read here on LHCF that ORS is black-owned. Did they sell the company?

ORS is not black owned. I believe it is Asian or white owned. Look at what the ladies at BHM discovered about Cantu: Their regular website presents like a black owned company w/nothing but black faces & products . But when you go to their company website-- not a black face in sight. But surprise guys, since we complained about it here and on BHM, Cantu has now added a black female exec. See the website below.
Here is Cantu's company website: http://advancedbeautysystems.com/company.html

But this is the website they market to us: http://www.cantusheasoft.com/

Tell us what you think.

virtuenow - can you add NuGro, which is black owned. I LOVE their products. I try others, but always go back to them. Plus, their customer service is excellent.

Maybe the businesses should also be categorized by countries to help some ladies outside from the US know of black owned businesses.

virtuenow I started a BOBSS thread a while back with a list of the stores in everyone's area but it didn't really take off. I also tried to get the BOBSS association to give me a list but I got no response. Any suggestions?
