    cocomama: was it in this list:
    If not, I couldn't find your thread, but I think I've seen it before. Could you link me to it? I would like to add some of the content so its all in one place. The BOBSS may need a more profound statement from us-- and our willingness to help-- and participate in the initiative to recclaim black business. Also, for a thread, the thread title is really important. I did not know what BOBSS meant-- so I'm sure many others do not know.

    Hi virtuenow ,

    I think Afrikan Republic, Afroveda and Ari Hair and Body URL links are incorrect. Reviewing the coding: it has www.lipstickalley.com URL before the merchandiser's URL. When you click on it, it takes you LipStickAlley forums and not directly to the merchandiser site. Could this be reviewed to make the necessary corrections?

    Thanks.

    Re: Index of Black Owned Hair Companies & list Non-Black Owned (often mistaken for ou

    There is another thread on here that says Isoplus is black-owned. Can anyone confirm/deny this?


    ETA: Nevermind, I count four companies that make relaxers. Which still doesn't leave many choices. :ohwell:

    Re: Index of Black Owned Hair Companies & list Non-Black Owned (often mistaken for ou

    Thanks for this thread ladies! I want to support black businesses as much as possible from the list it looks like the bss stuff we grew up on isn't black owned at all, the brands that I use now that I'm natural are black owned and not full of mineral oil or petroleum. Just proves that black people know what black hair needs. :look: so glad curl junkie is on the good list

    I don't think Akamuti is black owned. I was going to place an order awhile back and looked in the about us section and from the info and pics I think its owned and managed by a collective.

    ** Disclaimer**:
    Please note, **I will not be updating the original posts**. I do not have the time or energy to keep following every company on this voluminous list or every post. That was never my intention. I did, however, put a lot of work & time into checking the original posts (when originally posted in 1st thread); confirming the lists; adding to the lists; and locating companies/distributors.

    **Members have added updates to the thread**

    **Please follow the thread for the most up to date accounting of black owned businesses. Remember, this is a group project not my self project! So please CONTRIBUTE TO THE THREAD and add your updates on the list by posting info and links in the thread. Keep every up to date on the newest black owned businesses.

    Thanks ladies!

    This BSS just opened up not too long ago. I think the owner is still getting her business together *but* I had a very pleasant shopping experience and she has a number of things that usually need to be ordered online with lengthy wait times/$$ shipping fees.

    The Curl Kitchen
    3428 S. King Drive
    Chicago, Illinois 60616
    (312) 273-3646
    I believe typical hours are 11:00 am - 6:00 pm, Tuesday-Saturday, but you should call before heading to this shop because I hear hours can vary.

    Subscribe, me too. Has anyone done an updated confirmation on whether Shea Moisture is still black owned? Small black businesses get bought out-- and then still try to appear to be black owned.

    On one of their containers Sundial Brands is listed as the company that makes Shea Moisture. http://www.sundialbrands.com/ On their "about us" page, all of the members are black but I don't know how current it is...
