They Still Want Your Money: 5 More Relaxer Companies Rolling Out Natural Hair Products

• Aug 11, 2014

In March of last year, I wrote an article for Black Girl Long Hair about 6 relaxer lines with natural hair products. The article came on the heels of reports of declining relaxer sales, and I very much felt that the reason these natural hair lines even came about is to recoup some of the money lost to small business brands like these, these, and these.

Now, I’m not one to brand‐bash — I believe pretty much everyone should get a fair shake. But I can’t help but feel like the motives for natural hair lines from relaxer slanging companies are a little, if not completely disingenuous. I mean, if you really supported #teamnatural…(fill in the blank).

Without further delay, here are 5 more companies that want your money back:

1. Dark and Lovely.…Again

Dark and Lovely made the list last year for their Au Naturale Anti Shrinkage line. They are the first and only relaxer company to release a second collection of natural hair products. Earlier this year, Dark n Lovely launched an anti‐breakage product collection featuring a Tension Release Hair Wash, Strength Restoring Conditioner, Root to Tip Mender, and Super Softening Hair Butter. If you noticed the influx of YouTubers reviewing the collection a few months ago, that was because Dark and Lovely made sure their new line made it into the hands of as many influencers as possible. They even sent me one, on behalf of BGLH. I tried out the products, but chose not to review them because there was this strange race for ratings that happened with folks trying to get their review up first, or make it the best one. Beyond that, I didn’t feel like the line offered me anything that a a small business brand I support wasn’t already better at. But I digress.

Overall, the line shows that Dark and Lovely is doing their homework on naturals, keeping prices at around $10 and paying attention to our need for products that will help prevent breakage. However, they’re still dropping the ball in a few other areas. The Tension Release Hair Wash (I didn’t know my hair was tense or needed to relax…but let’s move on for the sake of not making an entire article out of how problematic that name is) is sulfate‐free, but unfortunately some of the other products still contain (drying) isopropyl alcohol, and mineral oil labeled neatly as “C13‐14 isoparaffin”.

2. Creme of Nature

This one actually made my head hurt a little bit. Whenever I think of Creme of Nature and natural hair, all that comes to mind is how my blood boils a little bit every time I drive down LaCienega and see their “CURLS RULE” billboard. If you’re in L.A., it’s visible from the side going southbound, near Stocker. Creme of Nature is trying.…hard. Within their Argan Oil from Morocco line, Creme of Nature has released a subset of products designed for natural hair including Pudding Perfection Curl Enhancing Creme, Butter‐Licious Curl Hydrating Buttercreme, Twirling Custard Curl Styling Gel, and the Moisturizing Milk Masque Repairing Treatment — all around $9. Their products claim to contain no parabens, mineral oil, or petroleum, but unfortunately I was unable to get my hands on concrete information for the entire line. The one product I was able to find on the ground was the Twirling Custard and if the line follows the model of this one product, they are telling the truth. I actually purchased it with the intention of doing a comparison with other popular natural hair custards, but that fascination has since waned (the billboard).

3. Lottabody 

While it is true that Lottabody doesn’t dish out relaxer kits, their many iterations of setting lotion have been used for years on relaxed hair for roller sets and other sculpted styles. Taking notice that their popular potion was also being used by naturals all over to replicate roller and rod sets, Lottabody launched a Coconut & Shea Oils line. This line features a Custard Gele, Curl & Shine Milk, Texturizing Setting Lotion, Foaming Mousse, and Edge Gel. Although there are some products that are aimed exclusively at textured hair, Lottabody is trying to market this line as being for natural and relaxed hair. The entire line is available for under $6 and of all the brands, I’m most inclined toward this one. I actually picked up the Shape Me Custard Gele, because it is silicone free (right?), mineral oil and petroleum free, and paraben free.

4. Mizani

Originally posited as a salon brand for press and curls and relaxers, Mizani has rebranded themselves with the slogan “We are every color, every texture, every curl type.” Their True Textures line includes Curl Balance Shampoo, Cleansing Cream Conditioning Curl Wash, Curl Replenish Intense Moisturizing Masque, Curl Recharge, Moisture Stretch, Curl Set and Perfect Curl Cream Gel. Each product in the line is between $14 and $21, which is pretty expensive considering that some of them are patroleum/mineral oil based, and practically all of them contain isopropyl alcohol. The most useful thing to come out of the Mizani camp is the Curl Key — which is a little more in‐depth than the Andre Walker system, but still fails to account for complexities like multiple textures on one head.

5. Just for Me Hair Milk Collection

http://www.hairmall.ca/Up/detail_justforme.png

 

Although neither product/line is all‐new, Just For Me is really trying their best to double dip. With their Texture Softener, they’re shelling out kiddie perms under the guise of curl‐loosening and manageability. Their Hair Milk Collection is an attempt to cater to moms with natural hair kids, promoting ease of detangling and styling. The Hair Milk Collection includes a Nourishing Cream Cleanser, Shampoo, Conditioner, Nourishing Detangler, Curl Smoother, Smoothing Edge Creme, and Curl Perfecter. The line is definitely in the affordable range, with all products hovering around $6. But unfortunately, Just For Me is up to their old antics as far as products go — with many of the products from the Hair Milk Collection including mineral oil, silicones, and isopropyl alcohol rather high on their ingredient lists. This may not go over well for many natural moms who are looking to use healthier and less harmful products on their child’s hair.

Have you noticed the shift in relaxed products to natural hair care? Do you intend on trying out the new products targeted towards naturals?

This might make me shallow, but I do not care if a company is disingenuous. I don’t expect a company to be #teamnatural, I expect them to be #teammoney, and a smart business would cater to multiple types of hair, and I like smart businesses. If their products work, then great, they’ve got my vote and my money. If they are lackluster then I won’t use them and (hopefully) they’ll up the ante‐ even if it’s just to boost product sales.

Aadnois

Yep. I’m definitely in the minority, but I’ve never cared if a company was black owned, if they originally sold relaxers, any of that noise; if the product is within my budget range, and it works for me, I’ll buy it. It’s nice that there are so many companies that exclusively make products for natural, black women/men, by natural, black women/men, but we honestly can’t be surprised when other companies see us as profit, and change gears to market towards us.

I have received several products from these lines via CurlBox & CurlKit — one of the reasons I cancelled by subscriptions with both was they blatant takeover of whole boxes by these companies that have spent years shaming natural hair. Now I mainly use products from 2 smaller lines — As I Am Naturally — http://www.asiamnaturally.com/ (whose line is available in Sally Beauty Supply & is at the lower end $8-$14 price point) & Bee Mine Products — https://www.beemineproducts.com/ (a little pricier & only available online, but great products that my stylist turned me on to).

I always love getting products on the ground, but I often stay away from these companies because I don’t like the ingredients. I did like the Creme of Nature shampoo, but have since moved on to more natural formulas by indie brands. I haven’t tried the others — I usually read ingredients in the store then get fed up.

I see pros and cons out of this. I mean, at least the companies are noticing. I mean, if they really want to get their coins up you have to market towards a popular demographic. At the same time I am so unimpressed by a LOT of these product lines. I think one of my staples which is inter‐changable is by a previous relaxer brand (Beautiful Textures?) but other than that I regret spending whatever amount I did on a relaxer brand product because of all of the sh*tty ingredients in it. These brands need to step up their game… Read more »

It’s been a very long time since I’ve bought any products from a hair care company. I pretty much mix my own everything for my hair and body. But I remember Dark & Lovely dipping their toes into the natural hair world as early as 2006 when they had that Relaxed and Natural line. Convenience is nice as far as being able to go to a store, grab a bottle and use it as soon as you get home instead of having to mix potions, but I’m not one to pay other people to do the things that I’m able… Read more »

Thanks for sharing this. I’d started to be conscience about what I put on my body before I stopped relaxing (I know that was backwards, but those products worked better for my hair.) I saw these companies trying to tap into their lost market, which is what any company does, by offering the $10 price marked products. But what they haven’t done is listened to their consumer and sacrificed those cheap, filler chemicals that allow the regular products to be mass produced and sold at low price points. I’m not paying “the 5” for something that’s regularly sold for $5… Read more »

I think it’s time for a comprehensive list of Black owned natural hair companies. We have to support our own in this. There are way to many black owned businesses focusing on black hair to be giving it to others outside the community that hate us but want our money.

I can’t agree with you more, I was about too write a comment along that line…I’ll stick to Shea Moisture, Qhemet Biologics, and TGIN. I’ll support black owned business first and foremost if they continue to make good products at a reasonable price!!!

They will all have the similar light skinned model, with visible curls in advertising; they will claim that all products define or stretch curls, add shine and moisture and will all have coconut oil, maybe aloe and of course proteins.

Everything the natural hair community is obsessed with is being thrown right back at us so, not surprised.

Curious about lottabody. Their setting lotions are top‐notch and I want to see if their lines for natural hair can work just as great or even better.

Great article. I was just in Walmart last night, buying new products. They ran out of Shea Moisture, and I was considering trying something different for fun. I saw Dark and Lovely. Although they are clever with their advertising, product design, and marketing, I couldn’t help but cringe at what they were actually trying to convey about my natural hair. First, the claims of the entire Au Naturale Anti‐ Shrinkage line are problematic. I thought, “how is that even possible?” Anyone with natural hair knows that “shrinkage” is the definition of type 4 hair. Really, we should consider “shrinkage” the… Read more »

SPOILER ALERT: All companies want your money. All companies adjust their product offerings based on analysis consumer spending, focus groups, etc. Not sure why this is a bad thing. If anything, I can recall a time when naturals complained about the poor selection of products available. If we really want to complain about something, it should be the pricing of these new‐fangled lines. Most SheaMoisture products still retail for about $10 and the (original) products are 98% natural…with water topping the list at 75%, but whatever. The company is Black‐owned so I give them an A for effort. Even though… Read more »

My mom has always been natural although she straightens more than she wears its curly but I grew up with lotto body as a staple. It never worked on my 4aish hair the way it did her 3cish hair but I’m definitely interested in trying their new line to see if maybe I’ll get better results

*lotta body haha
and I have no interest in trying anything by a relaxer company because their products didn’t do anything for me when I straightened my hair so I doubt they’ll do anything I can’t find in a natural company thats already proven to be better. Aint nobody got money to waste on a maybe product.

Ever since I’ve started to use products marketed by Black entrepreneurs (Shea Moisture and Oyin Handmade are my personal favorites) my hair has been much more healthier.

Dark & Lovely makes me cringe. I’m tired of seeing ads on TV for their Anti‐reversion serum. I almost got tempted by natural hair products when they were on sale at Rite Aid.

I got my hair done by a natural hair “stylist” and she used Creme of Nature’s Argan Oil Leave‐in in my hair. To say the least, my hair hated it.

L’oreal and their ilk are out there being found guilty of racism in a court of law and whitewashing/rejecting the black female identity. All while pushing us to give them our hard earned money. We have to be just as conscious of who we give our money to as the products we put in our hair.

I don’t think we should be mad at them for trying to cater for naturals. Isn’t that what black women hope for? That they create products for everyone’s hair? Admittedly, I’m not a fan of them camouflaging ingredients such as mineral oil but if a relaxer company wants to branch out and make good products for naturals, this is great for us all! Besides, companies look to make profit(you can’t expect them not to) and some of us do not have access to the little brands you speak of.

You said “As far as having access to a computer,

I guess you missed the huge data breach at Target. People’s credit card information can be illegally obtained at big box retailers JUST like it can be obtained on line.

That’s a bit harsh. I tried the whole purchasing of natural hair brands and was hit with the biggest postage bill for it that I can’t justify buying anymore. $70 worth of product cost me $60 to post here to Australia. Tried the coconut oil route and that resulted in me ripping my hair apart. I am now back to using the products that I used when I relaxed my hair, at least I can get them here (even if there is something like a 75% mark‐up on the prices you pay in the States)!!

I see that some posters only want to purchase black‐owned products and that’s all good but some consumers might not have the access to these products or their non black‐owned product works just fine.

Yeah, I noticed. Those are usually in the same section as the Shea Moisture/Alikay/Talilah Wajid products at Target. The natural‐hair products from the relaxed‐hair companies are not nearly 100% nonsynthetic and most are owned by companies who do animal testing, so I’ll stick to companies like Kinky Curly, LUSH, and TW that sell 100% natural or nearly‐natural products.

Econ 101, folks…like someone said above, even the blackest of companies aren’t in business for their health. As someone who’s been natural for longer than a minute I get IMMENSE SATISFACTION from seeing these mainstream hair companies struggle for our dollars. Back in the days before blogs and YouTube, unless you were lucky enough to live within subway distance of Carol’s Daughter there was next to nothing on the ground that catered *specifically* to Afro‐textured natural hair AND contained ingredients that weren’t just cheap crap. So these folks lost me a LONG time ago…I was an early buyer of both… Read more »

I think it is important to support the black owned companies that were making natural hair products before it was popular. They are the ones that will care more about the ingredients that they put in their products. Unfortunately, these big brands jump on the bandwagon and because they have more money they are able to advertise etc,but they don’t have the best intentions. If the jheri curl comes back next month, they’ll move on to that.

k.hill

i would be willing to try the lottabody products. i have locs and always looking for ways to keep the curls in longer. i’m not upset at the companies for wanting to step into the natural hair market, it only shows that they are listening to their audience. they may get it wrong or make missteps at first, but they will refine and get better as they listen more. but always remember that for most major companies, the bottom line is profit so they follow the dollar. period.

I don’t know… I feel like they might add some unhealthy ingredients to their products because they’re so used to doing that with relaxers. Plus the name “Tension release hair wash” makes me think of relaxers, chemicals and curl loosening, for some reason. But that’s just my opinion.

Cynthia
Guest
Cynthia

I don’t get this article at all. Why the unnecessary criticism? The fact that I can go into a hair shop and now see more options for natural hair is great! The Creme of Nature Argan Oil line has some of my favourite products. So because a company once focused on relaxed products and now have moved in line with the latest demand of natural products, we must criticise? To me,there is no logic in that. Lets just celebrate the response of this hair movement.

The lottabody stuff looks interesting. I used to love their creamy setting lotion, gave the best braid/twistout definition but became hard to find. I’m all for big companies working hard for our $$, as stated in the past they barely cared or the ingredients left little to be desired. While I do support online vendors when I can, the thing I like about mainstream vendors is their formulations are consistent (most of the time), the products are easy to get and no long shipping times.

I embrace the big companies interest and I always try to give them a chance by checking out their product description and their ingredients. The problem I have is usually there is nothing “natural” in their ingredients or if it is, the natural ingredient is toward the end of the list indicating there is not much “natural” about their product. Usually it tends to be the same product they offer to relaxed customers with a little coconut oil or argan oil added toward the end.

The models that they have on these products do not appear to be natural, but women of color wearing a wig or weave. Mizani’s is more obvious than Dark & Lovely’s.

Business is business and I will support any product that has quality natural ingredients, does for my hair what it promises and fits in with my regimen.

I don’t think its a big deal. They are all companies who at the end of the day need to make a profit.
