All I could say was What? Who? and Why?
What the hell?
I was in the Goodwill store when I spotted this "Black Label" Barbie doll Model 04 with a short curly afro or TWA.
Who would make a baby doll without any hair to play with?
Don't little girls like playing with the Barbie dolls' hair?
Why was she in Goodwill all by herself with a $19.99 price tag?
I would have purchased her, but many Black women have a teeny weeny afro because it is easier to deal with, but if given a choice, the TWA is not a preferred option.
Any thoughts? Would you have purchased her?

This visual disturbed me. Anyone else has an opinion about hairstyling for the wedding cake toppers?
Of course, just choose some wedding bells or something neutral . . . but definitely not this one . . .
Well, between Sally's Beauty Supply, Target, and other Superstores like Beauty Brands and Ulta, salons will forever switch from one product line to the next because the larger chains can buy in bulk. Money always talks!
The Colorproof product line seems to be the latest exclusive line to get your hands on, and now, even that product line is much easier to find.
So stylists instead of chasing after new product lines, how about just switching up your presentation?
The Dollar Tree stores have 10 treat bags in a pack for $1.00 USD. Yes, for one US dollar, you can get treat bags that can hold one or two small products. Judging by the picture, even the taller bottles can fit. The bags are inexpensive and not recyclable but they serve their purpose.
You can also pick up a bundle of gift tissue paper at the Dollar Tree store for one dollar as well.
Believe it or not, people love Sephora and Victoria Secret for the bag and tissue paper. I was very disappointed when Sephora ran out of tissue paper for my bag last week for my birthday gift. My joy just was not the same without the full tissue bag look. LOL! Oh the simple things. LOL!
Anyway, I have started wrapping all retail purchases in tissue paper and putting them in a bag. My customers like the extra attention. The discount stores, grocery stores, drugstores, etc are not adding in the tissue paper at the time of purchase. Many people like presentation, and if given the choice, then these same people will buy from your salon because of the "extra presentation" versus just getting the same expensive product thrown in a regular recyclable plastic bag.
All the volume is mine produced from my new growth and curlied locs.
By the way, the Dollar Tree stores have chenille stems a.k.a pipe cleaners. So there is NO excuse not to find a way to curl your locs!
By the way, I am wearing my MAC PeachTwist blush powder color. I am sooo excited to find a secondary cheek color! Loving it!
My new longer length is starting to inspire me to consider more curls again. We shall see!
I can even sport the straight loc look which is the lowest maintenance loc styling ever!
