Chaleeee when the government announced the Covid-19 lockdown procedures none of us expected this to impact our hair and beauty shops. I mean SURELY SURELY the hair and beauty shops should be classified as essential businesses! HEH! come and see wahala! As Black people it is unfair we are not offered the simplicity of getting our shampoos, moisturisers, creams and hair products from the supermarket. But as Black people, one thing we know how to do is pivot and shift to the times sweetie! Quarantine enabled us to seek and find Black owned beauty shops and brands and you know as for us here at the Fro Day HQ we are all about supporting Black owned businesses!!
This is part two of our original post on Black owned alternatives to Paks and Shabba this time we are highlighting black owned online hair and beauty stores.

My sistas, if there was ever a time to make the switch to black owned businesses and brands it is now oh. We must make sure we put our valuable money in the hands of the people that know about our own hair and skin.
