Top 10 Controversial Hair Stories Of 2017

It’s that time of year when we like to take stock of all that has happened in the last 12 months. Even though individually we tend to prefer lighter topics with the classic happy ending, as a group there’s something about a controversy generally that attracts us the most. It’s human nature, after all, to want to support the underdog in any situation.

2017 was a quiet year for the most part, or maybe we just became immune to all the negative headlines that screamed at us from newsstands around the country but in the hair world, there were a few posts that stood out to us. So below we have listed, in no particular order, the top 8 controversial hair stories that we published this year.

About Alma Ruddock


I’m Alma Ruddock, the founder and editor-in-chief of Blackhairinformation.com. I stumbled on a hair care forum back in 2008 frustrated with my breaking relaxed hair and the information that I found there changed the fate of my hair, and quite possibly my life, forever! I immediately started to transition to natural hair and started BlackHairInformation.com as a way to help both myself and other women of color achieve their dreams of long healthy hair. I have now achieved my goal length and I continue to help others achieve their dreams too. My three passions are hair, art and entrepreneurship and I love to be able to bring my unique view on hair growth and successful hair journeys to our readers. I am an eternal optimist and workaholic. In addition to BHI I have founded quite a few other websites and businesses including Elongtress Hair Vitamins and Urban Gyal which all fall under the umbrella of my company Coils Media Ltd.
