I love a great post, once chalk full of controversy and education with a little bit of funny to hold me as I read. Lord knows we have a million things to look at so it takes alot to keep ones attention for longer than five minutes. Recently though something I read did just that, I literally was reading and watching the video in the post for close to an hour and I plan to share it with you right now.
Here on BHI we support our sisters and brothers in blogging, we follow hundreds of blogs and we sometimes repeat posts with information that needs to be highlighted so that our readers too can voice there opinions.
What I read was a post by Christina Patrice on the popular Blog Black Girl Long Hair, where she was talking about her experience at a Google Hangout hosted Ouidad and Ty Alexander. It was a whole hour of great information talking about frizz and how to manage it, it was expertly titled Frizz 101.
It was a great business move for Ouidad, as a matter of fact if you are in the business of selling and you aren’t interacting with your customers in a real way using tools like Google Hangout and other social media outlets, you are doing your business a great disservice.
At the end of the day we as consumers know that it is a hard sell for products but sometimes some really great relevant information is shared that we can take away with us and apply them to our lives, or in this case our hair regimens.
In watching the video here is where things started to unravel, during the discussion the stylist answered a question about Ouidad’s Shine Hair Glaze. The stylist described the product as an accessory, kind of like lipstick or earrings. Its that product that just adds value to the look of your style but not necessarily the health of your hair, of course she didn’t say that but that’s what I got out of it.
