In spite of their adventurous advertising, I still love Tresemme conditioners. Shortly after seeing that TV advert and the commencement of my own hair journey, BlackHairInformation.com was born and the rest is history. You see, even after being taken in by their now proven false advertising, they have still kept me as a customer all these years. Makes you think doesn’t it?
The cosmetic industry is by no means the worst. I mean majority of you reading this probably believe that dairy is the best dietary source of calcium when almonds, collard greens and spinach among others contain way more calcium than milk could ever hope to. But clever advertising from the milk board (Got Milk?) complete with celebrities and milk mustaches would have you believe that your bones would snap without your daily glass of milky goodness!
The Best Hair Products Ever Invented
There is definitely a gap in the market for hair products that promise to do certain things to our hair and deliver on those promises. I have taken the liberty of compiling such a list from the perspective of a kinky* curly mane owner.
1. A product that can soften very coarse hair to baby soft and keep it that way indefinitely.
2. A product that can genuinely strengthen hair and make the strands resistant to breakage unless you are trying to cut the hair purposely.
3. A product that can relax curl pattern to super straight without the use of chemicals or heat and return hair to it’s original state when the product is removed from the hair.
4. A product that can provide blinding shine even to very kinky* hair in it’s natural state.
5. A product that can reduce porosity of hair negating the need for daily moisturization.
6. All products must be natural, not naturally derived just NATURAL plain and simple.
7. This is the most important: A product that can allow you to retain every inch without changing a thing in your hair regimen.
If you know of a product that fulfills this criteria, please let me know.
There are literally hundreds of hair product brands out there and they all feel that they have to do something to make themselves heard above the noise. Usually this comes in the form of creative advertising. Yet no industry will ever admit to downright false advertising preferring to say that their claims are always ‘representational’ of the product’s abilities. You can find more examples of misleading advertising here.
As of writing this, there are no products that will make your hair 10x stronger. The search goes on . . .
