Uh...I actually kind of like the segregation. There are a few stores in my area that mix products and it takes so much longer sorting through all the -cones, sulfates, etc. If we don't call it ethnic can we call it the curly section?
And yes I am aware that there are "ethnic" brands with non CG products, but there aren't that many of them compared to mainstream brands.
I would argue that there is "ethnic" hair. It's silly/incorrect that they use the word ethnic to refer to specific ethnicities, but we know they mean 3b-4c hair. Let's be honest, there are only a handful of white people with tightly coily hair (3c+). The majority of people with tightly coily hair are people of color.
