I'm so happy to have found this forum and this topic. I think we should sue, via a class action suit, the crap out of the many product lines who tell us we have 'damaged' hair - and who, in my opinion, are much to blame for all the hassle I get in public over my kinky curls!! Especially young 'uns these days act as if I'm deviant because of this hair, or worse, as if there is some imperative to spend ridiculous time and money trying to 'tame' it (which just can't be done in my experience, or not to their straight standards at least). I am sick and tired of being fair game on the street AS IF my hair is anyone else's business!!!!
