Natural Hair News - Mixed Chicks Product Line Wins Lawsuit
I've often wondered whatever happened with Mixed Chicks suing Sally's Beauty Supply for infringement on their trademark. Here's more on that: Mixed Chicks Haircare Line Sues Sally Beauty Supply. Well, apparently that was all taken care of and Mixed Chicks came out the winner.
As you can see these savvy businesswomen weren't playing and I really can't blame them either. There are too many major corporations trying to bank off of the Natural hair movement. They have the money to slap a label on a product that looks like a big natural hair player in the game to confuse the consumers (black woman). I've written an article about this recently: Natural Hair News: Is there a threat of generic brands?
Say what you want but this will be happening more and more and MAYBE this lawsuit win will slow down the process. I'm a big believer that black women spend more money on their hair than women of other races and feel that we rarely reap those monetary rewards. Nothing against Sally Beauty Supply but if we don't stand up for ourselves as well as back these black owned brands we may see this continue. The Natural hair movement has brought the money back into our hands and the community and this blogger wants it to stay that way.
I've heard on Facebook Sally's repackaged the product and have a new name but don't know for sure. I'll be taking a trip to Sally's to check it out.
