The Business Of Black Hair
African-American men and women spend billions of dollars on their hair, but U.S. beauty care companies are missing out.
Mintel values the black hair care industry at more than $2.5 billion, but that statistic doesn't include products such as hair accessories, wigs or electric styling products. So, the industry is actually worth much more.
Most hair care products purchased by African-Americans are imported from countries such as India and China, despite the U.S. having one of the most lucrative hair care markets in the world.» Subscribe to CNBC: http://cnb.cx/SubscribeCNBC
