A 30-year-old white woman with curly hair goes to a black salon that uses hair products intended for black people. While having dinner with friends, she mentions it and one of her friends calls her out for cultural appropriation. She doesn't know if she's in the wrong or not, but she doesn't want to go back to the salons that have previously butchered her hair. What do you think? Is she the a**hole for going to a salon that specializes in black haircare?

White woman faces backlash for using products for black hair

A 30-year-old white woman has been criticized for visiting a salon specializing in black hair care. The woman, who has 3c curly brown hair, was introduced to the salon by her black best friend who helped her properly care for her hair. However, after mentioning it to coworkers, one woman accused her of cultural appropriation. This led the woman to question whether she was in the wrong and whether she should stop visiting the salon. The incident highlights the ongoing debate around cultural appropriation and who has the right to use products and services intended for specific cultural groups. While some argue that it is inappropriate for white people to take advantage of black hair products and services, others argue that access to these products and services should not be restricted based on race. The comments and reactions to this woman's experience reflect the complexity of this issue and the need for continued discussion and education around cultural appropriation.

NTA with 4c hair. Black vs white issue if beauty industry recognized all types of hair.
