    I see more sisters going natural and not going to the salons as much (myself included) much less expense, chemicals, and time…

    I just wanted to inform your readers of this very important fact – Madame C.J. Walker’s historic company still exists today and has never stopped manufacturing all of the original hair oils! Please visit our website at http://www.madamewalker.net to view and purchase the full product line. The website also contains valuable information about Raymond Randolph’s purchase of the original Madame C.J. Walker Manufacturing Company in 1985 from the Walker Trustees in Indianapolis, Indiana and how his family continues to keep Madame Walker’s “true” legacy alive.

    Thanks very much for posting this “Hair Wars” discussion for sharing information about Madam Walker’s role in the history of American hair care. I hope you and your readers will have a chance to rvisit our website at http://www.madamcjwalker.com and to read my book, On Her Own Ground: The Life and Times of Madam C. J. Walker, which is based on three decades of scholarly research, personal family letters, business correspondence and interviews with Madam Walker’s closest employees and family members. As Madam Walker’s great-great-granddaughter and biographer, it’s been my joy to help others learn more about her and to have been selected by the Walker family to use my training as a professional journalist to tell the story of Madam Walker’s journey. Today our family focuses on our work with the Madam Walker Theatre Center, a cultural arts organization and National Historic Landmark in Indianapolis (www.walkertheatre.com). We also celebrate the exciting new generation of entrepreneurs who tell us how inspired they are by Walker’s legacy. Through books, articles, museum exhibits, lectures and business school case studies, we take great pride in telling the story of five generations of accomplished women in our family and in sharing original Walker documents, personal family letters, photographs and business records from our extensive Walker Family Archives.

    I have always noticed that hairstyles are a great indicator of what is really going on in the economy and is more accurate than pundits and pollsters. I am glad someone else noticed too! Natural or not, in a bad economy there are more do it yourself styles and styles that cost less or last longer as well as home perms and the like. I am glad someone is talking about this, I find it very interesting.
