Top 50 Ethnic Hair Products Of 2013

In 1906, the great statistician Francis Galton observed a competition to guess the weight of an ox at a country fair. Eight hundred people entered. Galton, being the kind of man he was, ran statistical tests on the numbers. He discovered that the average guess (1,197lb) was extremely close to the actual weight (1,198lb) of the ox. This story was told by James Surowiecki, in his entertaining book The Wisdom of Crowds.

I have always been a firm believer that there is in fact a lot of wisdom in crowds. Somehow as a group, we collectively come to the right conclusion and it’s no different with hair regimens and hair products.

Perhaps if a patient soul analyzed and deduced an average of what all the blogs, magazines and vlogs say about healthy hair regimens, they may just be able to create the perfect regimen.

When it comes to hair products, it would not make sense to purchase every single product that every hair guru swears by, so where are you to start in your quest for you staple product stash?

The best solution of course is to follow the wisdom of crowds and use popular products as pointers on what to try.

So without further ado, here are the top 50 most purchased ethnic hair products of 2013 (stats combined from products purchased via BHI at & Sallys Beauty own stats).

About Alma

Hi! I'm Alma Ruddock, a full time blogger. I stumbled on a hair care forum in 2008 frustrated with my breaking relaxed hair and the information that I found there changed the fate of my hair forever!. I started as a way to help both myself and other women of color achieve their dreams of long healthy hair. I have now achieved my goal length and I continue to bring new information about hair on both this website and my personal blog.

    • You can braid your hair, box braids, twist, kinky twist, you can also do weave ons, full head weave, or you can wear a wig, but.plait your hair under and still moisturise it. Those are a few hairstyles you can do.

      There’s a ton of natural hair videos on YouTube and there’s product reviews all over cyberspace. The most basic thing you can do for now is to moisturize and seal your hair every night. Get to know your hair. If you take care of your hair, it will reward you with a glorious mane.
