Coming Soon: Small Business Spotlight

Whew!!! This Spring is shaping up to be a BUSY one for me. The Spring Forward Hair Growth Challenge has launched, Wellness Wednesdays are in full effect, I'm working on a few giveaways (yay), and still churning out content for Black Girl with Long Hair and here on the blog.
Even with all that going on, I couldn't pass up an opportunity to bring one more segment on to the blog: Small Business Spotlight! Small Business Spotlight was born out of two things that organically converged. One, I have been receiving e-mails from launching and small natural hair businesses interested in product reviews and being featured on The Mane Objective. Two, after my most recent article on BGLH about relaxer companies going natural, many of the ladies were turned off by the blatant attempts of money-hungry companies to win back customers to improve their bottom line. The natural alternative: supporting small and/or Black-owned natural hair businesses and affiliates.
Either way it goes, I am on board 137%. Small businesses tend to have superior product quality, ingredient integrity, and great customer service. Besides, the bottom line is our dollar has influence. Why not use it to support businesses that share our values, and express a genuine interest in our needs?

If you are a small business owner and you are interested in having your natural hair product, accessories/jewelry, clothing, art, or other line featured on The Mane Objective, e-mail and include "Small Business Spotlight" in the subject line.

I am sooooo looking forward to all the great businesses and individuals that will be featured!
