Carol's Daughter sold

French cosmetics and beauty company L’Oreal USA announced today it was purchasing ethnic hair and beauty line Carol’s Daughter.

“Carol’s Daughter possesses an expertise in the multi-cultural consumer segment, a rapidly expanding market that represents an important growth opportunity in the beauty industry,” said Frederic Roze, president and CEO of L’Oreal USA in a statement. “This acquisition will enable L’Oreal USA to build a new dedicated multi-cultural beauty division as part of our Consumer Products business, and strengthen the company’s position in this dynamic market.”

Carol’s Daughter was started in 1993 by Lisa Price. The company grew in popularity through celebrity endorsements and word of mouth.

But Price was forced to close five stores in New York and Atlanta after Carol’s Daughter fell out of favor with its black supporters who believed the company was losing touch with its core constituents.

The brand filed for bankruptcy in May.

    Great move, I already love L’Oreal’s products. I wonder how much she sold it for?

  • http://thegameonbetblog.tumblr.com/ Bird

    How much was it sold for? Hopefully Loreal can afford to lower the price point because it was too expensive.

  • Crimsontide

    I don’t know how i feel about this. I don’t think we consider the long-term ramifications when we sell our companies to “others”. We usually don’t come from much, so as soon as they flash that check in our faces, we gladly sign on the dotted line. If we’re going to sell our companies, I think we should look to keeping it in the family or community. Too many of us are doing this and the after effects aren’t pretty (i.e. BET, Famous Amos, etc).

    Hate to sound like a conspiracy theorists ranting about “The Man”, but they don’t want us having anything, especially positive, so they come to us with their check book in hand ready to buy us out…. *end rant*

    Zoe wt do u do with ur hair? Im bout sick of these ponytails and when i got my hair flat ironed it was too stringy. Im at a complete loss on wt to do with it.

  • MisUnderstood

    @UF, you have to do it like me. Spray moisture at night, braid it up all cookieeyed, unbraid in morning throw a flower in it & go. IDC what it looks like sometimes, but it’s bra length now. :shrug:

  • https://www.etsy.com/shop/AMarieNaturals lovezoe

    UF- my hair still only bout nape length. For the most, I twist at night, untwist in morning. Wash 2x a week. Well co-wash. Deep condition 1x. Go to YT, type in your type of hair plus styles, so much comes up. I made my own wig, so I just do the Celie braids and throw my wig on. Days I wish I could relax.

  • MisUnderstood

    @loveZoe there’s no resting days with natural hair. It’s high maintenance & I went natural so I can have easy days. Takes 2 hours to dry under dryer!

  • sassyshe

    Theres a reason why African American hair products dont have financial success cause their price points are too expensive and they dont do what they so call claim to do. Their yt counterparts sell theirs for cheaper and do the job just as well or better. Garnier Fructice works wayyyy good for me and it only costs 3.99 for their curl products. Motions has a curl line that I do love and its only 5.99 for the items. The only black line that seems to be work really good is Aunt Jasmine, that I dont mind paying much for cause the quantity is worth it

    **************************

    i dunno crimson. owning and sustaining a business takes a lot out of you. many black folks like the dollars but, over time, not the work (or they don’t have anybody in the fam to turn it over to). over the years, if you lose, or don’t have that passion, you’re done. she had a great concept and that’s basically what she got paid for. when everybody else entered the “natural care” market, consumers (especially black folk) tried their cheaper products. she didn’t lower her price in response and the product didn’t garner any loyalty cause folks said the shyt doesn’t work. i’m one of those folks who don’t just buy cause it’s a black. i try cause it’s black but i buy when it works for me. there are some white products that are well-known for working great on black hair. a lot of folks paid more for black brands and abandoned those white products. i’ve tried shea, as i am, hair rules, and miss jessies. CD was waaayyy to expensive. like i said, i’m back to the old ways and my toddler’s hair is thriving.

    I should be good though by 11 am.
    Anyways on topic quickly:
    I used CD when I first started transitioning. It was cool. Loved it. Over the course of 1-2 years I found kt became ineffective heavy and mainly just scent oriented. I had to buy like 5 products just to look ok. Moved on and tried She Moisture :stop: tried my hair out. Then discoveres Design Essentials. Worked great :yes: But that’s not really for natural hair styles. So when I started trying natural styles out I would but Argon oil and spray plus Organix shampoo and conditioner from Wally World plus Eco Olive Oil Gel. Now I do that for natural styles and EXCLUSIVELY use It’s A 10 hair products. You can find it at Target. It is pricey. Don’t come for me of you look it up :lol:
    I use their argon oil dry spray, leave in conditioner and deep condition mask. I :heart: Leaves my hair light, airy, shiny and healthy.

    @boot camp,

    I can speak for myself, so take my perspective with a caveat, mkay? :rofl:

    I have 4b to 4c hair, and it’s very coarse/thick…for example……it takes 2.5 – 3 hours for me to warm comb my hair. When using qhemet, it helps to moisturize and keep my hair soft, which I like. The cocoa detangling creme does what it says it will do and can be used as a leave in on my hair. The amla oil heavy cream i use as a sealant after i put in a lightdr oil for moisture. The aethiopica (spelling?) is good as a soft pommade, but for me works better for twistouts in my hair but not to lay my edges down because it’s not heavy enough. Just an fyi

    San ah make ya dance says:

    “Shea Moisture” brand can be found Walgreens for sure (they always have it buy 1 get 1 50% off) and some other pharmacy chain. The coconut & hibiscus line is great for thick hair, IMO.

    @User,

    Yes ma’am……my hair has MAJOR shrinkage and I don’t blow dry it……so air deying it gives it a chance to shrink even more. I have to section it in small pieces so my hair will lay flat once i have passed over that section.

    @MisTake – Rhere have been holes and nails in it….and places that were bare……or something or other :rofl:

    @Boot Camp,

    For breakage, for me what worked is Aphogee…i used the intense protein treatment….it. costs about $20 dollars at Sally’s, but lasts a long time because you only use it once every 6-8 weeks.

  • Bootcampgirl

    @Unshake, I used to use that, it does last a long time, a little goes a long way. You ever tried a black tea rinse?

  • Unshakable

    @BootCamp,

    No babe…..educate me please :kiss:

    Several students are at home, suspended from Bolton High School after an alleged prostitution incident.

    Students and parents called it prostitution on campus during school hours on Monday, but Shelby County Schools says that may not be entirely accurate.

    SCS officials say administrators are in the early stages of an investigation into what they are calling “allegations of inappropriate behavior.”

    A Bolton High student, whose identity WMC Action News 5 is protecting, says notes and just passing the word around is how a 14-year-old, ninth grade Bolton student let male students know she would be offering sex. He said it usually happened during lunch in the boys’ bathroom.

    The student said sometimes she charged for the sex and sometimes she didn’t. He says he didn’t take her up on her offer, but she didn’t seem upset about it.

    “There was like a line 10 people almost everyday,” he said. “She just turning around at me in class always smiling at me … There’s something wrong with her, and I hate it.”

    The student said it started at the beginning of the year. Teachers didn’t seem to be aware he says.

    Deborah Clubb head of the Memphis Area Women’s Council says the girl’s behavior is an indication of a serious problem maybe even abuse.
    Last month, Bolton High made headlines when a grand jury indicted a teacher and coach for statutory rape.

    “I’m very disappointed,” recent Bolton High graduate Wezley Kearney said. “It was nothing like that. Nobody did anything like that. It was just like regular high school.”

    Kearney says bathroom deals were never on the curriculum at his alma mater.

    Dorothy Sanders says her children came home and told her about what was going on.

    “Bolton needs to crack down on this because this is not even normal,” Sanders said. “I don’t want my kids coming home telling me about this.”

    SCS says more suspensions are possible. Administrative and counseling teams are still interviewing students as part of the investigation.

    L’Oreal got this for pennies on the dollar I bet. CD was going thru Bankruptcy restructuring last I remember, so that weakened their position. She’ll probably get a low six figures and a job at L’Oreal at best.

    I’m not mad at her for doing what she feels is good for her and her brand, but really why are “we” always selling off our stuff to others…now they will probably make billions…this is sad…
