Just when Carol’s Daughter products and the face of Solange Knowles were becoming seemingly inseparable, they divorce!
So why the split?
Solange explained her decision to part ways with the natural hair product line in an interview with Lurve Magazine. It was all about the message. “Throughout my entire time working with them, I was constantly fighting for the right message to be heard. The message that the way we wear our hair is a personal choice, there’s no right or wrong way.”
The natural hair icon also took a gentle stab at what she refers to as the “natural hair police” by adding, “One way doesn’t make us more intelligent, or more superficial, and everyone makes that choice for very different reasons.”
For some time, Solange faced criticism herself from the Natural Hair community being a natural hair icon since she was so newly “Natural” and not very experienced or knowledgeable of natural hair styling.
Maybe Carol’s Daughter put too much pressure on Solange to be the “natural hair police” she’d been critical of.
What do you think ladies?
