Do you know about The Proud Lady Symbol?
We may not always have easy access to a black owned beauty supply store or grocery store but that does not mean we can’t still find a way to contribute to our community. If you are an avid YouTuber like myself you are probably already aware of the popular black owned Natural haircare product lines….but what about the rest? Simply turn the product around and look for The Proud Lady symbol on the back of your favourite products such as Bronner Bros, Dudley (Black Female President woot woot!) Lusters, etc.
I hope that one day the Support a Sista logo will grow to serve as proud symbol and reminder for all of us as well!
The Proud Lady is the symbol of AHBAI (American Health and Beauty Aids Institute) member companies, which assures consumers that the product was manufactured by a Black owned company.
