Cardi B Wants To Create Afro-Latina Hair Care Line


Cardi B has had to defend her Afro-Latina heritage on many occasions since she’s been in the limelight.


Ordinarily, she would clapback at the haters who would leave offensive comments about her hair. This time, Cardi is making a money move and using her latest encounter as an opportunity to educate folks about Afro-Latina Hair.


“This year I will be coming out with a haircare line,I think [it is] time for people to educate themselves on nationality, race and ethnicity.” Cardi said


Cardi often gets a lot of haters on social media, telling her that she isn’t Black. They criticize her use of the N-word in much of her songs.


She’s posted pictures of her grandparents, and other darkskin members of her family. She’s also shared several pictures of her hair in its natural state, which can be described as a kinky Afro.


“People [are] thinking every Hispanic is Mexican or something and must have the same hair texture, colour and features.” She continued “Being Hispanic/Latina don’t make your hair long, don’t make your skin light [and] don’t make your face features slim especially [if you come from] Latin countries from the Caribbean islands … DNA has something to do with your hair not your nationality.”


Cardi says that this hair care line is something that she had been working on for herself and for her daughter's hair.


The rapper isn’t new to sharing hair care tips online for her fans. Last year, her hair Mask went viral and sparked a lot of conversation on social media. The mask was a mixture of avocado, argan oil, mayonnaise, black castor oil, olive oil, two eggs, honey and banana.


In 2020, Latino consumers under 35 spent $663m on beauty products, with haircare, hair colour and nails dominating, according to Nielsen.
