History of Black Pound Day
It is that time again when Black Pound Day is right around the corner and if you are a fervent Black Lives Matter Movement support, on this special day you can do a whole lot of good for the Black Community by just simply shopping more at Black owned businesses! So, whether you’re into fashion or hair products this is a perfect day to show your patronage for some black own fashion sores/ designs, Black owned haircare brands, and the list of course continues. However, before we go any further, what exactly is Black Pound day? You might ask. Well for those of us who don’t know, let’s dive into a bit of history!
This is a campaign that was conceived on the 27th of June 2020 by Swiss (formerly of So Solid Crew fame) following the debut of the world renowned and supported Black Lives Matter Movement. Just as its aforementioned predecessor in the fight for equity for the Black community, Black Pound Day is more than simply a one-off event, but rather a movement that is to be recognized on the first Saturday of every month. The reason behind its inception is to encourage consumers to switch up their usual shopping destinations to local and online Black-owned businesses in an effort to meaningfully alter the UK’s shopping habits to become more inclusive and, in turn, grow the Black economy and Black communities.
With the numerous Black owned brands and businesses that are out there such as Loudbrandstudios for fashion and SuperFoodLx with its very own black owned haircare brand, just to name a few, it has never been easier to support black owned businesses, especially on this day! Consequently, on this day or any other, you are more than welcome to head over to our website @superfoodlx.com to support and show your patronage of our black owned haircare brands because why not. And if you believe that this may not apply to you don’t worry as we cater for all races, genders, ages and conditions.
Reasons to support Black brands on Black Pound Day
Are you an avid supporter of the Black Lives Matter Movement but don’t actually know how you can assist the Black community? Well no need to feel helpless any longer as Black Pound Day gives you the perfect opportunity to give your exclusive patronage to Black owned businesses and brands be it fashion or black owned hair care brands. Never would anyone imagine that such a rudimentary and superficial past time could provide such great deal of support to the Black community and yet it could be exactly what is needed to help the Community be better repositioned. Further in this article we will discover exactly how this is and why it’s important to support Black brands on Black Pound Day.
Although more and more people, albeit slowly, are becoming aware of the injustices and systemic racism that still exist and persist against the Black Community today, to hear that Black owned businesses and brands are far less patronised than that of their White counterparts is no news, especially since many of these privileges such as land, the right to reside in certain communities, and the right to work certain jobs, just to name a few, weren’t awarded to the Black Community until just a few years ago. However, one way to help this disenfranchised group is with your money. And no, I don’t mean just giving away your hard earn cash to some random black person on the street, I mean through your consciously supporting more black owned businesses and brands on Black Pound Day and even after! We all know that Money is power, so consciously choosing to contribute your income to Black-owned businesses can raise up Black communities, shifts the balance of power and significantly alters our cultural landscape. According to the Black Pound Day website, if everyone were to spend just £10 a week on Black businesses, we could inject £1.9bn into the Black community. So, if you really want to affect change it’s time to put your money where your mouth is (and nab an epic outfit at the same time).
Provided that I’m a business owner who produces and supplies black owned hair care brands, I kindly invite you to take a look at my products @superfoodlx.com and show your generous patronage. And don’t worry, even though this is a black owned haircare brand, that doesn’t mean that we only cater for Black people, we cater for all races, gender, ages and sizes.
Black British Hair Brands to support on Black Pound Day
Though this article will be focusing primarily on some Black owned hair care businesses and brands that you could support on Black Pound Day, this doesn’t mean that article is geared primarily toward females or the Black Community. As long as you have hair you are welcomed to be here ! Who knows maybe you have hair growth/ loss issues and all you need are just some products with hair growth oil or vitamins for hair growth and, here, you will find out just where you can find them!
Before we get into the meat of the matter, let us first explore why it is very important to have and maintain a proper haircare routine. Hair care is a very important and a hygienic routine for not only women but also men. No one wants to go out with a dry, frizzy, and unhealthy-looking hair. By just simply washing your hair doesn’t necessarily guarantee that your hair will be of good quality. Hair care also involves proper grooming and making sure you are using the right hair care products with the right amount of hair growth oil and Vitamins for hair growth. “Hair health is a reflection of how healthy or unhealthy your life is. Genetic pre-disposition may cause harmful effects, but healthy living may prevent adverse conditions like alopecia. Taking care of your hair is as important as any other part of the body. While you tend to cover other body parts your hair is subjected to a lot of pollution, dirt and chemicals.” (American Beauty College 2020).
Now that we’ve looked at one of the the importance of having a good haircare routine and that it surpasses just merely washing your hair with water and soap, let’s explore a list of British haircare brands that you can use and especially some black owned ones to support on Black Pound Day and beyond.
- Beauty Stack
- Liha Beauty
- The Afro Hair & Skin Company
- Plant Apothecary Beauty
- Dizziak London
- Essentials by Temi
I’m quite certain that the nine businesses listed above have great online haircare products, however, since I’m the owner for the SuperFoodlx, I am better able to talk to you about the quality of products we offer. SuperFoodlx offers a wide rage of products for persons of all races, ages, gender, and conditions. However, don’t just take it from me, here are a few testimonials from customers who have tried our Hair Skin and Nail Oil product with hair growth oil and vitamin for hair growth.
“This hair oil is a total game changer. I have really course, dry, dyed blonde curly hair and find it difficult to keep on top of its condition. I have always been open to trying different products because I have never found something that keeps the curls defined, manages frizz and keeps it in good condition. I was lucky enough to be able to try the oil before I bought it, I was with a friend at the time who said she could see an immediate difference in the appearance of my hair. I bought two bottles as advised because my hair was so dry. The first time I used it, I drenched my hair in the oil and slept in it overnight. This was approximately a month ago now and I have not needed to do this treatment again. My hair is still so soft, shiny, and healthy. I use about 5 drops on my hair every day when its dry. I have a bottle I leave on my desk at work and use it throughout the day too. I appreciate that not everyone would need to use it as intensively as I do, but the pipette allows you to use as much or as little as you like.” Jessica Christie
And this is just one product of the many that we offer and for treating varying conditions. So, if my products interest you are more than welcomed to take a look at the haircare products that we offer on Black Pound Day and beyond!
