Natural Hair Product Capitalism

I’m trying not to make this a rant so forgive me if it slowly turns into one.

Have you all noticed that all these hair companies are now trying to cash in and cater to the natural hair community?  I feel a certain type of way about it. Where were you guys at when I really needed you? I needed products back in like 2003. I use to stroll up and down the hair aisle for hours reading labels and hunting for products. I used to settle on mousses, gels, curl activators, oh and Hawaiian silky. (Who used to use Hawaiian Silky?) Some examples of major hair companies that have started marketing to the naturals are Dr. Miracles, Dark & Lovely, Soft sheen-Carson, Motions, QP Elasta, and even Pro-style. I have not purchased any of those brands for natural hair care because I feel like they are just doing it for the money. Do they genuinely care about the well being of your curls?  Was there any real care or effort in creating these products? What if they are the same products for the relaxed ladies but just repackaged and put on the shelf for a higher price?
