Finding products and hairdressers in Germany to care for African American hair isn’t easy, as Annabelle Baptista-Baumann finds out. African American hair is not the simplest to deal with. To be blunt, I’ve had trouble with my hair myself. It’s thick and I can’t conceive of anything short of superglue that will hold it down; and I’ve experimented with every product in the German DM (the equivalent of a Walgreen’s in the US).
I’ve recently discovered African shops in Heidelberg and Mannheim, which carry black hair care products, which sadly are not carried by any of the large German chains.
