Hotel Shampoo is Racist Now?

I don’t know about you, but I never pay attention to the samples of hotel shampoo and conditioner. I travel all the time and bring my own from home because I like the brands I use best.

Apparently pop singer Halsey doesn’t do the same and over the weekend, accused hotel chains of being racist because they don’t provide hair products for African American people. She says chains should be more inclusive and sensitive to other hair types and that they cater to white people with the products they stock in their rooms.

When someone suggested she bring her own, she replied she might be in a position to do so but others financially can’t afford it. I find that REALLY hard to believe. Has she priced travel size products lately? Because normally it’s under $1 or to save even more money, just buy reusable travel size containers you can re-fill with your products you have at home. It’s not that big of a deal.

People weren’t especially supportive of the singer, saying it was a non-issue and hotel shampoo is terrible for all hair types, not just African Americans.

I couldn’t agree with this person more.
