Negro Steel Wool, Say what? 14/06/24 at 5.17am / by Karen Halliburton / 0 Comment This Negro steel wool product is made by the German company, Oscar Weil. It is marketed Today! Not in 1914…2014! A woman found it when she was in Lebanon. And as she noted many Lebanonese don’t have the straightest of hair. Clearly, this is a racist stab at folks of African descent. You know, having kinky hair like steel wool. It’s so hard for us to love our hair, when the rest of the world keeps throwing out negative connotations of our uniquely beautiful hair.
