.....Yeah, but if you have to take the risk in getting shot by a bunch of their homies, then a hair-do would be the LAST on the list for anyone. South FL...tuh!! It's a nice place to visit but you better carry a piece with you at all times. Oh about the hair salons, this is nice actually, super nice to hear. We need more businesses opened here in the states. I still don't support African American/"black" women (non-Dominicanas) giving their money to these shops though. Keep our money in our community.

I really like this article, I never realized that there was so many Dominican hair salons in Broward County.
I have a mixed culture, with kinky, hard to handle hair and have not been able to find anyone here that has been able to really handle my hair type. I used to have my hair done by Dominicans in my country in the Virgin Islands, so its refreshing to find someone that knows how to deal with my kind of hair.
However this article does not give the name and/or addresses of some of the salons mentioned. I need to find the one in Plantation.

You are an idiot. What the hell, does your hair getting done have to do with being shot. You can get shot by anyones homies of different cultures. Gangs are every where, do you really know anything about S.FL. Every where you go has touch neighborhoods.
And what do you mean that you don't support African American women support Dominicanas. Do you realize that alot of Dominicans are of African descent as well. If you are black it doesn't matter what part of the world you are from, your still black. Besides it doesn't matter, what matters is if they do good hair, then "big up" to them. Not every one what's to wear weave and have their hair burnt out. Incase you didn't realize the article was talking about how they use natural products to try and strengthen the hair, they care about their customers. That is what people care about, not what culture is.

I remember living in Union City NJ 84 to 99 it was great when I first moved there Italians, Cubans, Colombians, etc. but when Gulianni became mayor of NY he chased all ofthe Dominicans to NJ. Boy what a mess. I don't have any use for anyone from either side of that island. My best friends are Cuban and Colombian, but watch out for the Dominicans.

If you were white and said that, you would be in big trouble Sista. Don't worry about supporting other minorities. The white taxpayer does that.

"Black" is the color of a crayon, NOT a race or ethnicity.

I think you're a racist bitch. You don't know anything about us Dominicans, and I'm going to be the better person and not be racist about you and your people.

Im glad to see the Dominicans of Color opening their own bisnesses, what we need is more people of color making money and investing back into our neighboor hoods.

Ashley remember that alot of the Latin Americans are blacker than me or you. Carlton from the Fresh Prince is Dominican. Alot of cubans, Domincans and others are black too.

I dont see the point of Segregating Black folks on Location seeing how All of us are from Africa and have the same Ancestors. cultural differences yes but location no.

Interesting how after a few hundred years of fighting slavery, then segregation and finally discrimination the black community is segregating itself for us. Well I can't say it makes me unhappy....you stay in your part of the city and I'll stay in mine, ok?

Stop trying to throw us all into one pot. Hispanics are multiracial; we are not all from Africa. Our ethnic background includes white, Indian, black. In the USA only the black side of a biracial individual is given any attention; as if the white is nonexistent. Don't get me wrong, there is nothing wrong with being all African-American; however, I am proud of my diversified eithnic makeup, and I consider myself white.

As far as Dominican hair salons, right now they're the best in straightening hair of all types. However, I find they are not only ridicoulously expensive, but the women are rude, arogant, and give their friends (especially the Dominican customers) special treatment, and lower prices. Don't worry guys, it'll catch up with you very soon. The competition is fierce!!!

It is not that poster who is throwing you all into one pot. That would be your precious "WHITE" people who do that. AS an African American person, I can tell you the things they say about you are not nice. You claim them but they will NEVER claim you. Go get some dignity and self-respect!!

i have some questions. someone on the thread said that they (dominicans ) are white, why ar you straightening your hair??? how come i don't see baseball players like your brother Alex Rodriguez with any of you guys . these guys always seem to marry women who look like kate hudson or a salma hayek who does not need a straighten...PERM. a mind is a terrible thing to waste.
