American rapper Cardi B is set to launch her own haircare line in an attempt to educate people about ‘Afro-Latina hair.

The Up singer says she was inspired to indulge in this project after receiving offensive comments on social media after posting a video about her natural hair.

Cardi B says the haircare line is something she had been working on for herself and her daughter and this is what she wrote on Instagram:

“This year I will be coming out with a haircare line,” The post read. “I think [it is] time for people to educate themselves on nationality, race and ethnicity.”

The post further read: “People [are] thinking every Hispanic is Mexican or something and must have the same hair texture, colour and features.

“Being Hispanic/Latina don’t make your hair long, don’t make your skin light [and] don’t make your face features slim especially [if you come from] Latin countries from the Caribbean islands … DNA has something to do with your hair not your nationality.”

According to the rapper, she started developing her hairline products during lockdown after the pandemic hit the world.
