SOULTRAINFANS: Johnson Products "Classy Curl" Advertisments

Black hair care advertising has change very little since the 80's or the 1920's for that matter. It's all about long, strong classy-ass hair. I'm so guilty of this folly. Dammit, I herby pledge to do something new! They use the same language, the same type of imagery and are still devoid of concepts. Oh yeah the still refuse to budget for real music.
These were taken from airings of Soul Train. All of them ran from 1980 to 1986.
