After being dragged by fans on social media last week for saying her son wasn’t “blessed” with her good hair, Ne-Yo’s wife Crystal Renay has announced plans to launch a new hair care line for mixed kids.

“Thank you guys for the negativity, because once again I’m going to channel it into something positive and I am now in the process of creating a hair care line for mixed children…so thank you once again,” she said in an Instagram post.

As previously reported, Crystal took to Instagram earlier this month with a request for help because her son wasn’t “blessed” with “Mommy’s ‘Hawaiian Silky’” hair texture.

Her comment section lit up with folks criticizing her for even making the distinction, which draws on the age old good hair/bad hair issue that has divided the African American community for decades.
