Infographic for our hair care survey results

Story to tell in the infographic
We are looking for something that we can include in our giveaways and mailings along with our books. We want to create a handy sheet of information that is so beautiful and educational that users simply refuse to throw away! Added More details! The graphic is geared toward women of color. Who are Natural: Their hair IS NOT chemically straightened (it's curly, puffy, coily, kinky) OR Relaxed: Their hair IS chemically straightened with very harmful chemicals (a relaxer). (Straight hair) Our company encourages women to express themselves naturally, although we recognize that being "relaxed or natural" is a personal choice. Here's more info on some of the points. Hope this helps! 2.) Of the relaxed women polled in our super survey, nearly 70% said that they always stretched out their relaxer applications. Another 20% said that they sometimes stretch their relaxers. ("Stretching" means that they don't do the chemical treatments very often. They space them out over time) 3.) Chemical relaxers are formulated at pH ranges that are often one million times more alkaline than hair at its resting pH. (The pH scale goes from 0-14. Hair is a ph4 and chemical relaxer products are a 10-14 on the scale. The scale is logarithmic so just one step up = 10x greater) 5.) Of the natural women polled in our super survey, nearly 36% said they did a Big Chop with no transition at all. (A big chop means the woman cut off all of her hair right away to start over fresh with her natural hair. A "transition" means they slowly grew out their natural hair first, then chopped it when they were ready) 9.) 27% of our super survey respondents NEVER use heat styling tools on their natural hair. (Never use blowdryers, curling irons/flat irons, etc)
Data to include in the infographic
We would like the infographic to include the following details from our survey: 1.) Just under 40% of black women wear our hair in its natural state. (The other 60% wear their hair chemically straightened.) 2.) Of the relaxed women polled in our super survey, nearly 70% said that they always stretched out their relaxer applications. Another 20% said that they sometimes stretch their relaxers. 3.) Chemical relaxers are formulated at pH ranges that are often one million times more alkaline than hair at its resting pH. 4.) Age of first relaxer? Our relaxed group of respondents overwhelmingly selected 13 to 18 years old as their top choice for first relaxers. Transitioners—and naturals, to an even greater extent—were more likely to agree that chemical relaxing should be a choice made in adulthood—by the individual herself, not a parent. 5.) Of the natural women polled in our super survey, nearly 36% said they did a Big Chop with no transition at all. 6.) When we asked naturals and transitioners about who had been the most supportive of their hair journeys, one group of people reigned supreme. Their natural-haired friends (80%). Family (73%) and relaxed friends (61%) were a close second and third. The least supportive group? Their hair stylists. (35%) 7.) The average transitioning time for naturals in our hair survey was 4 to 9 months. 8.) The majority of women we polled in our hair survey (80%) voted that they would continue on with their transition even if a spouse/partner or significant other disapproved. 9.) We asked our survey participants, “Which product brands do you consider to be “go-to” brands? Here’s what they told us! a. SheaMoisture 45% b. Homemade Products 29% c. ECOSTYLER 24%, Kinky Curly 24%, and Tressemme 24% 9.) 27% of our super survey respondents NEVER use heat styling tools on their natural hair. 10.) Compared to movements of the past, today's natural hair renaissance. a.) Is more education-focused.Today’s movement is rooted in education. In fact, what we suffer from these days is information overload and having to sift through a huge store of experiences and opinions. b.) Wired. Natural hair journeys these days are taking place amidst a whirlwind of technological activity. c.) Has More Product Offerings.There is no shortage of hair-care products for naturalistas these days. Our hair salons and cosmetology schools are working overtime to adapt to the needs of a changing clientele, while product manufacturers scramble to reengineer, repackage and create hair products to support the natural-hair renaissance. d.) Lots of new entrepreneurs born! We can’t forget about the entrepreneurship and economic opportunities this movement has made available to just about any woman with a computer or a camera who is willing to share her thoughts.
Elements to include in the infographic
We would like many different graphs to visualize the numbers. Pies, bar charts, we are open to them all. We are also looking for lots of color and character. We are looking for an infographic that shows a diversity of brown color in the people shown-- and of course, they should have kinky-curly afro textured hair when possible.
Every design category has flexible pricing for all budgets. Infographic starts at $599.
