$350 for a relaxer for Caucasian hair only?


I’ve been looking for a salon that offers discount services on their training nights and I came across Haime Munoz’s salon on 74th Street.  He offers a relaxing process for Caucasian hair only.:

Relaxing treatment, $350 and up; conditioning treatment, $60 and up; cuts, $110
146 E. 74th St.
Magazine editors and Upper East Siders flock to Muñoz for his relaxing process (for Caucasian hair only), a custom-made, silicone-and-oil-based formula that doesn’t damage hair like lye treatments do and can last up to a year. But the Colombian-born Muñoz, a veteran of fashion shows and daytime TV (The Guiding Light), has a way with scissors, too. Now in a renovated town house with space for manicures, pedicures, and waxing, the name has a garden where clients sip lattes while their deep-conditioning treatments (Muñoz’s own cholesterol-based recipes) sink in.

What is up with this blatant hair bigotry?

Is it a strictly aesthetic choice or is Haime allergic to Negroid hair?
