    Joan Johnson, co-founder of Johnson Products Company, has died at age 89.

    (CNN)Joan Johnson, who helped create one of the nation's largest black-owned companies, has died.

    Johnson, 89, co-founded Johnson Products Company, the pioneering black hair care company which made iconic products such as Ultra Sheen and Afro Sheen. She died Friday in Chicago after a long illness.
    She started Johnson Products Company in Chicago in 1954 with her husband, George Johnson. They took a $250 investment and turned it into a multi-million dollar company which became the first black-owned company to be traded on the American Stock Exchange (now known as NYSE American).

    AKA Activator, which was very greasy and would often stain clothing and furniture.

    I'm white, but when I had hair, it was long, thick, curly & wiry (think Troy Polomalu), so I used Ultra Sheen. It worked really well, much better than hair mousse/gel or the greasy stuff like Brylcreem. I never tried Afro Sheen, and now it's too late (although, maybe I could use it on my beard?)
