May 17, 2008, HOUSTON, TX - Farouk Systems, Inc. is a billion dollar hair care company located in Houston, TX and it plans on starting a trend by “Going USA!”  Farouk Systems will stop all manufacturing in South Korea and China so it can begin manufacturing from Houston where the company currently has 3 warehouses.  

"People want 'Made in the U.S.A.' " on the products they buy, Shami said.”
