You mean to tell me that ITheir schedule is sooo tight that even on a vacation they still have the weaves and wigs on. You mean to tell me that vacation time is still not a good time to be seen with natural hair. I just saw pics of bey on vaycay with a lace weave. all that sweat and stank festering under that sweaty salt water humid atmosphere yuk. I am a huge Bey fan but during the summer I need to wear my natural hair so that I can rinse my hair often to keep it clean.
 
I am not a Lace front hater, I actuall have one so that I can have straight hair with out damaging my hair but MOST of the time I am in my own natural texture.

It's like a tired excuse. We'll be lucky if we see those so-called natural celebrities without wigs. Damn I even see Paris Hilton without her weaves once or twice LOL but come on like someone mentioned the type 3 naturals don't have a problem with wearing their hair out.

I'm not a celebrity but vacation time is not a good time to be seen with my natural hair.  I wore a weave while I was on vacation in Hawaii for 3 weeks and there was NO "sweat and stank festering under that sweaty salt water humid atmosphere".  When I swam I washed my hair afterwards and let it air dry.   The reason that my vacation was a good time to wear a weave is I don't want to spend hours dealing with my hair -- I had other things I preferred to be doing.  My natural hair is extremely thick and unruly; it wasn't uncommon to come out of the ocean with plans to go to dinner within a couple of hours.  That wouldn't allow me sufficient time to conquer my natural hair.  Additionally, for me anyway, vacation is the time that I am the subject of more photos than any other time.  I wanted to have a look that wouldn't make me shudder when I saw the pics later; without hours of work on my own hair, I wouldn't have that.

Yes it takes a few hours to get a weave sewn in, but once it's done it's good for 6-8 weeks (assuming the quality of the hair is sufficient to last that long).  I got a weave 2 days before I went on vacation and didn't have to worry about struggling with my own for the whole vacation as well as for a month afterward.

Interesting topic but I think we all have to be celebs to really know the real deal. I think that if the whole world was watching your every move you'd less likely wanna get caught looking rough-meaning not many AA women know how to style/treat their hair not to mention the time it takes. These people run on extremely tight schedules. Therefore, I don't blame them their style choices.

I've seen Tyra Banks, Beyonce and Oprah spot some more ethic styles like cornrows. We can't expect people to look like you'd like them to. But we are allowed to form our own opinions about them as we see/hear about  almost everything they do in public.

My natural hair is not a struggle. pretty box braids can last a few weeks. Its seems that people still view natural hair as toe-up. Beyonce is beautiful and she will be even more beautiful with her own naturally beautiful hair blowing in the wind instead of someone else.

What are they protecting their hair from? I honestly don't get it..... How many black celebrities with 4AB hair that wear wigs and weaves actually wear their real hair??? NONE. now I've seen cornrows but that's the inbetween style until their next weaveLOL
 
and comparing black women wearing weaves to white women is a bunch of bs. White women wear weaves for LENGTH and black women for TEXTURE. how many white women have we seen without their extensions??
 
pretty much all the ones that wear it. nicole ritchie, paris, britney spears, eva longeria...
 
For black women to wear their natural hair they have to be 3ABC or mixed.

Girl, you spending hours doing your hair? what exactly are you doing?LOL
 
Don't you spend time doing your weave hair? or does the weave comb it self?

frankly the fact that MOST balck women sport weaves says alot about how unconfortable we are with our own hair texture. NO OTHER RACE is that hellbent on rocking fake hair. NONE. OUR reasons are much deeper than ant white girl who wants thicker hair. we often wear them because we dont like having to deal withour own texture like its the devil. its not the same thing, period.
 
 
none of these celebrities should be ashamed of wearing non-euro looking hair because black women ARENT BORN with euro hair. what is SO wrong with our own coils and curls for everyone to ALWAYS try and hide them?
 
80% of black women relax and/or wear weaves. NO OTHER group of women does so much to hide who they are.
