Guilty . After wearing Weaves on and off for many years , BHM taught me Perms and Weaves where not a good mix in my case lol . I use my pressing comb on my leave out and call it day . I will TL my leave out in the summer .

I do think its a trend for many who see natural hairstyles and think "that's hot" or "different." But I don't see anything wrong with one thinking one's own hair is fashionable for a change.

The statement is in the mind of the beholder.

Honestly I went natural without all the fanfare. I was wearing weaves for the longest time and didn't see the point in relaxing my hair if I wasn't going to wear it out. Eventually, I started wearing my own hair out and that's when I put an emphasis on actually taking care of my hair, etc.

Personally, my hair is not a political statement, or a massive "eff you" to white/mainstream culture. It's hair that I take care of and want to look good whether I wear it straight, curly or am weaved up or have it under the wig.

the other way to look at this question is, 'is not going natural a sign of low self esteem and conformity?'

that would have been a much more intersting question


and just for good measure, shout out to malcolm x and angela davis

im a guy, and because of such, thats one of the few topics im am not 'eligible' to speak on or even question

shoot even my most begnin topics are considered entrampment.

it would quickly crumble into a 'men tryna tell women what to do with their bodies and heads and whatever else' thread

however, do you remember the thread that was made about whether mrs obama should sport herself a natural hair style?

It's not that serious. It's just frikkin hair., whether it's nice and healthy, kinky, curly, or Indian remy. 
 
Yep, for some it is.
 
Just like light skin/dark skin thing etc ... these people have self esteem issues that they mask in their bombardment of insults to other people that make other choices with their hair. Who cares? These folks are petty and judgemental.
 
I wore a TWA for 30 years .. even did a little face modeling for Ebony magazine back in the day. Black folks mainly had a problem with it though - so sad. Then yearsss later I had health problems etc.. which lead to hair problems etc so I started with the lace wigs - indian remy etc. They looked good ... only now I am in kinky curly lace wigs and woooow. I wear a big curly afro and with the new hair products for very curly hair I can manage it nicely.  Yes, does take extra time to manage but it's worth it.. because it looks so GREAT!
 
I get so many compliments from White people actually - Black folks still have a problem with it Confused but it look like the old natural me!!!
 
But .. whether you wear natural, permed, weaves, braids, locs, wigs ... it's a free country and nobody deserves to be beatened up over their hair. Ouch
 
I've noticed that too...
