most people don't want white barbie hair..
You already stated that many black women don't like their hair.. and I agree..
you have tighter curls you have to deal with shrinkage.. When your hair
shrinks it doesn't show length you actually have. Having long hair itself is seen a
With looser textures you can still see length... If most
black women had hair like tracee ross and chilli from tlc i doubt you'll
see as many weaves and flat irons..
totally agree with this. I love my natural hair, but considering how
kinky coily hair has a whole different set of rules that you have to
deal with in terms of cold weather, humidity, etc. I don't wear my hair
out all the time. Yes, sometimes it's because I'm PSing. And other times
it's because I don't feel like wearing it. I rock my hair natural in
twist outs, and also flatironed. Doesn't mean I'm dealing with self
loathing. it DEFINITELY means I love being able to switch my look up
with minimal effort.
With a damn near 75% shrinkage rate on my
APL hair, WNG's are NOT an option. So by default I have to do some type
of styling the night before on my hair in order to have it be up to my
standard of presentable for outside wear. Once you start factoring in
things like the time needed, etc, it's understandable why a lot of women
turn to extensions/weaves/wigs as an alternative for when they may not
be in the mood to put the effort into their own hair on the daily.
I put very minimal heat on my natural hair, so pretty much any "set
styles" have to be done the night before. Hence, when I wear my hair
out, I do have to plan (to an extent) in advance what it is I want to do
with my hair
