Soo this week for some reason both Gabrielle Union & Nicki Minaj felt the need to "show-off" their real hair....

http://web.stagram.com/n/nickiminaj/" rel="nofollow - nickiminaj  No perm. No extensions.    7h

http://web.stagram.com/n/gabunion/" rel="nofollow - gabunion  Ladies... You can achieve hair growth... With a weave! This is allllll mine, no clips, no extensions, hadn't even been pressed...And it got this healthy thick legnth from responsibly wearing weaves.  http://web.stagram.com/tag/weaveandflowletitgrow/" rel="nofollow - #weaveandflowletitgrow     1d

Gab, tell us something that we dont know. Women have been using weaves as protective styles for years. And as for Nicki, I appreciate the pic but tbh you need a serious trim. What irks me about these posts is the assumption that black women can't seem to grow hair past their shoulders and when they do its some huge accomplishment. Did I miss some memo? As long as you take care of your hair, no matter what texture, it will grow. And they dont even seem to be bra-strap length. When you get hair as long as longhairdontcare2011 (Domin, i think?) then I'll be impressed. Okay Im done ranting. And no, Im not hating on their growth neither am I some bitter, bald b*tch. More than likely, Im doing the most lol. and dont stone me, it's my first topic in tttEmbarrassed

I've always thought Nicki would be bald headed. Good for her :)
Gabi has always irked me. She's ugly to me and just comes off like she would be a bitch in real life.

I love Gabby, but she trippin.

Any hair is good hair, but hers doesn't look so great that all that was necessary.

Beautiful clear skin tho!

I love Gabby <3 <3 <3 but she needs a SERIOUS trim. and you don't need weave in order for your hair to grow.

lol@ gabby… 'ALLLL' that hair needs a trim? its real thin on the ends. 
i can't believe she said all that.. 

nicki didnt do the most like gabby so ill say nothing but she looks great 
well.. there is nothing i could say about nicki. her hair looks good

1. Gabbys hair looks a little rough, like maybe heat damage or needs more moisture. Let us not lie, outside of this site how many ppl think because you wear weave you must be bald headed

I rather take relationship advice than hair advice from gabby. And nicki, not surprised, with all those bulky wigs she was wearing, she must have been doing deep conditioning treatments under them.

i really don't think people believe this like they used to… 

everyone wears it now.. 

even like Waist length ppl (LB)..

i remember telling a friend years ago that my hair was past apl and she was all surprised… i was like, did you think it didnt grow under there..? (she mixed, long thick curly hair.. and was a 'hair snob') she stopped with her little comments (unless she could visibly see the person was bald headed) 

now she feels completely different about weave.

Nicki's hair looks cute. I'm somewhat surprised she has healthy edges. I don't see that with most LF wearers.

I'm on my phone, so I can't really tell, but her hair looks fvcked up from what I gathered.

It's a way to show off your "white girl" length.

Right where Niki is holding her ends is where she needs to trim....but i like the "natural" look on Nicki tho

I don't see what Gabby is proud ofConfused She needs to keep hiding that sh*t with those weaves and come correct next time.

Nicki looks so beautiful in those.

I think the message was for the women tht slap on a weave and dont take care of their hair underneath, or for the women that think just because you wear a weave your damn near bald.

You would be surprised outside of the world of BHM how many women think that their hair will not grow and do all sorts of things to destroy their hair.  My sister always slaps on wigs and her idea of managing her hair is to run the pressing comb through it.  When she was going to a hair stylist, her hair was down to her shoulders.  Not so much anymore.  My new coworker actually said my hair was "long."  I don't know exactly how long it is, but her hair is natural and neck length.  We are used to seeing women like Domin and Leobody around these parts because that's what this forum attracts.

although nicki looks pretty, her hair looks thin. I guess my preference is thick thick hair. so i "meh'd" at it. Nothing to show off imo

eta: I see thickness as a sign of health in hair, not length

still pretty though

I know what you mean because when I did wear weaves people would be shocked when they saw my hair. One girl even told me I have all that pretty hair and didn't appreciate it because I wore weaves (it was relaxed though so...?).

But you have to be practical though. When an entire race of women pretty much relies on weaves or don't ever seem to have that much hair due to relaxers, people gon think something's up. And tbh, I'm not really impressed with either of their hair. Nicki's is long but thin, and Gabby's is thick but shabby and in need of a trim and not really all that long to be taking a picture of.

gabby aint even workin with nothin. the majority of black girls i know already have her length w/out doing anything special. When she gets past shoulder length then i'll give her a round of applause. And please noone tell me that she is past shoulder length in that picture because I can tell she is tilting her head back to create the illusion of length

True, when I first started with wigs, I did stop caring for my hair. Then I found bhm and other sites. When I got my hair back growing long, I though everyone outside the Internet knew about better hair practices. I was young though lol. But I do think more people are aware now than some years ago.

Okay Gabby its not pressed but its damaged as fock from that blow dry. It looks so dry and brittle at the ends. And you can achieve healthy long hair without weave. Nice though, and Nice hair Nicki

they look alike in the pics of nicki that were posted but in general they dont. I thought I was the only one who thought nicki favored PR in these pics. I think it's because of the pose pluse the eye makeup though since PR does her eyeliner like that.

she's a coolieLOL...i suspect her hair is not naturally thick. her hair looks fine to me, medium density at the least. doesnt look chewed. i never thought she was bald-headed, not sure she's 'showing off'...

as for Gabby...i dont see what she said of did thats this most?Confused

IA...

i think the natural/balckhairhealth world has kinda pushed us into thinking that all healthy hair must be mega thick hair

as far as i know, based on pre-plasticky pics, Nikki's hair is fine-medium

Maybe it is the longest their hair has ever been.. Gabby did say too much because her hair isn't that long according to BHM standards because as it was said before..we've seen black women achieve longer lengths. 

Gabby needs a trim and it looks broke off on the sides. At least Sanaa's hair looked good and healthy. Nicki's hair is really long...she has fine hair like me.

theres a difference between the pics on here, "look at my progress" 

and gabby who is literally like "this is ALLLL my hair.. no clips, extensions, nothin! protective styling with weaves does work! its not even flat ironed!" when shes only like shoulder length and her hair doesnt look very healthy.. 
one is for support.. the other is, 'yea look at my hair, its greatness' shes being cocky..
