why is it that the most negative comments about
natural black hair come from our own race? smh this makes no sense to
me, ive seen that alot of other races appreciate and love our natural
hair whereas ill pass another black women and shell make a negative
comment about natural hair. this has baffled me so much, and im not
saying all black people or women, but there is more than a few who look
down at natural hair for no reason! just because i choose not to apply
chemicals to my hair its like i get shunned, but their the ones burning
their scalps up, so shouldnt i be the one lookin at them like their
crazy. i havent been natural all my life, lord knows ive recovered from
the creamy crack, but even when i was relaxed i would admire natural
Sadly enough, MissBrittify, i was one of those
brainwashed individuals who wanted "long, straight, hair"..i never even
wanted to see my own when ever i had a weave take down. I hated the
fact, that my own hair was not "Long, wavy and luxurious"..every 2
months, the only way i smiled in the mirror was when my weave was
installed. (whether it was jacked up, it didn't matter)..
Unfortunately, this strange mentality is in every race. It's called ignorance
when i went natural, or decided to give up my "waist length fake hair",
for twists, cornrows, or a short afro? black and hispanic folks that i
knew either looked at me as i just landed off of a UFO, or jumped off
the slave boat. Some even ran from me. The very ones who were always
running toward me when i wore long hair to play in that weave, or "show
me off" as their "girlfriend".. yes mostly black guys.
my hair journey from relaxed and weaved up to natural.. you can't win
either way. When you wear weave - or relaxed hair, you get the comment:
"That ain't all her hair"
or you get the weave check.. If you have natural hair? then you get the "That chick needs a hot comb"
comment, or something far more malicious.
Either way, you can't win.. so you might as well stay on the healthy route..
