@Neka, I have a response but the words just aren't coming together in a way that I feel best conveys my opinion.  In short, I don't care what anyone does with their hair but I do find it weird when women will only wear the hair(totally different texture than their own) of a woman from another race/nationality.  I love kinky/curly/coarse weaves. 
hmmmm... i can see it being weird. why not go with something closer to texture? 

what i wonder is how can we make the automatic jump that it's deeper? i get that there's a possibility that you can be brainwashed to think kink = bad. thus with it comes all of the self hate previously alluded to. 

however, there's a chance one could keep up a ritual like relaxing with no rhyme nor reason and no self hate. it was just some sh!t to do as the norm, that was done and lost all meaning until we stopped and thought about it.  some people will choose to continue and others will depart. 

shaking a polaroid picture comes to mind.  

although i get that some could argue that that is the pervasive nature point of brainwashing-- that you don't know you've been brainwashed. but why can't we as black women have a preference or pick and choose without it being dissected to death?

Star is black .

Y'all serious ?

I think the " it's just hair " manra is for people on hair boards.
Its clueless to think that it's only a preference if you're talking about reality.
But Idc sure it's just hair ....

not really. the thought of such hadn't really occurred to me.

then again, neither does the thought of being needlessly incendiary, but people do that on the internet too.   

i'm just saying it's possible, and not totally unheard of,  to post someone's pic as being your own.

I'll take wearing weaves over having to tan and get my entire body reconstructed to look more attractive to black men. Kim K wears weaves too and was a flat ass white girl before she became the famous niqqa lover she is today

Right?LOL  while the OP does have some merit...black women these days if they wear wigs and weaves are wearing them in more natural textures and looks then even 10 years ago.  We do have some females out here with self image issues but...I don't think it's a majority of black women.  
 
I do believe you have women out here that stay in weaves/wigs.  Not because of self hate but because they love long hair and they simply can't get their own hair there for whatever reason.  *shrugs*  I have heard some women say they fake it till they make it. 
 
The reason black women wear hair are not the same as in years past.  It's just that we're still demonized and crucified in media (by black and white devils) for those same past reasons.

I decided to make a new topic rather than make an OT comment.

I understand that these kinds of images in the media can put enormous pressure on black women to try to look like someone else but...I dunno, I won't judge...

Thoughts?







i can see where u are coming from..I have a daughter and she is raised around white folks..so as she got older she was wearing weaves to protect her hair..it grew a lot and i wanted her to wear her natural hair...she wasn't having it..she wanted to be like her white girlfriends and have that long hair...to this day she still wears her weaves, lace wigs, and bss wigs...part of it is my fault when she was younger..I had her wearing braids cause momma here was too tired to do her daughter's hair..so i can see this for me cause of me and my daughter's environment of being around white folks..I wonder if she would be this way with wearing weaves if she went to an all black school? probably yes...
