Everyone knows that they rock weaves too. But like someone said earlier, they are not rocking fake hair that looks similar to ours in its natural state. Our people made the hair business a multi million dollar industry and we own not nan a single penny of the earnings. That in itself should be a huge eye opener. Go to any hood in Amerikkka or an area where negroes dwell and you find a gang of Chinamen trying to entice us with their beauty supply stores. And look at how E-commerce and the web has played a huge part now. 
At the end of the day, many of us will not agree on this. But I will say this is much more than just "worrying about what people put on their head". 


You do have some good points that I do agree with.

At the end of the day there is a reason why "is that your real hair?" comes up quite frequently if there is length and/or volume, shine or a looser texture visible with hair of a black woman.

Which might not be as much of a case if more black women would embrace their hair.

And yes I do think it is unfortunate that there are women that only feel beautiful wearing hair that hasn't grown from their own scalps.

But on the other hand, I don't necessarily think that the "white women wear weaves too" argument means that they are being put on a pedestal. It simply could mean that since they aren't judged as harshly for it, neither should black women. More a case of equality perhaps.

I am well aware that there are plenty of people that do though and that is quite unfortunate as well.

The artificial hair debate is one that has been going on for a long time.

I guess it all starts with willingness to listen, willingness to learn and willingness to teach/pass it on. Often people will feel offended and not really focus on what the actual points are.

And tend to overlook that this is not about the people that wear artificial hair now and then because they don't want to damage their own hair.

But that it is about the general mentality that has been going on for a long time, which is the same mentality that passes judgement on hair that does not lay flat at the roots, the same mentality that has some little children not feeling as beautiful because they can not have their hair out or grow up with dolls with flat roots and the rest of the hair strands to match it.

At the same time, I don't think it is right to pass judgement on those that choose to wear artificial hair, even when it's for the wrong reasons.

There is however, nothing wrong with a healthy debate.

No, I think black women are smart enough to make choices based on what they like, not what the media or the women the black powerful men date.



Stern Smile  So you see the way white and lighter women are idolized, and the way softer, looser hair textures are put on a pedestal, and the dating/marriage situation in the black community, and you don't think that has any impact on how black women are trying to present themselves?


Those women may have grown up in a family where straightening your hair for the first time is a big thing because then they will be beautiful....on the eyes of their own family members. You are forgetting that the first people in our lives whose opinion matter to us is our family. If mommy straightens her daughter's hair weekly since a certain age because mommy thinks her baby girl will look better, the girl not only grows up with that routine but also sees herself only beautiful after straightening her hair.

Of course not all girls whose mothers straightened their hair grown up to enjoy that look, but the majority do,.

I feel like think back to when you got your first weave...
WHY did you want that weave?

Was it because you wanted to protect you hair? (which may now be one of the reasons why you still wear them now and not because of kim k and the media)

Or because you wanted you hair to be more normal like the people with natural straight long hair (white people, hispanic)? 

I know that's what I thought about when I got my first weave...

A girl Im talking to has a sister who does hair.
She was telling me that she had some New hair flown in from Brazil right.. took her 4 weeks to get it .. lol

That will be the day when a white woman or an Asian woman is flying in Hair from South Sudan or Zimbabwe, to be rocked on primetime TV or the evening News.

haha

They're using the same hair, they just have "people" to get it for them.
There's this big ass hair store on Wilshire Blvd that celebrity hair stylists get their hair from. I saw Kim Kimble there on her show and I think it was featured in Good Hair, as well. When I went there years ago looking for hair for prom, there was mostly white women in there. Admittedly, I was confused as fck. 

ETA: I see I misunderstood what you were saying, but I already addressed that in a previous post so....yeah.

Maria Shriver wore cornrows on primetime news.

It was a whole lot of tight ass cold wave curly perms on the tv back in ye olden days.
