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.

I must ask K_Camille where did you get those shoes???  mmm that drink looks interesting what is it?  Yeah it's me again bartender, what u gonna do? huh?



Sh*t...I'm wasted.  I don't remember where I got these shoes from.  Are the actresses coming back? Wait,  what the show is over?  The hell kind of ending is this?  I have to wait and come back to buy tickets for Part 2.. Tyler Perry is a fawking crook; I paid out the ass for these tickets!

I got my first weaves at 16, once for my BFFs sweet 16 and again for prom. My first "high end" weave purchase was Bobraz. After that Ive purchased similar textures by HC, RHO, HE, MD. I love my curl pattern and texture but I like it long too!

I started venturing into straighter textures at the suggestion of my boo. He was like damn I don't see any difference but length; if you're gonna pay $ why not buy something different from the usual??? 

I think Bribby's question is a relevant one, if we think back to the 1st time we got a weave and our motivations, I bet it would be really revealing.
