I thought similar thoughts when I was at work and one of the attys said that she pays $400 for a straightening treatment. I just remember thinking, "girl, I can slap a perm on there for that price!"

@femmemuscle I am completely on track with you. I'm just saying that I've the creativity I've witnessed on youtube, these hair boards, etc from black women is great! we utilize methods, and make them our own. Most of us use net weaves as a general rule, and most of our salons charge $5-$15 more to use a net... but $800 for a net weave and no type of parting or closure piece thrown in?!?!??!!? Thats crazy.

And yes, I know we spend loads of money on hair but most women  who spend top dollar on their hair know to get a good looking sew in. The woman in the OP looks like she just slapped on a wig lol

I agree. Someone very close to me battles with hair loss and I pass along whatever helpful info I can.

I agree, zsazsa.  But i think it's even more annoying for those are asked "constantly" "What do you do for your hair? skin, etc."  We waste our time telling folks what they have to do? and when they find out it takes WORK..their eyes glaze over looking for the next "miracle product".

My SO has 2 high-class friends that get on my nerves. But because they are his friends.. anyway - they kept asking me questions: (sarcastic thoughts are in parenthesis)
 
"what do you do for your hair?"(comb it)
"what do you do for your skin?" (wash it)
"Where do you get that glow?" (regular rough sex)
"How do you stay thin/fit?" (I throw up a lot, it enhances the abdominal muscles)

When i answered their questions (in a civil manner), and they realized it involved work.  They did what EVERY female i've encountered does. Changed the subject

In their case, theychanged the subject - and got another martini.

old hell hags..

I wonder if it's the cost of the hair that makes it more expensive.

Caucasian women use European hair, correct? I've only heard how expensive it is. Either way, she could go to a Black salon and shave off at least 3-400

That might be it but that is still a very very high price. This just doesn't feel right. Like she has been ripped off and doesn't know it. I would be hurt if I started to go bald. I have had a love-hate relationship with my hair when I was younger but it was mine.

I had to giggle at the regular rough sex comment, LOL  It's very true, some people just don't want to take the effort that it takes to take care of themselves, learn new things, etc.  If only they would try, they could see that the results are very motivating.

It's too bad that this woman couldn't have done more research on how to take care of her hair issues, especially in a more economical manner.  Sooner or later she's going to tire of the expense and seek out another salon that won't charge her an arm and a leg for her net weaves or perhaps teach herself how to choose and apply a nice lace wig.
