This topic is crazy..I personally don't wear weaves but theres nothing wrong with them. I just don't see why ppl have to put down others for a style preference. Its always a problem when black women do something even our own community has negativity towards weaves. Black Women are BEAUTIFUL no matter what...Relaxed textlaxed natural and weaves/wigs. Just because it maybe self hate to a few black women doesn't mean its the reality for every black women. You can't just lump everybody all together.

One more thing, can it be said that black women who get kinky straight weaves are self-hating because they see long hair as something so desirable that they use fake hair to fool people? Whereas the woman sporting Indian hair is just using hair as an accessory?

I kind of agree with you but I find that a lot of black women crave and desire certain textures (i know you've seen certain threads now...). they mostly want every nationality in the world to make weaves with but their own and that’s the saddest part... not knocking weave wearers because i have worn weaves and i probably will again, but its the DESIRE for xyz texture.... its a bit weird/sad imo and i don’t really see this with any of my white weave/extension crazy friends/family

I agree. Other women wear extensions but black women take it to a whole different level. 
On any given day I can guarantee that the majority of black women I come in contact with will have some type of weave/relaxer.
The same can't be said about other races. We weave up our elementary school babies (micro braids anyone?) and don't see an issue with it. We (black women) have major major hair issues. A lot of us can't step out the house without weave or a relaxer, but refuse to admit it. We need to realize that this is a whole different type of slavery, they have fooled MANY of us into thinking that we need straight/indian hair to be beautiful.

Other races wear weaves but we have taken this to such an extreme level that yes, it is a problem, and everyone sees it but us.

On a closing note, I had a latino gentleman approach me earlier this week and said "omg you're so beautiful, its hard to find black women with natural hair AND nails!".. I was embarrassed for us.

I'm thinking about going natural but when its all said and done.... I Will still switch my hair up because i'm versatile and NO ONE can do EVERY hairstyle they'd like to wear with their own real hair so depending on what style I'm going for that day I will wear a certain type of hair that will make it look exactly how I imagined lol (shrugs)but AA Hair is gorg no doubt about it...only problem I see with AA women rocking Indian hair is when they ALWAYS rock it and NEVER embrace their own

Good thread.
some ignorant comments, but good thread.
 
It's not a point of judgement, but its deceptive and it sends a bad message to the masses of young black girls who will, undoubtedly, grow up thinking that something is wrong with their hair, and that it needs to be replaced/fixed with a different type of hair, when its not.
 
and why are ppl brining up white women wearing weave. We ALL know its not the same at all.
