whoever said to you that you looked like a little african that Oprah should buy a school for 
is ignorant ,uneducated and needs to travel there before they make comments like that!!!!!
I lived there for most of my life and to be honest with you-half of them have their hair in perms
most of my friends switch up their hair every two weeks-from lace wigs right up to weaves-They adore fashion ,they went to universities outside my country ,so i'm pissed that this person's perception of Africa is what they see on world vision board-
NOT ALL OF US   ARE DIRT POOR LIVING IN HUTS-GET YOUR FRIEND TO GET  ON A FREAKING PLANE AND TRAVEL TO AFRICA-COZ IM JUST SICK TO DEATH OF THAT STEREO TYPE!!!!


So everybody is gunna act like she didnt just say that huh?

I do like the AA relaxed textured weaves and I dont mind the curly/kinky weaves but this Indian/Chinese/Malaysian/and who knows what other nationalities people be rocking?? Nooo! Save that money and dont give it away to these folks. They are laughing at your black ass and you're boosting their ego all for the sake of "beauty". I'm not judging people who wear it like they're bad people b/c as I said, I used to do it, but I wanted to get people to really think and look at it because sistas dont need to be wasting our money on that bullsh*t. All that does is perpetuate the message that non-black hair > black hair which isnt true


 I agree. People spend so much money on hair that's supposed to be exotic and for what? who you really foolin? we know it ain't yours sweetie. lol

I agree, the Virgin Indian Hair is the best thing when looking to wear extensions. I see that your location is the Auburn, AL area! I actually graduated from Auburn in 2009 and I applaud u for pursuing two degrees at the same time. I used extensions as a way to grow out my relaxer and the Indian Hair has been a lifesaver & a money saver! I was spending $ on hair every time I put a sew-in in my hair but with the Indian Hair I can use and reuse it. I've had some of my bundles since 2009 and it still looks good.

I know a major inconvenience for the Auburn area, however, is the fact that there is not easy access to the Virgin Indian/Brazilian/Malaysian Hair. Wouldn't it be ideal if the hair came on the market in Auburn? So many college students (Black & White) wear the hair and I think if it became available in Auburn. As opposed to driving to Atlanta or Birmingham it would be better to have it in the area.

First off...War Eagle!

I agree it would be great if there was some place that had QUALITY virgin hair here in Auburn. It would make my life so much easier lol. I order mine online but I would prefer to see it before I buy.

I am tired of seeing black women wearing other people's hair on their heads. It just sends a bad message and is pathetic.

I used to do this myself so I'm not looking down on anyone, I'm speaking from experience and truth. There's so much hype about Indian hair, I thought it was supposed to be the best and better than synthetic and all the rest. When I got a lil money and got my first real job I would drop hundreds of dollars on Indian hair.  I would get my real hair braided down and have some Indian woman's hair sewn on top of it. I thought I was the sh*t with that flowing black pin straight locks. I thought that was what you were supposed to have. Never mind that it's stringy as hell, doesn't stay in place, can't hold a curl like what I'm used to. That was supposed to be the epitome, right?

You are wearing another ethnicity's hair on your head instead of your own. Why? Is it REALLY just about fashion and the trend or something more? You don't hear about vendors selling Jamaican and Haitian hair. I'd rather a black woman buy that than Indian/chinese/Malay hair.  I wonder how lil Aishwarya feels to see all these black women walking around with hair like hers. I bet she feels superior and looks at us like we some damn fools. I mean, wouldn't you be cocky if you knew that thousands (maybe millions) of women spend hundreds of dollars to install the very hair that grows out of your head naturally?

Why do this sh*t?

Me personally I wear my own hair, but I like weaves as a protective styling. I retain length better with sew-ins then I do any other protective. It wonderful to use if you don't want to apply heat or straighten your real hair. It grows wonderfully, because I make sure my hair is care for underneath. Also, I don't want to cut my hair,  so sometimes I get a short wig or weave. I like to change up my style a little bit. I don't want to ruin my hair in the process, so I get a weave instead. People may judge me (like they did when I went natural), but I'm gonna do me regardless on what people say.

This. Its a choice. An accessory. A way to switch it up. A way to protect your hair. Not everybody can be natural. Or should I say not everybody WANTS to be natural. I've been relaxed, I've gone natural, worn wigs, and weave. It all depends on what mood I'm in.
