If anyone knows me, they know that I’ve been rocking my hair el naturel for most of my adult life. Whether it’s been in box braids, locks,
wash n-go, afro’s or micro’s. I have been an avid natural hair supporter. It’s not that I don’t find the lovely styles that is created with curling irons, and weaves beautiful. It’s just that those particular hairstyles don’t work well for me. Somehow though, it has become such a hot topic for people to discuss. Let’s be real, it’s a hot topic with females. I honestly doubt men are sitting around discussing whether they like a weave, afro, locks, relaxed or whatever on a female. I believe when they converse about women it’s more on the lines of lower body extremities. I seriously doubt they are talking about our hair. Can you imagine? A man sit’s down in his barber chair and says to his barber, “Aye man, I just got a number from this sexy chic, with the most vibrant weave I’ve ever seen! I mean I loved the way, her freshly relaxed hair blew in the wind!” LMBO! Naw I think it would go a lil like this, “Aye man, I just got the digits from this sexy woman…she had a PHAT A*% and some nice T**%#%$!!” I’m just saying and keeping it real. I don’t think men are as concerned with our hair, as we are.
Back to the subject at hand. This discussion was about whether men like natural or relaxed/weaved woman. It got me to thinking, and I realized that question really had me saddened. WHY? Well first off I honestly can’t believe that a grown woman, that is suppose to have self love…would ever put that much weight on a man. I mean, if the body is our temple…this temple is ours to do what we want with it. Why, would it be up to men to decide how a woman wears their hair? SECOND, This is already a man’s world. They control the money, politics (Which means that they already set the laws of the land). Why would I need to consult them for my God given hair? So instead I did a video on my opinion concerning the matter. I wanted to share my thoughts with you as well. I mean you are my blog-mates. I hope to hear your feedback on the matter. I mean everyone is entitled to their opinion…and my opinion is IT’S TIME TO RECLAIM OUR IDEA OF BEAUTY!!
