Moral Monday: Black Women
This makes completely no sense to me. I feel like it is a diss against african roots to wear horse hair in your hair because you are self conscious of what white counterparts think because your hair is so short. Or because long hair is always betrayed as beautiful in loreal commercial or garnier commercials or herbal essences commercial. Long thick shiny silky hair. You never see anyone in a commercial with short hair and showing how beautiful it actually is. Or you never see many individuals who keep their hair the way they were born with it. Curly and beautifully puffed. Why. I don't understand it myself. I
never get why it is done. The whole process of keeping the fake hair maintained is rediculous in all itself. Why must it be something of the norm. I want to go somewhere that people of African descent are happy with what they got and show it well. It is important to be happy with what you have and not with what you don't have. Weave has been around even before generations I even heard of were established. I just don't understand why some feel it is important to have uncomfortable itchy hair on their head to make themselves blend in more with the white counterparts (even if they are not trying to purposely do so) that have flowing hair that is always favored as long decently thick straight hair. Curls are not a good look. Why? I don't have the slightest Idea in my mind.
