We have our Hair in lockdown mode… repressing it under weaves…perms…braids…Whew…but the kink still rules…
One out of 3 Black woman wear some form of human fake hair? Each year more than a million pounds of human hair is purchased from females in China, India, Indonesia and Korea.What would we do without the Asian woman population?
Here are braids of antiquity…Thousands of years agoour sisters wore braids (more than likely a wig).The point is we need to embrace our hair; not run away from it…trying to Anglo-size…white wash…our naturalbeautiful head of kinkiness.Ever seen a perpetual weave-wearing sister without her weave? Her real hair is jacked up…chunks broken off,half kinky/half straight head of madness.
We are turning into CLOWNS. We havebecome bonafide hair imitators insteadof hair creators of our beautiful naturalness…Can you seriously say this hair looksgood?…Let’s learn to cultivate our kinkiness!!!
Conspiracy Theorists! A naturalist proclaimed that putting extensions in one’s head is totally wrong! The reason: Most human hair extensions come from Asian hair. Therefore, the Asian hair has vibrations that are interfering w/ the souls of African-Americans. And this is part of a conspiracy to erase African- American identity. …just a thought….
“Gotta get my hair done.” We will take grocery money, rent money, mortgage money, car payment money, telephone bill money, children’s clothes money and spend it to get our hair weaved, wigged, braided, permed, touched up, locked up…. We are some ladies that will splurge on our hair.
