When did how someone else wears their hair become such a topic of debate these days? Actually, I guess it’s always been a hot topic. I remember back in the days the “face-off” was short hair vs. long. Or if I were to crack open my “School Daze” DVD, I’d remember the old school natural vs. relaxed debate.
But nowadays it just feels like we’re so far divided. Especially since the internet and social media has brought us together from all corners of the world. It seems like a powerful thing to be able to chat about haircare tips with women in New York, Atlanta, London, Los Angeles, Paris, Port of Spain, Lagos, Cape Town, etc. That is until the way you wear your hair is revealed. You better join a team. #naturalhair #relaxedhair and may the force be with you if you wear a weave.
Honestly, it’s all really silly. Variety makes life interesting and as an avid people watcher, I enjoy seeing different hairstyles on Black women.
After all, shouldn’t it be more about what’s in our heads than what’s on it?
Weigh in, Bombshells? What are your thoughts on this whole hair thing?
