It's like an epidemic of brainwashing young (no offence brown and African) girls to think they are something that they are not, why are children wearing weaves to school, what happened to cornrows, plaits and pig tails? It looks ridiculous!

I don't agree with it, unless they are like extension braids to make the cornrows/braids stay. Anyway I think it does promote negativity about natural hair, and also leads to poor hair care as they get older, and makes them more likely to have traction alopecia/balding and other problems
I honestly feel like a lot of parents are just getting lazier. You have moms who are like teenagers having kids, they aren't going to take the time to instill proper hair care in their girls, just slap a weave in that bitch and they done.
It's interesting because black girls of yesteryear tended to have long, thick and full healthy natural hair, but nowadays most these girls can't slap a ponytail together. I was looking at my dads high school yearbook from the 70s and most all the black girls had natural hair and it was all thick, full and lucious with no weaves. Weaves at a young age just never allows you to full take care of your hair and value it. Plus I don't feel comfortable with little girls having these grown Kim K hairstyles. Can you let kids be kids and just play with cornrows with the beads at the end lol1
