Black people and their hair?


Black people and their hair?
Why are there so many misconceptions about black people and their hair? From permed hair, braids, weave, to natural hair. I had a heated discussion about my hair with someone who was not black and it really surprised me because everything he thought he knew was so wrong. i had to go get another black girl to back me up.

  • Black women hair is fine if they don't put wigs or weaves. I think all women should embrace their natural hair and style it.

    Too many woman wear extensions and wigs. Smh

    • Well weaves are a protective hairstyle

    • Keep putting weaves and perming your hair. That's gonna make you look really attractive. πŸ–’

    • Some weave looks really natural and you wouldn't be able to tell the difference

  • Thank you I've never understood but admired the style of black hair

    • That's good if you can't tell the difference.

    • That's good to know

  • I understand the fustration
    But i do think telling people about the history of their hair isn't going to make them instantly prefer black girl hair lol

    Guys generally like run your finger through fine soft hair though

    • Black girl hair is soft, just thicker. That's how it ends up with more volume and fluff to it πŸ˜ƒ

    • @Cerberus_1773 I can see your hair in your picture... it's really cute and looks really soft... I love it

    • Thank you πŸ˜™

  • Pink, you hate a lot of people. Honestly saying this.
    You have no control over your emotions like I said before.

    So for this post.
    I myself have black hair, it's a choice of people what to like and what not. Don't be offended by what others say.

  • Its annoying. People think my hair is actually really short, and it's short, but it's longer than it looks. I hot comb it and it goes to my shoulders. People get freaked when I say I don't wash it everyday but every three-to-four days. And there is still a stigma that says the hair texture I was born with (black people in general) is ugly and unprofessional.
    Its annoying but people are learning.

  • They have no reason to know if they don't do the same things with their hair. I actually find it funny when I get new braids and people think I cut my hair πŸ˜‚ I tell them I would never cut my hair, it's like cutting my soul. The confused look on their faces...
