I like your comment on the Boogie Knight thread and I thought of if when...
I am watching a show on OWN, during the break, there was a commercial (ad) about hair weave.
I am soooo glad the Natural Look is making a comeback. I remember when Black folk got all caught up in lables on Jeans, shoes & shirts. Some so caught up that they'd be at a club wearing shoes etc that cost more than their rent or carnote (if they are driving) as their bills went unpaid. Now it's hair????
The prices of this stuff is off the meter and the cost of getting it done? WOW!!!
It's a lot to go threw for a natural look of LONG hair, that at the end of the day says...it's not your hair, having the reciept don't count. I remember the Toni Braxton, Halle Berry, T-Boz short cuts that are very sexy IMO, but now its sew someone else hair in their own hair.
It's no secret that this is marked strictly to Black Woman and is a waste (money wise) because all the weave in the world is not going to repair any other issues that are going on.
Some Blackfolk and their intent to be - fill in Blank_______________________. I really hope that the natural look thing takes off and blow away the weave thing and Blackwomen stop getting duped. Blackwomen are famous for having the big shit that men like, Ass, Brest, Lips, Hips, Legs etc and plenty of non Black women are getting shots and who knows what the hell else to get them items as SOME Black women are going broke to have hair like a non Black woman has???
Bad Mama Jamma is a thing of the past I guess, that song had no lyrics about hair in it. Nor did the song Brick House.
I am wondering if this has come about because the - Stereo Type Successful Blackmen or professional athletes go get white wommens?
The thing that I am interested in is...since that hair is natural and knapp free, will black women be more aptd to go swimming, make love under a running shower, get their purchased hair wet?
I saw a fight at the club in Afghanistan and at the end up the night, the cleaning crew was sweeping up popcorn from the knocked over machine and pieces of weave
Blackmen were Conked out from the 1920's threw the 60's.
The Temptations etc, mad conk.
The Natural got large in the late 60's threw the 70's...until the blowout kit came along for bigger afros. Then somebody discovered a wet fro curled up but....hot to keep it that way? Ahh, the birth on the Jheri and 18 other curls took over in the 80's for most of that decade.
This video is too much
Maybe this weave phase will be the end of Blackwomen using it like the 70's ended the popularity and use of the conk styles.
What are your thoughts on the wonderful world of weave?
