Weave/Perm or Natural?




So, a little Birdie put me on to this video a couple of days ago and as I watched it completely in awe...I couldn't help but think three things:

1) Why are some people so ignorant? ( Not just KGB , but I am also referring to the "women" in the video)

and 2) Which idiot head- honcho gave clearance to air a video that could possibly offend half of their intended audience?

You can always tell when something is created by someone who lacks knowledge on a certain topic and so much is wrong with this video.

First off, as a black woman who is always proud of who she is and her choices, hair and otherwise, I am appauled at the way they question whether or not black women even know what natural is... Now granted there are some women who live and breathe in their weave and may not recognize themselves without it, but so what?

One of the greatest joys about being a Black woman or an African-American person period is our diversity. From our skin tone to our hair texture, we are all beautiful and women should have the right to do what makes them feel confident and beautiful, whether that be attributed to a thick shiny black afro or a 16" 1B Remy fresh out the pack.(Yes, I speak weave, lol)

But women let's remember, it isn't just KGB or even white people that are ignorant when it comes to this issue. I had a heated discussion with someone we'll just call D for now and he shed light on how confused black men are on the topic of weave.

According to D, men believe that the only purpose weave serves is to appear fake and for vanity,while not understanding that allowing your NATURAL hair to rest (under braids) can provide for healing and growing benefits. And just like D, they say one thing , but their reaction is different when you step fresh out the salon..flowing!!!

While women are entitled to do whatever they want to themselves...do men really prefer us with a weave, perm or au natural?

Speak on it.......

I would accept a perm, but prefer naturally soft hair.
