Well now this should be a pretty interesting read!! Black women spend countless hours at the hairdressers while spending millions of dollars on hair products—and hair. The theory is that we do it for ourselves; we boost our self esteem when we feel and look good. However, when we’re honest, we acknowledge that we consider how the guys will react to us after we are fried, dyed and laid (or twisted) to the side. So, we asked a few fellas from Facebook to share with us what they really liked—and loathed—about our hair. Hope your ready!
DON’T go Kool-Aid crazy with your color job. Nicki Minaj and her cakes can pull off rainbow colored hair but if you are considering a new hue for your strands, please limit your hair to realistic shades that can actually grow from your human scalp—and everywhere else on you body.
Speaking of scalp….
DON‘T sacrifice your follicles to wear a weave. If your hairline starts behind your ear, spending hundreds of dollars on hair to put on top of a balding scalp does not make any sense. Regardless of how fine you think you are, you are not fine enough get away with not having any edges to go with that $300/ounce Indian Remy.
Do sport an occasional weave for a special event or a quick change of style as long as it looks natural
Do wash your hair/weave/afro etc stank hair is never cute when cuddling!
DON’T wear an obvious wig, especially one that isn’t even stylish. It looks fake even if the box says that it comes with a ’natural’ hairline and ’baby’ hair. What baby hair? You are not fooling anyone with that wavy wreck of a wig.
DO rock a short cut to highlight cute features and a pretty face.
DO remember that long hair is an average girl’s friend! Seriously, the fellas said this!
DON’T be afraid to step out against societal norms and stand proud with your natural hair.
DO keep it simple. There is something hot about a woman that can pull it together in a few minutes and still look better than most women that spend hours at the salon.
DON’T restrict your curls. The bigger the better! The fellas like a little (or a lot) to touch.
Do wear a crown of locs as long as they are not of the Whoopi Goldberg variety.
DO disregard all the previous advice if your body is bangin’ and your ’stuff’ is good. In that case, odds are no one is even looking at your hair and you might as well not have any!
So what do you think ladies, too harsh or too true? drop it like its hot below ;p
