Interesting topic suggestion brought up by my very own brother. We shall revisit the hair debate again.
The braiding, straightening and adorning of hair is all to make one feel good about oneself and/or to attract another person. I mean can we keep it real. So, what decision is best when the two goals become mutually exclusive.
Me: When you straighten your hair, the heat can break the bonds just like a chemical. Then your hair won't revert back to curls.
Girl: I know, I know. Let me get married first.
I have heard this more than once. The idea that a man (read: black man) does not like his woman's hair to be, dare I say it, NAPPY!
Me: I don't understand the Rapunzel weaves. So much hair.
Guy: I don't understand why everyone wants to be natural all of a sudden.
Do black women really hate their hair?
