Please explain how this hair is "not socially acceptable"?


I guess you have never been to the south.
Try wearing that in rural areas of NC.
i was clowned by both blacks and whites.
You have to understand that you live in a liberal area,and Cali isnt like everywhere else.

Slightly related,but Solange always gets flack for her hair when its natural.


You also don't seem to get that those women you posted,that is not their natural curl pattern.
They twisted their hair aka twist out or braid out. Also probably used curly cream to bring out curls.
Im sure they would get the side eye if they had 4c hair with no curls whatsoever.
See Lil Mama's pic of her natural hair and the slave hair comments.
Dreadlocks are natural hair btw.


One more thing,but some of them ARE wearing weaves.
Its just weave that closely resembles natural hair.
See heat free hair. also Mongolian hiar has that pattern.

These are money making lies that hair stylists tell clients to make certain that they have regular clients. Not to mention that MANY hair stylist are just that....stylists and are not into healthy hair care. My hair is longer, stronger and healthier since I stopped going to salons.
You sound jaded from a bad stylist.

Not all of us are like that, and I honestly prefer longer haired clients.

Um, maybe if you are using slang, but that's not the correct names for them.

Generally a weave is either sewn in, or woven in (thus the naming), while extentions are either clipped, cold or hot bonded, beaded/linked in. There are also other ways to add hair like gluing.

Naw, it's not that there's anything crawling around (usually!); it's just an itch on the skin.

If someone wants to grow their hair long and healthy, no matter the texture, there is a wealth of free information available via hair forums, YouTube hair care demos, books, blogs, etc. There really is no need to cling to the old myths about having "bad hair".
Good for you, that it works for you; but you can not argue science and genetics. All hair grows to a pre-determined length (determined by your genes), and it will not grow longer, that is your terminus length.


As for "weaves" I am certified in sew-in's, hot fusion bonds, linking, beading and glue in extention hair, and depending on the person, their activity level (how they most often wear their hair), what they want it for, etc... will determine what type of extention, the length of the extentions, and the method used to get them to their goal.

Now I have natural hair to the top of my butt, so I don't wear them, but my bestie does and her hair won't grow over a certain length; so we make her look like Barbie, lol.

Calipoppy, now you are shocking me - you are not even a hair specialist. You work in HR.

How did you aquire all that knowledge you have about hair? You are acting like a know all, you seem to know everybody elses hair better than themselves and your statements are mostly very ignorant. Is that just how you are (putting statements out as facts but no proof) or do you have any references and education about being a hair professional?

This! That hair looks like typical biracial hair to me not black black like Lupida O'nyongoo. And even she has been criticized for not getting weave.

And before anyone says there is no correlation between race and hair, usually there is. Like Chinese people typical have straight hair I'm sure there are Chinese women out there with Lupida O''nyongoo hair but you know its rare.

I'm pro-weave and have no issue with it. My hair is natural, relaxer-free since 2009 but I will occasionally put in a weave for several reasons, none of which are to look like another race.

Mainly, to give my hair a rest from styling. I have very fine, fragile, tightly-coily hair that breaks very easily. Its hard to retain length and is extremely dry. Because of this my regular regimen involves heavy moisturizing every 2 days and to achieve a neat, curly look, I need to twist and roll up my hair every few days. Its work and sometimes I need a break.

Because my hair breaks so easily, I avoid putting any heat on it and do not straighten my hair at all. That's where weaves come in because it gives me the straightened, long style I like but without damaging my hair.

And as a bonus, after wearing a weave for so many months, the protection of not having my own natural hair out and exposed to the elements helps it retain a lot of growth. I always do them myself and match my texture so it looks very natural.

That's not Biracial hair.
That is either a twist out or Bohyme Brazilian wave hair weave.

There are lots of hair extensions now to match 4a to 4c type hair.
It blends perfectly.
