Black People Hair

It’s dirty. NOT! Water helps our hair to grow. It needs the moisture. We actually co-wash our hair regularly and can spritz it several times a day with water.It’s not combed or styled. Definitely not true! We didn’t just “wake up like this” and go to work. We take great care and pride in styling our hair by doing twist-outs, bantu knots, Afros, braids, etc., but what looks not styled to you basically means it doesn’t look like your hair. Black natural hair, like Afros and Afro-puffs are a distraction. Well that’s a huge insult and is borderline bullying. That’s how my natural hair goes when put in ponytail holders or when combed. Saying it is a distraction is like saying my face is a distraction because it’s what I was born with. Asking me to process or relax my hair to make you feel comfortable is like asking me to get plastic surgery so you can look at me.You’re being rebellious or making a political statement. This isn’t a political movement. My hair could care less about being a rebel. It’s just the way it grows out of my head, just as yours does.My (Caucasian) “natural hair” is how I look when I’m home, as opposed to when I’m at work. That’s not what we mean by natural hair at all. We simply mean, this is how our hair grows out of our head. At home, we may have it wrapped and set in a scarf or in braids for an upcoming style. Your natural isn’t our natural.Black hair doesn’t grow – Oh boy, DOES it grow! It even grows better in its natural state because we aren’t applying harsh chemicals and heat, which often breaks the ends of our hair, making it appear that it’s not growing. Here’s a shocker—A Black woman with natural hair that appears to be shoulder length is very deceiving. Most likely the length of her hair reaches down to her derrière, but the curl, actually known as shrinkage makes it appear much shorter.It doesn’t move. Yes, our coarse hair can defy gravity but the longer it grows, the more it moves.Is that your real hair? Don’t ask if my hair is a weave. That’s rude. Not every Black woman wears a weave.It might have bugs in it. Black hair is the most resistant hair to any bugs, including lice. They really don’t like our petroleum and waxy hair products either but just because someone has braids, locs or Afros, don’t assume their hair is unkempt. It takes a LOT of effort to maintain black hair and we still go to the salon regularly to upkeep our locs and braids.I can’t dye my hair pink and go to work. EXACTLY! So why are we REQUIRED to put harmful chemicals in our hair to stay employed? Pink hair dye isn’t natural and neither are relaxers.You can’t be taken seriously with that hair. But I can be taken seriously wearing someone else’s hair, otherwise known as weaves, hair extensions or a wig? A word of advice: take a Black woman wearing her natural hair VERY seriously! I’m just saying.It’s unprofessional. When you say it’s unprofessional, again what you are truly saying is that it doesn’t look like your hair or like the hair of people you know. Just because it’s unfamiliar doesn’t make it wrong. Know that black natural hair doesn’t lessen a person’s ability to do their job.I want to touch it. Don’t touch it. Just don’t do it. It’s demeaning. It’s just not acceptable.

It’s sad to see how women are pitting themselves against each other. Natural black ladies’ hair is a thing to be celebrated and embraced. The euro-centric culture we live in has made every effort to stomp out that kind of hair and now it is time to reclaim it. Just as it is time for women to get out of the male-centered culture we live in and stand up for female comradery. Look what females of all races to do themselves to try and fit into cultural beauty norms. It’s sad and disgusting. Then look on this board. Look at the comments. You’ve got white women proclaiming “I’m not like those other DUMB white women, I know about this.” You’ve got black women calling white ladies’ hair “dog fur.” NO ONE IS DUMB AND NO ONE IS COMPARABLE TO A DOG.Ladies! Ladies! Why are we attacking each other? If everyone just used their words to explain how they feel when they are treated in a certain way, this wouldn’t happen. I grew up in a heavily diverse area and when i went to sleepovers, my black classmates used to love to play with my hair. I hated it. I hated it so much. I never did anything to my hair because it held no interest for me. So having a bunch of people doing my hair at a party was probably my worst nightmare. So you know what I did? I said I didn’t appreciate my hair being touched. That’s all. People fussed with me a bit and then they dropped it. People are and always will be interested in whatever they don’t personally have, because it’s new and different to them; this isn’t somehow a unique trait to white people. Black people, however, have it way harder than almost anyone else, I believe. Simply because of this euro-centric culture. Even though all hair is different, even between people of the same ethnicity, black peoples’ hair seems to fall the furthest out of euro-centric norms. They have been harassed, belittled, chastised and degraded because of how their natural hair looks. As white people, especially, we need to understand and remember this whenever we make a comment about a black persons hair. Yes, we are all people. Yes, we are all one. However, everyone has been affected differently in this life and all people need to be aware of that. What may seem like a relatively benign question about a black woman’s hair to you may carry the emotional baggage of a history of negativity regarding their hair that you are not aware of. Ladies, all ladies, please. Just be considerate and aware. I want women to feel good about themselves for the first time in history. We get so much sh*t as women from our male-oriented culture that the last thing we need to do is add to that negative female experience for ANY woman by our actions as women. (To the lady, “Lucky” down a bit on the board: It hurts me to hear my hair referred to as “dog fur,” too, ya know?)We’re all women, let’s make each other finally feel good about that.

Best Hair Products For Black Men Stop Searching: These Are The Best Hair Products For Black Men Darren Griffin December 13, 2015 Share Tweet 0 Shares Fall and winter may be held up as the best times of the year for great fashion, but the harsh climate, while ideal for layering, can be extremely damaging to healthy hair without the proper care. Men of color, who often have a difficult time maintaining their natural moisture in any season, typically find the cold problematic as it relates to hair maintenance and grooming. Most suffer from dry, brittle and tangled hair when temperatures drop, resulting in breakage that ceases to promote growth and combat desired styling. Efficient hair care, contrary to popular belief, is much easier than many like to admit. Most men assume it’s expensive, time consuming and tedious. Not true. Hair care isn’t bad at all, and much of what you need is reasonably priced; that is, if it’s not already in your possession. In recent years, and for black men specifically, the market for accessible and type-specific products has expanded exponentially (making some truly awesome hairstyles for black men available to the masses). What’s more, much of what you need to ensure great hair in cooler climates may be already in your home. Check out a few of the products we consider among the best for black hair.
