It always cracks me up when I hear someone say, “oh, I want a woman who is all natural, no fake hair, no nothin!” But those are the main individuals who bypass a chick with a beautiful head full of curls or relaxed hair and go straight for the one with long weave down their back. Now don’t get me wrong, I love me a good sew-in! I’ve just noticed that I am treated differently when I have a weave than when I don’t. It’s hilarious to think about how much attention I receive and how many people approach me when I have some hair in. Let me take that hair out, and rock my natural bush with the same exact outfit that I had on when I had weave, and barely get noticed.
It doesn’t matter to me either way, but if you claim to want a natural sista, don’t turn your nose down on one when you encounter her! If you like longer, straighter hair, then do you boo! Regardless of what type of hair a woman has, it’s the inside the ultimately counts. Embrace all that we have to offer…Remember, beauty comes in all shapes, sizes, colors, and hair-dos
“Character contributes to beauty. It fortifies a woman as her youth fades. A mode of conduct, a standard of courage, discipline, fortitude and integrity can do a great deal to make a woman beautiful” — Jacqueline Bisset
