What does it mean to be “natural” – no weave, no make-up? Or does it mean more than that.. If your hair is relaxed your not natural anymore, are you? No, because your hair isnt in its natural state..
Have you shaped your eyebrows? Then you’re not natural..
Have you got your nails done? Your legs shaved, your moustache shaved, your chin hair plucked, your armpits shaved – then you are NOT natural..Make-up, false eyelashes, hair extensions.. STOP HATING..Females love to hate on eachother.. A phenomenon I’m still trying to find a valid explanation for – psychological or not. But the next time you see a girl with messed up weave & you remark “ew, look at her crusty weave” look at yourself first. I’ve had my fair share of weaves, and done countless things to my hair, relaxed, coloured, bleached, straightened etc, weave is just another form of making yourself up – because we all know that if we NEVER did anything to ourselves and went “au natural” half the pretty girls you see all over Tumblr etc. wouldnt exist…
The words of my uncle:
OK, here goes, I’m just putting out there what a whole of people are quietly saying, but want to say out loud. LADIES, enough with the hair already! We men like a good looking woman but you must understand that it takes a little more than hair to attract our attention. The more is not the merrier! I give women their props for getting their hair done RIGHT! But going to the gas station and buying that cheap stuff and just throwing it on your head ain’t cutting it. I understand some can’t afford it, cut it short or go natural then. So what I’m getting at is, people are laughing at you. Especially them old ladies that come outside with their wigs on sideways. Most of you are beautiful just the way you are. Tone it down a bit, most men prefer the natural look anyway. Men will tell you a lie to achieve their goals. By the way, everybody is not a hair dresser or stylist.OK Men! What is your reason for wearing your hair in dreadlocks? Do you really know? I doubt it, probably because everybody else is doing it. There are many reasons among various cultures for wearing locks. Locks can be an expression of deep religious or spiritual convictions, a manifestation of ethnic pride, a political statement, or be simply a fashion preference. In response to the derogatory history of the term dreadlocks, alternative names for the style include locks and African Locks. So I asked this one guy, and he said it was cool. So I asked him what was cool about poor hygiene. Not washing his nasty hair. NO ANSWER! Same reason you sag your damn pants. Not really knowing the origin of where it all started.So don’t get me wrong people, I’m simply stating what people are talking about to me. People have the right to dress and look like they please. Just as I have the right to give my opinion about it. That’s what makes us who we are. Carry on!
