Comment Of The Week
First off I want to say that nesh your an inspiration to me thank you for just being you. I am a black female age 19, and I wear weave. Growing up I was one of the girls who looked at other girls with the “so-called good hair” I also wanted to touch and play with any girls hair who was long and soft. Now that I have matured I understand how much of a self-esteem issue this is for young black women, although I am very sure of myself and my beauty I wear weave because personally I believe it is more managable than my own hair. I also would like to say that another reason so black women feel as if they have “bad hair” is defintely because of the media, hippop is a very big part of our culture and when we look at videos and black men have latino women or women of mixed descent in their videos it poses a problem it defenitely can make a girl feel inadequate.
