I follow the group Natural Hair on Facebook. Being a black woman who is constantly looking for the right hair products and cute hair styles, it’s nice to have a place where women are sharing tips/stories daily on hair – natural hair. The only “chemical” that has touched my hair is that from putting highlights in:
I may discontinue to do this because it has contributed to my severely dry hair, which is…not cute and annoying to deal with. Although, not everyone who chemically treat their hair has dry hair. Some people know how to keep up with it. I don’t.
Ok, enough about me. So yes, one woman posted this on the Natural Hair facebook page:
“….Ever since i went natural more white men hit on me than black men…anyone else experience that lol” – Christine A.
I thought that was interesting. Per all of the comments on this post – many, many women who have gone natural HAVE experienced this! I have to admit, I am shocked. Not that less black men hit on these women, but that more white men do. Some black men, in my opinion, are very judgmental towards black women and their hair. Hmm…I guess white men love the “afrocentrism” that natural hair represents. Questions that come to mind: is this just a preference thing, or something to really analyze?
Please, share any thoughts you may have on this! 🙂 Thanks for reading.
