I believe people should be able to make their own choices about what goes on or in their bodies, but I respect what this preacher is doing. He is actually trying to help his congregation improve their lives.
I used to live in St. Louis where there is a large poor, inner city African American population. I used to work and volunteer where I interacted with this population a lot. It always surprised me how much money women would spend on their hair - $100s, when they were on government assistance and didn't have a job or one that paid a living wage. Beauty is important, but living within your means is more important.
A lot of poor and middle class people of all races lack common sense when it comes to money. They're always one paycheck away from losing everything. And it isn't always because they don't make enough; they spend too much on the wrong things.
