adthomas is this not a hair forum? you may see things over and over again but weren't you once beginning your natural journey? It's like when people see a learner driver and then people criticize them for driving too slow and we have all been there once, help people. Who is jealous of my hair? I don't think there is anything to be jealous of, I just felt the line of questioning was more along the lines of an interrogation like how dare I even consider my hair is looser in some parts. What is wrong with 4a hair? in my opinion nothing at all I have some. The whole good hair thing really is not a thing in the UK nor do we have a whole array of descriptions of different skin colours on black people. I am black simple as and a Welsh born Ghanaian.
But I am just going to agree to disagree because having bias about who can say certain things is kind of weird you are all entitled to your opinion as am I but it doesn't mean our opinions are factual. I asked a simple question that turned into something more. I will never conform to what people think I should act like whether I am new or considered the underdog or whatever . But if anyone else has anything else to say go ahead, but as far as I am concerned this thread is toast I now know my hair type(s) now the purpose has been fulfilled.
I wish you all luck & happiness in your lives & your natural journeys.
I didn't say anyone shouldn't/couldn't ask their hair type. I said a lot of people get annoyed by seeing it over and over which is why many people including yourself don't get many responses. Also there is a sticky is 3c to keep people from making individual threads about hair type by the way.
You have a right to say what you want. I felt and others agreed that some of your posts were confusing which you apparently don't want to acknowledge. I think it was unfair to jump down someone's throat for misinterpreting something that was unclear.
You said you don't have the "good hair" issue where you are but some of us do so I was letting you know your statements could be considered offensive to some people. If your intent was to piss people off then that's fine too. I wasn't sure which is why I said "maybe I'm taking it the wrong way" when you said your hair is a "present from some previous ancestors" and "sorry you wanted all my curls to be tighter 4a". sounds condocending. I thought I was being helpful to make you aware of this so you could clarify because some people might get ticked off and not want to respond to your future posts. You're done. I'm done. Best of luck.
i would've been inclined to think that you honestly did believe that your relaxed pieces really were your natural hair if you hadn't jumped on the defensive so quickly. someone asked a question for the sake of clarification purposes, and you automatically start ranting like they accused you of murder... me thinks thou protest too much...
Excatly. It's why I've grown to dislike these kinds of threads but the outcome always seems to end up like this thread here.
