Thank you, MCC. Very interesting.

I wasn't sure kind of burlesque would be involved.......I might have been thinking more of general Vaudeville stuff.

Yesterday I went to Sallys to get my new rolling hair dryer that was on sale and I used my 15% off

Anyway I was only in there about 10 minutes or so but in that time 3 women all white came in asking for blonde hair coloring. one had hair that looked fried and was telling the clerk she wanted it silver blonde. Then another walked in retuning products and said the products didn't work and she had bleached her head twice. the clerk asked if she did her whole head and she said yes and it started breaking off. She had on a cap but underneath it looked orange. I left to pull my car around so not to carry the dryer so far and lady was gone. Clerk said it's a wonder lady has any hair because she has bleached two other times recently trying to match extentions. They said they get people running into because they want the instant light hair instead of gradual
This got me thinking. Maybe it's where I live but the vast majority of white women I know dye their hair blonde either entirely or highlights. Sometimes it looks nice healthy natural looking but mostly to me it looks very unnatural like fried dry straw. And the ones I know with straw continue to bleach. I know people who've been bleaching since middle school and high school which my mom would have never let me do that. None of my black friends in high school died nor any of my relatives until they were adults. I I know not every white woman bleaches like not every black woman relaxes but for us there is a pressure that straight is better so I'm curious if the the same blonder is better is presented to white women. I wonder is bleach is to white women what relaxers have been to black women. Is there some psyche behind it? Hmmm. I may post a thread in another section.

I would answer yes to your hypothesis, adt. Blonde hair is preferred by many men, and there is pressure to conform to a "California Girl" look: blonde, tan, skinny. Beach and bikini-ready at all times.

Another reason many white women go blonde is because it's commonly believed it's easier to hide gray hair when one is blonde. In fact, it washes many women out, since it's not a color that's universally flattering (imo).

Ita with Claudine. I am not white but I think for white women in their late 30s and older being blonde was ideal. I am now thinking that ideal for younger women is moving more toward olive skin and dark hair a la Kim Kardashian and bodywise anywhere from Gisele Bundchen with fake boobs or curvy like Scarlett Johansson or Kate Upton depending on what circles you run in. Most white women aren't born ideal versions of white women even if the societal ideal still swings more toward white than away from.

This is interesting. Not saying bleaching is necessarily self hate as I don't think relaxing always is. but I do find it sad when a 13 or 14 year old girl is already concerning herself with changing her hair color. Something has to be triggering that. IMO that's not something children should do. Nor getting breast implants, cosmetic nose jobs ect. However I can understand it. My mom always bashed my hair color growing up. Hers is black but mine is reddish brown like my dad's side. She called it $****y brown or doodoo brown. A lot of white women have told me their natural hair is mousey brown. Not sure if that's anything like $****y brown. I also notice most makeover shows straighten the curls and lighten the hair. They may darken slightly if the hair is way bleached but I don't ever recall seeing someone with naturally blonde made brown but they do brown to blonde all the time.

It's because we're all trying to be a similar ideal - white, black, Asian, Hispanic, other, etc. There are slight variations. Black and Hispanic women are allowed to be curvier as in 1940s pinup model curvy, although it seems that blonde hair white women like Kate Upton and Scarlett Johansson are acceptable and desired more in magazines geared toward men more so than the waif look which is unattainable for most women. I tjink tjis a recent thing. We're all affected by the same messages especially as it becomes more acceptable to date and marry people across racial and cultural lines and more people of color enter societal ranks once only reserved for whites.

adt, I think "dirty blonde" and "mouse brown" are probably comparable to what your mom said, without the addition of red. Regardless, they're all negative.

I think going blonde is self-hating for some women, especially redheads who don't know how to work with their coloring. Or who have had enough of being called "Gingers" and all the rudeness that goes along with that.

I feel antsy. I am not dressed like a bum today and my hair isn't completely in a bun. So that is a good start to getting my sexy back. Lol

Why are we watching SATC at work in the break room? I hope it's censored.

So usually when non naturals ask me questions about my hair I am very vague and try to give the impression I don't want to talk a whole lot about it. But today an older woman I know well was asking me question after question. How do you comb it ? How often do you wash it? finally I asked her if she was considering going natural and she insisted oh no no. So I'm thinking well why are you asking me all these freaking questions. Then I thought how sad this woman is in her 60s and knows nothing about natural hair. She said her sister had big chopped from long to extremely short and she told her she was crazy but her sister loved it. I said I must be crazy too because I chopped my relaxer off and it was one of the best decisions I ever made.

I think most women find it scary to go from long to boy short hair regardless of their texture or cultural background. I think there are many women who don't look good with a pixie or crop cut. However it is strange to not know anything about the hair that grows out of your head in its natural state. It's actually sad.
