Do Black Men Still Relax Their Hair?

I know black men did this back in the day, but do some do it now, in this day and age? I was thinking about this when I saw James Brown.

One of the last times I went to a salon, there was a guy in there. He proceeded to get a touch up and then got some fingerwaves. I was in awe.
I have kinks, coils and curls on this head.

yes they certainly do. last week i was sitting with SO at the barber shop - one guy was getting a texturizer touch-up. and another guy with about 15 inches of hair was getting it colored a light brown! and on top of that, another guy was getting his eyebrows waxed. i kid you not. i had to pinch myself and check with my SO to make sure we weren't in a beauty salon!

*Amneris, that barber does sound a little off... why would someone offer you of all people a jheri-curl? the weave i could see maybe, lots of women get weaves as a protective style... but a jheri curl? eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeewwwwwwww! :x
