Playing with my hair is a hobby. Fluffy, fine natural 4a. Goal= Healthy, beautiful hair that retains its length.

Synthetic wigs do not last as long as human hair, under continuous use, so you would find it best to get a real hair wig if you want to wear it every day. If you want to be able to change the styling you must only have a human hair wig. Synthetic wigs cannot be restyled successfully since use of hot hair dryers or curling tongs will damage or melt the hair. To summarise the very best choice in wigs is a real hair lace wig. It is relatively expensive but will last for a long time if used with care.

This guy is a damn fool.. LOL! He had the nerve to say... "They the ones crazy.. not us!" Um... he TOTALLY sounds crazy. LOL!

I don't understand this whole "fit in" thing. If you are doing your job well, minding your business, at work on time, treating others with respect on the job, and look work appropriate.. errr... what other "fitting" in do you need to do... LOL!

Um.. what about those women of color that don't do braids, don't loc, and their hair can't fro.. um.. are we supposed to wear wigs too ?

Look, nothing is wrong with wearing a wig..but hiding your hair around "the white man" isn't going to solve anything... I mean give me a break.. if someone wants to discriminate against you they will..and well even if black women wear wigs all the time.. guess what.. they are still black so if that's really the underlying problem.. a wig isn't going to change that at all!

There are MORE important things that affect American blacks then errr.. hair care. LOL!

I don't get why this man thinks a wig will end racism in the work place.. I don't get why he wants all black ppl to cut their hair and be natural.. Why do we have to be against the opposite of what we prefer?? I am natural yet I don't think everybody else should be... I believe that all ppl should have the freedom of choosing what they want to do to themselves without others dictating what they should do...if u go natural.. Thumbs up... If not... Thumbs up again..

This made my eye twitch.

...It still has not stopped.
im pretty sure he is saying that if you feel the need to fit in at work and look "professional" (like many black women do) then why not just buy a wig? there isnt a need to "fake the funk" when you punch out. why put your hair thru all the extra stuff.
as u can see, im still learning!

I get what he's saying but at the same time the underlying question is why can't natural hair be considered professional enough in the first place? I know a bunch of naturals who don't have to hide their kinks and curls underneath an odd assortment of wigs so why should any one else have to? Is he trying to say natural hair (braids, locks, twists and all) isn't professional? I could understand not wearing a nasty matted fro to the office but if my hair is perfectly styled can I still not rock it?

After we've cut off all our relaxed hair like he suggested and it's grown out into beautiful curls are we still supposed to tuck it away under artificial hair and raise our kids to do the same? Will we ever be able to let our scalps breathe? I don't think this guy was thinking long-term enough cuz if so he'd better be willing dish out the cash to pay for wigs for all our bald heads smh

"these crazy peepul"eh?...so I guess I have to keep my wig on around my crazy othery husband and some family members too. cr*p!

With this brilliant plan, I'll have a wig on most of the time! Or a half wig. hmmm, not sure how this all shakes out.

I guess I can show my real hair to our usual UPS guy.

i think he's more concerned that the women remain employed & 'bringing home the bacon' than anything else.

he's trying to come off pro-natural and all "power to the people"-y

but I'm getting a pimp or poor provider vibe.

These company posers kill me. They really think we are so stupid we will believe a real person would have their first post ever as an endorsement.
