Shameful Gabby Douglas Hair Haters

Like Tree45Likes

I saw her picture before reading about her hair bashing. When I looked at her all I thought was that she looks very pretty, and has the type of face that looks great with hair pulled back, that's all. How else could her hair possibly be done considering what she does? I don't get it, I can't imagine any other hairstyle in her position. There's nothing wrong with it at all, and especially nothing ugly, and people are saying it's not a beauty competition/red carpet event, but in all honesty, even if it was a beauty contest, I still wouldn't see anything wrong with her hair. There's so much light in her, how could anyone see anything ugly about her at all? Those who do don't see the whole, just some fragment, and even that appears distorted to them. Whatever you see is a reflection of you. Someone's reaction and opinion to and of what they see says more about them than about the seen. Someone telling someone else they are ugly is in essence the same as calling themselves ugly. All is one and inseparable.

Many black women consider any sign of kink whether new growth or water reversion to be unkempt and nappy. So when Gabby started sweating and her edges reverted then the haters started bashing her. They felt she should have plastered her hair down with strong hold gel which is very unhealthy and I know several people whose hair has broken off that way. I know it may not make sense to everyone because it is kind of a cultural thing.
From what I can tell she already uses gel and clips to smooth it back tightly. Every time I've seen her, all I thought regarding her hair was "Hmm, she has a lot of hair". Other than that, her skills and talent have been priority.

If all that people can muster up to criticize that 16 yr old girl over is her edges not being slicked down enough, then she is doing all the right things. I just really don't understand how a few tweets turned into media coverage? I'm glad I missed all this foolishness. This is the downside to the internet and real-time access/social media. The fact that someone would turn tweeted comments into "news" is mystifying. So many other things out there in the world that warrant coverage imo. Hyping the whole thing up makes all black women look like idiots imo. It's bad enough that we have to deal with the confusion and politics with wearing our hair natural vs relaxed vs weaves. But a [relatively] few people make some comments and now that's the focus in "Black America"?? That's the kind of stuff "we" value as a "people"?! Have a stadium of seats, please.

end rant.

I wonder what they have to say about Sanya Richards-Ross. I thought she was beautiful but I couldn't believe someone would want to run with all that long hair (or extensions) flowing down her back. didn't stop her from winning though
So... Basically she should be wearing She'naynay wigs to make these ghetto b*tches happy? She's already permed,(or at least straightened) what the hell do they want?

"Gel and a brush." Speaking for myself personally, if I used either of those things my hair would break off like crazy. And from all the pizzermed ladies I meet, the ones with stubby ponytails love those things the most.

"She gotta represent." Please. Ya'll need to SIT.

I hope Gabby knows better than to pay any attention to the ignorant comments on social media and spends some quality time with Dominique Dawes. Seriously, Dominique looks gorgeous with her natural hair, plus she knows all about the whole 'trying to keep the perm going while training for hours and hours every day' thing.

Forget those fools, Gabby! You're smart, beautiful, talented, and we just love you!!

Peace

instead of a comment on cruel people that take time out to make fun of her hair, can I just say… I think her hair is beautiful.

ETA: Btw, I'd made several tweets of congrats and saying how great I thought she was, but after seeing the soc med on people being negative about her hair, I went back and tweeted specifically about how beautiful she looks

"Nothing is going to change. I'm going to wear my hair like this during beam and bar finals. You might as well just stop talking about it."
You tell 'em, Gabby.
