Yeah, let them wear whatever type of hair they like, but don't be surprised if you get weird looks from people.

They can wear fake hair if they want, but I find it upsetting when they wear it because they cannot learn to love/like their own natural hair and are using fake hair as well...fake comfort.

Reminds me of black women so often wearing weaves since a young age - and that too, weaves from a total different style and texture of hair.


Some black women, not all of them. In the UK although we do have some black women who wear weaves the ones that were renowned for long hair extensions and lots of fake long lashes are women of full European descent.

I've never used perms, hair extensions or had hair pressed/flat ironed. People I gravitate to also don't follow such a lifestyle. I have a niece whose natural hair I haven't seen since she was a teen. She's into expensive Rapunzel tresses weaves 24/7 which is sad. She even does the extra long fake eyelashes and heavy make up. Naturally she's a beautiful girl and doesn't need all of that. She's got almond shaped eyes and high cheek bones. I hope one day she finds her way and I get to see that lovely thick kinky curly hair again. If she wants she can grow it long with a lot of care and regular conditioning treatments.

She went into the hairdressing business.

Yes, I should have elaborated more and said something along the lines of "some" though in reality, it is far more than "some". In fact, in certain countries where blacks are not the biggest population, they still (black ladies that is) account for the race that spends the most on their hair, and contributes to the most sales in the hair industry.

On the other hand, I do think the natural hair movement for the black female community has made great strides in the past years, though weaves and fake hair still remain massively popular unfortunately.

Again - this is one of those things (like double eye lid surgery/"western look" for Asians, etc.) that is really unfortunate. People should learn to be happy with their own features. Variety is the spice of life, and if you spend all your time trying your very best to look like another race, you are never truly going to be happy and you are setting a truly horrible example for your children who will only see you in your "fakery" and never learn to love themselves.

It is poisonous.

But is it really their fault? In a world where European beauty standards are the norm you can't really blame someone for trying to change their ethnic features...

Don't blame the victim, like your last sentence is really ignorant

I don't feel like my last sentence is "ignorant". People cannot keep blaming someone else - at some time, they've got to acknowledge they've also had a part to play in contribution to well, whatever.

Asian society at large has contributed and continues to contribute to this phenomenon what with their advertising even to the youth about plastic surgery, putting so much social pressure on how the outward appearance is, and constantly putting up European standards of beauty (though avoiding such things as "tanning".) No on asked Asia to do this, no one forced them. What started as an appreciation for some other people's looks has grown not only into a billion dollar industry and an obsession, but also a way of life and thought process. It has also become a growing racism, and contributed to the massive shallowness of certain Asian societies

Constantly putting up another race so much, is putting down your own and that can be seen in the massive plastic surgery industry for double eyelids/"western look", etc. What Asian society should be doing is encouraging their own standard of beauty in their own non-European looking countries. People would learn to appreciate their own fine features, and learn to be happy with them instead of constantly idealizing another's features, and trying to become something they are not.

Asia has thousands upon thousands of years of culture, custom and beauty ideals. That should have been backing enough against this silly obsession. Apparently not though, and Europe cannot be blamed for this nonsense. Asian society and media put this out there, and they alone should be blamed for what this has spiraled into.

Anyway, I think what makes the "transition" so easy for Asians, is because in Asian society light skin has always been prized. The fact that Europeans have light skin and sometimes non-dark eyes/hair just adds to the ideal of the aforementioned basis.

I'm not asking you to agree with me or whatever. This is all just my personal take and feel on this.

Good day.

When you are a man and you start losing your hairs, its an embarasing thing. I know guys in their 20s and they lost half of theit hairs. One guy was 30 when his hair got all grey. So yes, coloring your hairs or wearing a wig is fine for me as long as it doesn't look fake. Many actors and models are wearing wigs all the time. It doesn't have to look "fake". Cheap wigs do look fake tough.

I'm sorry, ignore my other long reply to you. I was replying to someone else who has deleted their comment, and I accidentally put that reply to them in your quote.

Sorry for the mixup!!

But yeah, take off the Asian bit and my reply pretty much fits in to what you and I were conversing about.

Sorry about the confusion.

Do whatever you want! I wouldn't wear fake hair on a everyday basis, but if that's what you want to do, by all means go for it!

i have no problem with wigs but i hate that alot of african american women/girls would wear weaves alot. I hate it when people in my school would ask me if i have a weave or not and ill say no! Plus weaves are NOT OK whoever wears weaves are not ok to me. I wish weaves didnt exist and i wish that everyone on the earth had straight hair instead of it being different types.


What??Why do you have a problem what others do,is it any of your concern?Also, that last statement about wanting everyone on earth to have straight hair really rubs me the wrong way. The magazines and media setting straight hair as the standard of beauty is the reason why many wear weaves in the first place.


I have a problem of what others do because i am an african american girl and I hate that a lot of females of my race wears weaves, You cant understand how annoying it is when half of the planet either thinks you're wearing a wig or a weave! Caucasian girls never have to worry about those things and I envy them so much


Everyone's entitled to their own opinion, but I wouldn't be so bold as to say that "Caucasian girls never have to worry about those things." I can totally empathize with what you're saying though in regards to it being annoying. I can't say anyone has ever thought I'm wearing a wig or a weave, since I'm as white as they get, but I have long hair (around my navel), and people constantly yank on my hair and ask me if I'm wearing extensions. It happens more or less on a weekly basis. But do I hate every other white girl out there wearing extensions? Nope. Everyone has different problems to deal with.


ok
