      Its a Black female thing jor! The way Black Americans obsess over hair is even worse! Calling it ‘Good hair, bad hair, nappy head, kitchens etc. They start relaxing their children’s hair from age 3 and 4 … as soon as it turns hard and ‘nappy’ as they say! So pls give Naija babes a break if they want to spend their hard cash as adults on Brazillian weaves! Who started it first? No be Black Americans! ptcheew!

    Na wa for people surrounding the hair table. I am ashamed! I’m sorry but we are extremely insecure about hair. No one can tell me otherwise anymore. The fact some Nigerians can tell a buddy of mine that she has slave hair/ Kunta Kinte hair because she wears her natural hair shows that we are very ignorant about ourselves. We obviously don’t like who we really are and would rather be someone else (non-black). There is no superior race why can’t we all see that we all should celebrate our differences.
    I am not against weaves at all but against the decision of many women wearing them in order to boost their confidence/ feel beautiful.

      Why are we so self-righteous when we want to judge Nigerians? Whats wrong with going for the hair? Arent you guys the same ones that criticize pple on this site for having hair that looks like Bird’s Nest? Or Dead Cat? So if they want the long, silky variety… please let them. Then we girls know that its a class thing and a guy thing! We feel if we want the guys to check us out we had better not be seen dead in dreads or natural hair! Its true so dont suck your teeth! Or else why would Musicians both Nigerian and foriegn be going for the light-skinned/white girl with the flowing hair with wind in her face? Oh and even Lil’ Willow said it.. dats right! ‘I whip my hair back and forth’! hahahaah!

      Sorry Bey, but I have been an ardent reader of comments on BN. in fact, I enjoy the comments as much as I enjoy the post proper.This is because they are both hilarious and sometimes sensible. Pray do tell, where and when someone referred to another’s hair as “dead cat” or “bed nest”?On which post? Obviously, u made that out urself ; possibly for the sake of putting up an “interesting comment”.

      Whatever ur reasons may be for “cooking up” such, I am indifferent about hair. Whether fake or real, suitability is what is key.

      I’ve got you bey on this one. i mean going for brazilian or whatever weave shouldnt be a big deal .Go natural if you want and leave those who dont want to alone! ahn ahn tired of all these smh remarks on hair if you ask me i’d say the confidence problem comes from you. I leave abroad and as a nigerian you dont expect i leave my real hair out during winter? (and no i’m not oiling my hair 10times a day) and while i’m at it how about going for something as soft and silky as brazilian hair. and even if the weather wasn’t harsh and i want to….. if you really want to play natural then wear iro n buba to work everyday, dont use any make-up,… i admire pple going natural i wish i had the patience but oops

      Never! it’s not just hair! Whether we want to admit it or sit down and think, hair defines us. There is a reason why hair is considered a part of beauty. There is a reason why there are a good number of women gathered around that hair table. You can’t say it is just hair when some people’s cannot leave their homes without having their hair fried, pressed, and laid.
      You can’t say it is just hair when some people call your hair Kunta Kinte/ slave hair because you are natural/ or some girls would starve to get their hair done (weave). Don’t say it is just hair!

      sorry, but are you saying natural hair is not a good thing cos if i read you right, i’m afraid you are wrong.
      p.s “hair” doesn’t define everyone, some people can live without weaves.
      it is high time women should start realising how beautiful our natural hair looks like. instead, we are afraid to let loose because of press, men, low self esteem.

    I used to eagerly clink on the link to see pictures from an LPM event, but the last few have been huge disappointments. The picture reveal an event that is nothing more than an indoor flea-market. There is no presentation or organization. Some of the pictures even show trash and debris under the display tables. The signs are handwritten as in “free taste” and look so tacky. OK, enough of the critique, now for some helpful suggestions: 1) Presentation, presentation, presentation. There should be a theme and every vendor should work around the theme; 2) No photographs until everyone is set up. We shouldn’t see vendors with brooms in their hands 3) Vendors should invest in display cases that highlight their goods, not detract from them e.g. wire-hangers. Just some thoughts. Look forward to the next event, because LPM is really a great idea. Cheers.

    @ Jah, Bless you for this. I’m tired of talking. Its more like ‘no foreign hair, no confidence’. I pity Babes more especially, those clear their Bank accounts just to belong to the ‘Nigerian Human Hair Society’ and those who get duped into buying fake Human Hair SMH. God please help us.

    December 22, 2011 at 9:05 pm

    I agree with you Jah…but the truth is that there is an advantage in being able to change their hairstyles. Secondly no one bothers with their natural hair since it can’t seem to grow past shoulder or chin length for most people. Its also hard to maintain your natural hairstyle as you have to constantly straighten, roller set or tong which can be tiring. So for busy workers it is worth fixing a weave and a beautiful one at that too.

      Someone needs to hit the books and blogs about how natural hair ‘works’ for the professional woman and how long it can grow if looked after (not buried under wefts of someone else’s hair)…

    • Jah

      December 23, 2011 at 10:52 am

      I don’t know about relaxed hair but our natural hair grows really long when we take care of it. Genetics, health issues etc also affect hair growth. Some non blacks have issues with growing their hair too so it’s not only black people. Relaxer weakens the hair e.g Iya Eko/ Lagos (disappearing hairline), reduced/ stagnant hair growth, thinning of the hair (I’ve seen some people hold on to their remaining few strands of hair) etc.
      Not every woman wearing a weave is insecure about her hair or self, some people wear weaves to try something different. But I hear a lot of women say black hair is a curse and they would rather wear weaves/perm their hair. Na Oyinbo hair better pass for dem.
      Black natural hair is difficult to maintain because we are ignorant of our own hair. Why would you constantly straighten/curl your natural hair? Constant heat will damage your hair. There are other healthier and less stressful ways to maintain your hair. You can google that. Weaves are stressful e.g you run from the rain; It stiffens when you are in a cold climate; you avoid the wind; you hate swimming; you can’t wash it often because it will not last; weaves tend to stink; you can’t wear a pony tail with a full weave; you also have to straighten/curl it; every two weeks or so, you sit in the salon for some hours to cornrow and sew new tracks on your head. And please don’t talk about lace wigs. The only person who has been able to wear a lace wig without looking like a geisha/ sumo wrestler is Beyonce.

    So having straight hair is ‘classier’ and appeals more to guys? Not only are you absolutely wrong, your right to vote and give opinions should be taken away from you until… never. Your mentality is absolutely dangerous to mankind, especially the black race.

    Ladies, ladies, put down ur swords, guns, whatever you have and seize the fire!!! I stay in the U.S.(Michigan) and I always rock my expression Afro weave-on during the winter and boy!! do I get compliments!!! Tons & tons of it because my colleagues at work (both whites and African Americans) think it’s my real hair! ha! ha! ha! And during summer, I rock my ghana braids. Africans we don’t know the worth of what we have ’till it’s gone lol!!! See the Ladies all over the table for brazillian weave-ons made from what??? BULLSHIT!!!
    Let us be proud of where we come from and who we are. I tell anyone who askes that I’m a Nigerian and I’m proud of it irrespective of the bad global image we have. So what!! It’s either you like me as a person or you listen to all the stupid stereotypes the media has to offer, who cares!!!!
