    Cool party! The truth if the matter is that anything I see
    ladies with weaves, I cringe, jeez!!!!!!! I am in a school where we
    have almost 107 nationalities. In my class, forty different
    countries and everyone tries to stand out in a unique way. Can’t
    imagine trying to be from another continent. Words cannot describe
    how I felt the day someone from “Albania” told me that she heard
    black girls use artificial hair (of course other “white” girls
    concurred) and she said it in a very condescending way. Kai, na
    that day I understand team natural people. Thank God all the
    African girls in the school came with their natural hair or at
    least braids that we are known for. Then, I see supposedly educated
    women wearing weaves like this? When I was in Nigeria, I never
    really understood the “team natural” but ever since I stepped out,
    mehn, I just wish so many things. Really, this is not about hair.
    It is about embracing who you truly are. Hair, skin, accent,
    background, body features etc. because you cannot really be who you
    are not, you can only accept who you are irrespective of where you
    find yourself and be very proud of it. Rant over!!!! but these
    seemingly “enlightened” women with weaves just put me off and I
    have rounded up for the semester, so all the time in my hands to do
    whatever I want. *dancing*

      Well, white girls wear weaves now! However, I do agree that the weave thing is now overkill especially the fact that it doesnt look natural and you see some girls wearing weaves constantly but……..live and let live!

      I know your post comes from a good place, but our “natural” self is only a platform to build upon. That’s why white folks tan, folks go to the gym, folks wear clothes, et al. It’s great to be true to thyself. However, part of that is never being overly obsessed by what others even “white” girls) think you but rather feeling good about yourself — even if it takes wearing horse hair! It’s a short and difficult (sometimes even brutish) life and every sliver of happiness helps.

    • Mz Socially Awkward...

      December 15, 2013 at 4:47 pm

      If a white girl had to ask you that question in a condescending way (with other white girls supporting her quest to know more about the mystique of black gals) then, honey, you should have snapped right back with the appropriate responses she was clearly in the mood to hear. Here are a couple of rejoinders you should note for next time:-

      “I know, right? I hear white girls do the same thing with all your extensions, hair clip-ons and things…”
      “I also hear white girls rub a lot of fake tan on themselves to look darker, what’s the deal with that?”
      “I hear many white girls don’t like their thin lips and so they get silicone injections to look like Angelina Jolie… we hear that in Nigeria and find it extremely odd…”

      And the list of trade-offs continues… it’s really not so hard to pointedly offend another race if you set your mind to it. And to clarify, much as I enjoy looking for trouble when ignorant oyibos want to get into the whole “why do black people do blah blah blah?” series of questions, I also know there are some of them who are just filled with genuine curiousity about certain facts – e.g. when I get a short weave done and they want to know if I’ve cut my hair. For questions like that, I just explain that I need a protective style for the winter months.

      My dear, there are ways to address these subjects when they come up, don’t allow anyone make you feel embarrassed…

    • Banny

      December 15, 2013 at 8:39 pm

      Lol, of course I answered but not that sort of way too. I will always defend my kind anywhere and any day but to be sincere deep down, I really wish we don’t associate ourselves with this weave thing. At least, Jolie is a white woman and not black. Wearing straight hair is just too unreal. Anyway like I said before, whatever rocks anyone’s boat. If weave suits anyone. let her go for it, as for me, Jamais!Never!

      white girls wear weaves all the time u dont see anyone shouting! please stop disgracing yourself here. asians have open eyelid surgery, they change their natural face shape. indians and filipinos bleach their skin, and arabs fix their noses in beverly hills all the time but do u hear anyone demonizing them? no its always black people that would shout and scream that someone is wearing too much weave. please if u want to cut ur hair short thats ur bizwax but if a girl wants to wear hair weaves plz dont talk crap about being “black”

      Black females are between a rock-and-a-hard-place when it comes to their physical appearance. Generally speaking, if we go “natural” as in unrelaxed hair and/or no makeup, we are described as militant, manly, ugly, etc. If we weave it up/ relax it and/or wear makeup, we have to contend with being called “fake”, wanna be white, self-hating. And add skin tone to the mix and it’s all out war. It seems that we are the only race of women that have to be constantly on the defensive or be put on the defensive about our “natural” looks or enhancing our looks. I understand the history of white oppression of blacks and it being the root cause of the foregoing problem. We, including the men, also contribute to the problem by constantly bashing each other as described above and doing it openly. We are constanly airing our dirty laundry for other races to see and using each other to mop the floor. That is why the albanian girl felt empowered to ask you about weaves. However, all that aside, human beings, not just blacks, have been enhancing and adorning themselves in different ways since the cave man. Even the concenpt of hair weaving dates back centuries. In the past women used animal hair such as horse hair to add length to their hair or to give more support to structured hairstyles. Black women in the past, before relaxers, used threading to straighten their hair and it had nothing to do with wanting to be white. The ancient Egyptians wore plenty of wigs. European aristocrats in the 1700s wore powered wigs. Today, Europeans/whites, continue to enhance themselves and it is universally acceptable no matter what it is and they are not accused of self-hate: tanning to get darker, Botox to plump thin lips, changing hair color, wearing colored contacts, booty lifts and implants to get big butts, lipsuction to remove fat, breast implants, and yes, weaves. Go figure.

      Please get over yourself Banny, so you wear you hair natural. so what. Does that make you better?. Your words sound so condescending ; as if just because your chose a different route makes you better in one kind of way.. abeg take several sits. I live in the US and several african american, white women where weaves, they have been wearing virgin hair this or that even before Nigerians went crazy about it. Its all about expression of oneself. Anyone can do so anyway they like..weaves, natural, braids whatever. I hope you dont wear makeup either … People like you are so annoying. Hiss

    And to the weave wearing ladies , can you just give it a rest ?
    Wonder what you look like without, I can bet some of you would actually look better and younger. Give it a try !

    @ banny, white women use extensions as well intact a lot. Sorry to blow your bubble. Extensions are used by women all over the world. I live abroad so I know hat am saying dear, it’s by choice you know, don’t be patronising. Beautiful guest though.

    • Banny

      December 15, 2013 at 8:35 pm

      I am not saying they don’t use extension but the ones they use are close home. If I use afro extensions, then it is close to my natural hair. Weaves are outright artificial. Anyway, in this school I am now, will never use weaves, form accent or do anything that will make me seem not too close to natural. I am not the one to start shouting about hair but I will not put down people who do. I can only wish that women don’t do that. Anyway, I can only wish a lot – black skin not associated with poverty and stuff, our leaders do what they are suppose to do, Nigerians think about their actions before shouting it is our culture etc. I can only wish.

      Do white women wear afro/kinky textured weaves?? mssschew! I don’t understand when what white people or other races did became the standard for what is right……
      Fact remains the texture of our hair is considered unattractive….simple!! now its left for you to go with the flow or embrace what God gave you. I”m not even judging you…just don’t go around giving half-baked excuses!!

    God bless you Mz Socially Awkward! at Banny, seriously?? you let them get you feeling we are the insecure ones?! oh please. I can make out a whole long list of reasons why i will not leave my natural hair exposed for one day this winter, one of which is, the weather is cold and my hair is not long/full enough to give me the warmth i need up there; now, God help the person that will open their mouth to say anything condescending about my weave(which is MY HAIR because I PAID for it!) they won’t even dare anyway, nay they won’t! for crying out loud “wigology” is even gaining more grounds worldwide than before, so what’s all the kati kati?? i’m angry sef. i can never let one shortsighted semi-literate prude create standards for me to live my life, never! mschew…team natural kooo green revolution niii (i’m not saying the natural hair thing is not a cool concept, but please it should not be attached to anything more than what it is, “a cool concept”)

    The only country where white people get away with fraud.A big breaking news about the fraudulent practices of these two women is about to break in 2014.When we first got this news we thought beef,however,it is as dirty as it comes.How they go about collecting money from companies in disguise of helpimg Nigerian girls.Most of those girls were used just for purpose of collecting money and Nigerian celebs are assisting them in this fraud.Wait for the breaking news and kina fraud will never be thesame again.And as for you Bella Naija ,i know you will not publish this.However,you can let them know that from now on they will have to watch their dirty moves.

    @banny continue to feel like a house girl and a church rat nonsense, what do you mean natural ? The white wear more weaves than we do, I live in the western world. They tan have butt injection, lip enhancement, boob job all sorts, wet in concern you, you better wake up and build your self confidence the purpose of the oyinbo us yo make you feel small and unhappy about yourself. What if you adopt accent so . Have u not heard of finishing school where people polish themselves up and upgrade. In life you upgrade and turn yourself into whoever you want yo be, or you think Kate Middleton has not been schooled . Wake up from your little mousy character and speak back yo the ignorant fool with the right answer. You can wear weave or adopt accent or take up the elite hobby. It’s a free world. Am sure you are beautiful girl. Raise up your head walk tall and adopt that upper class’s clear diction. Nonsense.
