How do you feel about braids and weaves?
Now before I get on my soapbox, y’all know I can’t even front. Everything from black and white cornrows (yes, white :shock:) to shellacked swoop bangs and freeze-dried curls, I’ve done it all.
So I’m definitely not a stranger to foreign hair.
However, now that I’m chemical-free, I’ve found that I’m not too fond of fake hair anymore. I think the change occurred when I started dreading.
Before then, when I was a loose natural, I may have at least entertained the idea of getting braids or maybe even donning a wig.
Now, it just seems strange and unattractive.
What’s particularly odd is my aversion to braids on grown women. I say this is odd because I wore a braided bob almost exclusively for about two years straight. And aren’t dreads almost like permanent braids? 😕
Now I don’t like to see extension braids on adults. At all. Again, I don’t know why this is.
I don’t knock anyone for what they do their hair and I’m not one who thinks natural hair is the be-all end-all. It’s just not something that appeals to me anymore.
How do you feel about fake hair? Has your opinion changed since becoming natural? Would you be open to wearing some?
