Being raised, I needed always asked myself and sometimes my mother why my woolly hair can hardly be tamed like those white little girls with pigtails I see within the movies. And anytime my mom would pull a comb through my kinks, I would personally cry as well as look for a hiding place so I would not have to endure the pain in the teeth of your comb through my kinks. Often than not, to appease me, my mother would take me for the hair dresser to unwind my course hard- to- manage hair; in Africa this is known as the stubborn hair. But soon that which was as soon as a full, fluffy healthy black cloud transformed into discolored strands falling lifeless from my head as a consequence of too wrong and too frequent application by my hair dresser. And So I lost all my crowning glory. And therefore was as i found my solution: Your Hair piece. Today, I am one of several African women that want to wear “hair-that-does-not-belong-to-me”. But, can this justify our craze for brazilian virgin hair?
What baffles me will be the rate from which African women these days have got a likening on the Brazilian, Peruvian, Malaysian, Indian hairs. Lets not discuss how expensive these extensions are today. Don’t get me wrong, I am just not against it because I myself get in for such hair extensions. I used to be recently speaking with a male friend of mine and then he believed to me “Edna, You may call me anything you want and feel the highest pity for my girlfriend however it is exactly what it is…. I will never pay for the expense of weaves, wigs or Brazilian hair of any kind for my woman and so i is going to be extremely proud if my sisters’ boyfriends and husbands perform same. Those things are way too damn expensive”.
I remember when everything the typical woman had was her natural hair, and attachments were once-in-a-while luxuries. Considering my mum in their beautiful wedding gown, along with the tiara on the full curly hair, I can only ask where those times go. Today, it’s almost unthinkable for the bride simply to walk along the aisle without hair extensions. Make that Brazilian Hair.
Some in the past, a girl would only braid her hair just before Christmas. Wigs were utilized by the rich and political figures who desired to look classy. Unfortunately, many occasionally ended up like Tina Turner with a bad hair day. For the religious sisters who couldn’t stand the idea of using whatever they called ‘the mermaid spirit’s hair,’ wool started in handy.
Genevieve Nnajis, Yvonne Nelsons, Yvonne Okoros, Nadia Buaris and Jackie Appiahs have done absolutely nothing to assist the situation. We have seen these stars at movie premieres, inside the movies, with the shopping centers in fact everywhere flaunting their good Brazilian hairs. Now, African women walk the streets of Accra, Lagos and Johannesburg with weaves of all kinds from your Brazilian hair, Malaysian hair, Indian hair, Bohemian hairs and all sorts of kind of hairs named by their section of origin.
Precisely what is even sad is that, all these weaves come from all of the aforementioned places except Africa. African women even walk around with weaves including 8, 10, 12, 14,16 to 24 inches or even more inside the hot sweltering African sun. Some are installing these hairs simply to get that compliment, “Oooh girl, you have some good Brazilian hair there!” You know everybody has that friend. Meanwhile, they actually do not really be aware of distinction between these weaves.
I ran across a lady who walked right into a salon and wanted a big difference of hairdo. Mind you, she had on hair extensions so long as the Nile that has been probably 2 weeks old and she bought 2 items of 24-inch weave-ons. I found myself a little envious of her since she can afford to buy a whole new piece every 2 weeks and I couldn’t. She brought a 33dexjpky of the celebrity with her hoping the stylist could give her that same hair look . I was expecting her simply to walk by helping cover their her pretty long hair. When the stylist was done her, the hair in her head was half the duration of what she’d bought. Amazing, she can afford to chop everything Brazilian hair all inside the pursuit to look like some celebrities who could afford more hair weaves than she could.
Unless my little analysis was flawed, I realized that most natural-haired women save decent money in hair expenses in comparison to the frequent patrons of hair weaves, with the inflated price of the weave, the fee to get it on, and the danger of not liking the result, taking it off weekly later and putting on another one. I suppose some husbands and boyfriends will be the ones with weeping wallets, because for that big hair spenders, so long as the funds keeps flowing they may still continue buying one Brazilian weave after another.
