Hair Wars: To Straighten Or Not To Straighten?

August 31, 2009

Saudia Rashed, one of the beautiful ladies featured in the video below, asked me to check this out. It’s a comedy sketch about Black women in a beauty salon. Honestly, I didn’t find it too funny… maybe the natural hair vs. straightened hair is just a “blah” topic to me, and I felt the dose of hueism to be a bit much. But I did peep that horrible Dr. Miracle’s ad (I refuse to buy their hair products solely off of those disgusting ads… I’m going to make a post about that trash in the future) that makes me cringe every time I see it… so they definitely get props for that! Your thoughts?

Is this what girls think of me when I press my natural hair sometimes?
I look just like the three girls for most of the year, but sometimes I want a changeup.
I didn’t really laugh at all…I laugh when I see those horrible Dr. Miracle’s ads, though!

I didn’t get it, what was the message of that piece?

Ok that was stupid. I’m hella pissed because that “whatever they call it” video is annoying. I don’t scratch my head like that and why should a woman with natural hair trip or hate over a woman with straight hair? :@ Not nice at all…
