Lil Mama Talks Natural Hair & Natural Hair Hating Black Women
Lord if I don’t know a thing or two about catching flack from Black woman and men when it comes to rocking my hair in its natural “cork screw” soft curls. Just recently [last week actually] while rocking my hair in its natural textured state I was told that I looked “ugly” and I can guarantee it everything to do with my hair and nothing to do with my face because the same individual unknowingly saw a photo of me with my hair flat ironed via Instagram and da*n near fell over trying to speak to me. Hello, guy…same person!
Ironically, that very next day I was told how beautiful I looked by another natural haired sister and as I looked at her head full of beautiful hair, I couldn’t help but think that as beautiful as her face was, there was someone who would see her that day and think that she was the ugliest thing in the world because of her hair.
I have been natural for almost 3 years now and until last October [after my White friends encouraged me to rock my curls] I refused to where my hair out. Although I am still a fan of weaves, I am more comfortable going with one and have embraced the beautiful curls that grows from my scalp.
Anyhoo, not to get too far off of topic, I spotted this interview that Americas Best Dance Crew judge Lil Mama did with LoveBrownSugar.com in which she recalls the hateful comments she received from other Black women after she shared a photo of her natural hair picked out into a fro’.
“I posted the picture of my hair and people were like ‘Omg you look like a shocked slave!’ I didn’t get one comment from a white person about my hair. All of them came from the sisters that had these bullsh** helmut weaves looking like a fake a** Nicki Minaj. They don’t know who they are. And the people they’re looking to for guidance don’t know who they are either, which sucks.”
When will the war between hair textures and hairstyle preferences end? Don’t we have enough drama and issues plaguing our community? I have no issues with perms, weaves, braids, natural styles, etc. as hair is hair in my opinion. But this hate between the two needs to stop…
