What Men Like...
This month Essence magazine online is weighing in on the whole, "Good Hair" vibe by asking 15 random black men what type of hair they like their women to wear. You will be interested in the results. On average the majority of the men stated they liked natural hair on their women; and the majority if not all men stated they strongly disliked the weaves.
What I found interesting is that a few stated they liked and favored the straight look on their women, adding, "I can do without the nappy stuff." Wow, they can do without the nappy stuff huh? The hair that God gave us? One man stated he wasn't opposed to it, he just didn't like to see the "nappy stuff" all the time. Well alrighty then...
While I understand everyone is entitled to their own opinion, Essence magazine should be celebrating the woman's right to choose. They should be uplifting us and encouraging us to rock our natural God given hair instead of pushing the opinions of men in our faces. Hell that's why most of our women are burning their scalps to death is to please some man out there.
I am proud of you Queens, for taking your hair matters into your own hands, for not allowing others to choose your standards of beauty. And while the majority of people, not just our own black men may not appreciate or encourage our natural thang, you have us here at the Queendom and other natural hair sites like Afrobella, I Love My Locs, etc.
We applaud you and will stick by you. Rock on natural sisters, rock on!
Stay Blessed & Happy Locing!
