friendly reminder that white girls wear weaves by the millions. don’t believe the hype and don’t buy the bullshit that only black women wear weave. get that weak shit out of here, jesse.
weave by the POUND!
weave by the KILOS, DAMMIT!
That’s not the point though. The point is that we are clamoring for a texture that does not grow from our scalps. White women’s weaves simply mimc their natural texture. The vast majority of ours do not.
And the suggestion that we can our straighten our hair is invalid. Straightened AA hair resembles a good yaki at best.
reblogging for the last part. ^
Aevin Dugas has spent the last 14 years growing her hair and her record-breaking natural afro has entered Guinness Book of Records.
Aevin says her hair is inspiring legions of women to ditch chemical straighteners and ‘go natural’. Her hair is 4ft 4ins around. She says that when her hair is stretched out to its complete length and pressed, it goes down to her butt.
Her jaw-dropping look brings her attention wherever she goes but it does have its drawbacks as she often gets it caught in trees, car doors and people’s earrings. Despite loving her hair, she has to tie it back while driving as it is so difficult to see past it. It can also take two days to wash and dry. She shampoos it and then uses up to five conditioners, then puts it into two French braids and from then it takes about two days to dry.
Her biggest joy is inspiring young girls to stop using chemical straighteners, which can cause long-lasting damage to hair. She said: ‘I don’t know why but there’s something very important to me about little girls appreciating my hair and then wanting to wear their hair the same. I tell them there is nothing that I did special, there is no magical formula, we are born with our hair like this.’
She’s so freaking cute I can’t even deal ok.
LOL, like modern day Rapunzel.
omg yes you queen you
Nothing will fuck up your twenties more than thinking you’re supposed to have your shit together.
"People who can’t throw something away can never hope to change anything."
do you ever feel like you’re just sort of
like all your friends go out and do things and get into relationships and like people that like them back and have fun and do stupid things with their best friends and instead of doing all that you’re just sort of this mildly entertaining thing that people take an interest in once in a while but they wouldn’t really care if it was gone
like you just sort of exist but you don’t really mean anything
