Seriously, social media is full of people asking stupid questions!! It makes me sad…
The other day, as I was scrolling through my Instagram’s explorer page and I saw this picture with 3 photos of the (same) (gorgeous) woman with her hair in a MASSIVE Afro. It came with the question: “would you date a woman with an Afro?”… yeah, SAME!
I want to rephrase the question for them: would you date a woman with her 4c hair in its natural state?
Because really that’s the question they asked. I think they didn’t realise that a black woman with an Afro is like a Caucasian woman with her hair brushed down. It is nothing else but a NATURAL hairstyle.
My Afro is what my hair looks like when I comb it out. The same way, I could easily have braids, cornrows, bantu knots, twists and all this kind of jazzy hairstyles.
Cut us some slacks. You are not dating a woman for her hairstyle. If it is the case, well… let me tell you about that deception that is coming your way very fast. The afro can and will most likely change.
Now, it could well be that they were talking about natural hair in general. Maybe they amalgamated the two terms “Afro” and “natural hair”. In this case, it would be a whole other discussion for another day. Again, I could rephrase it in many ways to show the person how thick they sound.
Excuse me but I get really sensitive when it comes to black women with 4c hair… especially the bashing of it.
So please, I’m begging you, wear your hair with all the pride in the world. This hair came out of your scalp- own the life out of it! Please!
I could go on and on on this topic but that’s not what we are trying to do!
Thank you for reading and until next time, be empowered, always queen with the big crown…. I see you babe!
