What Is Good Hair?

Can someone explain this to me? Also, what's the "white girl flow?" These are non-malicious, open-minded questions, I don't judge people, I just want to listen to different opinions.

Good hair comes from healthy scalp.

Healthy scalp comes from lack of chemical damages.

I still can't believe she spend over $20,000 in the saloon. She could have saved that to buy a car or a house.

People are so good good with solutions, they can find several ways to waste money.

I'm trying not to derail this thread so this is the last time I plan to address this judgmental or non judgmental case. Seeing a white thing and calling it white is not being judgmental, at least not in the context that I'm using it. Making unconfirmed, useless inferences is what I mean when I talk about judgments. As opposed to seeing something and being sure about it, being judgements - again, in this context - are mostly based on assumptions.

Of course everyone is judgmental. Don't be silly. One way or another we make judgments on a daily basis. Ponder on that.

Like I said, there is good as well as bad judgment. who knows if it's the right thing to do? Do we as humans always do the right thing? you think about that.

If indeed EVERYONE - 100% of the people in this world - is jugdemental, is it the right thing to do and should you do the same? Ponder on that.

Seriously? You know everyone and you know everyone's judgmental, can I have the power that helps you know how people think? I tell you as someone that has been around many of these people that majority of them are not phony.

lol ^^ abeg, you can know phony people sometimes. People always claim not to be judgmental but the truth is, everyone is judgmental.

people only complain when you judge them in a bad way. If it was a good judgment, they wouldn't consider you judging them rather giving a compliment.

@topic, bad hair has nothing to do with race, it has to do with the way one keeps one's hair. All these people yelling "I love straight hair" should know that blacks aren't the only ones without straight hair, some white and Latino girls have naturally curly hair and for it to be straight, they are vigorously straightened with hot iron.

Why do you feel to judge who's being phony and who's not? How do you know who's phony or not?

I think the main issue should be how the hair is kept and what makes the woman comfortable.

AA's tend to judge each other unnecessarily.  Caribbean folks are phony with that motherland BS.

OR black women could stop waiting for black men "to comeback" and go out of "boundaries" too. which thankfully they've started doing which is why marriage within the black community is increasing a little bit compared to before.

Black men arent moving anywhere . . . there are still millions of black men who will have only a black woman. The only problem i see is that the cream of successful black men tend to prefer white or latin women thus shrinking the pool available to the black woman.

But I'm telling you women can change this themselves. If all black women decide to stop harming themselves, black men will move to Latin and White girls but they'll always come back. And when they try coming back, y'all should reject them.

that's why I get annoyed when Carib men start that "I want my natural black queen" bullshit.

Most times they're off screwing someone with "smooth hair, light skinned" blah blah. Nothing wrong with that of course, just stop being hypocritical

even Bob was cheating with a high yella female

They're all full of poo.

Isnt it ironic that TV commercials feature women with natural black hair than hiphop stars do in their videos?

That's where you separate those with inferiority complex and those without. I still believe there's a difference between wanting to comb your hair without breaking combs and wanting to have straight hair to look white. I have aching scalps now because I combed my hair. Who really wants that?

what they truly want is hair like that of the average white girl. The best hair award actually shld go to the latino women.

You are a black woman, maybe that's what you want, but it's definitely not many other black women want. What you are implying is that it is based more on "comb-ability" than how it looks but as you can see in the video, it has more to do with how it looks and majority of them want it to look White, Asian, Spanish or Indian, anything apart from African.

Before I forward with this reasoning, I would like to thank the LORD GOD, YESHUA CHRISTOS of Nazareth, for blessing my spirit with the little knowledge that I have. I am not ashamed or shy to seek for more from him.

Now, let's discuss the things that have led to everyone getting "used to it." If the 400+ years Israelites slaved in Egypt is equated to the 400+ years black people were slaves, then the years in the wilderness is what we, as black people, are currently facing. The only difference is that we're not in a physical wilderness, but in a mental/psychological one.

Desiring and yearning for vanity is discouraged by many religions of the world for a reason. The Holy Bible tells Christians to seek first the Kingdom of God, Buddhism encourages followers to reach a state of tranquility or absolute inner calm where they long for nothing, this is because longing for things will not only make a person unhappy and miserable, the person will also do irrational and silly things. When the Israelites yearned for food, they stopped moving forward; because black people are now burdened by the (often silly) things we crave for, we have stopped moving forward.

This is babylon's little trick but those of us who see with our minds see through it. Because celebrities on TV have straight hair, black people desire straight hair. Straight hair isn't the only thing, it is just one out of many useless things black people have been thought to thirst for. Of all races of the world, mostly black people have this kind of hair, so we are mostly the ones affected by this thirst for straight hair. I'm not telling you there's a conspiracy against us,  but judge for yourself.

Let's consider what makes good hair good. Why do we have nappy hair? This trait must have evolved in Africans to serve a specific adaptive purpose, that I don't know yet but I'm working on. So this kind of hair is good for us, while that kind of hair is good for them. This simple task of putting things in perspective is what many of us cannot do, so we have decided to destroy what's good for us. In destroying what's good for us, we are only doing harm to ourselves - health-wise; in spending money to get what's bad for us, we are doing harm to ourselves - financially; in desiring things that are unrealistic and vain, we are doing even more harm to ourselves - psychologically. Wake up daughters of Zion and evaluate the positive and negative consequences of straight hair, judge for yourself and you'll see how the negative consequences outweigh the positive.

When people say good hair, they refer to Spanish, white, Indian hair. . etc. I've heard lots of black people say that. Or people of mixed race say something like "my father is black and my mom is Spanish so you know I got that good/nice hair" pretty ignorant if you ask me.

The Taheeyda (Sp) chick on that Tyra show is pretty confused herself, talking about how she doesn't know how people will perceive her. sounds like low self esteem to me. If you want to do something, why do you freaking care about people's opinions?. Not saying she should or should not go natural but she already claimed she has debts all because of hair products. how silly can one get?

I watched this thing again and it's worth watching even though it's over sensationalized babylonian crap, but it shows you how far we've come. Misplaced priorities much?

I think what black women yearn for is soft, [i]combable [/i]hair and not really straight hair.
