For the final part of this debate series I thought I'd have some fun and ask, is it ever right?
1. To tell a curly that her hair looks terrible?
I do think it is quite mean spirited to walk up to people on the street and give hair advice, however, I think that it is a different case when people place pictures up and ask for comments. I rarely if ever see a negative critique of any natural or curly hair pictures.
One album that I stumbled upon yesterday had a couple of pics which were actually seriously bad (bad styling, terrible really). The lady in the picture looked like she was going to cry and was highly critical of the style but other naturals rallied around to say the pictures weren't bad and they would even have the style themselves (No you wouldn't, liars!!). I think it is natural to want to raise someone's spirits but I really don't think it is right to tell a blatant lie. What if this woman did this style again, she looked a mess and knew it, why lie to her? I think something negative can be said with kindness or is this not possible?
2. To buy a new conditioner out of boredom?
I am toying around with the idea of buying some cholesterol because Moni, one of the regular commenters, mentioned that she uses it with very long lasting results. I'm also thinking about the garnier fructis line because I saw this on another blog (helen chambers I think). I do like the herbal essences line but I'm ready to try something new, I guess I can always go back or is this just the beginning of the descent into pjism??
3. To reprimand people you don't know?
I hate, yes I said hate, people who put weaves on babies! I hateeeeeee it so much. I have seen it now three times in one week and what annoyed me is that one of those little girls was still in diapers. I sometimes really wonder what goes on in the mind of a mother of a one year old who thinks the child should have waistlength straight hair. Seriously one year is not long enough to have grown that much hair?! I cannot imagine the future complexes this child will develop. Anyway unfortunately I am too conservative to scream at people I don't know but sometimes I wish I could.
Have you ever asked yourself any of these questions?
