Recently, I have made the decision to stop getting weaves and started a little experiment to observe the reactions of my peers to my new natural hair style. You can read about that here. Long story short, the reactions were a bit disappointing as I thought most of my friends would be more supportive. So, I can understand why so many black women opt for long, straight silky hair, spending thousands of dollars from thousands of beauty supply stores scattered throughout this country.
At the same time, it is saddening.
On the bright side, I also found a site called Le Coil, a tumblr site featuring snapshots of beautiful Black and mixed-raced women with natural hair. It is an inspiring, alternative look at what many Black women (as well as society) define as beautiful.
