It's remarkable that some ladies have such fake hair that is (allergic to water) fixed on top of their natural hair for so long to the extent that their scalps begin to form itching dandruff as their natural hair ooze out for mercy
What do you ladies make of this?
And for the guys: do you see wigs attractive or sexy?
Quite interesting, and some reality in it.

Black African Women not being proud of their hair can also be related to Inferiority complex, when you check some black American homes the girls with their Natural hair get bullied a lot by their peers in school and when you check some offices the women are not allowed to show off their Natural hair.
It is not like they are not proud of their natural hair, of course we are but they attached wigs and all just to look more attractive. The natural hair is very beneficial to us because we even plait it, retorch it and even style it of which is very much beautiful but we use wigs most times to just look more attractive like i said earlier. Please take note of the "more" The natural hair makes us look attractive too but the wigs adds to it and even the makeup ladies wear too. So we are proud of our hair guys. Well, if i was a guy i will find her natural look more attractive because that is what i will have to look unto almost everyday of my life so i should be able to love it and live with it without problem, but i will also appreciate her when i see her on wig and makeup which should be on rare and special occasions not just everyday. Our hair, our pride, our glory! We are proud of our natural hair.
Hahahaha, I beg to partially disagree, although some black African women are actually proud of their natural hair, because most of them are beautiful, but they don't show it often maybe because of the texture, natural hairs can be so strong, stubborn and causes a lot of pain to maintain, so they just prefer to go through that kind of stress in seasons in order not to be pained every morning or every two days, and I hope you wouldn't disagree that some black African women actually look prettier with the wigs, weavons or braids on, than they look on their natural hair. Its also more exhausting especially when she doesn't know how to style her hair herself .. Hahaha, at this point, she will just resign to the wigs Hahaha

Am glad to see many people giving out their Views here. This is true to some extent and also not true.
If you were also proud of your natural hair as a man, you wont be barbing it.
There are numerous reasons why women wear artificial hair.

I feel you do not really understand women. When I read the post, I had to go back to clarify if you were a man or a woman. When I saw that you were male, what you posted became clear to me. You're merely speaking from what you think and not what actually happens.
**Live, love and heal...**
One of the reasons is that our black hair is very difficult to maintain. It requires a lot of hard work to comb & keep it in shape especially for females who have full hair.
**I love being me.**
It can be attractive, but I believe if we started to take care more of our natural African hair more, we would fall in love with it's kinky nature instead and see the beauty in it's form
Quote from MissDairo: There are numerous reasons why women wear artificial hair.Some wear it not because they aren't proud of there hair but because they experience loss of hair frequently which has caused them to loose their front hair. Do you then expect such a woman to carry that hair to work?Some wear artificial hair because of their busy schedule. They don't have the luxury of time to spend in a beauty salon.Another reason women wear wig is to protect their natural hair. Yes, you read that right.Sun and other factors are dangerous to the hair when exposed often. That is the reason some put on wig especially those with healthy hair.Another reason is some don't like making their hair. We have people with soft scalp and they feel pain when they try to make their hair so the best option is for them to wear a wig.Also we have some who are dealing with certain sickness that have changed the look of their hair so it advisable they out on a wig.Should I also talk about the fashion aspect of it.Not all styles of the wig we wear can be made with the natural hair.Now last but not the least.Women wear wig because they want to and they actually can.So why should anyone bother.The same way you buy shoes and clothes to look good is the same way women buy wigs too.Aren't you proud of your body?Aren't you proud of your natural hair as a man? So why do you Barb your hair?
Why are african girls not proud of their natural hair? why do they prefer to go buy wool and attachment to plait their hairs with? The answer is sometimes they feel it's not long enough, or it's not attractive enough but that's all wrong, I'm not a girl, but I have sisters and I see that their natural hairs are beautiful, I mean, take a look at how black and how soft their hairs are.
It 50/50 because some ladies puts on wigs and they look sexy for some guys while some guys are attracted to the wig and how it's been kept..
Some of them are proud of the hair while some are not proud of the African hair. Some of the woman believe that changing their hair to foreign hair will make them more beautiful which it not, some of them will dye and coil their hair do to have artificial hair even some of them tint their hair to become gold or silver I think colour. But the reason while some African ladies go away with their African hair is that some of them prefer to do things as white people always do their because they made foreigner as their god.
Lolzz,I won't blame you much for all you said here simply because you are not a woman.
My pastor used this line once while preaching and it would fit here.
**Don't be a good student and a bad teacher.**
It's just the mentality we grew up to....every one want to be like this person and we end up in a bad situation. i did that also like having to tint(colouring)my hair not because of any special somebody tho...just did it to change my look but because people take as a fact of gangster lifestyle so people were like it doesn't fit my personality and it was like i was copying entirely
Another thing to take note of is that African hair is by nature kinky and very hard to tame, hard to comb and in general difficult to maintain. So a modern lady would prefer to wear wigs that are easier to maintain than go through the stress of trying to maintain theirs. So who can fault them? No one likes to be stressed.
It's our mentality
I don't see any attraction in wigs.
I have never been attracted to any lady because of her wig.
I feel that one of the major reasons why women are not proud of their hair is as a result of low self esteem.
When you just feel that whatever you have is not good enough, rather you choose to go for the latest trends.
What attracts me to a lady is when she's natural.
I really appreciate natural beauties.
As for wigs and human hair, I don't really fancy them.
This is because we look at what they are doing out side country and we do the same , god has created us naturally here in Africa but until we used white people things or untill we behave like white people before we are convinent.
Our hair is natural not only our hair our nature of being is good and perfect, but we black people do not like how God created us , that is why you will see someone who is black using bleaching cream just for him or her to become light.
We should be comfortable with the wag God created us and lastly out hair is good in nature appreciate God for that.
@Iyanu: Many attimes we Africans fell very inferior to the whites and that is why we tend imitate their personalities.
Not knowing that we were created in a unique that is even better than they are.
They have only got a platform that we don't have nothing more...
