awww mobell. so cute. i don't know what your hair looks like now, but i'm partial to the first picture with the cornrows into the afro puff. (my hair kinda looks like that now, but i have flat twists in the front) i like the third picture too. i twist my hair all the time like the first one blk posted, so i think that style is easy to keep up. i had palm rolls too, but they fell out after the second day and i never tried that again.

Since dressing RBG was so successful... ;)

I need to get my hair done before I go home.  I'm going to see people there.  Walking around completely natural would freak my church and family out.  Usually get individual braids, but I'm thinking something like cornrows would be cheaper and faster.  Do y'all have any style ideas?  Here are some I'm considering:

Hi there,
Don't have as much LSD clout as others, but as a fellow natural I would say go with the first hair style (from the pics from your original post). Your family (and everyone for that matter) needs to come to terms with the fact that your hair is natural and can look good at the same time so a style like that should garner nothing but compliments (and maybe some "can I touch it?" comments from curious/nosy people).

Best of luck with whatever you choose. I'm sure you'll look fabulous anyway.

Hey Seu,
I know from personal experience that if another black female or even a latina asks me I am not offended, especially when followed by a nice comment. It's usually when a old white lady I work with asks (sorry but I had to go there). That's why I put curious/nosy. Sometimes when I get my hair done people(the white folk I work with or go to school with) are so in my sh*t it gets annoying. Then if I let them touch, they have the nerve to make comments about how my hair is soft like it should be rough like sandpaper...

 But I know when a Black or latina sista asks it's usually cuz they may be considering it themselves at some point in the future.
But as far as the superstition I think I hear that you do have to watch who touches your hair because if they are jealous they might jinx you and your hair will fall out or stop growing. But I am not sure if it is Mexican though...

What's the difference between a woman of color asking and a white woman asking? Do you automatically assume that the white woman is acting in bad faith or maliciously?  I mean, there are some hairstyles that black women can wear that white women can wear too.  Some white women have very curly hair textures that can hold many of the styles that you wear.  If a woman like that is interested in wearing her hair that way and she wants to touch yours, would you be offended?

i'd never heard that letting someone touch your hair might jinx you.  interesting...

but the mexican superstition is very prevalent.  they believe that having someone admire something about yourself and not having that person touch you is equivalent to the evil eye.  this bad energy apparently travels with you until you get a cleansing (which i don't believe in) or until something bad happens to you.  anytime you hear anyone talking about "ojo", that's what they're talking about.

this is something they especially adhere to when dealing with babies.  if a baby is fussy or has a fever after being out in public or in a large crowd, they think the baby has ojo. 

i don't know if it's true or not.  but i do know that staring at people eat without them knowing of this will cause their food to fall off their utensil or all over themselves.  it's sooo funny.  i do this all the time.

not just that, but a couple of weeks ago i went out and i was wearing a really short skirt and HIGH heels.  i got a lot of comments about my legs that night,  but of course, i didn't let anyone touch me.  no way.  well, a couple of days later i nearly broke my foot.  coincidence or ojo?  i should send this one in to univision for a follow-up...

Since your response is based on my statement I’ll clarify for you- A Black or Latino woman that doesn’t know me wouldn’t be ignorant enough to walk up to me and ask me if she can touch my hair.. That’s the difference… There’s a certain amount of respect that I demand as a black woman (as I’m sure that most black women feel the same)  …

you’ve said  yourself that you feel a certain amount of empowerment with your hair correct? Or something to that effect..

So yes I automatically assume that a random ass white woman that has the nerve to come up to me with some “oooh let me touch your hair cause I can never do that with mine it’s so fascinating” *&^% has an agenda… none of my white friends have asked me if they could touch my hair. .

it’s like asking someone if they can touch your skin because it’s a different color than there’s…

I never said that there weren’t hair styles that black and white women both wear.. anytime that  I see a white woman with some cornrows or some locks I cringe..

I hate when folks ask if my hair is a weave and when I tell them no, they proceed to stick their fingers in my hair to feel for tracks. Now that's rude!

I think it's cute when white folks ask about black hair. They seem really facinated by the texture LOL.

My statements weren't meant to offend, they are just the truth. I don't assume a white woman can't do the same hairstyles, but seeing as how the main population of the "canb I touch"ers are old white ladies and white men, there is probably a chance that they won't try it.

As blk_reign stated, which I forgot to clarify, is that most of the black/latina woman that ask to touch my hair are in fact my firends or people who know me well. I won't lie, I too will see someone with lovely hair and want to ask to touch but I am not in the business of drawing back nubs either *high fiving blk_reign*

In my experiences people who happen to be white and ask to touch my hair more often than not don't even know my name. Nothing was said about malice. But like HBCU said, it is creepy...
Title: Re: Do MoBell's Hair Thread
Post by: seu2002 on May 11, 2005, 01:44:17 PM
so when those white people ask, how do you respond?  to clarify, once again, i only asked my friend if i could touch his hair bc he looked damn good and i didn't want it to fall off.    he's the only person i've ever asked.

but no one wants to touch my hair.  i don't do anything with it either.  i don't even comb it.  it's that grody.  really.

*high fiving blk_reign again*

I have to tell some of these kids I go to school with to back the F&^K up cuz this ain't no exhibit. The only time I will let anyone touch my hair without my angry black woman look is when they are in extensions.

on another note, I don't know if I am the only one, but when I change my hair length (extensions weave etc) I swear the white people honestly think my hair grew that fast over the weekend, and they actually ask me what is my real hair length, even when I have my hair out. And they ask it EVERY time I change my hair. Get a clue. Do you HONESTLY think that my hair grows with a round hair bulb at the root(from extensions)????

Oh and Muse, my hair isn't even as long as yours. but when I got my hair professionally straightened everyone swore I had a weave. Haters, I know.

Keenyah is hella skank. I know her. She use to roll with one of the party crews in so cal.


Really?? I always thought she was whack on the show. And I can't stand the jawline. It makes her look like Jay Leno.

LOL@ "hella". I lived in CA for 6months on a co-op. Sorry, but I always get a laugh at it because it is so california and it reminds me of my friend Monica who always said hella.

*high fiving blk_reign again*

I have to tell some of these kids I go to school with to back the F&^K up cuz this ain't no exhibit. The only time I will let anyone touch my hair without my angry black woman look is when they are in extensions.

on another note, I don't know if I am the only one, but when I change my hair length (extensions weave etc) I swear the white people honestly think my hair grew that fast over the weekend, and they actually ask me what is my real hair length, even when I have my hair out. And they ask it EVERY time I change my hair. Get a clue. Do you HONESTLY think that my hair grows with a round hair bulb at the root(from extensions)????

Oh and Muse, my hair isn't even as long as yours. but when I got my hair professionally straightened everyone swore I had a weave. Haters, I know.

I hear you there! I wear my hair in a bun 99% of the time. Should I happen to wear it down, everyone wants to touch it or asks if it's mine. Even though it is mine, I usually respond, "It's mine, I bought it." And they don't bother me again.

My hair is relaxed and falls to just a few inches above my waist. I always forget that it is this long. And let me tell you, the  beauty shops I've been to have no clue what to do with it, so I don't go. I do everything myself. (BTW, if any of you will be in H-Town next year, I braid, press, weave, relax, cut and style hair.)

On a different note, my husband has never once asked me a stupid question about my shower cap, my head wraps, my braids, hair oil, when I sit around the house waiting for the relaxer, or all of my cocoa butter use. God was it nice to find someone who didn't feel the need to question me as if I were an oddity.

BTW Mobell, I think you should do the style from your link or the short natural style the blk posted. I want that style but I'm afraid I'll actually have to wear makeup to pull it off.

Wow, Scurvy, your hair sounds gorgeous.  Wish I were in H-town so you could help a sista out.  Very interesting that your husband (whom I thought was still your fiance...I feel behind, when did that happen? :)) doesn't ask you stupid questions about your hair.  Do you think it's a gender thing?  With all my white friends, not once has a white guy asked me anything stupid about my hair (even gay guys) - they notice and give compliments, but that's about it.  It's always intriguing to see.  White women go ON AND ON about it, esp. since I've gotten the natural.

That's odd. I am ALWAYS asked by the white men around me about my hair. But then again they are the geeky engineering type so they are probably trying to decipher the eletromagnetic properties in my hair in order to recreate the phenomena known as "constant verticular negrotis", where a Black person's hair manages to stay up when pulled outward from the scalp.

Ok, time to put my EE degree away...

The one thing I always hate is sitting under the dryer, and it seems like no matter how I get my hair done, the woman always suggests that I sit under the dryer, even my twists. After the dryer, I don't like paying money  :D, and I don't like the salons where people stop to go eat. thats annoying as F***, 'cause doesn't it always seem to happen when you're hungry too?  :D

Oh my goodness I totally feel you on this.  My appointments were almost always on Saturday and since my hair is so fragile I went to the best (and busiest) hairdresser in my town.  This was a 5-6 hour affair for a perm, trim and style. ???  Fortunately they were nice and I got used to it.

i went and got my hair done.  i got it cut, razored and styled.  i kept the length, got it layered around the edge so that i have hair that falls unto my face, and got some longer layers/bangs at the top.  it's also very straight.  i like it.

in order to maintain it, i'm gonna have to be straightening it every other wash.  that's ok.  my prob is the product.  what should i put in it?  i have biosilk and right now i'm using the garnier fructise stuff in a pump, but i'm afraid that particular product is more like an oil that will damage my hair with the heat.

the lady that cut my hair recommended some aveda spray, but the lady at the counter in that same salon said i should use biosilk.

so what should i use?  i need something that will make it shiny and help keep it straight and sleek.  my hair is coarse and naturally very wavy.  thank goodness it was razored to thin it out though.  that woman did a wonderful job.

any suggestions you ladies have will be VERY helpful.

hey everyone i need some help as usual and with this being mobell's hair thread and all i hope she doesn't mind!

so i'm in my best friend's wedding from high school and it's memorial day weekend (real soon) and i haven't decided what to do with my hair, which is natural and if it were to be straightened (don't want to do that though) it would probably fall at my shoulders if not a little below....and i am also going to get it trimmed today.

so my deal is that my friend is white, every body else in the wedding is white, therfore i won't be getting my hair did with them, and the wedding is in newport, ri, which is very very white.....adding to this i'm leaving for newport to visit with college friends on wed and the wedding is on friday so i'm probably gonna have to run into boston or providence to get my wig done...and my firend is only asking that the bridesmaid's hair is in an updo, and looks put together, so that leaves me with some room...

does anybody have any suggestions??

i don't have the slightest clue and i usually just where my hair in twists or pulled back with a band/scarf, this is the only thing that i miss about my permed coif, also i don't think if i twist my hair that it will be long enough to pull it up....

thanks

a.) Mobell, my vote is for the first 'do in the very first pic at the beginning of the thread.

b.) You mean it's not normal for people to touch your hair??? I've got the super-straight Asian hair, and I've had random people come up and braid it my entire life. I don't even think about it! As a result, I'll reach out and touch other people's hair, too, without a second thought. I won't even ask. Yeah, black girls, too. Looking back, though, it was the a couple of black girls in CA who introduced me to Pink, the only thing on the planet that can take the tangles out of waist-long hair... after they tried to braid my hair! If touching other people's hair is offensive, I owe an awful lot of apologies. :( I've never had anyone flinch or smack my hand away, though!

If I don't like someone's hair, the last thing I'm gonna do is touch it!  ;) I guess in my case, people have always been fascinated by the texture. I get it, because I want to touch things to see if they feel the same way they look, too. It never made me feel like a freak or anything. No, I take that back. When I was about 10, we went to visit my family in Korea for the first time since I was a toddler. Over there, they can tell I'm not full-blooded, and I had people come and pull at my hair just to see if it felt different. I guess that was a bit strange. I have a very, very white friend (picture Little Orphan Annie) who will frequently ask black girls about their hair and how they style it and stuff, but it isn't the same sort of freak-show curiosity you're talking about. Her husband is black, and she's just trying to learn how to take care of that kind of hair. Being a man, her hubby hasn't a clue, and she just wants to know how to take care of black hair when she has kids.

Well...in that case she needs to ask all the people she can.  I always feel sorry for those little biracial kids whose mommies don't know how to do their hair.  It's tragic. :-\ My mom and I actually had to perform an intervention once.

Black hair isn't exactly Pręt-ŕ-Porter, is it? I can believe the intervention. I grew up with friends whose mothers were Korean, so they couldn't read the books or ask a friend or anything. It was tragic. Luckily, those genes blend well and many of the Black/Asian kids have Mariah Carey type hair, but I did have a couple of friends who looked liked episodes of "Good Afros Gone Bad." Just remember that as interracial marriage becomes more and more common, you're going to get more and more fascinated white women asking you about your haircare routine! Consider it a public service.  ;)
Title: Re: Do MoBell's Hair Thread
Post by: UMHBmom on May 14, 2005, 07:50:26 PM


Ehh...depends on the hair.  Now that mine's natural it is so freakin' easy to take care of.  Being natural has changed my life for the much, much better.  In my opinion, if Black women stopped trying to masochistically beat the Blackness out of their hair it would be just as easy to care for as any other ethnicity's.  (But I'll get off that soapbox for now.) ;)

Hey, I'll do what I can for public service as long as people asking questions treat me with a modicum of respect.  You know, I love the Black/Asian combo.  I'm in favor of that, maybe even for myself. And then I'll get to ask Asian women Asian questions about Asian stereotypes and the world will be back in balance.  Hope I don't get smacked, even though I'd certainly deserve it. ;)

That doesn't go just for black women, ya know! I know plenty of Asian women who destroy their hair with perms to get some curl (I was young and stupid once, too) and curly-headed women who fry their hair with flat irons. Then you've got women of all races who go out and buy someone else's hair and fuse it to their own. Women in general would do well to stop trying to be something they're not! I say this, and I spent $140 on cosmetics at Sephora today. what a hypocrite....

I like stereotypes. I like living up to them for giggles sometimes. I'll go squat out in my front yard and bury jars of kimchee just for the looks I get.  :D

Make one false move, I'll take you down. Get back! (Get back) You don't know me like that."  then if you transitioned to "Get out my business, my biznass. Stay the #@!* up out my biznass, ah ’cause these bitches all up in my sh*t and it’s my business, My biznass.  Stay the #@!* up out my biznass, ’cause it’s mine, oh mine" that would be TIGHT.   :D

lex it's a blow drying process that takes EXTREMELY high heat  :'(... but it will make your hair look better than any perm ever could

blk, ohhhh yeah extreme heat scares me, i'm always afraid my hair won't bounce back, it's a miracle that i let my stylist blow out my hair in order to trim it! i wish she was available, but that's my fault for waiting till the last minute, home girl is soo busy i have to schedule my appointments at least a month in advance, but she rocks!

thanks ladies, i'm thinking i'll have small cornrows (don't know what pattern/design) in the front, then i'll get the back two stand twisted and have it put up, but who knows

how much are you willing to spend for your style? is there somewhere that you go regularly for twists in DC? there are a couple of places that i know of that do excellent jobs

I also know some Dominican Salons in the area for great blow outs in the D.C./Maryland area.

I wish I would have learned to braid, stuff I pay folks to do, my mother can just do without a problem.

Another approach that is chemical-based but doesn't take high heat is a Japanese silk perm. Those are very expensive, but the results are amazing. Not a lot of black or latina girls know about it because it's generally done in "white" salons (was that politically uncorrect? Sorry if it was!), but it works on all hair textures and gives you that ultra-silky, straight and shiny finish. I have a Puerto Rican friend who has very coarse and curly hair, but after she got it done her hair was like a mirror. It was gorgeous.

so i don't want to spend more than 80 dollars, do you think this unrealistic???

also, i will probably end up getting my hair done in providence or boston b/c i leave wed and the wedding is on sat, or will i be able to keep my hair looking fresh for 3 days??? hmm

and i do my own twists i'm just not willing to pay for something i can do on my own although it takes me 6 hours and a stylist 2, but i my hair is thick and kinda long and you know how hair professionals be bugging on prices sometimes!

I used to go to Uzuri Braids every now and then for loc treatment.. they charged $45 for 1.5 hours to twist..definitely cheaper than cornrows and company (and cc is only open wednesday-saturday anyway)... and they do an excellent job... I'm sure that you can get an appt there by Wednesday..

i believe that they'd definitely fit in your budget and they work fast and well..

I have a very, very white friend (picture Little Orphan Annie) who will frequently ask black girls about their hair and how they style it and stuff, but it isn't the same sort of freak-show curiosity you're talking about. Her husband is black, and she's just trying to learn how to take care of that kind of hair. Being a man, her hubby hasn't a clue, and she just wants to know how to take care of black hair when she has kids.   

Well...in that case she needs to ask all the people she can.  I always feel sorry for those little biracial kids whose mommies don't know how to do their hair.  It's tragic. :-\ My mom and I actually had to perform an intervention once.

Black hair isn't exactly Pręt-ŕ-Porter, is it? I can believe the intervention. I grew up with friends whose mothers were Korean, so they couldn't read the books or ask a friend or anything. It was tragic. Luckily, those genes blend well and many of the Black/Asian kids have Mariah Carey type hair, but I did have a couple of friends who looked liked episodes of "Good Afros Gone Bad." Just remember that as interracial marriage becomes more and more common, you're going to get more and more fascinated white women asking you about your haircare routine! Consider it a public service.  ;)

(Disclaimer: Sorry, haven't read the rest of the thread since I last posed)

I have no problem helping mom's that have black daughters. I don't find it offensive. In fact, I've started a program for some of the single mom's at my office, I go over and teach the girls how to style and maintain their hair every weekend. I do this for a foster center too. It helps them to gain confidence and teaches them a skill they'll use for a lifetime. My mom is black, but had different hair than me and had no clue what to do with it, so I totally relate.
