HAIR WARS: are u a wannabe or a jiggaboo??



every black woman BETTER go see this. it looks like it is going to be so beyond hill air e us. we as women, esp black women, place so much value on our tresses that it has become worldwide knowledge that relationship between a black woman & her hair is a special one. i admit, i LOVE the fact that my hair isn't as ETHNIC as most black women. i LOVE the fact that a good press will have my hair bouncy & shiny without assistance from a perm. but hey, a nice weave/wig or a good perm isn't foreign to my scalp. i LOVE being versatile. i can have long hair, short hair, big hair, curly hair, straight hair, wavy hair...colored hair & braided hair. i dig being a black woman. we can do ANY and EVERY thing with our hair. it shouldn't be looked down upon...it should be celebrated.

the problem arises when folks start thinking a particular grade/texture or length of hair makes the woman attached to it BETTER than the next woman. this is superficial and ignorant. the debate of good vs bad hair is as trivial & pointless as light vs dark skin. the outer you is only temporary....worry about your inner self. perm that out...i mean STRAIGHTEN out the you on the inside.


ladies, i will continue to stress the importance of getting over our petty issues. you can be the most attractive woman, but if your attitude/spirit/personality sucks..u won't get far. bet on that. be a better, more beautiful you by loving yourself & others.

Chris Rock's documentary, GOOD HAIR, is in theaters in October.


inspiration for my title comes from School Daze. the "good & bad hair" song/dance scene. the jiggaboos vs the wannabes. check it out below....
