It is cold and snowy in my part of the world today. We have about 3-4″ of snow at the moment and are supposed to get up to 10-12″. I really don’t like the cold.
Anywho, Have you ever wondered how men felt about our natural hair journey’s? Or if they even cared at all?
Well I asked 3 men the same 3 questions about natural hair, and their responses may surprise you!
*Before we get started, let me just throw out there that these are just 3 men’s opinions. In no way can they speak for every man in the world. This is just a fun exercise to get some men involved in this beautiful journey*
Are you ready?
- How do you feel about woman finally embracing their natural hair?
- Do you think a woman should consult her significant other before doing the “big chop?” Why or why not?
- Does it even matter to you whether a woman is natural or not?
Q1: “I think it is a beautiful thing. I have daughters and I want them to feel comfortable and beautiful with the hair they have. I am all for a woman’s natural hair.”
Q2: “Absolutely! I think that is something we need to talk about first. If I am going to do anything to change my appearance I think it should be discussed beforehand.”
Q3: “Yes, I just prefer a natural woman. Just my preference. And like i said before, I have daughters, The woman I date could potentially become a role model for them. A natural role model will show them that it’s okay for them to be natural too.”
Q1: “I believe women finally embracing their natural hair as a positive. It is essential to their self image, identity, and self worth, and contributes to their overall uniqueness as a woman.”
Q2: “I don’t believe it’s necessary for a woman to consult her significant other before the big chop. A heads up would be nice as a courtesy, though. The success of our relationship wouldn’t solely hinge on any cosmetic changes, and besides, hair grows back.”
Q3: “It doesn’t matter to me whether a woman is natural or not. I thought it did. I considered a woman who wasn’t natural as being shallow and superficial. Then, I realized that we live in a extremely misogynistic culture that continues to prize a woman’s physical attributes over her intellectual abilities that, unfortunately, many woman still depend on for their socioeconomic survival.”
Q1: “I like it. Everyone should embrace their natural. Weave sucks. It’s about time!”
Q2: : “Yes! because we need to be on the same page. If I decide to shave off my eyebrows, this is something I need to talk to you about.”
Q3: “Yes. I like natural woman, all that fake stuff is a mess. It’s a lie.
