So I'm sitting here watching "Good Hair" on HBO and they're discussing weaves, among other things. Some women on the documentary say that their men pay for their weaves, and the men have all gone to the poor house supporting their women's "weave habit." Some weaves can cost up to $5k!
That is pure fuckery.
Maybe I feel this way because I'm not a woman who spends a lot of time on her hair. Pull it back, put it in a pony tail. If it's not long enough to be put into a pony tail, I slap on a hat. Done.
I don't like sitting all day at the salon unless I'm getting my hair braided. I don't color my hair, I don't weave it, I don't pay much attention to it other than wrapping it up at night...and then my scarf inevitably slides off. Hair just doesn't do it for me.
But for those women who get it poppin' with their do's, they have a hair budget. If a man isn't footing the bill, I don't know how they do it. Getting your hair did every week can cost a small fortune, and some stylists even allow their clients to put their weaves on layaway.
Again, pure fuckery to me. I hope their stock portfolio's are a healthy as their hair.
Anyway, the question of the day....
What is the most you've ever spent getting your hair done? Any women have their men paying for their hair upkeep? Men - ever tricked on a chick's weave?
Over the years, I've been blessed to have spent time with, befriend, love, learn from and share experiences with people who have helped me grow and inspire me everyday. They have shared words of wisdom, strengthened me with encouragement, gave me joy with a smile, comforted me with a hug, gave clarity to my visions and dreams and renewed my spirit with faith. It is through family and friends that I manage to be happy and hopeful.
These relationships work because we share our philosophies, our personal truths and an outlook that prompts us to seek something greater in all and in ourselves. Sharing a journey heartedly illuminates our lives and enriches our experiences. It keeps us moving....always evolving....ever changing.
I have been transformed by the wisdom, opinions, insights and revelations of those who have shared their journey with me. It's a blessing I long to share with you through my first ever blog. For me, writing is a reflection of my own direct experience and I look forward to all of you sharing your thoughts and experiences with me.
So...with that said....can I just say.....??? :-)
