African American Hair And Hairstyles
Hair is a wonderful thing. People love this natural feature, whether they’re male or female. This is the reason it’s such a bummer if your follicles fall out leaving you hairless up top. One thing I have noticed is different races have different types of hair. This is great in my opinion. Diversity is what makes the world beautiful. Take African American hair, for example, although I never really thought of it as different as a child, I soon learned otherwise. As my best friend from high school put it, “White people have different hair than we do. We have to work to make ours soft.” Of course, it is, although this was peculiar to me then. I’ve actually come to detect differences in races and their hair types and styles over the years.
The weave is quite common with African American hair. This is a way to change and add to what you currently have. Perhaps you want a style or a different color weaved in. It all can be accomplished. One style I’ve always loved is cornrows. It simply does not work the same when other races do it. Now, for those of you who do not have a clue, African American hair is coarser and dryer generally. Not to mention more curly. This is the reason black men may suffer a little more with razor bumps. No, it has nothing to do with your bad shaving habits. It is actually related to the coarseness of your beard. They are inclined to turn back up under the skin easier causing razor bumps. Considering that the whiskers are so curly, you may want to try clippers or an electric instead of a blade.
We should all love and adopt the hair we’re given. Work with what you’ve got. Forget about everyone else. This is what my mom told me. Whether you’ve got Asian, Caucasian or African American hair, it does not matter. You can alter, color and style your hair in any way, shape or form you please. Should you have African American hair, it’s prudent to see a stylist who’s familiar with fashions and African American hair. This will ensure better outcomes.
