Response to cyberpunk (Reply #42)

Fri Jun 10, 2016, 11:22 PM

45. Why not?

This is a big part of this discussion, I think. How we are perceived by others...

Just do you.

My mom used Bonnie Bell in our hair. It was discontinued and she was pissed off to say the least. Experiment.

Make you some aloe vera, olive oil tincture and keep tweaking it.

This thread REALLY has me thinking about colorism now. Absolutely no shade on you.... Because as a dark-skinned person, I previously wanted my hair straight to minimize my darkness, and you as a light skinned, seem to be afraid of Afro appropriation.

Why and where do we draw these lines? Just some thoughts.

But I still personally think you should just do the Afro and fuck it.
