She Weave Checked Me
Thursday, 30 August 2012
A few days ago me and my girls went out to the club. Whilst I was in the queue to pay for entry I felt some poking in the back of my head, so I turned around to see what was behind me. Would you believe I turned around to see some girl say to me 'O I was just checking for tracks', I simply told her my hair is all mine, then she replies 'O it's very nice and full', I said hmm thanks.
I must admit, as sad as it is to say, I am used to stares or funny looks from other females (black females with lengthy hair is very much a rarity in the UK), but never in my life have I experienced a person actually invade my personal space just to know the details of my hair!
I have no idea how to act? I am certainly happy that my hair was mistaken for a weave (I think), but this just confirms that black females are still under the impression we cannot grow long locks *SCREAMS*
I just want to shake them and educate them and point them in the direction of my favourite hair blogs lol
I'm curious to hear if any of you ladies have been weave checked before? How do you deal with it?
