in his confessions

How important is hair to overall attractiveness? Specifically, which styles (down vs. ponytail vs. bun) and lengths?
I prefer either style. I find them both attractive. However, your facial features ultimately determine which style suits you best.

Do you feel there is a ‘Natural Hair Movement’ currently occurring? Why do you think so many women are going natural (i.e. Do you think most women want to make a statement or to just stop relaxing)?
I truly hope that there is a movement occurring amongst the ” sisters.” Honestly, there needs to be one. In my opinion, black women need to embrace the essence of afrocentricity. These hair relaxers are not only damaging your hair, but you as a person; an African American Queen.

Would you support your significant other if she decided to become natural?
I would not only support my significant other for going natural, but I would become her number one fan because of it :-}

Are you able to tell the difference in textures of hair? If your significant other were to go natural, would the texture of her hair affect your opinions on whether she should remain natural or not?
I am able to discern textures of hair. Her natural texture would absolutely have no bearing on whether or not I think she should go natural. I would definitely encourage my significant other or friend to go or remain totally natural. In my book that is the best and only way to be.

Do you like or dislike when your significant other changes her hair style often (i.e. wigs, weaves, braids, flat ironed, wash & go)?
I would encourage my significant other to change up styles “naturally.”After all, we do have seasons. I am all about natural. Weaves are a turn off to me. Work with what you got; simply put.

Does the amount of time your significant other spends on her hair prove to be problematic?
It only proves to be problematic if she spends way more time on her than she does in the shower.

How do you feel about the amount of money your significant other spends on her hair? Is there a point where the amount of money is a source of conflict? Is it acceptable for her to spend as much as she chooses as long as she looks fly?
I think that she should spend as much as she would like to, just as long as she does not infringe on our household budget.

Do you think your significant other should consider your opinion when making decisions about her hair?
I absolutely think she should consider my opinion. However, it is ultimately her decision to choose.

Why do you think women care about a man’s opinion when it relates to hair?
Everyone subconsciously seeks approval from others. However, it takes a brave and independent person to step outside of the box and go against the grain. That is the type of woman that I am attracted to.

How do you view women that wear weaves? Can you tell the difference between natural hair and a weave?
The odor of a weave is rather distinctive. It is a Natural repellent for real men in my opinion. I am turned off by women that chooses hair weave as a fashion accessory.

How do you feel about satin sleeping bonnets or any type of hair scarf?
I love when a woman has the ability to implement a bonnet or scarf into her daily fashion. Very classy.

Does it matter to you whether your significant other’s hair is relaxed or not?
It does not matter, but I am more partial to women who wear their hair naturally.

"the odor of a weave is rather distinctive…" lol…I'm not a weave-wearer, but I don't think I've ever "smelled" one…lol

when he spoke about stinky weave those ladies must not wash their extensions. I know several women that keep sewins for 4wks and look crazy when u ask if they wash their hair. When I wore sewins mine was washed and conditioned weekly….lol

Very interesting("weaves are a Natural repellant to a Natural Man…LOL!")….I think Jeremy needs a part 2. I am not sure if being or going natural make women want to become more Afrocentric so to speak…Speaking for myself, I went natural because my permed/relaxed doobies were not speaking the volume of my Uniqueness. I am Unique and very distinctive, my hair helps to accentuate my overall personality. But I am no way more in tune with being Afrocentric. Does being natural imply that I am Afrocentric or should be?

Very good question Jay. I'll see if I can get Jermy to respond to your question.
