Wigs, Weaves & Braids: Your Status Hair

History Lesson
Research has shown that even centuries ago hair was a symbol of status for Africans/Egyptians, Romans, Chinese and countless others ethnicities. Today it still is. There are many practices that we, as black women still use today. Our beautiful ancestors were not strangers to ponytails, hair “gel”, even combs. They dyed their hair with henna, used sweet smelling oils and even curled their lovely tresses with makeshift curling tools. And…yes, they did wear wigs and extensions!

Even then, our hair was important to us. It made a statement. It gave us a status. From overly expressive, simple and meek, to elaborately adorned with gems, flowers or shells; our black hair set us apart from others. In the past, if would indicate our marital status, or financial status, or how socially acceptable we were. Today, we are still making a status statement with our hair – so, what are you telling the world about yourself? What is your ideal status hair?

You Are Always You

As black women, we know and understand that our hair doesn’t change who we are. You are always you. Whether you are sporting a messy ponytail, a masterfully sculptured bun, dozens of tiny little braids or a natural afro – your morals don’t change, you still bake cookies the same – right?

We are diva enough to know that the core of us stays the same, but we can be dynamic, even selective, about how we want the world to see us. We’re not selling out if we want to wear a wig one day and our natural locks the next. There’s no book that says we can or can’t relax our hair, or use hair gel or dye our hair blue.
