SORT BY Relevancy
Why is there still such a huge controversy & discrimination against afros & dreadlocks? What's the big threat about those particular hairstyles? Did you know it was an European man who created "perms" for Africans to make their hair straight like European women & men? Certain people's hair textures aren't a choice at birth. Why do society discrminate so much against what's natural for certain nationalities or race of people, but they are quick to want to steal their ideas & concepts to capitalize on them without giving them proper credit, acknowledgment nor compensation? Tune in to hear what we have to say about this matter. Feel free to follow us on Twitter & Instagram @zhemagazine and join us on Facebook @ZHEMAGAZINEPAGE. Our website is www.zhemagazine.com.

Curves In 3D Talks Hair.... Relaxed, Natural, Coils, Locs, Weaved, Braids, Long, Short, Nappy or Straight. What style defines you? We are talking hair tonight so the show can be straight curly (pun intended). There are many thoughts about the BLACK woman and hair floating out there....
She a fake babee... said of those who are natural to the weave queens......
She is too urban... said of those who wear weave to the Natural sistas......
We will be discussing it All this Thursday night October 30, 2014... Bring your thoughts, your views and your hair.... We are talking hair DIVAS!
“Why don’t you wear your hair natural?”
First, please don’t think that how Black women wear their hair reflects the acceptance or rejection of their Blackness. There are other reasons: financial, medical or just personal choice. It is not always an attempt to assimilate to white standards of beauty. Psychological tests show people most trust people who look like them. If that means wearing my hair a certain way in order to continue to provide for my family, there is no contest. I will march into a pharmacy or beauty-supply store and proudly ask, “Relaxers are down which aisle?”
It's ALL about the hair.... A Womans CROWN and GLORY! You may leave a comment or join us for the show at 9pm est.
ANCIENT BLACK BUDDHA
The statues of ancient Buddahs of the East depected him as having wolly hair is always shown in corn rows, or in a pepper corn style with small tight curls. Original statues of Buddha clearly show him to be Africoid, with the wide nose, thick lips and frizzy, nappy, hair which are distinctive Negro characteristics. In most ancient temples throughout Asia where he is still worshipped, he is shown as jet Black. In fact, in most of the ancient temples of Asia and India, statues of the gods and goddesses have Africoid features with woolly hair in the pepper corn style, while some even have dreadlocks. These pictures of Buddha portray him in no uncertain terms as a Negro with kinky, coiled hair, a flat nose and full lips.
There are absolutely no historical records that portray Buddha as Aryan or White.
The first people who conceptualized and worshipped the divine image of the Negroid mould of humanity were the Negroes, and they actually started the practice of Buddhism, the world's first missionary religion. Buddha was an Enlightened Master from the Sakya clan of the Naga Race, and was the first man on earth to preach the great principles of equality, liberty and fraternity. He caused the Nagas to become conscious of their own mind power as opposed to the mantra power.
Buddhism, whose doctrines include the Golden Rule, was established 500 years before Christianity in the area now called the Middle East (Africa). Buddha is not a name but a title meaning Enlightened One, Blessed One, or to Become awake. Over the centuries, there have been several recorded Buddhas like Gautama, Sakayanumi, and Siddhartha. Black Buddhist missionaries introduced Buddhism to China, Japan and other countries.

If you have a career that requires you to appear before the public - receptionist, flight attendant, television newscaster, etc., you were probably given a description of what is considered the appropriate "look" for your job. Somewhere in that description was probably the word "professional." Somehow, particularly for women of African descent, that word "professional" is a code word meaning "and get rid of that nappy hair!" Perhaps artsy people - musicians and entertainers- can get away with it, but how many women or men are seen in top positions in corporate America wearing locks? Jacqueline McCrae of Locpartee examines some of the attitudes surrounding the natural styles of hair, whether "dreadlocks," "sister locks," or the various twists that create an exotic look. Why is our hair a political statement? Can your hairstyle really affect whether you are hired for a job? Can it affect your acceptance in certain social circles? Can it determine whether you are a feasible candidate for public office? Has the wearing of locks by certain "gangster rap" artists caused it to be identified as a"thug" hairstyle?Why are all the women wearing weaves? And is the real problem that we never really learned how to properly value and take care of our own natural hair?
Why is it that the term "Natural Hair" alone brings so much emotion to the forefront of a community?
Why should we even have the term "Natural Hair" which in actuality reveals that most sport as unnatural hair.
But if one were to mention this to an individual who dyes their locks, straightens them, heats them up and then douses them with all types of substances as though their hair was in a burn unit, you might get a few unkind words thrown your way.
So most of us understand this common argument that brews under the surface of the Black hair industry.
But in many recent findings we have discovered that even within the natural hair movement their is a separation somewhat of what many feel are the ideals that personify and represent it.
Well let me get straight to the point.
There is a great divide within the natural hair movement that is beyond disgusting and baffles the mind over and above any measure.
The problem that seems to be ever growing and brewing as we speak is that many women in the Natural Hair Movement seem to want to through shade at anyone who is also in the movement who has hair that is curly and not kinky.
Is this immature or what?
Here we expect to see a special breed of enlightened woman, who has embraced her natural beauty and has broken the shackles that society has placed on many to turn around and feel so negatively toward another who is supposed to be on the same team!
.......and JUST when I thought many of our Sisters were making progress this type of backward thinking rears its ugly head.
Is this the reason that it seems that only Black women call their trip to the hair salon "The Beauty Salon?" Why is it that I don't hear other races refer to it in this manner? Does this indicate that many Black women do not feel as tough their natural state is anything BUT beautiful?
