CRINGE – Crimes Of Hair Fashion That You Should Not Be Committing

Pasted Gel Head

Pasted gel head - finger waves

It can be easy to fall into this trap because we are always so tempted to make sure every single strand of hair is perfectly laid with no popups anywhere. Remember those finger waves that look really pretty but when you touch them they are rock hard? Girl, you need to let your hair breathe!

One of the best ways to avoid pasted gel head is to not use so much. If your hair isn’t moving, you have used too much. If you are waiting for your wash and go to dry and your hair feels like you fell into a tub of slime, you have used too much. If your dry hair is shiny but it feels like plaster board, you have used too much.

I LOVE THOSE HAIRSTYLES … THE WACKIER THE BETTER! I love that you can find things like this amongst us black woman …Aint nothing about black woman is cookie cutter. Some like the pretty lil flower clip but then some of us like a lil fanstasy and whimsy in our daily lives. just to let the facts be known finger waves grow your hair. its a great protective style for some people. when you wear your hair in a hard gel style it can last for a week and for some people two weeks. my hair was 6 inches in length when using them hard gels styles. that was actually the longest my hair grew was during that time. care free maintenance and inexpensive. when you mix weaves with the finger weaves that’s when you can get into trouble or too tight ponytails. my hair was hard, inexpensive but beautiful. . if you want a soft finger wave to last you better go see Eva ‘s stylist cause she must be doing that every morning and most women cant afford that.

I was thinking the same thing almost. I honestly hate articles like this because they come off prejudice towards Black Americans. These might be considered “hair crimes” but why are they only targeted towards Black Americans? Honestly, as much we don’t like it, it’s their culture and we should respect it because at the end of the day, we have to stop this crabs in a bucket syndrome. Now much do you want to bet that White people will be doing this in the next ten years? Oh wait they already do but it’s looked as “trendy” and “fashionable” and “runway”. Black people wake up. Racism is staring us in the face and we continue to egg it on.

I think these hairstyles showcase someone’s talent. While you may not think these hairstyles are “acceptable” you know where to go if you wanted one of them. I see precision cuts, perfect blending and excellent use of colors. Not everything has to be so negative.
