It is the same with our hair; we want our guys to really appreciate the choices we make when it comes to our hair especially if it’s healthy and aesthetically sound.
So what do you do if you choose a hairstyle that he absolutely hates? Are there any compromise to be made or is it a take it or leave it situation? This is not an easy problem to resolve, because if you are of the opinion that what he says does not matter then be prepared to accept the fact that it can go both ways.
Guys go through phases just like we do, there are bound to be stories of husbands or boyfriends turning a certain age who have decided to all of a sudden to pierce their ears and wear small hoop earrings, rock a high top fade in 2013 or decide to dally with facial hair when they have never shown an interest in the past.
The point is, we cannot escape opinion, likes or dislikes from our spouses, and dealing with the issue whether large or small takes time and might involve some compromise and a bit of discussion.
If you want to rock box braids and your man doesn’t like them, maybe sharing the benefits of what protective styling will do for your hair is the answer. If protective styling is really the goal and he hates box braids, then would you consider another protective styling option that maybe you both will like? A wig(affiliate link) that closely resembles your real hair perhaps?
Now don’t get the wrong idea as a modern woman it is extremely hard to write about compromise and ‘checking in’ without feeling like a sellout. It’s natural for you to feel absolutely in charge of your own being and every strand that comes with it. The truth is you are but if you feel really strongly about your hair choices then he will fall in line especially if you are consistent about how you feel and you are also able to do the same for him and his choices when the time comes.
