Good question. Fake hair is an enhancement. It's equivalent to white women getting lip injections, butt injections or fake boobs. Also, "fake hair" is NOT limited to black women. Hollywood stars like Paris Hilton, Jessica Simpson,Pamela Anderson, Lindsay Lohan, Hayden Panniterie(?), ect are KNOWN to wear fake hair/weaves/hair extensions themselves. So the real question should be: Why do WOMEN wear fake hair? Again, it's an enhancement. Women know that men (especially in America) prefer long hair and us (women in general) are trying to conform to the standard.

lol
good answer!

i dont conform to the standards, i wear my hair short because i have thin skimpy hair and actually look better in short hair, and u know my husband is fine with my choice. and im white and dont have any interest in getting the big lips because i dont think it looks natural unless its real. ya know?
And i think this persons question is just plain rude, he isnt asking anything of interest nor does he care to ask any black women anything. IMO of course.
as for me, im wondering what it is u think that white women would like to know about black women. apart from the hair problem, lets face it black hair "seems" to be harder to work with than the average white womans, i cant think of one thing that i would ask a black woman that "may" be a different answer than i would get from any white women.
u want to talk about just women and what problems we as women face, what complaints we have with men, etc. then u have my interest, that to me is what we as women should do - not compare or look for difference we "think" we have with regards to our color. we are women, color shouldnt matter, we should just talk about our feelings...

Well that depends on who's doing the hair. I've heard stylist (white and black) say that they actually prefer doing African American type hair because our hair has more diversity and holds a hair style better period compared to long thin or "stringy" type hair. So saying that African American hair is harder to deal with than your average white woman's depends on the indiviual.

Also, I agree and disagree in regards to black and white women having the same experiences. Even though COLOR SHOULD NOT matter, realistically, there ARE SOME differences between the black and white experience. However, at the end of the day we all put our pants on one leg at at a time and more importantly we ARE Women. I totally agree that we should discuss our feelings as women instead of distinguishing between the the black and white experience.

I didn't say MOST white women, however MANY do. However, white women DO get the MOST plastic surgery in America.... Have you u met MOST black women? I think it's silly for u to assume that MOST black women wear weaves. But if they do, again it's for enhancement.

Contrary to popular belief, 95 percent of African Americans date and marry within their race. For some odd reason, the media sensationalize black men and white women. However, most black women could care less about interracial dating. If a black man finds a white woman attractive, so what? The truth of the matter is, of ALL races, white men date more outside of their race. How do U feel about that?

Correction: For some odd reason, the media likes sensationalizing black and white relationships, especially courtship between black men and white women. However, most black women could care less about interracial dating. If a black man finds a white woman attractive, so what? The truth of the matter is, the MAJORITY of us marry within in OUR RACE, which affirms that BLACK MEN DO WANT BLACK WOMEN. The truth of the matter is, of ALL races, white men date more outside more. Why? Does this mean white men are NO longer attracted to white women? Please explain.

Okay..hmm Since the 1600's I suspect that women and men wore weaves,wigs and whatever decoration. Why must race always plague the net. Get over it! If you have breast cancer you wear a wig don't you? Hair attachments are very lovely as long as they flatter the person{face,nose,lips and the eyes}. All women and even men wear them. To all the African women on this site who reside in America.,There are plenty of African born males who will appreciate you.Africa is a huge continent..You love who you want..not love who has the same skin tone as yourself.America has become so bigoted once more!

well i guess it depends on the hair stylist and what kind of experience she/he may have with hair. my friend is one and once told me that she found black womens harder to work with, and also that she thought maybe blacks preferred to have a black stylist because they themselves realize this. so really it comes down to what experience a person has, so maybe race has nothing to do with the hair thing.
speaking of hair, ive never worn a wig but have thought about buying one. just think with my "stringy" Short hair, it might be easier to plop a wig on the head. the biggest fear i would have about it is that i wonder if its hot to wear, if people can tell u have one one. and im assuming u'd have to buy a good one which would cost a good bit. maybe someday i'll treat myself. lol

what kind of differences would You say that black and white women face? im curious, aside from the usual bashing of men that women sometimes do when they get together (u know complaining they dont pick up after themselves, etc etc) can u give us a couple of ideas on how u think we as women would be different?

i really think this conversation could be interesting and helpful providing we can ignore the goons that want to start fights..

i beg to differ. Only 78% of black men marry black women compared to 98% of white men. Yes, that's the new statistics on marriage, you should check it out so you can be updated. Try Dateline they covered this not to long ago. Oh and by the way, when black men are educated or wealthy that percentage becomes even more of a negative, g-wiz wonder why?
