So there!

I gotta go now.
Yo, I'm not bald and I can't grow a beard so there's no way anyone would say I look like a white man. lol

I can't deal with the high maintenance long hair would involve and it's too dang cold now.

Anyone ever think some NdNs - Loooone time ago - had long hair because they didn't have access to corner barber shops, hair salons or high priced boutiques???




Grits,

I had a mullet years before the word was even invented!

(Now it's just long, even and silky!)

And getting hair cut is such a personal thing too... Just this past spring I decided to just do it and got my hair cut above the shoulder (slightly) and donated to locks of love 17 inches of braided black hair. Im sure there's a sweet child out there now with a pretty wig but I was regretting it a week later and decided to grow it back out then and there. besides.. I got a shag haircut and had NO CLUE how to style it so it's just been in this little pony tail ever since.....lol
A friendly warning: Be careful about donating your hair for wigs unless you want to risk your hair being worn by a black person.

Tell us more of a black person wearing my hair if I donate it.

Are you saying a black person wants to have straight hair?

What is the meaning, in the cosmic world, of a Mexican person painting their hair blonde.

Ever seen 'Los Cosmicos'?

The cosmic definition of hair is "social image to others."

That means that if you dream about something happening to your hair, then your dream is saying something is happening to your social image to others.

The cosmic definition of hair when you are awake is also "social image to others."

The problem arises when someone who is a different race begins to masquerade as your social image because you donated your hair for a wig that the other race now wears. This is the basis for the superstitions such as voodoo, where someone takes what is yours that person is now an impersonator, an imposter of sorts.

With regard to hair texture desires of black people, I cannot reply about the "social image to others" desires of another race.

With regard to a Mexican person stripping their hair of color to appear blond, I have a theory but it is "forbidden knowledge." I will attempt to post it, but the moderator currently has three of my messages quarantined and I don't know if the moderator will approve this theory about hair color.

One of the quarantined message has to do with hair care according to the Mayan Calendar.

I hope this helps, Joe's Dad
