TBH, we should have a week of just reblogging and posting dark skinned non biracial women and 4a-4c hair types.
I understand that black people are diverse but I’m tired of black beauty blogs(and media) 90% of the time showcasing biracial light skinned loose curl haired small petite nosed black women when most of us don’t even look like that.
Sometimes I hate seeing the bombshells blogs of black women. Yeah these are very beautiful women, and I understand you wanna show the world that black is beautiful (because it is). But you must understand that ALL black is beautiful. This means the ones with little butt, and the ones with small boobs. The ones who don’t know how to do that perfect eyeliner and those perfect eyebrows. The ones who don’t have those voluptuous curves. The ones who have type 4 hair and those who have type 5 hair (And yes it does exist.) Bottom line us as a whole ARE BOMBSHELLS and to only view one side of it, what’s deemed as beautiful by society is kind of irritating to other black girls and women like me that can’t relate because I look nothing like them.
Rest in Peace to the beautiful LongHairDontCare2011 of YouTube. She passed away April 9th due to lupus complications.
If you would like to, please donate to her fund to help with service and cremation costs. Please see the link below.
From her friend: I am truly in a horrible place emotionally. My great friend, which many of you know as Domin, lhdc2011, and longhairdontcare2011 (YouTube) passed away yesterday, April 9th, 2014 due to Lupus complications. She was 27.
I question if I’m just an unattractive person all the time. I have questioned if any guy has ever liked me I feel unlikeable. I am never approached by guys. I get occasional stares by guys but when I stare back they look away. I also get those black guys and Hispanic guys that laugh and whisper about me. I get compliments only from women and its usually about my hair ( 2 years natural 4a type hair). Whenever I’m with my friend (she is black) she gets approached by guys all the time. Those guys take a glimpse at me but then always look away and ignore my presence. The ones that approach her are (excuse my French) Fuck Boys. So I tend to just step back and look away. I question if I’m just the “Ugly Friend”. Am I intimidating to approach? Am I really just ugly and need to accept it? Have you experienced the same thing? Please give me some advice ladies.
and stop this conflating “curly” hair with 4a-4c type hair.
my hair is not curly. it is KINKY. a “natural hair movement” that caters to “curly” hair is EXCLUDING KINKY HAIR. shit that works for curly hair DOES NOT WORK FOR KINKY HAIR. TRUST us when we tell you this.
Confession: I question if i’m just an unattractive person all the time. I feel unlikeable. I am never approached by guys. I get occasional stares by guys but when I stare back they look away. I get laughed at by black guys and hispanic guys sometimes. I get compliments but only from women and its usually about my hair ( 2 years natural 4a type hair).When i’m with my friend (she is black) she is always approached by guys and i’m simply ignored. Am I just intimidating? Any Advice ladies?
one month later, i’m rocking out with my curly fro :)
the only natural styles i’ve really been doing so far are wash and go’s and bantu knots. i love them both, but i want to continue with more hairstyles as my hair grows. i haven’t straightened or even blow dried my hair since my big chop. my hair is very curly and coily. it’s a mix between 3c and 4a hair type. it’s not quite long enough for an ponytail but it’s getting there!
so far my hair is already to the bottom of my neck when it’s stretched out. my hair goal is for my curly hair to be bra strap length. stay tuned as i continue my hair journey :)
I really question how guys view me. I get stares but they look away after awhile. I get stares and laughs from black guys & hispanic guys A Lot. So I really question if I’m just unattractive because no one ever approaches me EVER. I question if someone has ever liked me I feel unlikeable. My friend (black) whenever I’m with her she always gets approached by guys every where we go and they totally ignore me. It makes me feel extremely ugly. The only compliment I get from other people are from women and its that they like my hair (I’m natural 4a hair type). I try to stay positive and tell myself that not everyone will see the beauty within me but the right people will but it’s starting not to work anymore. Any advice ladies?
