We saw her real hair. Once again another stereotype amongst the black woman.

What was with that cornrow weave? I’ve honestly written her off with Oprah.

Ty lives in a whole different world then black women, and her attemps to relate are strange and come across as desperate.

Good hair/bad hair? Could that particular episode get anymor lame?

My hair is 4a textured and I have been growing my hair out. It is in a huge fro now that I wash everyday with goddess hair growth shampoo and conditioner here http://www.worldofentertainment23.com
I love this stuff. It grows hair very fast and strong. I also use silicon mix leave in conditioner to keep my cuticles moisturized and healthy. I eat a healthy diet and excercise 5 days out of the week. If I relaxed my hair would be touching my butt by now.

I gave away all of my curling irons etc and replaced them with natural hair products.

I too felt that Tyra was being fake by wearing cornrows on the show, even though she had good intentions.

I wouldn’t hate on a woman because she chooses to relax her hair (I too was in that state of mind that relaxed hair was the best hair) but I have matured and that has changed. I was once known to say “I will only stop relaxing my hair when they making relaxer”

I love my natural hair…. lets hope that those narrow minded sisters can see its beauty too!

U HAVE THE WHITE GIRL FLOW?? ARE U FOR REAL?U HAVE GOOD QUALITY HAIR? AS FAR AS I KNOW WEN U HAVE “GOOD” QUALITY HAIR IT IS “GOOD” IN ITS NATURAL STATE AND DOES NOT HAVE TO BE CHEMICALLY PROCESSED TO ACHIEVE THAT SO CALL GOOD QUALITY WHICH I BELIEVE IS NONSENSE, BECUZ ALL HAIR IS GOOD HAIR. 4 THE 1 IN THE BLUE, IF U DONT HATE THE TEXTURE OF UR HAIR Y STRAIGHTEN IT? CUZ ALL U ARE STATING IS THAT U STRAIGHTEN UR HAIR BECUZ OF HOW U THINK SOCIETY WILL PERCEIVE U. U LET SOCIETY DEFINE U AS A PERSON,BUT U SHUD BE THE ONE DEFINING URSELF AS A PERSON NOT ANYONE ELSE. & WHAT THE HELL IS AN AFRICAN COMB? THE STUPIDITY OF BLACK PPL TODAY.THIS IS Y SOCIETY IS LIKE THIS TODAY BECUZ OF PPL LIKE THEM. UNTIL WE BLACK PPL LEARN TO ACCEPT AND LOVE OUR SELVES FOR WHO WE ARE, DEN WE WILL NOT BE ACCEPTED OR LOVED BY ANYONE ELSE. WE BLACK PPL SHOULD BE PROUD OF OUR ETHNICITY AND EMBRACE OUR UNIQUENESS INTEAD OF BEING LIKE THE WHITE GIRL, THE INDIAN GIRL OR THE LATINA GIRL WHO MOSTLY HAVE STRAIGHT HAIR. BUT FUNNY THING, WE BLACK PPL STRAIGHTEN OUR HAIR TO PUT BACK THOSE SAME CURLS IN BY USING CURLERS ETC. I DONT GET IT. BUT WEN A WHITE GIRL DECIDES TO BRAID HER HAIR THE FIRST THING WE BLACK PPL SAY IS THAT SHE IS TRYING TO BE BLACK. Y IS IT ACCEPTABLE FOR OUR HAIR TO BE LIKE THEIRS BUT THEIRS NOT BE LIKE OURS WHICH WE DONT REALLY CARE TOO MUCH ABOUT? NEXT POINT…WHAT IS SO DIFFICULT ABOUT MANAGING NATURAL HAIR? PPL MAKE A BIG FUSS AND DEAL ABOUT NONSENSE. THEY ALL SAY STRAIGHTEN HAIR IS SOOOOOO MANAGEBLE AND NATURAL IS NOT. THIS STATEMENT IS SO UNTRUE IT MAKES PPL WHO SAY THIS IGNORANT. LIKE THE MOTHER WHO PUTS WEAVE IN HER 8 YEAR OLDS DAUGHTER HAIR SO IT CAN BE “MANAGEABLE” AND EASIER TO DO. LET ME TELL U STRAIGHTEN HAIR CAN BECOME JUST AS TANGLED AND HARD IF NOT GROOMED PROPERLY AND IF THIS HAPPENS IT TENDS TO BREAK EASIER THAN NATURAL HAIR BECUZ U HAIR HAS BEEN CHEMICALLY BROKEN DOWN. THE MOTHER ALSO STATES THAT PUTTIN WEAVE IN HER DAUGHTER’S HAIR CUTS DOWN THE TIME IN THE IT TAKE TO DO HER HAIR ON MORNINGS. AM WAKE UP CALL… HOW ABOUT U BRAID THE LITTLE GIRL’S HAIR WHICH CAN LAST FOR 1-2 WEEK(S) AND EVERY MORNIN U WUDNT HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT DOIN HER HAIR EXCEPT JUST MOSTURIZING IT LIKE EVERY 2-4 DAYS. EVER THOUGHT OF DAT? AND FOR STRAIGHTENING A 3 YEAR OLD’S HAIR…… 😐 MY GOSH U HAVE SOME SERIOUS ISSUESSSS WITH UR LIFE DAT REALLY NEEDS TO BE SORTED OUT. AND FOR THE WOMEN WHO HAS TO GO OUT HER RACE TO GET A CHILD WITH “NICE” HAIR LOL JOKE. U REALLY SHOW UR STUPIDITY RIGHT ON INTERNATIONAL TV….NEXT, WHAT DOES A LITTLE GIRL AT 5 YEARS OLD KNOW ABOUT LOWER CLASS. HER MOTHER HAS DEFINITELY BEEN BRAINWASHIN HER. SHE NEEDS THAT THOUGHT OUT OF HER HEAD NOW OR SHE WILL GROW UP AND TELL HER CHILDREN THE SAME THING, WHO WOULD PASS IT ONTO THEIR CHILDREN AND SO ON. I’M PROUD TO BE BLACK AND AM GONNA WALK WITH MY HEAD HIGH AND SHOULDERS UP. WHO HAS A PROBLEM WITH IT THEN THATS THEIR PROB NOT MINE. IT IS NOT THAT I’M SAYIN IT IS BAD TO STRAIGHTEN UR HAIR AND IT MAKES U ANY LESS BLACK. WHAT AM TRYIN TO SAY IS THAT WEN A PERSON WHO STRAIGHTENS THEIR HAIR FOR THE WRONG REASONS FOR EG. BECUZ THEIR NATURAL HAIR DOES NOT SHAKE/BLOW IN THE WIND OR HAVE THE “WHITE GIRL FLOW” OR U THINK U WILL BE ONLY ACCEPTED BY SOCIETY IF YOU HAVE STRAIGHT HAIR, THEN IT MAKES U APPEAR IGNORANT AND DISGRACEFULL TO OWN ETHNICITY.

I think that Black women here in the states and even around the world struggle with the (is my hair good or bad) questions. I believe that however you decide to wear your hair, you should believe that it is beautiful and you should be happy. You should not however, down someone else for their choice to be natural, relaxed, or however another individual wants to wear their hair. It’s not our place to tell another individual how they should wear their hair. And it’s also not some other person’s place to tell me that I shouldn’t even think about going natural. I’ve been transitioning for about 6 months now. And I have heard many different things from people. I’ve had people ask and say: What are you going to do with your hair once it’s natural? Your hair is so thick how can you take it? I think all curly hair is ugly no matter what race you are. What’s wrong with you? Your hair would have kept growing even if you kept a relaxer. More power too you. Only you Rachel only you.
I’m so fed up with peoples comments the next time someone asks me something I’m gonna be like. What am I gonna do once all my hair is natural? I’m gonna do me. And about my hair being thick, I’m proud of it. Most people would kill to have my thick hair. And that’s your problem if you think that all curly hair is ugly. Nice way to say that you aren’t prejudice. And why am I the only one that could do it? You could too. GOSH!!! What is wrong with people these days. Why can’t everyone stop meddling in everyone’s business and let people do what they please. Who cares if you wanna keep your relaxer, I want my natural curls back. It’s more fun to play with. I like the versatility. I can wear my hair straight or curly. As long as you are truly happy with your hair and you aren’t talking about someone else because of the way they choose to wear their hair….YOU BETTA GO GIRL!!!

Everytime I see this, I think they chose the wrong people. They should have a chose a nappy chick like me that could be confident and explain that there are others like her on sites like nappturality, there are teens younger than her that grew enough tits to just chop their hair off and if you were confident with yourself, you’d praise yourself instead of waiting on others to praise your natural hair. It doesn’t matter if you dont get any compliments, you like it, so it works.

I mean look at Tyra, she’s a hot mess, along with many of the sisters who are entertainers. Tyra, Beyonce, Rhianna, and Ciara, are probably some of the most low-self esteeem sisters on the planet, so what else can we expect from them. They try to basically sell themselves as product by using their bodies, sex, and their “so-called” beauty to appeal to mainstream, basically appealing to lame white people. Think about, when have we ever seen Beyonce or Tyra wear their own hair? It’s not that they couldn’t because they have enough money to get their hair done, its just that they want to look at white as possible with all of the that ugly, blond weave!
