Just a little bit from this article.
"Some critics insist that Douglas needs to properly represent the African American community, and how her hair looks is part of that. And yet, most of the negative comments about her hair are coming from other African Americans."
""I find it sad that I have seen more Black women post criticizing comments about Gabby's hair than I have comments of praise about her athleticism or adding color to USA Gymnastics since Dominique Dawes," writes Monisha Randolph at SportyAfros.com."
" Many African American women choose not to work out in order to protect their hairstyle, Randolph points out. "The last time I checked when you play a sport, you sweat. I know I do. And when a Black woman who has chosen to wear her hair straight begins to sweat, her hair will (not might) begin to revert back to its natural coily, curly, or kinky state," she writes. "Some of us are sitting up right now with our hair done but suffering from high blood pressure, borderline diabetes, obesity, and/or a lack of energy. Oh, but the hair is on point."
So what do you honestly think of Gabbys hair??
I will admit, on first sight I thought...the girl needs her hair done in a better ponytail, BUT after seeing her work magic..I didnt care as much anymore that her hair did not look as good as it could. I do not think she needs a relaxer or weave, I just think she needs a comb, brush, and a little jam and hair spary. Then put her hair up into a nice looking bun :-)
