Who said White moms can't braid hair?? *Pic*

Posted by   + Show Post

Last week my DD was talking to her friends dad (He's black) He was telling her if she wanted, he had a couple home girls who could braid her hair. She responded, No, my mom is going to do it this weekend. He gave her a double take and said, but your mom is white! No honey, you need a sista doing your hair. It's a cultural thing. White chicks just don't know what to do.

Well *Thumbs nose* to him. I did her hair and I think it looks just fine. What do you think?

Okay.  So is this one of your daughters ex-friends?  

Quoting paganbaby:

I thought it was funny for him to say and sadly many people have the same view. I myself lacked confidence to braid her hair for years, relying instead on my sister who's mixed or her friends to braid it. Even though, aside from color, my sister is no more "black" than I.

Hair is hair. Anyone can learn how to care for it not matter what you look like. Just a good message to get out.

Quoting 12hellokitty:

If you and your daughter think it looks good why do you care what other people think.....

No just because I am trying to wait on using products atm its burts bees shampoo lol really there is no hope if she has my hair its a family problem even hair dressers have problems with me. My hair gets knotted before they even finish combing I have terrible hair seriously and its thin so its even worse my hair just wont do anything ive tried every shampoo, hair balms, syrums, sprays, straightening, no poo etc my hair is a mess but I live with it lol every once in a while it will corporate


Quoting T-HoneyLuv:

Lol! There is a big difference between trying and just leaving it to look like

its never been combed EVER.

Have you tried Garnier Fructis Sleek and shine shampoo and conditioner? That works GREAT for my son.




Quoting junebaby11:

Hey hey hey my dds hair is frizzy and funky but there's nothing I can do lol I brush it it just goes back I refuse to put loads of products in her hair shes only two lol its crazy curly. But then agsin she has my hair so I look a hot mess no matter what I do lol






Quoting T-HoneyLuv:

Yep. If you cannot take the time to run a brush through your childs hair or smooth it down that is just sad.








Quoting paganbaby:

Omg me too! That's one of my biggest pet peeves. Especially when mom's hair is neat and looking nice then her kid has funky frizzy hair. No excuse.

Quoting T-HoneyLuv:

Lol! It looks great though! Its alot of work but I HATE when I go out in public and see kids hair a mess. Super fuzzy braids, uncombed. It drives me crazy!! Lol














Quoting paganbaby:

It's a full time job isn't it? I remember all the time and effort I put into dd's hair when she was young. When ds came along it was like a culture shock. He's a white boy so all I had to do was run a comb through his hair once and it's done!

Yeah, he's an idiot. (The dad, not ds LOL)

Quoting T-HoneyLuv:

I braid my sons hair all the time. We experiment with different types of cornrows and box braids. I also maintain my other sons locs. That was a stupid statement for him to make.

It means close friends or family. Have you not heard the expression?
