How Older White Ladies in the Congregation Got Me to Weave

I am a newly, renewed member at the First Existentialist Congregation on Candler Park Drive. My spiritual community there is 90.9% not Black and is 85% over 50 years old. Scanning the room, you will see mostly white hair. I love my community and am so glad to be back in the fold. One lovely day, I was invited to book group and at least 7 older white woman feminists and 1 younger one, engaged me in one of the best conversations about hair oppression I have ever experienced.

The discussion is based on the comedic rantings of a young genius, Ms. Phoebe Robinson. Her best seller, “You Can’t Touch My Hair” is hairlarious! The book shifted me. In the past, I shunned had any hair enhancements as a rejection of myself and had taken a hard stance on several occasions on my path to naturalness. This book and discussion with my progressive White sisters woke me up to hair freedom and finding self-expression in trying out some extended two-strand twists! It’s not technically a weave, yet I have hair weaved into my own. It is my new protective style and a big step in trying new things I see in mainstream culture. Phoebe shared a funny story about her friend’s dog eating her weave and I realized I have been taking myself way too seriously!

    On the discovery Channel, a great deal more see these women from developing countries carry heavy loads leading of their heads, maybe you ever wondered why will not suffer from shoulder, neck, and jaw problems despite carrying these loads everyday? The simple reason is this-they carry the loads directly over their heads.
