Countess Vaughn's Lace-Front Horror


Actress Countess Vaughn speaks candidly about the thinning hair and scalp infections caused by wearing lace-front wigs...

Countess recently appeared on morning talk show The Doctors and revealed how wearing a lace front wig caused her to develop a severe scalp infection, which resulted in skin discoloration in the affected area, as well as dramatic hair loss.

During her interview Countess explained falling in love with lace-front wigs in 2004 and then developing an allergic reaction to the glue five years later.
"The red flag was the oozing from my ears, from my forehead, the whole nape around my head. The puss, that horrible smell, it was painful."
Countess says she was in denial that the lace-front wigs were the culprit and continued to wear them for six more months.

Silly hoes are still going to be getting their lacefronts done. They will continue walking around looking like the people from Alien Nation (older heads know what I mean). I'm happy to see a lot more black women feeling more comfortable in their skin and going natural. Black people do not have straight hair like whites. Blacks need to stop trying to look like Europeans and stand up and be the African kings and queens as their ancestors were. We may not know which tribe we are from, but following behind the Europeans is leading to our own destruction. Black women can't even go into water because they are scared of their hair getting wet and all that other BS is silly as hell.

Thank you Snitch for putting this up. I touched on this story in the Naomi Campbell thread. Weaves and wigs are meant to be work ON OCCASION, to accessorize and switch up your look. They are not meant to replace your real hair. This issue is becoming a real problem in our communities. There are young girls in their 20's losing their hair permanently due to this unhealthy addiction to weaves and wigs.
The absolute kicker to Countess' story for me is that she was on the talk show ROCKING A WIG! Enough is enough.

It's a shame, right? I know this young woman who attends USC and spends her financial aid on expensive weaves all the time and cries broke to her family. I can't even deal with the madness.

I have never worn a full weave or lacefront but I loved a drawstringed ponytail. I did the big chop 6 months ago because I had read that relaxers are linked to cancer and my ends were slightly thining. I was kind of worried because I work in a corporate setting. Best health and beauty decision I ever made. I actually feel more confident than ever and having short wirely hair is only seem as a negative to Black men because Non-black men love Black Women with Natural hair.

Women compete with each other all the time. Who are you wearing push up bras, heels, tight clothes to show off your azzes for? Men. Women are always trying to out do the next woman for the attention of men. This is the main reason that black women wear weaves. If your hair is not long, then you are not desirable.

@10:29, I know for a fact that this is true. Growing up I had thick long hair, but the nappy comments got to me. It also hurt to maintain it. my hair was very course.I begged for a perm and my hair fell out and was never the same. I stopped getting perms but I wear a weave and it makes me feel good about myself.

Tippie Toes said...

However this reminds me of my mid-life crisis when turning 40. I have nice hair but for some reason I thought I wanted a blonde weave and this was my immediate reaction O-o : ( ???. I wore that shit on the train looking like a broke down FAITH all day at work. Got home had that trunk show weave removed! STAT

Do you know how many black men overlook a natural black woman?

I taught black females lived their life based on whats healthy
(in and out) and not what some black mans deem attractive

If some black males find 'MANGO WEAVES' attractive, would u wear it?

If some black males find 'DIRTY PANTIES' attractive, you would put them on?

If some black males find 'MUDDY TENNIS SHOES' attractive, i guess you would put them on for the prom, wedding or clubbing?

It looks like with many Black females, both COMMON SENSE and HEALTHY LIFESTYLE has become a distant rumor for the attention of some stupid black males

I will say this there isn't anything word with want to enhance your look from time to time (i'm talking about hair) I mean men do it all the time there are black men out there with blonde color tip in their hair, or with dreads, or fades and etc but I will said this if you are going to take that risk please make sure you can keep up with the proper treatment... I'm not a hair stylist or anything but I do have friends in the hair industry and they always tell their clients to book with them every two week just to wash and treat their real hair from the wigs, weaves and etc..... I feel it is the clients responsbility to make sure they keep their end of the bargin... not the stylist they just do their job and have other clients to attend to also... to the comment earlier about black people don't have straight hair... that comment is false not all people have nappy or kinky hair... I myself an a black man and my female family members have straight hair without perms or relaxers or straighten combs.... it is just depends on the genes of that person family.... but anyways ladies and fellas if you decide to get a wig, weaves, dreads or add color to your natural hair please make sure you do the proper treatment to make your hair healthly and strong... book your appointments every week or two weeks to maintain your hair and let it breathe for a while....

Besides the dust, dirt, mold, and bacteria that weaves hold, why would you want another woman's hair on your hair? Why do you crave someone else's hair in order to feel "better" about yourself?

I’ve been natural for 3yrs now and in the beginning it was difficult and still is at times. I love what naturally grows from my scalp and the longer and thicker it grows so does my confidence and the love for my natural beauty. In the beginning it was rough transitioning to natural but when I want to go swimming I jump right in, when I work out I’m not afraid to sweat or ruin my hair. You should see the looks from weave and wig wearers when they get trapped inside by the rain and I walk out like so what. A lot of men actually hate the “I can’t sweat out my perm” “I can’t go swimming my hair will get wet” type women. Another reason some black men choose other races, they don’t have these ridiculous my life revolves around my hair mentalities. They can take these women places do different things and they not flip out melt like the wicked witch of the west over a little water. And ladies if you’re going to wear lace wigs get a gluesless lace and avoid the glue, it wasn’t the wig that caused her disgusting issue it was the glue.

No one even question why such a topic made it to this dumb show? Funny how they dug her up out of anonymity to embarrass black folk (specifically women) on national television with this wig story. As if lace front wig glue is some kind of national health crisis that needs to be addressed. The only reason they have her on the show is to reinforce black stereotypes and make us look crazy. Most Americans, black white or fuschia, are not affected and never will be affected by a fucking wig glue allergy! This big cow took the bait they gave her without even thinking twice.

People like to bring up self love as if the person they are talking about is lacking something. What about the role media, men, family, random chicks play? On the real Kim K is famous because of Niggas and Niggas made her famous because she is NOT Black with a FAT ASS. To turn around and be confused as to why a weak minded woman would change herself for the same attention is bullshit.

Nigga, if you see a woman with a ridiculous weave she is struggling to meet a standard of beauty that the main stream has set.

Yes she would look better with whatever she was born with but until she is ready to see that, she will be hiding behind what she believes is YOUR fantasy.

i was thinking the same thing. She has been wearing wigs/weaves for how long now, 15-20 years? i've only saw one photo of beyonce with her real hair. i just hope she has the right people taking care of her hair.

also, let's not forget white women who were actresses were the first to start wearing wigs/weaves (check out old B/W tv shows and movies). and now-a-days, most of these women celebrities have some kind of hair enhancement (even the ones that don't need it). so stop trying to make this a "black thing".

until this day British men in politics and government service still wear wigs.

@TippieToes you are right but we are talking about the chick who wears a wig 24/7, along with fake contacts, fake eye lashes, butt implants, puss, and a funky smell coming from her scalp. See Countess above. Basically what is this woman's malfunction and why are there so many chicks like her?

Anonymous said...

I had a jerry curl back in the day...my hair fell out. I moved on to a perm....my hair fell out even more. For the past 5 years I have been natural and loving it. I wish more black women would embrace being natural more because it's healthier, rather than talking about natural v. weave as if that crap makes any sense. I got tired of living my life the way people wanted me to and started loving who I am...a black female with course hair.

Tippie Toes said...

@Italk
Oh yes I find what Countess has done and other do questionable as well. Every one know the scalp needs to breathe so covering it up ALL DAY EVERY DAY is sure to cause problems.

But what's annoying is this post is about Countess and how she made the mistake(s) with her own hygiene parlays into what men want. If COUNTESS did all this for what she thinks a MAN wants her head is on wrong! You fail when you change yourself for someone else other than yourself.

The shit simple. Our children more or less, have grown up with TV dictating standards of beauty to them. The same young black boy that grew up seeing only white girls cast as beautiful and sexy on TV...had a sister that grew up seeing long flowing blonde and black hair as the standard of what beautiful hair is. So as Willie Lynch would have it, many of those boys grew up feeling that having a white girl (or anything non-black) was some reaching some sort of pinnacle of status...while many black girls who grew up wanting longer, straighter, flowing hair, watched the black boy they had a serious crush on go running to them white girls or to mixed race/light skinned chicks with "better hair"... and it was a wrap for natural hair.

A lotta shit goes in cycles, so hopefully weaves and all that shit cycles out for a while, and black women embrace the hair they were born to have. Unfortunately, while plenty of brothas love and even prefer the black woman to the rest, it goes without saying that a lotta them negroes are GONE and won't be returning "so to speak". I hope that our next generation of afro-american / mixed children will be more self-loving and less influenced by what is portrayed as "beautiful" by media. While a lot of standards of beauty are still quite retarded, at least our children can regularly find people that share their appearance on TV much more often and easily than past generations. We as parents/mentors have to do what we can to influence them (without being ignorant or racist about it). The shit isn't easy..

BLACK IS BEAUTIFUL.

Ms. Lee said...




This is an interesting topic and I am about to ramble, but hopefully some objective is met…

1. Ms. Vaughn had all of the warning signs and then the concrete evidence that her style of hair was hazardous to her health. The fact that she continued on with said hairstyle for years is unsettling.

2. Many of the comments here employ the idea that a lot of people—mainly Black women—are extremely impressionable and will do whatever is ‘popular’ to garner the attention of men. I understand that slavery still has an influential role in how many of us view ourselves and behave, but these notions are faulty, and while I rarely ever mention what ‘other’ women do, let us not forget that White women of European descent in this country are the originators of the ‘Nip Tuck’ regime. Joan Rivers is a living, yet fossilized example. Since 1953 and even prior to that, White women have been altering all of their looks in hopes of landing everything from ‘Playboy’ spreads to wedding proposals, and invitations to dinners at the White House.

There is barely any banter when the ‘other’ women ‘perm’ their hair to turn their strands curly, yet when we ‘relax’ ours, it makes world news and we all are allegedly suffering from self-hate. Even the ‘Black women relax their hair’ topic gives way to the idea that somehow, Black hair needs to be tamed and relaxed because it is unruly and uncivilized. Perhaps some Black women just simply find it easier to maintain chemically straightened hair? Maybe some Black women also find it easier to maintain their natural roots, both figuratively and literally? Or perhaps some Black women like to wear artificial hair, and this choice has nothing to do with men, video vixens, reality stars, or low self-esteem? It just amuses me how the media and even some Black people have tried their hardest to make ‘weave,’ ‘hair problems,’ and ‘Black women’ synonymous. My hair is a mixture of both African and Korean textures. I have worn my hair naturally curly, straightened, dyed, braided, shaved, etc. The issue here is not really the hairstyles themselves, but how they are perceived when certain groups of women wear them. In my opinion, that is blatant systematic discrimination.

3. My assessment of this topic is not a ‘Black women’ vs. ‘White women’ comparison and contrasting issue at all. I am just merely pointing out the blatant historical, social, and cultural hypocrisies that run rampant and are widely accepted in this country (and probably in other countries and parts of the world).

4. Also, do we even care that Kim Kardashian has curves (that were picked out from a body catalogue and paid for)? She has only pranced around with rappers and athletes. While I am not trying to declare that all rappers and athletes are shallow, many of them are. No man of any real and integral substance would ever entertain a Kardashian-type woman.

Lastly, if you are only attracting men who fashion you after a group of uneducated, pseudo-celebrity, silicone-filled, botox-saturated, Malyasian-bundle wearing, sex-tape-and-other scandal-having bimbos, perhaps you need to reevaluate those men, and most importantly, you need to reevaluate yourself.

I hate weaves. The only hair extensions I wear or box braids or twists and whenever I get them done, I get them as thick as my pinky finger. I don't get the tiny braids or zillions that make you bald. Weaves make my hair itch, my scalp sweat, and I feel like I have a hat on my head!

If Black women wanna wear a weave, fine. But some Black women wear weaves all the time and become addicted to it. Then they lose their edges like Naomi Campbell.

Why all the hate and comparison to white women? Countess admitted she never took the shit off her head, didn't keep it clean and her hungry ass probably sweat like a water heater 24/7. If you don't wash your hair/ass/clothes it will and you will smell. And I hope she knows she wont have any eye lashes with all that glue either. Nothing wrong with extensions, but pay for the best. Forget the false lashes, buy Latisse and yours will grow. Too many women take the cheap way out and this is what you end up with. Naomi's baldheaded ass is probably wishing she went with better extensions rather than those glue-to-your-head wigs. But at least that fro matches the naps underneath it.

In regards to the hair topic within my comment, I can not and will not take a concrete side because the issue is too entirely complex. Hair is a statement--be it personal, political, spiritual, social, cultural, and/or historical. I will, however, continue to believe that hairstyles are objectified based on the group of women wearing them. The fact that opinions, feelings, perceptions, imagery, and discussions change based on which group of women are wearing certain hairstyles exhibits systematic discrimination, in my opinion.


1st 3:38---

Thank you, and yes, extensions/weaves/wigs are worn by many non-Black women and men (from America’s Founding Fathers to Queen Elizabeth II). The thing is, when they alter/altered their hair with such, their self-esteem, self-worth, self-respect, and cultural identities and awareness were/are never questioned.

The fact that Ms. Kardashian was brought up in this conversation speaks volumes. No one should be using her as an example for anything other than to highlight and then dismantle the miseducation and dysfunction of popular culture in America.

I am going to buy me some weave when I get paid tomorrow. I like the wavy weave because it brings out my exotic eyes. Men stay after me even with my weave. I am me and will continue to be.

Basically, according to 4:12, white women do it, so black females need to follow suit

Based on the comments so far, Black females have no identity of their own unless it comes from "White females beauty practice" and "Black males attention grab"

@Reds4real2006 - A lot of Black Americans have very little insight on who they are and where they come from. As a matter of fact there was an official movement for all Black people to "mix in" with White people in order to survive and gain employment. So although your 4:37 comment may be sarcasm it may have more truth than you intended.

Again, "a lot", not all. There are tons of Black women who are not tragic and searching for identity no matter what their hairstyle may be. But those women are not interesting enough to write about on a site like this. We are here for the tragedy and drama.

Then that Fake Hair be touching you when she sleep or she give you a hug. The worst is when the real hair peeks out from under the weave and just be staring at you, Like what nigga???

Gay Black men are a detriment to the Black community and the modern image of Black female beauty. PERIOD.

Thanks to gay men and drag queens, I can't visit a Black woman's Instagram without her looking like her face is painted in the entire palette of oil paints! That damn MAC cosmetics shit should be for the runway and should STAY on the runways! Yes, it is pretty to look at but that mess will tear your face up.
(Fake eyelashes should be for formal gatherings. If I see one more bald-edges, pimply-faced, bad weave wearing hoodrat wearing fake eyelashes with sparkles on them in the grocery store I don't know what I will do!)

These gay Black dudes nowadays are a hot ass mess. In the past, at least they were amongst themselves and tried to not change anybody else who was straight. But why is it that so many single Black females getting gay male friends to pick out their clothes and do their makeup? I don't need a man to tell me how to be a woman! If a gay man is going to my hair, fine. But don't turn around and tell me how to look more like a woman!

These damn lacefronts and blonde wigs is some drag queen mess. Black women are naturally beautiful but we are destroying our selves trying to look like white women and drag queens.

My heart goes out to Countess. She was so cute back in the day. And her hair always looked good. She always had a new hair-do. Seeing her now, she doesn't look well at all. Who knew something as simple as hair could do this much damage to a persons health and life? One thing that bothers me a lil is that she's still wearing weaves/wigs. Why not go all the way natural?

If something like this happened to me I wouldn't go near any form or type of weave. I had a weave when I was younger and it itched so bad that after 2 days I had to take it out. I absolutely hated it. I pity all those women that have lost their edges because of weave. After i noticed it pulling on my hair follicles after the first time I had it in, there's no way I'd continue to put something in my hair that's that damaging to it. How can a woman not care about her hair UNDERNEATH the weave? That's crazy.

And even after Countess noticed it was starting to smell etc, she still continued to put weaves in her hair. Is it some kind of addiction? Do women that wear weaves not give nary a damn about their health and their hair underneath the weave that they just don't give a damn either way? The price of vanity, smh!

SN; I've heard men say that some women that wear weaves have very poor hygiene. And that their weaves stink. Especially women who wear weaves and smoke. Judging by Countess noticing that a bad smell plus other unsanitary things were going on in her head, yet still continued to wear weaves for 6mths after the fact, I'm inclined to believe the things men say about women and their weaves. The smell alone would have had me snatch the damn thing off my head and burn it. Then go about trying to get my health in order ASAP! As much as I empathize and sympathize with Countess. Her continuing to wear the weave 6mths after knowing that it was causing her problems, I don't agree with, nor understand. My health comes before a damn weave. She put her health in jeopardy for a damn weave. A peice of hair, meanwhile her real hair and scalp was suffering. Smh!

All theseso called "men" talking, or bisexual men are the first to purchase an s curl kit, and design their wack beards, or smooth it out and color it, looking like those homos in the hair magazines with tattooed on beards and goatees. You want natural? I dare any man to walk outside nappy headed without texturizers and wave caps. Let's see how long that lasts. But when a black woman dares to exercise her choice in how she wants to style her hair, its a freaking problem. Give me a freaking break.

1:15 was spot on. This mentality can be traced back to upbringing to find its origin. It is no different than the tug of war between dark and light skin. When I grew up, only light skinned black women were touted as pretty on television. This had a whale of an effect on black girls of my generation. So to think that the white standard could not also have a lasting effect on what black girls see as beautiful hair would be more than ignorant. Lupita did not think she was beautiful and in fact hated her dark skin until a black woman that she knew had favor with the white masses told her that she was beautiful. It cannot be denied. Blacks have been subjected to white-defined standards of many aspects of life. Think.

I remember when contess was on the sitcom 227 as a little girl and she has never had any hair she had a jeri curl then and it was a small curly fro so I can kinda understand why she had lace fronts and weaves she never really had to much hair that I know of but if u get weaving and lace fronts u posse to take them out and shampoo your hair and condition it not leave them in for long lengths of time hell Wendy always say she takes those heavy wigs off and she has a few different wigs but she takes them off.thats what happens when you leave the wigs and weaves in the hair for to long it doesn't let the scalp breath and it's moist and it sets in for bacteria to breed it's not your hair take them wigs off after a week or so and wash and Condition ur hair let the scalp breath this is a lesson lady's

The Real Fedup said...

@9:54


I agree. Wigs and weaves should be temporary. But not permanent and not taking care of the hair underneath!!!! A woman needs to wash there hair,condition, trim regular, and let there hair breathe! I say go natural and take that chemical bullshit out. I can understand a woman putting a wig or weave for temporary hair style or work purpose. But when you get home--- take that bullshit off your hair! Let your scalp breathe and take care of it!

I'm tired of seeing some black women don't take care their own hair then complaints that can't grow it. It's like do you even know the basic? Look at Naomi, Beyonce, and Raven Simone as prime examples......hair is damage underneath. They don't take care of their hair out there scalp!

I don't understand why people are suprised that unkempt weave stinks. Where do you think the saying "white people smell like dogs when their hair gets wet" comes from?

Naturally straight hair grows from heads that create more oil and collect dirt much faster than naturally kinky hair. It boggles the mind that some of these weaved up chicks will go weeks or months without washing the weave.

On the other side of the coin, it's funny that a lot of these natural chicks act like they are really doing something special, or making some deep statement for being natural. It's just HAIR. Your mamas and grandmamas already did that thing back in the day! And half of them were wearing AFRO WIGS. My mom told me that most people were too lazy to keep their fros shaped up properly, or didn't have the right grade of hair to maintain an appropriate afro, so people would just slap a wig on. Even Naomi Campbell has been wearing an afro wig recently.

There's nothing new under the sun.

Okay finish watching Countess interview and here are my thoughts.

1. WTF she continued to wear these wigs knowing full well she had symptoms of an infection--- puss, redness, thinning hair on her hair line, and itching! Either she chose to ignore it or she dumb as hell. Because clearly honey your body was screaming for help. Lacewigs are the worst at of all wigs because of the glue and tape applications. Yes it looks nice, but the worst when it comes to application. Women can get infections out of this and even die from infection if there is any open wounds that can enter the bloodstream. 

2.  Why the hell is she wearing a wig in the interview? *blink blink*
It appears she backpedaling her statements. If this interview was to bring awareness to the problem, then show the solution.  So her advice it slap another wig on your head? She had infections. She needs to cut her hair and start over. Conditioner,natural oils, scalp messages,trims the whole nine yard. She needs castor oil from the thin edges as well. Someone needs to educate her on natural hair maintenance to restore her hair. As well she needs to eat right, exercise, and take vitamins.

 Clearly she is not taking care of her hair. When she said she wore this shit 24/7 it informed me she do not take care of her hair underneath nor have any self esteem to say fuck it this shit is making me sick. Let me take it off.
I am natural myself. I went natural in 2011 and haven't look back since. Best decision hands down. It was rough at first but my hair looks 100 times healthier. Perms was nice but overtime it thinned out my hair and I said that is it. It's time go me to cut the shit out and really take care of my hair.
The problem with some black women they were not taught how to really take care of their natural hair and use proper products on their hair type. The problem stems from some black women are lazy to take care of their real hair. They keep placing a wig or weave on top of there heads to the point that they begin to believe its their own hair and ignore what God given them on top of their scalps. Black women are the only women who seems to want to appear to want white woman hair texture. How you seen any Asian or white women going to the beauty supply store and requesting to put our "hair texture" on their heads?Spending hundreds of dollars to get Kinky hair? Have we seen this? You can't compare hair color to completing buying hair that is obviously not your own hair texture.
The self hate needs to stop with some women I see. Some of the weaves looks awful on some people at times.

I can understand wearing a wig,weave, or extension for temporary  style.  But 24/7? Wtf!?! Where is the time to clean the scalp and moisturize? Not to mention we all sweat and have build up over time. Lord her scalp must of smelled awful!

I tell you the other day I went to a gas station and saw this black cashier had a lace wig on her head. Her hair line like look like the "Planet of the Apes" character. Wtf it looked horrible!

Yes, it's really funny to see comments coming from black men joking and laughing at black women's hair. I guess it make them and you feel superior to black women. Black men would never go to a white gossip site and disrespect white women's hair and get away with it. They would shut them down and block them for life. It's always fine to disrespect black women and make them the butt of a joke.

Fake hair is fine for someone that needs it. Someone with an illness or situation, where their hair growth is impaired. Black women are so beautiful! with their gorgeous skin tone, curvaceous body, full lips and textured hair. They are the most unique & attractive looking females on the planet. Other races want to copy their physical features and pay money to have what you do naturally. Sad some of us cannot see the beauty within ourselves. Why would you want to change that and become like everybody else?

Most men don't like weaves, wigs or any kind of fake hair, unless it completely matches your own and compliments your look. Not make you appear as something you are not and blonde does not look good, period!!! Up close long fake hair looks ridiculous!! And I don't care where you part it at or how much of your own hair you tryna blend, it still looks fake. You don't have the Beyonce, Kim K, Rihanna etc money to buy $5000 hair pieces and have them professionally installed. These women have pro stylists to create an illusion and if all else fails they got photoshop. You just look ridiculous.

Your natural hair looks so much better, sexy and beautiful. Learn how to take care of it and style it and regain your power. I understand the appeal of fake hair. It's liberating for black women to finally have more creative freedom with their appearance. But it's become an addiction and you no longer feel attractive without it. In reality you didn't look attractive with it.

Anonymous said...

I hear a lot of people saying but white and other women wear extensions too. But here is my issue, they have extensions that MATCH THEIR HAIR.

You cannot deny that there is a deeper pyschological issue at play when a woman wears hair that is not only not hers but also nothing like hers.
It's like a girrafe wanting to walk around in a zebra coat. There is something wrong with that.
The fact that the hair that black women love so much looks absolutely nothing like their own is sad.
People say black hair is high maintenence. High maintenence compared to what? Weaves? of course it is. All real hair is high maintenence compared to weave. Just coz a white chicks hair is blowing in the wind doesn't mean it's healthy, or that her scalp is healthy. It all takes work.
And most of the women sayin natural hair is hard work are the ones who have never had it. Natural hair is as much work as you want it to be.
But lets stop acting like it's healthy for people to be so attached to features that aren't theirs.
Andb efore anyone gets on my case, let me clarify, I'm talking about the women who would rather die than let the world see their natural hair, who live in weaves and wigs

I enjoyed reading a lot of these comments. As an African American female born in 1970, our parents relaxed or hot combed our hair. Your hair, be it you were light or dark skinned represented your personal style or taste, but more importantly your investment in maintaining your personal beauty. We went to the salon every two weeks for a wash and blow dry and every eight weeks for a touch up. We had short cuts like the symmetrical Salt n Pepper bobs etc. Whatever the style, it was clean, manicured, tight and most importantly....OURS. I feel so sorry for these lost female of our race today. I went to the hood nail salon last week for a eyebrow wax and I wanted to regurgitate after looking at all the cheap bad yack and horribly glued on eye lashes. Not one of these broads was attractive per se. Their skin was nasty looking, fat out of shape wearing leggings and just looking stank nasty with fake ass hair. If I was a black man, I wouldn't want you on my arm either. black is beautiful if its taken care of. It's unique. I'm 45 and look 30. People never believe my age. My hair is natural and my skin is flawless. I eat right, exercise and keep it tight. stop ignoring the beauty you naturally have. the hood needs to stay away from junk food and weaves. ASAP!
