Pastor Bans Hair Weaves in His Church

A Waco, Texas pastor is making waves for giving a fiery speech about the women in his flock. Pastor A.J. Aamir has grown wary of looking out over his congregation at Resurrecting Faith Church and seeing a sea of Yaki hair weave.

“Our black women are getting weaves trying to be something and someone they are not. Be real with yourself is all I’m saying,” Pastor A.J. Aamir told AmericaPreachers.com.

Pastor Aamir isn’t the only one who thinks hair weave is associated with black women who have low self-esteem because they can’t grow hair like other races. But it is probably the first time that a notable preacher has spoken publicly about the “false image” of wearing hair weaves.

Here is a comedic take on the late Notorious BIG’s hit track “Ten Crack Commandments,” titled “Ten Weave Commandments” by @Urbancomedynet. This video is strictly for women whose weave game is in need of serious help. This is 2012. There is no excuse for women to walk around with matted fur on their heads. Weave only looks good when it’s well-maintained and clean. Don’t just put weave in and leave it in for 6 months. Your friends won’t tell you if your weave smells.

The Ten helpful Tips are as follows:

1. Never let your tracks show (self-explanatory)
2. Always travel with your weave glue (or hair pins in case a track falls out)
3. Always pat your head when it’s itchy (patting won’t pull out the tracks or make your hair messy)
4. Never lie and say “it’s all mine.”
5. Never make your weave too greasy (there’s nothing worse than a greasy weave, believe me)
