More young men are speaking out publicly about their disapproval of hair weave and wigs. Black women have been wearing hair extensions and lacefront wigs exclusively for decades.

Natural hair care forums are still around, but their numbers are dwindling as more women choose weaves.

A recent poll shows nearly 90% of Black women say they wear weave or lacefront wigs.

Some men are speaking out on manosphere forums. A majority of men on one forum agree that women wear hair weave to impress each other - not to impress men.

One man who recently got out of a 9 year relationship says he's struggling to find a Black woman who doesn't wear weave and heavy makeup.

"Ive never been a fan of heavy makeup and weaves but they are in abundance out here and on these apps," he wrote. "I've met a lot of women so far but only clicked with one so far... but im struggling getting past the weaves and heavy make up... am I wrong?"

One man responded, "I can’t do weaves. I like my women natural," while others expressed their dislike of weave.

One commenter took a different approach, saying the OP was "missing out on some quality Black women" by focusing on their hair.

"Without a doubt you are missing out on some quality black women if weaves and extensions are a deal breaker. It's culturally ingrained at this point. I see less blonde and Indian hair type weaves today from black women than I was seeing ten years ago. They tend to be textured appropriately and a lot of women look great with the right style. The box braids are going to destroy a lot of edges though, but I'd be okay with weaves so long as it looked tasteful and she actually took care of her real hair."

The rap world is mourning the senseless death of East Coast drill rapper Pop Smoke, who was probably more recognized for his signature braid extensions than for his music. Police are hunting four gunmen who broke into the 20-year-old rapper's Hollywood Hills rental and shot him to death early Wednesday. The motive is unknown.

Rapper Jay-Z began wearing hair units years ago when his own hair started thinning. The 50-year-old rap mogul reportedly dyes his gray hair black to match the custom hair pieces he wears. We wonder what Beyonce thinks about her old man taking his hair units off at night like she does.

There's no shame in rapper Offset's hair game. He is well-known for rocking braid and dreadlocks extensions in his hair. Someone should tell him you can't switch from braids to dreadlocks and back again.

People forget when singer Jason Derulo wore fake dreadlocks back in 2017. He didn't fool anybody back then, but he did bamboozle millions of female fans with that fake peen pic last year.

For some reason, NBA star Iman Shumpert thought he could get away with wearing braid extensions after rocking a hightop fade a month earlier. Hair doesn’t grow from high top fade to long dreadlocks overnight.
