I absolutely LOVE this!! Angela Simmons tweeted;

Just took my weave out.. Look how long my hair grew. Its so thick !!

This is particularly interesting because we recently had a discussion about naturals’ hesitance to embrace weave as a protective style.

What are your thoughts on Angela’s hair??

I am all natural hair and I am 100% black and I love every being of my hair

Your hair is beautiful! It’s sad when you have long hair as a black woman you have to let people know that yes, this is my hair and yes I’m 100% black!

She can get that coochie permed…knock her lights out…POW…POW…POW!!!

always some ignorant male with hood mentality trolling these sites. Programmed to act just like a disrespectful baffoon. You clearly belong on WSHH and not here.

These comments are interesting….. I have no clue how people predicted that her hair must be permed and not natural because if you know anything about weaves you would know that under all that weave your hair is braided and when you take the braids out that have been in for months what happens to hair???? It’s very very stretched out therefore you wouldn’t be able to tell really if she was permed or relaxed because its coming straight out of braids…. interesting…

I LOVE IT!!!!

Where ever too many women are gathered someone always finds some way to start some drama. Woman, just understand that people are different and there are different strokes for different folks. It is important that you know why you visit and don’t get into what we Jamaicans call “passa passa”.

[…] Angela Simmons and Rapper Lil Mama did the same thing in 2011 and 2012 respectively, but weren’t met with such positive feedback. […]

I HAVE NO PROBLEM BELIEVEING THIS IS ANGELA’S HAIR. IT IS NOT ALL THAT MUCH HAIR FRIST OF ALL. JUST THINK HOW LONG SHE HAS BEEN WEARING WEAVES. IF YOU ARE TAKING CARE OF YOUR HAIR UNDER A WEAVE YOUR HAIR WILL BE GROWING LIKE CRAZY. JUST THINK YOU ARE NOT COMBING IT YOU ARE NOT PUTTING HEAT ON IT AND YOU ARE WEARING A PERTECTIVE STYLE. ALL THIS WILL HELP YOUR HAIR TO GROW. I HAVE BEEN NATURAL FOR 2 YEARS AND 8 MONTHS AND I HAVE BEEN WEARING BRAIDS AND TWO STRAND TWIST AND MY HAIR IS GROWING… Read more »

Its gorgeous. My issue is that ALOT of black women put weaves in and fail to properly care for their natural hair under there. Also Vanessa is rich, she can afford the best weaves, the best styles, constant maintenance from professionals if need be. The average black girl cannot afford that. I also hate weaves that look fake. It makes me crazy. If you’re going to wear a weave, I should have to sit there and guess if its yours or if you bought it. When it looks fake you just look cheap and crazy.

I think that it’s absolutely lovely!

I think some naturals don’t embrace weaves as a protective style because if you are in the habit of wearing a weave and others know it’s a weave, when your hair finally does grow long; people won’t believe it’s your hair, as evidenced by one of the comments above. I know there are some people who are always going to believe that a Black woman wearing long hair must be wearing a weave, but people who see you on a daily basis at work, school, family, etc. will know it’s your hair. If people see your hair in various stages… Read more »

You are soo right! Thing is though, I wear my hair in protective styles pretty much 90% of the time. People who have met me since I began doing this, actually don’t believe my hair is real when I wear it out, because I’m so good at putting it up in tight styles. I think you can’t control what people want to think, weave or no weave. Ignorance is ignorance unfortunately. I agree about the cost of weaves. I’ve actually never had one and have thought about it every once in a while, but price and the worry that it… Read more »

BIG BEAUTIFUL HAIR GO ANGIE!! And a Beautiful Sister… After reading these comments…puts me in the mind of prejudices Blacks have endured with each other….Not light enough…Not black enough…When will it stop? SMH it shouldnt be this serious but it’s how we turn on each other over…. Nothing! LOL I mean this is absolutely nuts to get all up in arms about. Whether permed or natural the real beauty comes from within…we shouldn’t get so lost in the physical. And yes this may well be a Natural board but it seems to me many here (even the owner) welcome ALL… Read more »

Some of the naturals on here speak of “all naturals” as a cult!!! lmbo!!! get over yourself and realize its just hair!!!!! permed, straightened, twisted, glued, whatever it may be….give angela her props! and for all the “natural” nazi’s out there…Stop The Hate!!!

The Notorious ZAG

Reading these comments reminds me of all the reasons why I remain on the fringes of the “natural” hair community.

Shelby

wow!!! crazy big and awesome hair!!! I want my hair to grow to be this big!!! so cool.

Nice head of hair, but because you took out your weave, does that automatically mean you have natural hair ? I used to wear weave when I was relaxed and I would get relaxer touch-ups between each weave session and when I would take my weave out, I would have this HUGE Fro…all of this to say, How do you know Angela is Natural ? did she say so ?

cygnet
I’m patiently waiting for the day when my hair shrinks up to that length :-). I agree that there seems to be confusion about what is meant by “natural” hair. To me, it means hair that is not permanently altered by chemicals designed to permanently soften or straighten the texture/curl pattern. Yet the point has been repeatedly raised that some people think that when they undo their extensions, weaves, or whatever other hair add-ins or add-ons, that their own hair is then natural. May I propose a new term: “Actual”, meaning your own hair as it presently is on your… Read more »
Oh Bother

Good idea!

ding

people know what natural means. they’re just trying to play dumb.
but i feel what you’re trying to do. πŸ™‚

Engee

Her hair is bomb. Punto. And if most of ya’ll had it when you were permed, you probably wouldn’t have gone natural. Rock that weave Angela. It sure works for you.

Oh Bother

That’s an ignorant comment.

Engee

You probably feel concerned.

Sara

That was a very ignorant statement. Further more most natural women can grow there hair to that length in 2 yrs.. so why would we want to keep our hair permed and wait much longer to grow decent hair???

Rae
Her hair is really cute! I understand this is a natural hair site but I mean must we get so defensive?? has it even been confirmed that her hair is not relaxed?? I’m guessing Sara (above) and Angela were roommates in college? best friends? enemies? “I knew her in college… it wouldn’t surprise me that her hair is permed” I mean really, what kind of comment is that to make? How long ago were you in college with her?? People change their hair up all the time because they can. If you don’t “know” her now, then you don’t know… Read more »

amen girl. and further more. the site is called black girl long hair. not black girl with long nappy, kinky, coily, 3a/4c hair. Its just one picture one post that supplements the rest of the site. how do we know that’s not her natural hair. she may just have a straighter texture of hair. but honestly. ppl are getting way too uptight. perhaps… get a hobby or get a real career. maybe even meditate and reflect as to why u would have negative things to say about a person you don’t know. or so adamantly defend a blog that you… Read more »
Oh Bother
I don’t understand why people get really touchy when it comes to hair. Just because a person may not like her hair or may make a commentary about how it does not mean they are envious and that the natural hair “community” is an elite group looking down at all relaxed heads. I didn’t feel that way when I was relaxed and I don’t feel like an elite because I’m not. I really don’t think it’s that serious. People are taking these comments far too seriously. Personally I don’t feel anything about the photo. If she walked outside with a… Read more »

Some of the comments posted about Angela’s hair are pure envy filled hilarity. It’s amazing how we as naturals ask of society to judge us by the content of our character and not our hair texture, length or style, yet that’s exactly what some are doing. Really tho, if she has a relaxer what’s it to your scalp? Her hair looks good from the picture and all the haterade some of you are drinking won’t change that. I have only been natural 6 months. If I was natural 6 years I wouldn’t enter a “SOAP BOX DERBY” and try to… Read more »

And if you had been reading this site since its inception, you’d be well aware of its agenda and the readership it has always courted (naturals). It is best that BGLH tells us what the original MO of this site was and is. It seems many haven’t read this site long enough to understand why some people are peeved at someone who is possibly not natural being celebrated here. It is not about militancy. If you were a vegan and a dedicated follower of a blog to a vegan recipe site then all of a sudden a recipe for a… Read more »

I’ve “liked” this site’s group on facebook,and I read articles from this site and so many others like it all the time –and I have relaxed hair with no plans to transition/”go natural” in the near future. I think natural hair can be gorgeous, and I’m glad to see Black people supporting, helping, and learning from each other’s experiences. That’s why I frequent this site. However, if this was the first post I’d ever read on this site, I’d be reluctant to come back because of the comments. There really is too much negativity over one small issue, one person… Read more »

Also, after reading more of the comments towards the top, I’d have to say there is some condescension coming from naturals here, even between so-called “newbie” naturals and those who’ve been natural for the majority of their lives. To make my point of view clearer: I’m actually more of a relaxed “newbie”. I’ve had relaxed hair for about 6 years. Before then, I was natural, when it wasn’t so socially acceptable to be so. Everything I learned about natural hair-care, I learned on my own, or with some help from my mom, using the library and Google to find the… Read more »

I stand by every comment I made above. Your interpretation of what I am or am not saying is interesting. Let me hold the branch down so you can better reach your assumptions. – BGLH since it started has promoted and concerned itself with NATURAL HAIR. The readership has been gathered largely from that demographic. It isn’t rocket science to expect that the same demographic will have something to say about relaxed hair being featured on the site. – People are people, you cannot control how others feel but I am tired of the assertion that a majority of naturals… Read more »
