I’m not sure why this is considered some sort of phenomenon. White men have been rocking hair pieces, hair transplants and the like forever. But maybe it’s because black men are now doing it, it seems like something out of the ordinary.
Yesterday on Twitter, several images were floating around that showed black men in various stages of of baldness, then voila, they have hair. Hey, what’s good for the weaved gander, should be good for the goose right?
Take a look at a few of the photos:
I’m sure I’m not the only one that has heard of the “Hair Club For Men”?
What exactly do people think goes on there? Sure, they may not slap a lacefront on a balding man, but a hair transplant isn’t exactly like growing your own hair. Men are no different from women. There are those women who may rock a weave because their insecure about thinning hair, or balding issues. Why shouldn’t the same apply to men? Although most men won’t discuss their insecurities publicly, you better bet they have them. And balding? That’s a big issue with some men.
Now when it comes time to take off the wig or weave, that may be an issue.
The best advice that I can give to these men, is to let a woman know before hand. The same shock a man can receive from running his fingers through a woman’s weave, while thinking it was her natural hair, can apply to women as well.
Men, let a woman know. Be up front about your prosthetic hair.
Or if the man has one of those spray on beards? No one wants to wake up with black pillowcases because it wore off during the night. Wipe that beard off before going to bed. Treat it like make-up. Ask your boo for some makeup remover.
Men, go ahead and rock your weaves.
