I Love Ya But


by Weusi

This is in response to Shelli’s post last night and her hair last week …

I LOVE Shelli … like … I love her-love her … like … there really aren’t ANY words that can explain it.

She’s smart, hard-working, mature, a great communicator and just an incredible woman. And you’ve seen the pictures … she’s got a smile that makes the sun jealous!

She’s creative and a logic wizard that engages life with a zestful vigilance that makes my heart smile.

Then there’s the but … that’s not a typo … everyone has a but and a butt.

Shelli’s “but” is … is … is … is … that THING! That THING in life that I can’t tell you how I feel about, because there are no words to describe it! Just know that it’s not right … I love your natural hair …

YOUR natural hair … not the hair of someone else that you purchased, so it’s in your possession right now. I love you and YOUR hair. But, ummm … nah … I have no love for the hair extensions!

And no, I don’t hide it. But, she knows that I don’t dig that thing. It kinda creeps me out. I saw a piece of Chris Rock’s movie, Good Hair. That hair is someone else’s natural hair! That’s not cool! That’s creepy! Hair extensions are not right! And is there any federal regulations around hair? You don’t know if that hair is healthy! And according to that survey I did (see here), that was a major reason that people were wearing their hair natural. Why would you put sickly hair in your healthy hair? It’s SO not right! Wait … there’s more!

Actually … I don’t know what else to say except to warn you …

If your S.O. likes your natural hair, they will not like your hair extension … and, come on … you can’t really be mad at them about it, can you!?!

Now, the reality of the situation is that we know that you are gonna do what you do, so we will tolerate it. But, supporting the use of it … NAH … not even in a ponytail!

And, for real … isn’t this the best title of a blog post ever?!?! I think it’s hilarious!

Oh, and for the record … I’m not a butt man. I was so oblivious to Shelli’s butt that it took a gay dude to point out her curves to me! I was caught in the glow of her smile and the mystery of her eyes.

But now … it’s her wisdom too.

What? Did you think that I was gonna objectify this queen and talk about her butt? I told you already, I’m not a butt man!

  1. First, you now have me thinking that putting any human hair in another person’s head is absolutely GROSS!! I’ve never worn weave…and only had my hair braided with synthetic hair twice…and I’ve never really “hated” on it (unless it looked REALLY bad)…but now, I’m sick. *UGH*

    And…it took a gay man to point out Shelli’s curves…I’m dying! LMBO!! Good post, Wei!


  2. Shelli, get him for telling your secret, lol i didn’t even know it was a weave pony you were putting in, looks beautiful, sometimes we have to ENHANCE a little. looks natural all the same.


    • LOL! Anon, he didn’t blow it up, I said in my post last week that I added braiding hair to make the bun:). Someone asked how I made the braid, so I asked him to take a few pics of it last week. Then, when I set the hair down on the sink, he took the thumbs down pic and come up with the idea for the post. When I found this video and was writing the post about the clip-ins, I was like, “You should do that post now,” and he did:)!


  3. Brother, we understand your point of view. Sometimes, the hair extension is just a girl thing. To quote George Duke, “No Rhyme, No Reason”. Great blog title!


  4. so true Weusi…will love you anyway….there is just something about the real you that I love so much…it is so easy lo love and live with the things that you are…your mind, your heart, your soul, your drive, your love, your smile, your voice, your touch….they come so naturally and yes, I will continue to love you with the extensions because i know all of the other things that I love….but, i will accept the “other” hair because I love you…

    and as much as I would love locks, I will not buy them

    Happy B-Day


  5. I guess most men think this way because my husband is the SAME. I told him I was getting a sew in for our wedding and he was like “Ummm No… Grow your on hair!” ha ha ha
