Needless to say, I am not a fan of Andre Walker’s hair typing system. In my opinion this “system” simply encourages the “good hair vs. bad hair” issue. I was explaining the hair typing system to my husband when he made a very interesting statement. “Why does straight hair have to be number one?”, he said. “I don’t know much about natural hair or categorizing it but it seems to me that he has assigned them numbers from best to worst. It seems like he is saying that kinky hair is the worst.”
I had never thought of it that way. Perhaps my baby daddy is on to something. Share your thoughts.
