From looking at some of the comments, it seems that the answers varied a bit.  Some women claim it’s their hair, so they can do what they want with it.  Some thought it would be nice to at least let your man know first if you’re planning on making a change, especially if you’ve been together for a while.  Some women claimed that even with them having natural hair, their men prefer for them to wear it straight all the time. I think I can see the points of all 3 sides; it is indeed your hair and if you’re embracing that, then you should do as you please.  Natural hair is a hot topic these days and with everything ELSE going on in this world, Black women feel the need to express themselves how they see fit; with no repercussions or critique from anyone.  Ladies: If you’ve been with your man for quite a few years, it should be a quick conversation about your plans to make a drastic change such as “the big chop”.  I feel that there is an immense amount of confusion about this particular convo; most Black women are under the impression that having this conversation meant they were asking for permission from their significant other, rather than just running it by him. As for the women who claimed their men liked straight hair, apparently it’s just their preference.  It does depend on your environment, and how you were brought up.  Some guys have seen their mother, sisters, and aunts with nothing but straight hair so that’s all they know.  Other men stated that straight hair is their particular preference, not because they’re trying to impose European standards onto their woman, but because they like to play in hair.  They just want to run their hands through without any obstacles.   What do you all think? Let’s speak on it…]]>

    I believe that a woman is definitely entitled to do whatever she chooses to her hair. I also believe that whatever her significant other likes and or whatever hair he likes to see his lady with should be considered. Not take the opportunity Feel like he’s being controlling. I personally had this conversation or shall I say “disagreement” with my wife and she chewed my head off because she felt I was trying to control her. I mean at the end of the day, if you didn’t have “natural” hair when we met you can’t decide to go “natural” 20 years later. That “natural” look is just not for everybody. There is time and preparation that goes into that “natural” look. This style is not a jump out of bed wet your hair with water and go on about your business type of style. You must put in some work getting your hair to look a certain way.
