When it comes to hair, not only do women battle each other, they also seek to impress their male counterparts.

Women who opt for weaves have several reasons but the ultimate is for protection of their natural hair from damage, especially during the harmattan season.

Others also believe that, wearing weaves makes them smarter since they do not spend more time at the salon or in the house trying to figure the style to fix for work or an occasion.

Again, they have the concept of spending less when they fix weaves; since it is worn for at least three weeks extending sometimes to three months and maintained with the help of creams.

The natural hair wearers largely have little need of visiting the salon to perm or style hair for work, school or other special occasions.

However, women mostly have to deal with critics from the male counterparts when it comes to their hair, be it weaves or the natural hair.

Some men do not reckon the habit of women wearing weaves with the view weaves and other additions tend to carry a foul smell if not maintained well.

Others also believe that weaves bring out the real beauty and also help their ladies to be more attractive especially when attending functions or events.

Some men who supposedly aren’t hairdressers, for some reason, are so concerned about women hair texture, hair colour and to some extent the brand of weave worn.

These male weave admirers even decide on the hairstyle for their partners or siblings; despite being expensive they cherish weaves like Brazilian hair, New Golden, Chocolate, Indian Virgin, Expression and among others.

So what is your take as a male, are weaves unnatural, unnecessary, and unattractive? Females how do you feel about being judged and objectified because of a hairstyle?
