If you’ve been looking for an alternative to hair plugs, braids, or weaving that is less painful and more aesthetically pleasing than a wig, this article is for you. In this article, we will walk you through the process of getting a hair tattoo from start to finish in order to help give you the information and resources necessary to decide whether it’s right for you.
The way in which many people perceive women with natural black hair who choose not to cover their heads is that they are lazy or too ‘busy’. This is a wrong perception, but it’s one that many people have been brought up on.
It’s easy to see why so many people are against hair tattoos for black women. There is the stereotype of the women with braids who sits in the back seat of their car in a perpetual state of ‘wrecked-ness’. Then there are the braided girls who come from broken homes and are living under the burden of bad relationships. When you combine both of these together, it leaves an impression that these women with natural hair are not capable or capable only to appear damaged, lazy, or stupid.
However, what many people don’t realize is that the same stereotypes are not only directed at black women with natural hair; they are also directed at white women who decide to wear wigs.
It’s important to remember that these stereotypes aren’t for real and exclude the fact that white women can grow their hair and choose to give up the wig for any reason. Hair tattoos are a great alternative because they allow women to show off their natural hair pattern, texture, color, and health in a very open way. It is also very simple to maintain because you can still wash and blow dry your braids as normal while they are still exposed
It’s important to remember that although the results of a hair tattoo can be beautiful, it is not a permanent fix for women who have ruined their hair through bleaching, over processing with relaxers, or using any chemical process for the purpose of straightening the hair. That being said, you can still tell people that you have hair tattoos if you would like to and explain that they are just a temporary alternative. But without fail, people will still make comments about how you should give your hair time to grow out and stop wearing braids so soon after.
A hair tattoo is a great alternative to patches, plugs, and wigs.
