Actress Joy Bryant was spotted over on essence.com rambling on about her love for weaves. Here is some of what she has to say:
“Ima ride ride wit this weave, die die with this weave!!
“Let me break it down for you:
See, I loooooove taking new hair out of the bag, combing through it with my fingers, holding it up with my two hands, and burying my face in it. Mmmm, mmmm, mmm! Nothing like a new batch of zig-zag curly to get your self esteem out of the dumps!
“The feeling of getting my hair, I mean, my weave done over. I feel human again. I feel sexy. I feel powerful. It makes me feel…it makes me feel…it makes feel like a natural woman!!!
“I can be whatever, whoever I want to be with the stroke of a sewing needle…
“With long brown tresses and a tan, I’m Pocahontas, ’cause I got Indian in my family. With easy waves, I AM bohemian rhapsody goddess personified. And now that I got blond highlights! What!? I know I look like Beyonce! You can’t tell me nothing! Uh oh, uh oh…
“And then I looked up from my computer, and caught a glimpse in the mirror of my head minus the long weavy locks. I looked crazy! Awww hell naw! I looked over at the new batch of hair sitting off to the side waiting to join forces with me. Damnit, I’m trapped, I thought to myself. I can’t let it go. I am powerless over it. Just when I think I’m done, it pulls me back in!”
A weaveaholic? YES — that she is. All one can do is respect her personal thoughts and feelings on the subject matter, as she plans to roll with the weave until the weave falls off; she wants you to know that, and… That is all.
