  • India's Hair On The Grammy's

     

    So my permie girlfriend and I have a custom of calling eachother during certain shows (American Idol, The Grammys, etc.). The first call is usually sparked by someone looking "crazy" on the Red Carpet. As India Arie appeared out of her limousine I looked over at the phone in dread as it rang. I knew it was her and I knew she was calling to rip into me for India's Hair Style. This wasn't the usual "no Beyonce didn't wear that dress" kind of phone call. This was personal!.. I love India but to be honest I wasnt really feeling her hair last night. I'm into big hair but I thought hers looked a little messy but at the same time I felt the need to defend her somewhat. Am I the only one who feels "nappy guilt" when a prominent Nappie shows up looking "wild". Why is it that I feel this connection to someone I don't even know?.. ism is deep man! LOL

    I did not like the hair but I loved the earrings. I think it was the part on the side that messed it up. I think it would have looked better w\\o a part and just straight up and wild. It also looked like it had a warm comb pulled through.

    Not a good look yesterday.

    I'd have to disagree.

    I thought India's hair was GORGEOUS last night. Instead of nappy guilt I felt some pride that she was rockin' the blow out on the red carpet.

    I've had a lot of permies comment that my hair "looks wild" ... but then again, it is what it is. Not everyone can have a perfectly round coily fro 100% of the time. Sometimes you just have to go with the 'fro!

    (at least in IMHO)

    I saw the picture of her last night. I think she looked beautiful...hair and all. Also, India doesn't need any defending. She can obviously stand on her own two, and she's secure in herself. I always think it's interesting when people decide someone's hair is looking 'crazy' because it's lying flat to their head. I love 'em , but lookk at the photos of Beyonce,Mary J, and Jennifer Hudson from last night, they all had wack weaves..would anyone say they look crazy? I've never felt 'nappy guilt' when I see a nappy in a style I don't personally care for. What's to feel guilty about when it's someone else's hair? She didn't sign up to be the national spokeswoman for hair.

    I didn't watch the Gtrammy's, but from the pic posted I think her hair is gorgeous and I can't wait to get some length so I can rock something like that.

    i'm feeling the style. too and based on this picture i'm not sure if it's a blow out or not...could be a band out that got puffy

    I like it. I think it looks good and fits her. And WOW has it grown like lightning!

    I've worn my hair like that. As a big, floppy braidout though, not a blowout.

    Did she win anything any awards? I missed watching it.

    Oh by the way I do like her hair in the pic too, it looks like the dress/outfit looks nice too from what I could see.

    Maybe the only thing that may look not so great is her hair ends but other than that its nice

    ...

    I don't think it was all her hair

    ETA: Actually, I don't think it was her hair at all. It looks like a wig.

    ...

    Looked cute to me. But I'm with you. Didn't she just shave her head bald and draw some curly ques on her forhead and the sides of her head? Hmmm. Let's see. Let's say she did that in like late July. Then let's say it grew at max 1/2 inch per month. That's about 7 months and about what...3.5 inches of growth with absolutely no breakage or trims.

    Anybody else think she's sporting some type of funky wig or weave?

    Now if that is her hair in that pic...can a sistah get the hook up from her? I wanna get in on her miracle hair growth and length retention secret. :P

    I was thinking that when I saw her in July her head was shaved. It looks like one of those wigs Erykah and Lauryn wear

    I LOVE her hair in that pic, whether or not it's hers! I've worn my hair that way before.

    her hair was gorgeous...but i don't think it was her's either. it's still fly though.

    I thought her hair looked fierce. IMO her hair/outfit reflected her personality well, and she really was glowing.

    It wasn't her real hair though....it was extensions...the kind where you only braid the very bottom of the strand and leave the rest loose. I saw a close-up picture of her on the carpet and I could clearly see the little braids near her scalp. Whether it was her hair or not, I enjoyed her look. She seems like such a free spirit.

    Well I saw part of the awards but I did not see her. But all I have to say is, she looks HOT. I need to rock that, I think I might next time I wear my hair out.

    i thought it was rather gorgeous myself and can't wait to have that much hair to rock that style with some big hoops.
