1. A texturizer IS a perm, just a milder version, imbecile.
2. "Naturally nice"? I can see you've still got your shackles on, fool. You're out there worshipping the white majority's hair like another self-hating black woman because you find it difficult to love your own. That is why you will continue with the perms, and that is why you hair will ultimately fall out before you get to be 50.
Side note: Has anyone noticed that the majority of black woman (african, caribbean, latino, etc) that process their hair are absent from the gyms? "oh, I can't workout, i'm just going to sit here and gain 300 lbs because i don't wanna ruin my fresh perm". Everytime I go to the gym, I only see natural women there. Why? Because we don't have to worry about sweating out a perm, having our hair smell like lye when we're on the treadmill, or worry about what the rain will do to our hair.
I think it's so sad that we are the only group of people that feels some sort of insecurity about wearing our hair natural; that we have to constantly worry about that chemical crack every 6 weeks.
You want your hair to look like it was just flat-ironed? Did it ever occur to you that our hair wasn't meant to look like that?

Maybe you foolios should do some soul-searching at take a long hard look at yourselves.
P.S. To the person that made that comment about Venus and her white male partner: Just because she chooses to date interracially does not make her any less black. Another thing I noticed: white men ususally partner up with natural-haired sistas.
Venus, rock it!
