Brothers, do you care if your woman straightens her hair?

Yes, very much so.

Would you date/marry a Black female who presses, relaxes, texturizes or otherwise artificially straightens her hair?

F. Leon replied:

I personally prefer Black women with their hair
natural

No weaves.
No relaxers.
No dreadlocks.

I do not like extensions or braids.
(especially if it is not their own/natural hair) or texturized hair.

I prefer short hair to long hair.

I believe how a woman wears her hair, says a lot about her inner self. Her thought processes, her pride, her vanity and knowledge about her race, culture and heritage.  All of which is very important to me.

Women are the first and subsequently primary transference of culture/preference and many of the things, which shape our (male) preferences in life.

The more I think about it, if a Black women wears her hair similar to that of a white women, the less likely I am to approach/deal with her on a meaningful (e.g. personal/romantic) level.

Although, what I have written is a bit superficial, meaning that I would not want to solely judge a Black woman on the way she wears her hair, it is impossible for me to *ever* deal with a white woman <period>. 

I will not give *any* "personal" attention to a Black female with blonde hair, that bright red dyed hair or bleached hair.  I don't even like looking at them.

In all directness, I consider them "girl toys" simply by the way they color their hair.

On the other hand, I seriously love a middle-aged sister with graying hair.  Not the type of gray hair where it is broken off and appears as if the sister has been worrying all her life, but a simplistically natural gray (even streaked) . . . sophisticated -- classy, just naturally "beautiful."
