Stereotypes!!!

cool

If you think that's how straight hair is brushed, you should see my hair. I have long, long straight hair and when I wake up, it looks like an afro (well, a very, very matted one). How it happens? I have no idea. It's a pain to brush out. I'm thinking of cutting it over summer so it's not really long anymore.
Glynda Evans
But my hair isn't like this .. why didn't they do a mixed variety of BLACK hair .. not all of us have CORSE HAIR!! 😤
Confused Girl
buzzfeed, yellow, bold whatever your calling yourself, this video was tooooo much way toooo much. come on now!! and i cannot help myself but watch this next video about "10 words that mean something different to black women" i wonder how your gonna offend us next.
Confused Girl
who's idea is this???? so wait the black woman goes to a salon an her hair is too much effort to deal with so the hairdresser leaves??? and since when do black people straighten their hair that way and to have her say ouch... believe it or not black peoples head is not tough when taken care of ffs!! i know it may not seem like a big deal, but if your gonna do something then please do it properly.
The Weiss
Stupid video. I'm sorry you made it.
proud redneck
DNA that's why
Melissa Call
i love it when black girls have like a lot of braids its so pretty
Wafle Chan
Man, not all black hair is curly...
whofoji?
Yess My Girl laquetta vs mary ugh

I clicked on the video thinking of it as 'black hair' (like hair that is black in colour) then realising that it meant black people's hair 5 seconds into the video
tropie cali
some of these apply to me too lmao im not black but I have some crazy curly frizzy hair
linmirdamnson
Wait, why did you guys title this "Why Black Hair Is Different" when you gave us no explanation at all and just a side by side view of a white person and a black person?
Olivia Suntjens
black hair is so pretty but i clicked thinking it would compare COLOURS instead of RACES.
Jae Mariiie
Because we all are unique that's why we not suppose to look the same race is gods way of seeing how we treat people that don't look like us how we treat other humans .
Luci Chan
I don't see this video as a ''Why'' but more as a ''how''. The video doesn't justify why their hair is different, justifying would be more like showing the genetics behind the different hair roots or something like. The video its only showing that the hair IS different...
Ben Dover
Of course, only African Americans have black hair right...
Rachel Moore
This ain't right the title should be why curly hair is different 😒 don't take a genius to work that out 😂
Nailah
It's all worth it though.. 💖
Spicy Noodle Doodle
When you thought it was about how DNA got into it.
bradleremond
Black hair is amazing in its own right
Mario Catalin Pislariu
Cuz it's black
Kookie lover
My hair has been growing out for 8 years and it's still barely shoulder length...
Jasmijn Ooms
she was reading swing time by zadie smith!! 0:43!!!
Keep kalm and Do challenges
Not every person with black hair has frizzy hair
Keanna Rochon
umm buzzfeed why do you guys always just assume that one race has ALL of the same things...black hair COME ON!! Not every black person has 4c hair i have 3c hair and im pure black please get your facts straight
SterlsTacos
All the butthurt comments though😂
Munkers Awesome
Dear random people of YouTube, I'm wondering why people with curly hair and dark skin are called black, and why people with straight hair and light skin are called white. Also, because I'm half "white" and half "black" does that make me grey? No, no it does not. And because that is true, why is that the go-to thing that people call each other?
Clarice Wang
Thats not true!! Black hair can be straight too just diff colour...i think u guys titled the video wrongly cuz i think u mean black people's black curly hair...I have black hair too and its just like the blond but diff colours^_^
Monica Janny
I really wish this video was planned out more because:
1) The title is confusing
2) The term "black hair" is confusing and not all black people have one type of hair like the woman in the video. A better term would have been "Afro-textured hair"
3) Black people hair CAN be long. Not only straight-haired people have long hair!!! This is a misconnection!

IM BLACK AND THIS IS MY STRUGGLES
OneManShow
Ah! Now I understand! Black people's hair is different because of the cultural rituals and many tools that have been passed down from generation to generation. If Black folk used WYPEPO combs, they would actually have long wavy blonde locks. The more you know... Thanks, BuzzFeed!!!
cynthx
Um. missed the mark. idk what you were trying to achieve with this, but you sucked at it.
Madison Clifford
I have really Curly hair and i'm not black or white 😂
Ana Lee
There is such a spectrum of types of "black" hair. A video displaying the diversity of hair textures and curls would've been much more worthwhile. Honestly this video was really annoying
Felicia Grønholdt
I dont have Black hair but I still take 4 hours at the hairdresser
Uni Aj
this is kind of stereotypical but kinda true
vennipie Lonin
So relatabe
Truly Camillia
this is funny and so true, I have the same kind of hair. I am just trying to manage it without the relaxer. I have been natural for almost two years now and it is definitely a journey.
Shadow Tiger
Was I the only one waiting for the answer?
MzJayBay
this is definitely a "HOW black hair is different"
meme queen
lmao you really think it's that easy to brush white people hair? I realize not all white people have a hard tim. When I was younger I'd wear a hoodie and by the end of the day I'd have the underneath of my hair so tangled it took three hours to comb out a small portion of my hair (after we figured out it was the hood on hoodies doing it, I wasn't allowed to wear hoodies for extensive periods of time). so tell me how easy my "white people " hair is to brush.
Hiro Yasu
this is 'how' not 'why'
DynamicUnreal
This new term of "kinky" hair. When I was growing up it as either straight, curly, or nappy.
Siennia J
Was this just a rhetorical question?
Hiba Rahman
Buzzfeed this isn't the only kind of black hair that exists.. .
PSX PSX
1000% accurate, coming from a black woman who went to private schools 😂
Judith B
can someone tell me why my hair is not "natural hair" when I did nothing with it ever than cutting every now and then?
Rawan Elsir
I'm black and my hair is nothing like this.
