I got an email today with a picture of this:
It’s Naomi Campbell at a fashion photo shoot. Her wardrobe stylist was futzing with her outfit, and when she slung her “hair” back it revealed a huge bald spot. This isn’t the first image of Naomi with balding edges. She’s had them for several years. When I googled something pertaining to her hairline, I was met with a barrage of nasty blog posts about her disappearing hairline.
I know this woman has whooped many of ask with cellphones, her fists, and PDAs. However, she did her time for those ass-whippins and she deserves more respect than this. I know she has made some enemies along the way, however Naomi is 40 years old and has been in the Fashion industry since she was about 16 years old. Most of can’t say we’ve been doing anything for that long. She has worn many of weaves, wigs, braids, etc. to present the image that society wants her to present. Presenting that image on a continuous basis means she has had to sacrifice her hairline. It’s a common thing that happens to women of African descent. She has probably not taken the time to let her hair line rest from the constant pulling, tugging, gelling, pressing, relaxing, etc. that has been expected of her over the past 24 years or so.
I too have lost my hair twice. Once with baby number one and just recently with baby number three.
I used Jamaican Black Castor Oil on this last bout, and my hair returned within weeks, however the experience was embarrassing for me and it hurt. Because you know I am vain!
Anyway, I am posting this in support of Naomi Campbell. She has been the ideal image that the fashion, music, and beauty industry asked her to be, while having to sacrifice her true natural beauty.
Please don’t try to embarrass her now that she has been who you’ve wanted her to be.
