PSA : Men must pay when they sweat the perm out

Ladies, we have all been there... when we just got our hair done, looking fresh to def because we have somewhere to be the next day, and we get home and here he go poking us in our back, talkin' bout... c'mon babe... just let me put the head in. We all know he ain't just trying to put the head in, he wants to get down with the get down and doesn't care in the least bit that you just paid all this money to get your hair done.

Now I am not a big fan of The Dream, but his new album is a banger and he is extremely on point with this joint. Take a listen!

LMAO @ this song. I have had this mess on repeat since I heard the album. Why the beautician name had to be Latisha. The first time I heard it I was like this sound just like some ish R. Kelly would write. Either way... he had the nerve to tell the chick that she should have got braids if he didn't want her to sweat her hair out. Either way, he gives her the money to get her hair done the next day and even warns her to make her appointment before they even get down with the get down.

So this is a MOFO public service announcement : The Dream has made it official that every man needs to MAN UP and leave the money on the night stand the next morning to get our hair done. You sweat it out, you pay for it. We are always telling you, no not the hair, and trying to get in positions so that the hair isn't compromised, but nooooooo the wet wet be getting good to ya'll and ya'll get all wild life like and the beast comes out. Next morning we wake up looking a hot mess. So men, if you want to stick it, you got to fix it. The hair that is!

Hey its Tima and all I have to say is AMEN to this post! O and I just love The Dream!!! Keep writin girl love your blog

Bella March 10, 2009 at 10:58 PM

you break, you buy!! lol

my hair is naturally curly and its long as hell so it takes me a GOOD amount of time to blow it out, straighten it, give it one last once-over with the flat iron and i'll be damned if my man dont find my hair sexiest when it's straight! so he gets extra DTF when its straight and he has no shame either! just be like "u know i'm gonna fuck ur hair up later." wha...??

LMAO!!! Most's only fair!

Nola.Divine March 10, 2009 at 11:21 PM

PREACH Eb! $45 for a wash and please.

[Emeritus] March 10, 2009 at 11:45 PM

"and ya'll get all wild life like"

that part had me rolling.

Beautifully.Conjured.Up March 10, 2009 at 11:54 PM


I totally agree with this post. Being natural, it's rough because you can't hide or play it off because you go from silky straight to culy/kinky/nappy within a few hours (if it lasts that long...hopefully).


Kryssy March 11, 2009 at 12:01 AM

...and blogs like these are what make me like you so dang much. lol

I either weave it up and down...OR.. if I do rock my natural... it's so curly that aint no sweat or after-sex wash in the world gonna un-curl it.

So, I'm on board for some hardcore action.

(oh my... that looks so terribly slutty in print) LMAO

Ma'at March 11, 2009 at 12:20 AM

See, stuff like this makes me so happy to be natural. The worst "that man" can do is my my coils and curls go frizzy and water and a lil product will fix that. But I feel ya , you ruin it, you fix it.

Anonymous March 11, 2009 at 12:49 AM

dang..... now I remember why I follow your blog....hahaha

your sweet girl!!

Gorgeous Geek March 11, 2009 at 6:28 AM

lmao... Amen Amen

I have twist now yay me... I don't have to worry about looking a mess the next day for a while lol

Anonymous March 11, 2009 at 8:48 AM

I was reading your Tweets about this yesterday and I co-sign 100%! I will not feel any type of way if I wake up after a good romp to $40 on my dresser to get the 'do re-done. How am I supposed to get my day to day RBW on if this dude has me lookin like Buckwheat?

In the words of Riley Freeman, "You gon' pay me what you owe!" Hahaha

RiPPa March 11, 2009 at 9:16 AM

How about the sisters start going to ole gurl Keisha who do hair, sell dope and babysit out the same house.

I guarantee you if more women did that, they wouldn't be so worried about gettin that perm sweated out.

They ought to be glad they got a man that can work it like that instead of bitchin (LOL). Now as for that nigga Dream? He fuckin it up for the rest of the cats out there. Ol' sorry ass trickin nigga prolly ain't even got a woman.

Hell yeah!

Saule Wright March 11, 2009 at 10:01 AM

I hope I can't be sent to collections for previous years.

The Jaded NYer March 11, 2009 at 10:38 AM

exactly why I'm strategic with my salon visits... no activities after I've been in that damn salon for 7 hours getting my hair done!

I only made the exception once and man you've never seen someone be so careful and slo-mo with their ish like me!! I had my sister's college graduation the next day and Mami had already warned me not to show up looking like a ragamuffin... you'll be happy to know I was able to get mines and the hair was still intact and I didn't ruin the photos! lol

redvelvet March 11, 2009 at 10:59 AM

it's been so damn long since my hair's been sweated out....
I agree with you cause I've definitely been there, used to wear my hair curly a lot, after one unremarkable sex session with this dude, the back of my hair was flat, my mother was like what you been doing that your hair is messed up,

Keith March 11, 2009 at 11:06 AM

LMAO.......You are hillarious.....

Did you uh, end your sabattical???

Just asking...I suspect, some lucky man is $45.00- $60.00 light
today and some hairdresser in Harlem is smiling, right??

Or was you just sayin?

Super Dave Van Buren March 11, 2009 at 11:34 AM

What?? I've never paid to get some chick's hair done. The fact that we did sweat it out is the reason you like us. If we couldn't you would kick us to the curb.

MP March 11, 2009 at 11:58 AM

lmao! thank you for putting me on! this song is too funny and it doesn't sound like some R Kelly ish!

IntrospectiveGoddess March 11, 2009 at 12:20 PM

LMAO@Let me put the head in,

I feel so deprived, like honestly I have never had sex to the point where I'm sweating and tired and shit....

I wear my hair natural so it wouldnt be nothing for me....

But I feel you, the hair is important if you fuck it up then leave me the money to get it back right!

Eb the Celeb March 11, 2009 at 2:26 PM

@rippa - lol...dont come over here hating

@saule - no backpay...its the new thing for 2009 so get with it

@keith - nope... I am still going strong minus dick. I was just saying... the song brought all this up... I'm not getting any action.

@Super Dave - Dont act like you've never been with a chick that was strategious with how ya'll got down and requested you not touch her hair... but nooooooo ya'll dont know how to follow directions and it get good to you and we look like a fool.

@Intro - You've never got it so good that your hair was flat after? We gonna have to work on you experiencing that one missy.

Ms. Bar B: March 11, 2009 at 2:27 PM

"if you want to stick it, you got to fix it"

You are a DAMN fool, lol. But, you ain't neva lied. It never fails. Luckily for me, I can proudly say that I have graduated from the "hot mess" club thanks to the new natural me. Now he can smack that, flip it, and rub it down, and I'm gonna be just as beautiful in the morning as I was the night before, hahaha.

1/3 March 11, 2009 at 2:36 PM

LMAO you are so crazy! But i agree with the post. guys dont understand the pain and anguish we go through just to get our hair looking just right so they mess it up they need to pay for it lol

MzInspiredMind81 March 11, 2009 at 6:24 PM

You ain't NEVER lied! I mean my goodness...we spend all day in the shop and then the fool goes messing it up(but its soooooooo worth it..LMAO). I try to take all the proper precautions and wrap my hair up 2x to keep from him messing it up! LOL

Mr.Socialight March 11, 2009 at 7:28 PM

K. March 11, 2009 at 10:02 PM

Soulstress March 12, 2009 at 12:26 AM

mzvirgo April 1, 2009 at 8:58 PM

Well, mine is a sew in weave, so I don't mind it being sweated out, just as long as he doesn't pull on the weave. Then we'd have problems.
