Thanks to the Internet and its influx of images and anonymity of comment sections, people (well, far too many people) have started to think it's appropriate to offer unsolicited comments on how individuals look. Women, especially and unfortunately, take the brunt of these random (and often rude) opinions, because this is America and endlessly discussing how women look just seems to be our thing.
For far too long, too many people have felt it necessary to provide unwanted, unnecessary, and unprovoked observations on women's size, shapes, skin color, wardrobe, and even hair. Whether it's body hair or facial hair or the hair on top of a woman's head, certain members of society seem to have the idea that it's perfectly acceptable to tell a woman what she should do with the hair she has: Shave...or wait, no, don't shave; Wear a weave or a wig, but never talk about it and never, ever admit to it; Grow your hair out or cut your hair short or dye your hair, but don't dye it a particular color; Remember to always choose an "appropriate" hairstyle that sets you apart but doesn't bring you too much attention because that's just shallow. The list of standards and contradicting demands goes on and on and on.
It's time we — individuals of every gender — work together to combat and reverse the idea that a woman's appearance (including her hair) is something to be constantly judged and scrutinized and discussed and dissected. To get us started, here are 14 things you should never say about a woman's hair, because enough it enough. After all, it's her hair, not yours.
