How do you feel about people wearing their bonnets and durags outside of the house? My friend does it all the time and I just want them to stop. How should I tell them?
Hey everyone! It’s your favorite girl with the best advice in the world.
Let me just start by saying that I personally don’t feel that you should ever be outside the house with a durag or bonnet on. I just think that you never know who you’re going to meet. I mean, what if you meet the love of your life but you got a bonnet on?
However, I understand everyone is not like me. I feel like a quick run to Walmart is socially acceptable. Also, if you’re going on a trip and you don’t need to have your hair slaying or your waves surfing just yet, then maybe you can keep it on for the car ride. But just wearing it out in public? I don’t know about that one.
I think you should encourage your friends to wear it when you guys are at home or just before you are about to go out. Just give them a gentle reminder to take it off when you’re leaving. If that doesn't work, just tell them you are not going out in public with them until they take it off. They might pitch a little fit, but they’ll take it off.
