Thieves are now attacking women with long hair in Venezuela..lol

Na Naija weave sellers dey send them? Lol. #kidding o. According to this funny and weird report, having long hair can make you a target for criminals in the Venezuelan coastal city of Maracaibo.

These criminals are targeting young women who have long hair with scissors, and before you know what's happening, your hair is gone.

A Maracaibo resident Egmari Villarreal (pictured above left) explains:
"You have to see it to believe it. We're not going to be able to have long hair anymore. As a woman, this is something traumatic. It's happening downtown, at the beach or at the mall, where you find a lot of young women. The thieves grab them by the hair, pull out some scissors and cut their hair. Then they sell it at beauty or hair salons."
Another resident Mariana Rodriguez told Globovision that she was walking through a popular mall when she saw two women coming toward her.
"I thought they were going to steal my cell phone, because I had it in my hand at the time, but they took out scissors," she said. "They did not give me a chance to think or to run or anything. And when I looked, I no longer had any hair. More than 8 inches gone.
Maracaibo Mayor Eveling de Rosales told reporters that police were stepping up security to stop the attackers.
"As part of our operation of citizen security, we are giving them a forceful response, posting men and women to keep watch and stop this from continuing to happen," she said.
Synthetic hair in the country costs anywhere from $40 to $160, depending on its quality. But natural hair can cost more than $500.

    Now please tell me if using another womans hair that was gotten this way doesn't have a spiritual implication? Would the spirit of that woman be happy. Those indians dedicating hair to their gods and this kind of situation are the same. Its hard to trace any human hair u buy but my stand is if it cannot be traced then don't do it. Even people that do kidney, heart etc transplant. They no the donor and the patient. Apart from that, there has been cases of transplant patients who see visions of the donor especially "a dead donor". They see and remember things that they have no knowledge about. Its rare though but its happening. Such people must have a very high spiritual awareness. I don't understand how u can feel Comfortable using a human being haiir on ur head. A hair that grew from inside someones head? Peoples emotions affect their hair growth sometimes, some women when they are pregnant they loose all their hair, everything in a human being is connected. I wouldn't want to use a murderers hair on my head. Maybe because am deeply spiritual and I no too much. We need to be careful! Ori yato sori. Some die hard human hair girls will abuse me. "Right back at cha"

    Instead of robbing their corrupt leaders or coming together to fight against the cartels in their country,they are attacking women of their hairs.
    But hey,you do realize that if natural hair isn't in high demand in most African countries,there won't be an ugly incident as this yeah?Won't be long before the trend starts out there in Nig too.

    Black people,even u Linda, what is wrong with the hair God has given u? Have u ever asked yourself this question sincerely? Whites come up everyday with products working for their skin and hair ,while blacks lazily sew another person's hair instead of carrying out their own research.

    Now don't start aying whites tan to get black skin or have breast and butt implants to look like african women. Yes, they do, but how many of thhem do that?

    BUT THE AMOUNT OF BLACK WOMEN WEARING WEAVES IS DISPROPORTIONATE!!!! IT'S EVEN FRIGHTENING COS IT IS SO ABNORMAL. AND BLACK GIRLS WEAR THEM AT A VERY YOUNG AGE NOW. SECONDARY SCHOOL GALS FOR THAT MATTER!

    Please have the patience to educate yourselves and do your research on how to care for your God-given crown. But of course, you won't; you'd rather go for quick and easy options which do not and will never work for u cos they were created for other races, not you.

    And people will come here to rant and complain of racism when a Survey will be conducted and it it will be revealed that the black race is the least attractive race among all the races in the world.
    How do u want others to love u when u spend all ur efforts being what you are not? LOVE YOURSELVES, LOVE YOUR SKIN, LOVE YOUR HAIR!!!

    I laugh when Black women take pride in calling themselves AFRICAN QUEENS.

    But my question is this:

    WHAT KIND OF QUEEN WEARS ANOTHER WOMAN'S CROWN ON HER HEAD?

    Have you ever seen Queen Elizabeth wearing another queen's crown ?

    Bear in mind that the Bible says a woman's hair is her crown.

    Food for thought...

     
  • At 9 August 2013 at 09:34 , Anonymous Anonymous said...

    Wearing someone's hair also has spiritual implications:
    What if the hair was cut from a mad woman's head??? Did u ever think of that?

    WHEN U WEAR SOMEONE'S HAIR, U ALSO WEAR THAT PERSON'S SPIRIT.

    Maybe you've never seen someone being delivered right in front of your eyes.

    Girls/Women should please mind the source of these hairs.It's important.

    EVERY HAIR IS GOOD HAIR.BAD HAIR IS UNHEALTHY HAIR.

    Indian and Latin hair is highly prized because it has a good hair grade. Why? Because Latins and Indians take pride and a lot of time to care for their hair.
    They use a lot of coconut oïl, aloe vera juice, olive oïl,neem oïl, jojoba and cupuasoo oïl ( sort of amazonian shea butter.)All natural products we can have here. They know their men are crazy about long hair, so they spend enormous amount of time on hair care, hence the result u all lazy girls envy.

    I am yet to see hair crimminals moving with scissors looking for an african woman's hair to cut.

    See how we african women impoverish ourselves to make these venezuelan, korean and malaysian traders rich. Because we are too lazy, impatient or ignorant to carry out research on what works for our hair.

    And i am yet to see an Indian or venezuelan woman spending ridiculous amounts of money to buy african hair. What a world!
