Pat Your Weave

This morning the McDonald’s drive-thru line was about 20 cars deep. I looked inside to see if the wait was any shorter, and of course it wasn’t. People gotta have their hotcakes in the morning I guess, my son being one of them, well actually he wanted a chicken biscuit sandwich. So I’m sitting behind this grey Camry while inching closer to the speaker to order. All of a sudden this woman starts patting herself on the head.

I’m like WTF?

She kept this going on for about 2 minutes. My son was sitting in the front seat was practically in tears. He wanted to know why this woman was hitting herself on the head. So then of course, I had to explain to him the hair weave pat. I told him that a lot of women who wear hair weaves, can’t really get to the part of their scalp that itches to scratch it like a person that normally would without a weave. So instead of taking a finger to scratch the area, they’re forced to pat it.

“Mommy, she looks like she’s petting a dog”, he says.

I was at a loss for words with that comment. I swear this woman in the grey Camry, patted her head the whole time we were in the drive-thru line. I would hope that after she left McDonald’s she would head to her beautician to get her weave re-done.

    lol…@Sabrina, my mind went right to “Get Me Bodied” when I saw the twins and read the post. I don’t wear weave, but friends and fam do, and they about damn near give themselves concussions trying to scratch the itch with the palm of their hands. GEESH!

      As much as I hate to admit it, I also have had to do the infamous Hair weave pat but after complaining to my stylist, she recommended a product called Allay weave solution by Hair Candy and I’ve been using it every since. It has a special applicator that allows it to get through the weave and down to my scalp. Tried other products that mists the hair with a spray, they worked eventually but Allay worked better. I barely even think about it anymore and have not had to pat my head since I started using Allay. I can still wear my weaves but I am no longer that chick everyone is looking at patting the hell out of their head cause the itching is sooooo bad.
