    I have never understood why we even care about what Andre Walker has to say...I never have...So what? He does Oprah's hair...WHATEV...If she actually wore her hair in its natural state, then maybe he'd be able to say something to me...but NO. Last I checked AW doesn't have some kinky hair so....BYE

    What a jacka$$. If anything, kinky hair is the most versatile. It can be straightened, afro'd, curled, holds braids and twists better than any other texture, I mean seriously. How is permed hair giving you more styling options? How is straight hair more versatile than kinky hair? :dontknow: I can't

    And he wants to talk versatility when all Oprah's permed hair, or any chemically straightened hair for the matter, does is sit on top of her head giving NO LIFE whatsoever. How is her hair more versatile? She wears it the same way all the time.

    He's stupid and his products are garbage. I don't even need to try them to say that. I just look at the ingredients. Nothing but cones. What's healthy about slathering your hair in plastic?

    If its not everyday I see people with straight hair trying to achieve curls twists and braids with hold. I remembered when I first heard about Kinky Curly products via youtube, almost every comment was "Does this work on relaxed/permed hair?"

    Andre Walker hasn't changed. Why folks act surprised? Has anyone ever heard of or seen evidence that Andre Walker styles natural, kinky/coily hair? I haven't. He relaxes kinky hair, for a living.

    He's like a million other stylists, who believe that naturally kinky/coily hair creates style limitations, and that's fine. I bet he couldn't even style my hair, in its natural state.

    I've read some other strange comments from him in the past so I don't pay too much attention to what he has to say about styling and caring for natural hair.
  • subbrocksubbrock Posts: 8,212Registered Users
    i just saw this over on bglh. so naturally i went to his website to poke around. there is a q&a section and some of the answers he gave to people made me raise an eyebrow. he actually tells a woman who has a question about why the nape area of her hair won't grow that it sounds like it could be breakage and she should relax her hair more. relax breaking hair more? wheretheydothatat???

    I can't even get too upset over that ignorant comment because I prove his ass wrong every single day. I don't "need" a relaxer. My hair is the most versatile of all. I can twist it, braid it, do twist/braid outs, updos, tuck and rolls or even straighten it if I wanted to. Straight hair doesn't give me half those options. He's hardly the only black stylist with that opinion either. [EMAIL="F@ck"]F@ck[/EMAIL] him.

    WTF?? Too funny. I never thought too much of Andre or his hair typing. I always equated his book deal to being Oprah's stylist not that he was a hair "expert."

    He doesn't know what he is talking about! He is just Oprah's kept stylist. It's not that he said what he said--because who gives a crap about that--but it's that he said it in ELLE!!! We build and build, and all it takes is one clown to attempt to knock it all down!

    Anyway, it's obvious he doesn't know what he is talking about!! There are so many different styling options, one just needs to go to youtube. Let's not blow this out of proportion. He ain't nobody, ha!

    I actually used Kinky Curly on my relaxed hair and LOVED it, it was the first time I used it and it was the only gel that I had ever used that I could scrunch out my hair didn't look stringy, dry, or crunchy. However, I'm not an idiot and wasn't expecting my hair to curl up like crazy, it was just wavy.

    As for Andre...well, yea. Him and Dickey have said some questionable things about kinky hair. So have Tito and Michi (yes I know those aren't their actual names). So have some articles on Naturally Curly.

    Yep, this.


    He stopped doing his homework a long time ago.. and I guess he thinks he knows everything just because he's Oprah's stylist. Well guess what Andre, we got news for you and all the other stylists that think like you. There's a new stylist in town called "me myself and I" and we really don't need you anymore.

    :lol: My sentiment exactly re: 'torturer.':happy4:

    I know there are cool stylists out there somewhere but I've never had the good fortune of finding one.

    Andre is just too old-school and corny for my tastes. i can't take him seriously at all.
