Why do some black men leave combs in their hair?

This is a serious question - when did this start, and why do they do it? Is it meant to be a male equivalent of the things women put in their hair?

It all came from the "AFRO" days! The Afro started in the 60's! Black men would leave their Afro picks in their hair sometimes because they didn't have pockets them sometimes it was a fashion thing! We had different colors and the most famous one was "The Fist" it was a symbol of strength and prestige! Some Black Men just keep the tradition of it so they took it into the 70's and then in the 80's. That's what my uncles told me at least! Some other men said the same thing!

Because they're comical little fools.

It started about twenty years ago with the beginning of the hip hop culture. There's no reason why they do it, it's just apart of the scene, I suppose you could say.

Well, I used to play in a band where our bass player was making a 'fro for himself, and in order to make it stand up rather than droop down the sides, he had to 'pick' it often, which is what the 'comb' is called. He left it in his hair for conveniance, as when he was idling he could just reach up and start 'picking' his hair again.



Hope this helps!

It use to be a style in the 80's they wore Afro Picks in their hair to fix up their fro. And because their hair is so thick it stays. Kinda like how they used to have toothbrushes behind their ears to clean the scuff off their shoes.



whatever floats your goat.
