A pastor wants women to stop wearing weaves in church.
Pastor A.J. Aamir of Resurrecting Faith in Waco, Texas feels women spend a lot of money on weaves yet they need to be true to themselves. “Our Black women are getting weaves trying to be something and someone they are not. Be real with yourself is all I’m saying,” Aamir said. “Long hair don’t care. What kind of mess is that? I don’t want my members so focused on what’s on their heads and not IN their heads. I lead a church where our members are struggling financially. I mean really struggling. Yet, a 26-year-old mother in my church has a $300 weave on her head. NO. I will not be quiet about this.”
