White Woman Claims She Invented The Hair Bonnet, Sells It For $98
NiteCap founder Sarah Marantz Lindenberg, who is a Caucasian woman, claims she invented the hair bonnet, and we object.
The history of Black hair provides ample evidence proving that Black women have been wearing the hair accessory for centuries and that Lindenberg’s “invention” isn’t new.
According to Complex
In an interview with Fashion Magazine, Marantz Lindenberg says she came up with the idea for the silk head wrap while preparing for her wedding. “I was preparing for my wedding and like a lot of brides, wanted everything to be perfect. My skin was breaking out, and I have quite long hair,” she recalls. “A dermatologist recommended that I sleep with my hair pulled back. Another physician recommended I try silk scarves and I had fun playing around with them, but they didn’t stay on.”
The most amazing thing about this cultural appropriation the new bonnet is overpriced when the actual Bonnett only cost 10 dollars. Give this woman a heee haaaa.
