WACO, Texas (CBS HOUSTON) — One Texas pastor is telling women not to bring their weaves to church.

Pastor A.J. Aamir of Resurrecting Faith in Waco believes in natural beauty and is asking the women of his congregation to not wear weaves.

“Women wearing weaves presents a false image of themselves and are associated with women who have low self-esteem,” Aamir told America Preachers.

As a child being raised in the Islamic faith, Aamir was raised in a strict household where not much was tolerated.

His church is made up of a congregation of members that are dealing with financial hardships, but he notices they will go out and buy $300 weaves.

“I lead a church where our members are struggling financially. I mean really struggling,” Aamir told America Preachers. “Yet, a 26-year-old mother in my church has a $300 weave on her head. No, I will not be quiet about this.”

Although the pastor is allowed to state his opinion, he cannot legally make the women of his congregation stop wearing weaves. However, he will never approve of them.

Weaves — which come in different lengths, colors and textures — are used to enhance and add hair to the scalp of a woman’s head.
