I got a couple over Thanksgiving weekend as well. We went to my in-laws, and my husband's aunt, who is a former cosmetologist, complimented my curls as soon as she greeted me (which was nice because I thought I'd been having a bad hair day!)
Then, I was complimenting my sister-in-law's straight hair because it's so sleek and shiny, telling her how I had told my husband that it's hair like hers that makes me want to straighten (once in a while) and she said it's hair like mine that makes her want to get a perm.
