Gee, thanks...

This same girl, just last week, said "Your curls are so pretty," and then started giving all this advice, like "You know what? You should get a defining product. Some need to be applied when soaking wet, others when damp..." as if I didn't know. Yeah, she knows a lot about cosmetics, but considering I'm a bit of a product junkie, I'd think I would know what I'm talking about. Especially considering my hair is curly, and hers is not.

I don't know about you, but it just annoys me when people with straight hair start spouting advice as if they know my hair better than I do, and like I don't know anything at all. Do they know my porosity? Whether I'm a 3a or 3b? Yeah, that's what I thought.

I'd say, "Straight haired people giving hair advice to curly people is like a man giving a woman tampon advice". There's obvious good intentions there, but no field experience.
