I've been trying not to say anything about the hair type threads.

They're becoming ridiculous now, but some of the blame lies at the feet of NC, it's not all newbies being crazy. The hair type system is confusing enough, but add to that the fact that naturally curly's definition and refrence pictures suck, and ya damn straight people are confused. Heck I'm confused. I've decided I don't want to know anymore, my big question now is about porosity, since I already know I have thick coarse hair.

Like the defination of 4b as having a z-pattern that doesn't interlock and give you curls. Someone here once asked in a thread I started "i thought the z-pattern theory had been disproven" how the heck was I or anyother newbie for that matter, suppose to know that?!! All I had to go on was NC's sucky definition describing a z pattern. If it has been disproven, it should be taken down.

And the fact that the hair boards are arranged by hairtype, so a newbie would feel they needed to know there type to fit in. Another thought I walked away from the thread I just mentioned with was that you guys kept telling me hairtype means nothing and to focus on porosity. Well if that's the case why is there even a 4a board? Why break up the bosrd via curl pattern and then chastise people for wanting to know their's ? I mean if this was your first visit to CT wouldn't you think hair type must be important once you saw the titles of the different boards? just saying

Then there are the people who don't want to make the connection between why their hair is jacked up and what they've done to cause it. Much easier to blame some long dead ancestor than alter behavior or oh my goodness do the leg work and research. Another problem is people who have obviously chemically altered their hair yet expect us to figure out their natural texture.
There was a long time that my hair looked awful because I was not educated to proper hair care. But when I knew better I did better.
Since I made the decision to stay away from the what is my hair type threads I feel so much happier in my NC life.

Just because you haven't relaxed your hair in some odd months or even a year doesn't mean you don't have relaxed hair anymore. If you have not cut off the relaxed ends then you still have hair that is relaxed! Yes both heat AND color can damage the hair and mess your curl pattern up AND it only takes one time for that to happen! To be offended and act like someone is trying to punish you because they answer a question you asked is outright absurd to me. Most of the people who respond to those threads are not initially snarky, but when the OP continues to insist, "Well I am mixed," or "My hair just does that" or my favorite, "You just want my hair to be a certain type!" (I even remember one person saying that most people who claim 3c hair are type 4s and couldn't embrace their situation, while insisting her hair was a true 3c... when 3c wasn't even a part of the original hair typing system... please have a seat) then of course it rubs people the wrong way and you get gig mobbed up and side eyed to death.

We have never in my time being a member of this site had this many "What's my hair type" threads as we do now. I know that it all can be confusing and the section on this site for hair typing might be confusing to some folks, especially at the kinkier end of the spectrum, but please don't get mad when people try to explain that it's not important. Don't keep a thread going for 17 pages acting like you have no idea what people are talking about when you have gotten 50-11 responses from people of all different hair types telling you the same thing.

Anyways, I think that there is something up with all these posts out of no where, especially the ' I-got-a-drop- of-Nava-heaux-up-in-me' people. People are trying to start some static. Someone brought up the possibility that it is winter and chicks in the house looking at their naps... it ain't even that cold out lol! Go take a walk or read a book... stop obsessing over your .03 inches of new growth.

I think im going to bun for a while, its easy to maintain and Ive been getting alot of compliments on it!
Reason # 4,532 on why I could never be Michelle Obama:
Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer Points Finger at President Obama in Face-Off

A letter would have been sent saying:

Dear Wench,

If I ever in my life see a picture of you pointing a finger in my husband's face like that again... I will snatch that wrinkle ass finger off your hand and gauge your eyeballs out with it.

Sincerely,
First Lady
I really want to see "The Vow" and "Safe House"! I know those are two totally different types of movies but they both look really good to me.
Marah, your crazy lady got banned.

I'm sorry your Newt thread got locked. It was a good one.

Also, Jo Somebody, I like your Miyazaki gifs!
