Or when you realize you're down to your last bottle of Tresemme Naturals and you're thinking it's either a midnight run to Walmart or a panic attack. Yes, this is me right now!!
Lol..
See thats why I stock up like crazy. Oh the horror of running out of your fav product and going to the mall only to find its out of stock!! :P

I think this now qualifies me as OCD...when you are treating your hair curl by curl. This curl needs some protein and that curl does not. This curl needs some moisturizer and that curl does not.

The other day someone mentioned to me they had run out of gel, and all I could think was, "What are you saying? I don't understand - how can you allow yourself to run out of gel . . . or any product for that matter?!"

I also chuckle to myself when someone asks, "How do you get your curls to look like that?"
Oh, if only there were a quick and easy answer to that question.

You know you're OCD about your hair when you glance at the Ctrl on your keyboard and for an instant think it spells Curl.

(Just happened to me !)

When you guiltily change to a different screen on your computer when you're browsing products and someone asks you what you're looking at. Hair porn!

When your friend posts on FB, "Thinking of going natural. Should I or shouldn't I?" And your voice, the white girl, is the loudest one telling her "Yes!!! Do it!!" And you post comments with links to all the curly sites that you know and ask her how she's thinking of transitioning. She thought I was nuts. LOL

You let your curly haired dd color her hair, but BEG her not to let the girl straighten it or give her a relaxer. (She was considering it...but I think I've convinced her to love her curls.)

When a coworker asks you how you get your hair how you do and you tell her we will get lunch one day to discuss it because you can't explain in 2 minutes.

When u receive more than one phone call a day with the question, "ok I just washed my hair, what's the next thing to do?" and "am about to wash my hair, for how long should I pre poo?"

And when u warn your sister not to buy any product!!! Until you check out the ingredients and reviews.

And finally, when your almost 2 year old baby begs you to moisturize his hair

When you are watching a Lord Of The Rings movie and Gandalf appears.... you take one look at him and say (out loud) to your partner........OH MY GOD HIS BEARD WOULD LOOK SO MUCH BETTER IF HE TRIED THE CG METHOD ON IT!

When you prefer to postpone your workout to another day because you already washed your hair the day before and don't want to stress it

When you can't sleep because you don't find the right position that won't mess up your curls

When ur on your break and log into CurlTalk feeling like ur part of an exclusive VIP club

When all u wanna do is talk about curls!

When u get pissed bc ppl like to boing your curls.

When u want to just hug your curls and u imagine what ur hair is gonna look like 2 years from now.

When you hear words like protein and moisture and think of hair properties

When you go to bed in anticipation of trying new methods or products the next day

When you get excited to see an email saying your thread/post just got a reply

When you go on CurlTalk at work when the boss isn't looking


Oh, the list goes on and on
