Hmmm...rain has no effect on my hair in it's natural state. It only gets poofy if it's straightened, if not it's all good.

Which is necessary since I live in Portland...the land of rain.

When it's one o'clock in the morning and you're sending your friend who lives halfway across the world an email with picture attachments of your hair shorter from years ago and demanding, "Should I chop it off?"

Oh dear, wait. Was that me? No wonder I'm tired today.

When...at least 2 or 3 of your (straight haired and completely uninterested) family members/friends know what co-wash and low poo mean.

When ...you're so used to scanning ingredients lists for conditioners that one day you momentarily forget it's a pasta readymeal and think 'pureed tomato?! I'm not sure I want that in my hair!'

When...you can visit two or three local pharmacies to pick up a bottle of suitable conditioner and come back empty handed.

When...you're trying to find something relaxing to think about to help you get off to sleep....Hmm, ok, what conditioner/styler combo could I use tomorrow?

When...you're sharing a hair breakthrough, and someone's eyes are glazing over.

When...you re-read curly hair books again and again just for fun. In fact lets face it, when...you own curly hair books.

When you are buying tops based on whether they button - so that you don't have to pull them on over your head and mess up your curls.

when you are standing in a grocery store, next to a curly girl with poofy hair and you see her reaching for a shampoo that both has sulphates and silicones (which you know because obviously you have checked the ingredientlist of every single hairproduct in the store) and you want to tell her she should try that other one next to it, because her hair will get so much healthier...

Love this thread!

When you come across a message board thread about Keratin treatments posted by people you don't know and you have to physically restrain yourself from posting a reply about curly girl method.

When your husband and your daughter refer to you as "Mother Gothel" from the movie Tangled.

When your family is going on vacation to the beach and you panic "what conditioners are you taking?!?!?!?!???!???" Then start picking out ones "you'll need this aloe one for the salt water, take this DC ......"

When you see an avocado and the first thing you think is "I want to put that in my hair."
