Default What is the one thing that people say about your hair that drives you crazy?

Whenever I grow my hair out people always ask if it's a perm.. Drives me crazy..

I can only wish. Just remember people ask that hoping there is a way for them to get hair that looks like yours!

"Why don't you straighten your hair?"

"You would look so nice with straight hair!"


I don't like when people said things like that.

"is your hair real?"

"is your hair natural or do you curl it?"

"how do you get your hair so crispy like that? I wany my hair to be crispy." (talking about when gel makes it hard)

Are you planning to loc again? It is a valid question as I was a loc GODDESS!!

But why does that **** matter? I'm loose. I like it.

Some think I should. (Guys thought it was cool.

Some think I should keep the curls. (Girls like my hair.. But call it "Good" hair. They mean it as a complement, but I'm like, WHAT?)


Personally their opinions are invalid.

When a straightie says "oh! your curly hair! must be so nice to just roll out of bed and go!"

"Well... actually, I get out of the shower, flip my head over, drip water all over the f'ing bathroom because if i don't put my products in and finger comb and scrunch at just the precise moment between soaking-wet and damp, I will end up with stringy tupperhair. Then i balance my head on the toilet while i wrap it in a cloth diaper because terry cloth towels pull the hairs up like medusa, and then I stand bent over under a diffuser for 30 minutes and then as soon as I walk outside in the wind or high humidity, I just wasted an hour. So THAT is why my hair is in a high up messy bun 95% of the time. Shove it, straighties. I just don't care to do it lately."

That it must suck having curly hair. Well, I actually believed it when I was younger but watching other male friends lose their hair in their early 30s made me appreciate having curly locks.

I know they mean it as a complement, but it still hits the brain wrong. LoL!

Especially when they add, see you can be natural. You got that good hair. Like everyone with hair not like mine can't and should NOT go natural. Even if that person is THEM.

It's just sad.

The whole good hair/bad hair idea needs to just curl up and die somewhere. Then all curlies will be treated as equals.

"Is that all yours?"
"You must go through a ton of shampoo."


Yes and actually I barely touch the stuff.

Lol yes the sentiment that I am able to just jump out of the shower/roll out of bed and have presentable hair is most irksome. I mean, this is usually after I tell them that no, I don't use a curling iron to get this... but it's not like I don't do ANY sort of styling.

"You seriously don't use shampoo?"

Man, that makes me SO mad! There's no use explaining it to them...
They look at me like I'm such a dirty freak, when just a minute ago they were gushing over it.

Haven't gotten many comments that have bugged me yet, but one that stands out in my mind is from my jealous sister who has straight hair. She tells me that my hair is only curly because my mom got me a perm when I was a kid..... yeah sure... there's no way I have cut my hair in the last two decades......

I hate when people go what product do I have to buy to get my hair curly like yours? I'm like....I don't think a product exists like that considering I was born with this, but if you want to know how I define curls I already have then we can talk

This has not been said to me in a while but sometimes I read rude, ignorant comments about women with curls on the net and they say that they need to brush their hair! Oh that will do a lot of good!
