I've been using the products and techniques I've learned about from nc.com for 6+ months, and my hair has changed dramatically. It's soft, much less frizzy, curlier, and I've got shiny hair for the first time ever
! (BTW, I'm pretty-gosh-darned-modified CG, which is to say that I do wash with Elucence MBS nearly every day.)
Anyhoo, I started a new job 3 months ago in a much larger government agency than the one in which I had previously worked. As a result, I went from working in a small building with 4 floors to a block-long one with 24 floors, one result of which is that I come into contact with far more people M-F than I did before. With the increase in people coming into contact with me, I've enjoyed an increase in compliments about my hair (I always credit nc.com, of course!).
Compliments are certainly nice, although the urge to TOUCH my hair seems to overwhelm some women, as is the case with other curlies judging from the posts I've read here.
A "compliment" I received 2 days ago crossed the line though, IMHO. As I was leaving work, I stepped into a crowded elevator. Within what felt like mere seconds, the woman next to me exclaimed that she "loved" my hair, declared that she "had" to touch it, then proceeded to take one small lock of it and give it a brief yet forceful tug.
Um, #1, if you're interested in touching my hair, asking the person from whose head it's growing is a good first step. #2, while I may have conceded to your gently
touching my hair if you'd asked
, I guarantee you I wouldn't have agreed to you pulling
it! And #3, OUCH
Don't hate me 'cause I'm (well my hair, anyway, is) beautiful!
