Not get a lot of hair compliments?

I rarely get hair compliments which feeds into the "does my hair look okay" factor everyday. Hubby is my number one curly hair supporter, so he gets that question almost daily. I try to remember that I will often admire someone's hair - friend or stranger - and neglect to compliment them. So, I'm hoping/praying/assuming that that's how it works in reverse .

Product Junkie that keeps falling off the wagon!
I got compliments when my hair was growing out of being "short", just below shoulder length. Since it's been BSL I haven't really gotten any compliments...I love it, though. It looks way better like this IMO.
2c/3a/3b curls, waist length

I've noticed it comes and goes in spurts. I'll go a long while with nothing, and then out of the blue I get compliments from everyone, even though I did nothing different.
I've gotten compliments from people who know me and what I looked like before, asking or trying to guess lol, what I've done differently. But nothing from strangers. That's ok, though. I look great compared to my dry straw from before.
CGing since 9/07, wavy 2 with some 3a and 3a tendencies (I think). Really I've always thought I was just wavy in the wrong places and unmanagable, so being curly is new to me.
