Best Curl Compliments

A while ago, someone posted a message asking about the insults that us curlies have gotten over the years (I certainly have had a few in my life).

This got me thinking: What about the best compliments that people got about their curly hair?

I remember when I was little, the janitor at my school used to call me Goldilocks because of my blonde curly hair (I know that's not necessarily a compliment, it's more of a nickname, but he never ever ever gave anyone else a nickname). Whenever he called me that, I felt really special and unique.

So, what I would like to know is what is the best compliment that you have had about your hair?
3a/b hair...?


Yeah, I hate Bee's, OK?

oh and when a stranger stops you and tells you "you have great hair"

oh and when people ask if its natural (i take that as a compliment because it must mean my hair looks so good it must be fake!)

I think you could walk around with words and stick people drawn on your face and still look supercute.

A couple of weeks ago, a technician at the hospital told me I "looked like a Renaissance painting". It made my whole month!!!
2a/b. I love AOHR!
One of my closest friends told me "I love your hair, did you get a perm? No?! Never straighten it again!!!"

Ever since then, whenever I get a compliment, I get this horrible smirk, and when they ask me why I've got a weird face on I say it's cause I'm thinking "what, this mess?!"

Thus far, the best compliments are when someone asks if I've gotten a perm or they tell me not to straighten again.

I am still waiting for the best compliment though: when a stranger (who never saw me as a straightie) says something nice about my hair. Still waiting . . .

No silicones/no sulfates since March 2008
Today I was in the salon for my monthly color and trim. Another stylist (not mine) walked by the chair, paused and asked "is that natural curl?". I said "yes". She responded "it's just perfect". And this was before it was colored and styled. I'll tell you, it made my day!
Couple of inches past shoulder length 3A. Shampoo every 3rd or 4th day w/ baby shampoo; Tigi Fashionista conditioner; back to Condition 3-in-1 mousse . Alternate days water rinse, conditioner and mousse.
Oh boy. I've gotten a lot of compliments. It makes me feel so good.

I get asked "is that natural?" all the time. I love their faces when I say, "yes sir/ma'am, it is!"

I think the best one (from a complete stranger) was "WOW! YOUR HAIR IS AMAZING!!!!"

I often get "your hair is really cool", "your hair is really pretty" or "your hair is beautiful". Along with "your eyes are gorgeous". I love it when I get a two-in-one like that! It's awesome. haha.
Today I was in Sephora, buying lip gloss (not hair product!) and a salesperson walked by me, did a double-take and said, "What cute hair!"

I think I giggled.

What a refreshing change of thread -- we all send too much time lamenting! It IS nice to get compliments, especially when you know you are having a good hair day. I get the usual comments of people envying the curls (grass is always greener types). Lots of people want to touch it.

My tie for best compliment:
1. When I was in my early twenties (curls past my waist) I used to go to a salon for trims. But I always insisted on doing the styling myself (for obvious reasons). One day the salon owner asked if he could have the stylists watch while I did the whole product application/scrunch/diffuse etc. ALl the while he raved about my hair

2. Also in my 20's, working in NYC, there was a guy who I saw every morning in the elevator. He always looked but never made more than small talk. SOmehow he found out what company I worked for and called the main board looking for me. He didn't know my name, so he asked for "the girl who looks like Gd himself gave her a perm"

Oh Wait!! The BEST of all -- when my now 12 year old son was 2, and I blew my hair straight for a wedding and he cried and cried begging "mommy, let yer curlies out!!"

My best compliment was actually shortly before I realized I was curly and went CG cold turkey..

I always blowfried and combed, thinking my hair was just supposed to be kind of frizzy.

One Sunday morning (I hadn't had time to boil all the water out of my hair so it was frizzing a little yet doing its own thing) this cute little old lady sitting behind me in church told me, "Your hair looks like spun gold!"

When I got home and looked in the mirror, I didn't particularly like what I saw, but it was probably the beginning of what eventually inspired me to figure out this thing we call naturally curly hair.

I wish I knew who she was so I could thank her.

The best compliments, for me, come from strangers. I just feel like they must be sincere because someone that doesn't know you doesn't need to say anything to you let alone compliment your hair.

I also like it when my little girls comment about my hair. Their hair is curly too and I'm hoping they have more of a positive attitude towards the curls than I did when I was growing up.
3B: very thick, fine, easily weighed down by products

Current styling products:
Biolage Gelee or BRHG on top of
KCKT as a leave in or CK when humid
or just Joiwhip alone for moderate weather conditions
I was at Disneyland on the Splash Mountain ride and there was a couple sitting behind me. The lady said, "I'm a hairstylist and I just want to tell you that is the most beautiful perm I've ever seen!" She was pretty surprised to find out that it was natural.

The ladies at my hair salon and nail place rave about how they wish that they had my curls.

My favorite one recently was a chick telling me she wished her hair looked like mine. She went on to say that her hair was naturally curly but that she straightened it. So I told her about nc.com!

once a woman came up to me and asked if my hair was natural. she then asked me to come into the salon down the road with her because she wanted to get her hair permed and she wanted it exactly like mine
Not to Guano but....Now that we've all got a neck sprain from patting ourselves on the back How about this variation on the theme....

I have had days when people have complimented/raved/drooled over my hair when I KNEW I was having a VERY BAD hair day (poof/frizz/whatEVER). All I could feel was downright embarrasment at them thinking THAT was my hair (well, it is, but you get the product-laden drift) and usually I make some kind of self-depreciating remark that reeks of self-conciousness.

Am I alone in this?

I didn't think it was a compliment at the time, but I'd have to agree that the best ones are the PERM comments. Now that I've realized they just meant my hair looked uniformly curly and nice, not frizzed and burnt!

Yesterday I ran into a friend at Wal Mart (hey.. I wanted a spare can of mousse... sue me!) and she's an amazing 3b curly who straightens about half the time. She looks at me and says... "did you PERM your hair?" I said.."Nope, I just quit straightening it about 6 weeks ago." She replied, "I had no idea it was THAT curly!! It looks so great!"

My inner child turned backflips... I love it!!


(Secretly I'm hoping to turn her into a FORMER straightener... lol She is my CURL IDOL!)

I love it when complete strangers compliment my hair. There have been a couple of strangers who I thought would never shut up about my curls though... lol. They went on and on, but it did make my curl ego feel good

My 3 year old daughter, when she was smaller, used to cry and refuse flat out to come near me if my hair was straight. She still plays with my hair and if her father touches it she says nooooo wayyyyyy.

You made my day with that. Thanks
