A curly comment to ponder....

Hi everyone!

So I had some people here to have cocktails and as they were leaving I commented on one womans lovely yet very frizzy curly bunned 3c hair. "Oh how nice these curls!". She replied looking directly at me, "Oh poor me, I was BORN with them".

LOL!

I said, "I hear ya, I was born with mine too!".

Does that mean she was thinking my were salon manufactured or just that she was hating her hair?

I dunno. I wish I knew her better I would have given her the addy to this site.

-3A?
-Fine, ii (almost iii) thickness

Sounds like she is unhappy with her hair.

She definitely sounds unhappy with her hair. Also she must not have been thinking straight because I would never dream of saying something like that to someone with beautiful curly hair such as yours. Maybe you're right, she assumed yours aren't natural?

Before I went CG, I honestly assumed that anybody with *pretty* curly hair had had some kind of salon or chemical treatment performed to get it that way. I assumed this because my hair *never* looked good or conditioned (even though, looking back, I did sometimes get compliments on it -- but I think I heard: "You have nice hair. For a curly girl." You know what I mean?).

She's probably making the same assumption. She can't believe yours is real because her own is so uncooperative.

As popular as thermal reconditioning and relaxing are, there are people who get perms to have what we have. I'd take it as a (kind of strange) compliment: she's can't manage her own curls, so she assumes that your perfect curls are man-made.

If she said she didn't like her curls in some way I would have suggested this site in some way to let her know it's fabulous having curly hair. She just doesn't know all of the fun tricks yet! Gently push her in the fun direction if you see her again because having curly hair is so much fun! I never thought I could agree with my curls! LOL!

Thank you for your replies!

I sooooooo badly wanted to throw away her sulfate shampoo and slick a DT potion on her. If I see her again I will try to talk about it. I do tell people about this site all the time. Many don't speak enough English to actually join maybe. But this lady yesterday was from the US. We exchanged our comments just as they were leaving so I could not speak more.

I think she could use some and some ing.
