Haha, aw this thread is great! My DH gets home from work after me some days and after he asks how my day is he'll say "Your hair is really curly today" or my favorite "Great root curl today!!" The first time he said that I practically fell over! So he WAS paying attention and knows what that is!!

When I'm having a bad day, my SO mentions how long my hair is getting. (He knows I'm growing it out)

I just love this thread...what an awesome way to lift my spirits.

If we are out and about, my partner will not hesitate to point out someone with less than stellar curls and whisper to me, "That poor woman really needs my baby's help", lol.

SO is not so much into hair but he knows I am (I wonder how??). Anywho - when we do see a curly when we are out and about who really needs to check into the CG method or DT or something he will always say - she needs more conditioner and take some tech tips from you.

I showed my husband this thread and he said, "See! And you say that men never listen!" Haha! He was also very happy to know that other partners get to "experience" what he does.

It is pretty funny how many hair (and general beauty) terms have become part of our...couplespeak...you know, those words and phrases that you use with your partner but that may mean nothing to others.

My husband is used to the obsessiveness. He knows I always tackle something new with single-minded doggedness in the beginning and then eventually I mellow out. Ooooh if I could only be so obsessive about cleaning!

yesterday he grabbed me by the shoulders and abruptly said, "HAIR!". He then narrowed his eyes at me as if inspecting me. He's such a goofball. Then he said, "Oooh you're still good, no twitching."

It's part of a college assignment. 5 of us choreographing and staging (in the classroom) a performance based on our interests. Well I figured I'd get the ball rolling by copping to my hair obsession and we took it from there. I have no idea how I'm going to create movements-- I'll think if something.

SBB! That's so awesome! You could start with movements that are all all chaotic and stiff and at the end you could use smooth wave like motions.

Sorry, like you needed my help lol. I just think that's a neat project you're working on

SBB, not that you need my help also but I love this idea because it represents both the hair itself and how we are when we embrace our hair...there is more flow when we are natural...okay, I am really excited about your project now!

Apparently I talk about curl formation and the critical drying period a lot, because when I'm teasing my sister, she knows to threaten to touch my wet hair. I always, always, ALWAYS back off pronto.

I love these ideas. Not to guano, but on the drive home I was thinking about starting with stiff self-conscious movements, bound hair, and maybe with some movement or gesture that represents a kernel of desire for naturalness. I thought of a towel or piece of cloth on my head to signify the need for the straight and swingy, and maybe evolving from there.

Default Awesome thread!

My darling fiance is well-trained, too. He has learned to always compliment my hair first, before my outfit or whatever... I just love hearing "Your hair looks great today." Can't get enough.

And when we have to share a bathroom, he asks me if it's a 2nd day hairday or not... he knows it determines how long I'll be in there!
