You know you spend too much time talking about your curls when...
 
1. You are with your husband at a formal event and in walks an older woman with the most horribly brushed out BSL hair I have ever seen in my life and your husband blurts out, "Now there's a curly who thinks she has straight hair. Maybe at her age, she missed the curly hair revolution", and then tries to take a picture of it.

2. Your husband walks in the bathroom at 7 in the morning, all bleary-eyed and says, "Good curl formation today. You should post a picture on curlyq.com."

While I am not sure why he calls this site curlyq.com, the comments above just cracked me up...and all in a 12 hour period.

By the way, my husband is a no-nonsense 40 year old Marine Corps officer, which makes his observations even funnier to me.

LOL, that's great!! My SO doesn't make comments on anyone else really, but the other day he was watching me do my hair in the morning very intently and we had this conversation:

Me: *stares back* What are you doing?
Him: Watching you
Me: Yes, why?
Him: I'm trying to figure out what you're doing
Me: I'm scrunching in gel
Him: What does that do?
Me: Gel? It holds the style until it dries, you know that.
Him: No, I mean, what does scrunching do?
Me: Well... I guess it helps form the curls
Him: Oh, see, that's what I thought. I thought you were separating and forming them. I guess it works.
Me: Yes, it does.

lol.

:sign5: !!!!!!

That is absolutely excellent. What a keeper you've got there, desert flower!

My guy is similar, and I just love it. Yesterday, he said, "Your hair is so curly today! And no frizz! You must have used your kinky swirly curly custard!"

You have to love a man like this. It means he's been listening. And caring. Wow.

(I love the curlyq site, though. That's pretty awesome.)

I love those comments dessert flower. My DH just asks if it's a good curly day? When I make a negative comment about frizz, etc., he always responds that he doesn't notice stuff like that! Is he well trained or what? I suspect we all most be a little odd to live with in that respect.

ellageorgina 06-10-2009 11:52 AM

Haha, that's so funny, you girls have them well trained!! Maybe I can get my SO to become like that... hmmm... I wonder how?! lol.

ninja dog 06-10-2009 11:55 AM

Great thread.

desert flower 06-10-2009 11:59 AM

Haha! They are great when they notice things...especially when they only notice the good stuff! My husband is quite observant but won't say a word when there is something off unless it's so funny (smeared eyeliner all over my face after a good cry) that he can't control himself!

I remember my 90 year old grandma's advice when I got married:

Don't point out anything bad about yourself because whatever you keep saying about yourself, your husband will eventually believe. Men are much more observant than they let on. If you have a small chest (um, thanks Grandma!), and keep complaining over and over, he will one day think, "Wow. She really is small-chested. I never noticed that."

Sometimes I wonder...

That advice may be the best I've had in months. Thanks for sharing that!

I just totally laughed out loud at that one.

My SO tries to still listen about my hair but I'm sure I've bored him to death with it by now. He pretends though and doesn't tease when ANOTHER package comes in the mail. And he does comment on particularly good hair days. In fact this morning he said he wanted to stay home from work because my hair smelled so good...too bad he couldn't ;)

BEERIT 06-10-2009 01:01 PM

see my DF (dear fiance) always walks in from work as as soon as he sees me sitting here on the computer he immediately asks what I'm doing and answers himself with "nothing just sitting on curl talk"

LikeAustralia 06-10-2009 01:04 PM

LOL, kind of unrelated, but one day I announced to my SO that his brother was a GP (Golden Penis). He looked at me like :scratch: and I explained what it was, so he agreed and then paused, "Did you get this from that curl website?"..."Yes"...and he mumbled "Bunch of man-haters..." LOL

wavy wonder 06-10-2009 01:26 PM

this is great! Desertflower my hubs sounds like you with the why don't you go and post a picture of your hair:)
yesterday i had salt on the bathroom counter. He asked what craziness I was up to.
He came home from playing cards last friday and i had coco powder and oil on the counter. Strangely enough he knew it was for my hair. I thought for sure he would have thought I had made him brownies:tongue:

misspam 06-10-2009 01:53 PM

What a great idea for a thread! :happy7:

desert flower - My husband as well, refers to nc.com as curlyq.com and us curlies as curly-q's. :lol: I just have to kiss him when he says stuff like that. So cute and he fully supports my hair adventures.

Every morning before he leaves for work, he gives me a humidity and dew point report, and when it's good, he says "Sounds like it's going to be a good hair day for you curly-q's." He is definitely a keeper!

loewin 06-10-2009 02:16 PM

Your husbands all sound rather sweet :toothy8:.

My husband has let me put my concoctions on his hair.. and has started to use my products in a show of support (he has the prettiest 3b hair). I say good.. I can go shopping for products again sooner. :toothy4:

ReddishRocks 06-10-2009 02:25 PM

My husband will tease me about all the bottles, but he loves you people more than LHC (every time I go there, I start bunning my hair different ways, which he hates, LOL!). I ask him - bottles or hairsticks? He knows what it means. ;)

I don't know if he even noticed that he did it, but I was whining about a little halo frizz I got the the other day from not waiting long enough to scrunch, and he just kissed it. Just kissed my halo frizz outta nowhere, LOL!

We're both curly-wavies, and he's started raiding my stash! He wanted to know where HIS tub of LOOB was the other day. I said, "YOURS?!" :D

mlle_carrie 06-10-2009 02:41 PM

oh my...these stories are so cute! My SO tolerates my babble about all things hair, but I try not to go overboard talking to him about it. My sisters are both curlies, so I can always talk to them. One thing he does to kind of poke fun at me I think, is whenever I make a comment about the state of my hair, he'll say, "Oh my God, me too" about his own bald head.

Jess the Mess 06-10-2009 03:22 PM

I do have to say that SO gave up poo with me and uses my condish and shampoo bars. He does tell his friends to ditch the poo too. I just was so excited to go CG that I overloaded him with hair info, science, and products and that's awfully boring to my buzz cut SO. He just pretends to listen now and that's fine with me :happy7:
