The father taps me on the shoulder, and says "she will go for your hair, she likes pretty hair". And sure enough, the girl reached for my hair and started running her hands down the curls. She was adorable, and I will always remember with a smile

I know this isn't the same as a compliment from a stranger but I was at my boyfriend's house the other night and just randomly out of nowhere he said, "I like your curly hair! I mean, I like your straight hair too, I like it both ways. But I like your curly hair."

It was totally out of the blue and it made me really happy...

2c/3a, fine, low porosity.

Poo: Garnier Fructis Pure Clean (yes, it has a mild sulfate, but I have Teflon hair)
Co-wash: VO5 Kiwi Lime Clarifying Conditioner
LI: GVPCB or
Keratin Complex Vanilla Bean Deep Conditioner (nothing to do with keratin straightening, just a nice conditioner)
Style: KCCC + Pantene Curl Shaping Gel (winter) or LALSG (summer)
Dry: Diffuse or air dry, depends on my mood

So I just got back from a road trip and I got lots of hair compliments while I was Nashville from both women and men. One woman said "I love your hair. it looks so healthy" which I always enjoy hearing. I gave NC a plug.

Then today I was passing through Mobile and I walked in a restaurant and one of the employees announces "I absolutely love your hair." then she goes in the back, comes back and announces "I want your hair."

Being black and having tightly curly coily hair I like being a testimony to show we can have long healthy beautiful natural hair.

In english class we were working in the library and my english teacher came up to the table that me and 3 other students were working at to tell us something and when she got over to me she said that I never seemed to have a bad hair day and I had the prettiest hair in my grade and I felt amazing for the rest of the day

I was once discussing a school project with my teacher and suddenly, she went quiet and asked: "Is your hair that curly naturally" and I was like "umm, yes..." and then she said "It's so beautiful! Like real corkscrews. So unfair!"

And another time she told me "You know... if I was to choose whatever hair I wanted, I would choose yours! It's soo beautiful!"

Made my day


Otherwise, I mostly get compliments from my friends... and the girls in school use to tell me that my hair's "just get curlier and curlier every day". I guess that's meant as a compliment :P

Today, my hair was very poofy and frizzy, but I didn't put it up (which I usually do if I am going to go out). I decided to just let it be. When I went to the Dollar store, a lady said, "Wow you have such pretty hair." It made me smile, since the whole time I was so insecure that it looked so bad and frizzy. After that, my perception changed. You really don't know how much a compliment can help another person.

Suave for co-wash and rinse out. SM restorative as leave in. Ogx mousse, la looks, la bella, and cantu natural for stylers. Clarify and low poo once a month.
Curls
I always get compliments from friends & strangers, not always from family. So sad.
It was so funny and heartening. I recently got a new job and had to do some pre-employment testing. Each person, asked me if my hair was naturally curly, then said it was pretty and asked how I get the ringlets. All of them were fellow curlies too! So, I mentioned this site and the curly girl method.

Last night my ex, Mr Harley, and I went to TGIF for dinner. We sat in a booth in the bar area. At one point 7 or 8 waitresses and bartenders (female and male, all in their 20's) were standing together talking and every once in awhile one of them would look over our way. I just assumed they were checking to see if we needed anything (service is always fab at this restaurant).
Then one of the waitresses came over and said that they were all talking about how great my hair was. That always puts a big smile on my face.

Returning from vacation, I had my hair in a messy bun; I got two compliments in less than 12 hours on my hair. I usually feel self conscious about my hair when I have it in a messy bun, because the "natural highlights" (aka gray) are very evident, so it was nice to get those compliments!
Today I'm still getting used to trying the CG method out. I had a client ask if I got my hair permed and that they were jealous of my curls!!! What!
This guy from my school told me i got some sexy hair and another guy from my spanish class told me its guapa on me )
I was shopping at a Target where I live and this new clerk (lady in her early 70s) who I presume works part-time. She had waited on me a few times before but just randomly said, "I think I've seen you here before. I remember you by your beautiful curly hair."

No more than a week or so later, I'm at Walgreens and an African American gal (probably mid 30s) is the checkout clerk. I complimented her on her curly hair and later explained since I have curly hair I like to compliment others. She replied: "I wish I had yours, mine is borrowed."

I consider those to be my "proud curly moments."
