Flatiron Vultures!!

Like Tree36Likes

Yesterday, I was at a mall and there was a little booth where they sell flatirons and man,the girl's eyes lit up when she saw me coming! I told her no thank you, I don't use any styling tools on my hair. She said that it would look real nice. I told her that I have a GHD sitting at home,gathering dust,and there is NOTHING wrong with my hair and it looks great the way it is!(And it was a good hair day) She stood there with her mouth agape as I walked off,smiling. Ha!

I laughed and we walked away, leaving her standing there with her mouth open!

I also had my hair straight one day, and had them ask me if I would let them curl it. Umm, no. It took me forever to get it straight, why would I want you to curl it back up? I can't stand those booths!

This happened to me to! I was at the mall and the first time I walked by, I knew the guy was eyeing me. Second time he tried to stop me saying "hey you, you look real smart.." and I said "NO! I love my curly hair!" and kept on walking

These flatiron vultures are in every major mall here and it is funny to see them look at my hair and don't approach me when I have a thick fro. But when I have twists in my hair, they are all ready with the iron in there hand asking to straighten my hair. I look at the person like I am about to batter them with that iron if they don't leave me alone.I guess, you or your hair needs to look more intimidating.

I remember going to the mall without my hair straightened and one of them stopped me and told me she could FIX my curls and make them more curly and look natural! HELLO!!! MY HAIR IS ALREADY CURLY AND NATURAL!

I loathe those people! They are presumptuous and judgmental about our hair and I find that so rude - when I told a guy at the shopping centre that I was happy with my curly hair and loved it he said 'REALLY?' in a very snooty way that made me want to take his straighteners and shove them where the sun don't shine
UK based, Curly from birth 2b-2c fairly porous with cherub tendencies and frizz halo! Faves include KCKT and Keracare LIs, Deva Curl, CCCCL, Ecosyler gel and Be Curly Curl Enhancer. I donít mind the odd cone - shhh CG since August 2012
i was at the plaze and they got these straightening/curling ppl there, and i walked past i saw that they had a few ppl that they were straightening/curling, the second time i walked passed there wasnt anyone, and of cause they pounced on me.
the guy was trying to do it on me saying that it looks natural and O fizz! i was like na i dont use any heat or chemicals in my hair, n he looked surprised n was like no fizz? that was a really good hair day, n that was as little fizz as i ever have....... soooo rude!

my hair: 3c, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
my hair loves conditioner only styling!
my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.

I also blog about my hair journey, please feel free to read and comment/ask questions http://www.naturallycurly.com/blogs/...air-blogs/2494
what my sisters and I do when we walk past mall kiosks (who the heck wants to work one of those anyways???) we cut them off mid sentence and say, "No thanks, I'm allergic" no matter what they offer--products, phones, sunglasses... hahaha... always makes em confused!

They almost always flag me down and I say no thank you every time. Now I walk on the other side of my husband to avoid them. I love my curls and am not going to fry them ever again thank you very much! 😉 there was a man once that said "I can make your hair pretty." I just said no it's ok and walked away. I am a proud curly girl for life!

Ooh boy the look I gave my sister I didn't even have to say anything my sister grabbed the iron curled that little chunk of straight hair and said "she doesn't do that" and we left
