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.
Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it.
