Best Curl Compliments

Well, I've had quite a few here on this board and on my fotki!

I think the best one, was today when I found out that I'm actually someone's hair idol. What?! OMGyay!

And one time in high school, this boy told me he liked my weave. At the time, I was really insulted that he thought that it wasn't my real hair. I've never even had a weave, so it just blew my mind. Looking back, that is a HUGE compliment! That meant my hair was looking so darned good that he thought it couldn't be real! Wow!

By the way, thank you for starting this thread. I needed it today. You guys are great!!!
I have 3c hair that I haven't straightened in over 5 years. It's just past shoulder length when dry, and almost waist length when pulled straight.

9/02/08 Went CG
05/12/09 Still CG. Cowashing with VO5 Lavender Luster. I then condition with Giovanni Smooth as Silk. Styling with VO5 Lavender Luster conditioner with my wide-toothed comb.

Not to Guano but....Now that we've all got a neck sprain from patting ourselves on the back How about this variation on the theme....

I have had days when people have complimented/raved/drooled over my hair when I KNEW I was having a VERY BAD hair day (poof/frizz/whatEVER). All I could feel was downright embarrasment at them thinking THAT was my hair (well, it is, but you get the product-laden drift) and usually I make some kind of self-depreciating remark that reeks of self-conciousness.

Am I alone in this?

I LOVE that!!

I'm always, always, having people ask if my curls are natural. I think I get more compliments on the length than the curl though. The best ones come from strangers and children... I think because I know they're sincere and not just trying to make me feel good. Generally the comments I get are "You have amazing hair" or "I wish my hair looked like yours."

Probably the best compliment I've ever had was when someone told me it was highly unusual to have this long of hair and still have great curls. But the most memorable ones were times like when a guy friend told me that my hair was even more beautiful with the moon shining on it. I could go on and on.....

I do get the odd compliment on what I think are really bad hair days. It makes me realize that I'm too self-conscious and other people see me differently than I see myself.

I usually get most compliments when I think my hair looks it's worst. I think the wild look works for me.

Hairdressers always tell me that most people would kill for one of my bad hair just goes to show that we don't really see ourselves the way others do. I also think that being involved with a curly community like this can change our ideas of what looks good and what we aspire to may be very different than what others think looks good in general. It's pretty easy to get obsessed with frizz when, really, I see lots of people with beautiful curly hair and I don't even notice a little frizz.

My best friend has been out of the country for the last 3 months and she's only seen my hair straight or pulled back. She told me that my curls look "flirty."
"Well I love that dirty water. Oh, Boston, you're my home!"
A man (in a non-skeezy way - I was friends with him and his wife) almost always saw me with my hair up due to work. One day, he saw it down and told me that I had Pre-Raphaelite hair. I thought that was cool.

Med/Coarse, porous curly.
