The strangest rude comment i've ever gotten about my hair

Like Tree17Likes

All my life, I've heard crap like:

"Is that a wig?" (It is not)
"Is that your REAL hair?" (It is)
"It must take you a really long time to do your hair every day!" (It does not)
"That's some seriously big hair" (It's curly, I can't help the volume!)
....and the one that floored me the most came from my now ex-husband:
"If you'd just straighten your hair, dye it blonde and grow it longer like Bonnie's, you'd be perfect!" (Turns out he'd been having an affair with "Bonnie", the teller where we used to do our banking!)

People are such jerks.

wavering with cg since 2008.
mod cg since 4/11.
no color since 6/11.
no shampoo since 5/12.

my arsenal: kinky curly. deva. shea moisture curl and shine. gvp conditioning balm. beauty without cruelty leave in. flax seed gel + agave + epsom salt. ion effective care treatment and reconstructor. biosilk rock hard gelee. garnier pure clean finishing paste (shocking, but true). open to suggestions!

it sure is hard to find the balance for this dry, fine, mixed texture hair... with products.

I'm so confused at her comment. I can't even remember the sound my hair makes when scrunching. I think I would have responded with, "What? You should probably just kill yourself anyway."

I'm on a boat.
People should be willing to stand by the things they say. Or they shouldn't say them. If your opinion can't stand in the light of day...maybe it should stay in the your head?

"Are you wearing a wig?"
"Is that your hair?"
"You look crazy with hair like that"
"You honestly need to buy a straightener"
"You need to get your hair relaxed"
"Here comes the walking-talking pompom"
Things I use: Olive Oil, Canola oil, rosemary oil, aloe vera gel, shea butter, mayonnaise, eggs, milk, bananas

Everything I use is 100% natural. I make most of them myself because then I'm sure what's in it and I'm sure nothing's added, it's pure, it's natural.

Things I avoid: Mineral oil (codename: Baby oil), heat (I'm a total, no hair driers, no straighteners, no curling irons, no flat irons, no hot combs...nada), sodium chloride

Growing plan: At least 6 inches longer in a year.
At least some of y'all have volume. My hair is flat in the back and very fine and not very dense. I swear you can feel my scalp if you put your hand in it...and you don't have to dig through it....lmao. I can't wait til my hair grows out! It's barely APL when straight!

Who has a flat semi-fro? Lmao.
I love your volume, squirrley. I used to have a ton, but as I am getting older, I'm losing it. It makes me sad.
My younger sister has none. She has curls but you can see her scalp through them, it's kind of sad. She used to straighten too much, I think she thought that made it look like volume and thickness. Now she is embracing her curls.

Those people who don't realize how rude they are being have no manners. Period. Your hair rocks.

As for the original poster's rude friend, she sounds incredibly shallow if she felt the need to say a noise was enough to make her want to kill herself - esp. an innocuous noise like that. I would've said, "don't let me stop you."
