I'm sure you guys have heard of those "that awkward moment" phrases, especially on Facebook! I thought it would be fun to make it hair related!

I'll start.

That awkward moment when ... you find a bobby pin several days after taking down an updo style :cheese:

    That awkward moment when...

    You've just done your "big chop". Then the song "Whip My Hair" comes on the radio and you have zero hair to whip...

    Happened to me several times. lol

    That awkward moment when...

    A stranger walks up to you and asks, "How did you get your hair to do that?" while reaching out to touch it, and you have to quickly move your head away... Or has that only happened to me?...

    That awkward moment when you compliment your cousin's TWA and then your pa-pa comes out of nowhere saying he doesn't like that "old dry q-tip hair" and tells her she should get her hair "done up in the jerry-curls" like yours.

    And then grandma comes behind him talking that good hair bad hair nonsense.

    Sigh.

    That awkward moment when you go to the bathroom at work and realize you've got a bunch of white ish in your hair because you assumed that leave-in / gel combination would dry clear. :neutral:

    That awkward moment when...

    You do a twist out that looks bangin only to find a big a$$ twist hanging on the side of your head once you're at work and you've been seeing strangers all day who didn't say squat diddly and you're stuck wondering how the hell a big ol twist manages to go unnoticed in the front of your head.

    That awkward moment when...

    You leave your house with an awesome twist out only to have the humidity turn it into a hot mess by the time you get to school. And your friends who were on the bus with you say nothing.

    That awkward moment when you walk into the bathroom and look in the mirror and say "oh crap, has my hair really looked like this all night/day?!"

    That awkward moment when, in your relaxer/transitioning days, you're on the toilet wiping your bum and there are some long ass hairs on the tissue, so you make a mental note to buy 100 tubes of Veet, before remembering you washed your hair a few hours ago and some of the hairs must've got stuck between your bum cheeks...

    (was that just me??? Too much info? :confused5:)
    My hair is in the 4s, low in porosity, high in density and coarse. :happy6:

    LMAO @ bulletin board

    That awkward moment when a sexy guy is talking to you and notices some lint in your hair and reaches to help pull it out but didn't realize how tangled in your kings they were...

    :(

    That awkward moment when...

    You decide to go out and run some errands while you deep condition your hair with a plastic baggy on your head that you thought would be obscured by your hat, only to see your reflection and realize that your plastic cap is peeking out from underneath your scarf and hat all around the perimeter of your head. And still, nobody...said...anything.

    Awkward moment when a cute very hot stranger walked across the room to my table and said "I love your hair" and then walked away. Another time a guy came up to me at the gas station and asked who does my hair. I do. Then he walks off.
    Im like hey what about the rest of me?? My hair gets more play than i do
    Yes, it's real. No, you can't touch it. :wav:
