Dumbest comment regarding your hair?

wholelottalovewholelottalove Posts: 168Registered Users
Mine- (regarding my 2c/3ab hair)
"wait, is your hair real?"
Yes, yes it is.
"are you sure?"
I'm pretty sure...
"well white girls can't have hair like that."
Well.....mind explaining what this here on my head is then?

Also

Guy: I think super curly hair is sexy, like on a victorias secret model
Me: I've never seen a VS model with super curly hair...
Guy: like this *points to a model with big curling iron waves*
Me: Thats not super curly, I have curly hair
Guy: No, your hair is big and kinky. She has p*** star curls, you have carrot top curls.

    Porn start curls!?!? Wow the guy you were talking is a huge ***ing idiot T.T

    The stupidest comments I've heard usually go along the line of people not accepting anything above 2,3 curls

    Them: "oh gosh look how curly their hair is... It's so... Ugly"

    It doesn't really matter, curly hair in general is fine. Yeah, the guy was a tool. And I agree, curls up to a 3a are the only ones that get compliments. I didn't have super curly hair until puberty, and it didn't really grow in enough to be that noticable until I was 16. So I had 2b hair that gradually got up to 3a and I got so many compliments! And then it got to 3b/c and I rarely hear compliments unless they're from fellow curlies.

    I once was ordering a drink and some hill-jack in bib overalls looks at me and says "why would you do that to your hair? And does anyone actually like that?" I wasn't sure what to say because I didn't think people that wore overalls for social gatherings could form sentences. 😄

    Had a woman behind me in the check out line at Target tap me on the shoulder, when I turned around she was holding up a hair straightener,
    "Do you know if this is a good brand ?"

    I was momentarily floored that she assumed I knew what was a good hair straightener just because I had curly hair.

    As politely as I could, I simply replied, " I don't straighten my hair".

    She went quite red and started stuttering an apology and back tracking.

    I think she got some curly education that day ;)

    During an assembly in grade school, I felt something touch my hair. When I turned to look, the boy who had felt my hair was very embarrassed. He thought he had touched it gently enough that I wouldn't feel it. Then he said, "I just wanted to see what it felt like." "Well, what did it feel like?" "Hair." "And what did you expect?" "Well it looks so wiry." In his defense, at this time my hair was always a huge frizz ball, and we were probably 10 years old.

    A friend of mine was actually complaining about her slightly wavy hair, saying she missed it when it was bone straight. She then pointed to me and said, "At least it's not a bad as hers." HAHAHAHA. I guess curly hair = bad then?

    A few times, people have asked me how early I wake up to curl my hair each morning. They also ask what "am I," I guess regarding race. I do have that Jewish curl.

    Also, there are always the people who suggest straightening and those who think my hair is probably super greasy and disgusting when they find out that I don't use shampoo.

    However, people are typically super sweet! My family loves my curls, and even when I think I am having a bad hair day, my curly friends will say stuff like, "I am jealous of your hair; it curls perfectly!" and my straight-haired friend will say, "I wish my hair were like that! You have beautiful hair." :D It feels great! Once, someone at the Starbucks counter called me back to compliment my hair. This never really happened before CG.

    So yeah, there are some annoying people, but the rest are just wonderful!

    I've been asked a few times if I've gotten a perm. This is mostly from people who haven't seen me in a long time....those that always knew me with my former straight hair. I went from barely a wave all my life to 2C/3A hair after my last child was born. There is also a girl at work that started calling me 'curly'. I'll take that as a compliment :o)

    Before I was CG, a co-worker/"friend" told me several times "You really should get a Brazillian (blow out)" when I was going through my hair anxiety. This is after I had repeatedly said I hate my hair straight and would never do a Brazillian.

    Same person also told me later that the repeated blowouts have destroyed her curls. WTH?!?

    I stopped talking to her about my hair. Duh.

    me (obsessing about my hair like normal): I like how my curls turned out today, but I wish I could make the top lay nicer

    coworker: curly hair is supposed to be messy

    a week later with the same coworker, the second I walk into work

    coworker: how much crap did you put on your hair today
    me: huh?
    coworker: I bet you spend more on the stuff you put in your hair than what you put in your stomach
    me: huh?

    she has straight hair (obviously) but I feel very badly for her daughter with beautiful curly hair. She said her daughter grew out of her curls the last time she got it cut... I'm not sure I believe her

    "You'd look really pretty with straight hair."
    - This was coming from a girl with amazing 3b curls who has straightened her hair every day since she was 15. Now I just feel sorry for her.

    I've also had people ask How I planned to control my hair for interviews, if I'd flat iron, like it is some wild animal that needs to be tamed and straightened out.

    :scratch:It always shocks and annoys me that some people think curly hair is something that should be 'controlled' and therefore flat ironed (fried) to within an inch of it's life for it to look presentable.
